    hassle free makeover
    Sometimes the smallest of changes can make a huge difference in the way your room appears. Here are 10 easy ways to give your room a makeover without having to go through the hassle of completely redoing it.

     

    Clear the mess:

    The first, most important thing to do when considering giving your room a makeover is to clear the clutter. Getting organizers, removing the mess, clearing out space and arranging everything in a proper way, is the way to begin redecorating your room.

     

    Add a touch of green:

    pots

    Adding a plant in your room gives it a freshness and vibrancy that changes the feel of your interiors. It brings energy and life into your room and brightens up the ambiance. If you don’t have a green finger, adding artificial greens will also help.

     

     Rearrange the cushions:

    A few cushions of different shapes and sizes can add color and character to the room. Different patterns and bright colors can go a long way in changing the feel of the interiors.

     

    Rearrange the furniture:

    It is amazing how just rearranging what is already there can change the whole feel of your room. Play around with the way your furniture is set up. Remove the rug, change the placement of your bed side table, move your bed a little and your room will have a whole new feel.

     

    Cover the blank walls:

    Adding a few paintings or pictures to cover up the blank walls in your rooms can make a huge difference. Graphic prints are another option that can be considered. The way you decorate your room speaks about you as a person and adding art or photographs to your wall can make a huge difference to your interiors.

     

     Change knobs and handles:

    Replace your old boring handles on drawers and almirahs with quirky, decorative ones. The little pop of colour will add a whole new dimension to your room.

     

     Don’t be scared to experiment:

     Not everything in your room must match. It gets rather dull and boring, when everything matches. You can experiment and play around with the color and patterns. There need not be a particular color scheme at play. Having fun while doing up your room is the best way to give it a makeover.

     

    Accessorize your room:

    vases for room

    Add a vase to your room. Put some frames on your table. Decorate the little trinkets you have been saving up and give your room a whole new feel and vibrancy to it.

     

    Play with the curtains:

     The curtains give a lot of character to a room. Changing the curtains or experimenting with them can do a lot to change the feel of the room.

     

    Experiment with the lighting:

    Ambient lighting goes a long way in changing the feel and atmosphere of a room. Adding a few candles, or a new lampshade will change the essence of the interiors.

  • FRAGRANCES - The defining factor around houses

    Posted on by Halo Themes

    fragrance

    Each space in your house has its own distinct character. With colours, accessories and personal items, we give each room a definite feel to give it a purpose. Fragrance is also an accessory that’s absolutely integral to give definition to your house.

    fragrances

    Different fragrances serve different purposes. The way they make a particular room smell influences the kind of energy and mood you’d want that particular room to carry.

    We’ll go over a few basics pertaining to the use of fragrance in your house.

     1. Fragrance around the house should be a mellow affair. Take care that the smell is not too overpowering but just a faint hint that gives a kick to the senses of the people in the room.

    2. Fragrance can be added into a room in various forms- potpourri, fragrant candles, diffusers and the like.

    Fragrance
    3. You can use fragrant oils, which are a combination of natural and artificial substances to induce a particular smell.
    4.You can also use essential oils around the house. They are not only fragrant but also have therapeutic and medicinal properties. Did you know lavender essential oils help induce a good night’s sleep?
    5.Your living room needs a subtle smell that is welcoming, something floral in nature. But if you’re having guests over, you can use vanilla to liven up the space with warmth and energy.

    fragrances
    6. For a kitchen, you should take care that the fragrance doesn’t get in the way of the aroma of the food. Go for something oft like basil or thyme or apple. That’s mouth-watering yet not very intrusive.
    7. The bathroom needs something fresh and fruity. Go for citrus-y fragrances that are bright and light.
    8. The bedroom needs a soothing and relaxing note of fragrance. Lavender is always a good choice for its mellow properties. But fragrances like musk, orange blossom and vanilla work wonders as well.

    scented candles
    9. When buying fragrant candles, rub your fingers around the wick to release the smell and then sniff to properly understand the kind of fragrance it will induce.
    10.If you’re not into fragrances but still want your house to smell good- go for flowers. The smell would be natural and not seem induced and the notes would be extremely faint.

    Fragrances are a great way to tie it all together in your home when it comes to how you want your house to look and feel. It tells your guest about the house in all its entirety and is a great way to turn a house into a homely space.

  • WINTER DECOR TRENDS 2016

    Posted on by Halo Themes

    For those of us who live in the scorching tropical weather for most of the year, winter is a respite! And with an adequate amount of respite, comes a whole lot of bliss that the season brings - putting to rest the old and getting ready for the new!

    Winter requires us to get prepared for the change in the air. And with that, it’s important to embrace the change into our homes as well.

    Much like our Fall home décor guide, today we are going to present to you some of the trends of the year that have cropped up specially for the seasonal chill! This season, take a cue from your favorite old movies from the golden era because the roaring twenties are here to stay! Industrial looks meeting extravagance, give your home a little bit of luxury loving!

    Here are 5 top trends of the season that you can incorporate into your homes this winter.

    COLORS

    As is customary for winter, the mood turns somber and so does the color palette. Grey's are still going strong, with different shades of it thrown together to accentuate the various hues of it. The other big color palette to explore is royal shades of blue - Midnight, Prussian, Ink. It adds an element of sophistication to your home without being too overwhelming.

    Winter decor

    TEXTURES

    Continuing from the Fall, Faux fur rugs have found a firmer place around the house. Adding to that are hide rugs that come in rustic tonalities. Sheepskin exudes a warm and quality texture when used around the home in reserved amounts. Also, Denims are back! A lot of Denim fabric around the house adds a sense of jadedness that agrees with the season. Woody elements around the house are also coveted as it adds to the element of warmth. Knitted and woven fabrics are, without a doubt, also must haves.

    Winter decor

    METALLIC

    Metallic accents are big this season. Explore different accents of metallic hues - coppers, bronze, steel and also combinations of them to give rise to more delicate tones. Pairing them with floral patterns brings out their rustic elements properly. Metallic accents can be incorporated into the house not only through color palettes but also through various pieces installed around the house - from décor items to exquisite fixtures.

    Winter Decor

    NATURALS

    It’s important to balance the metallic and dark elements of the trend with something that accentuates as well as contrasts them. Incorporate a lot of Natural elements into your home. Logs, firs, pines, acorns - they can all be used to decorate mantels and tables and bed-sides. Wreaths on the door also add to the festive season while serving key decorative aspects. Create centre pieces on porches with as many natural elements as you can get your hands on. Plants around the house are perfect additions to tie it all together.

    Winter decor

    GLASS

    Extending the industrial influence in décor from metallic, glass is also a show stealer this season. Colored glass induces a retro flavor around your home and is a breath of fresh air amongst all the somber elements we were already playing with. Mirrors with intricate panels are just as much important this season. Silver and copper detailing on the mirrors incorporates more metallic to glass and brings a touch of exuberance around the house.

    Winter decor

    The key is to go back in time and re-imagine your house against a few older decades to tie it all together. Don’t forget to add festive elements in abundance, making way for Christmas decorations and that New Year’s do you might hold in your home!
