All you have to do here is drive to a nearby home decor store and select a chandelier to reflect your style. Since Diwali is just around the corner, the stores are already filled with magnificent options to select.

In this image, it is a pendant shaped chandelier which is ideal for modernizing a living room. It can even be placed above the dining table to add a dramatic touch.

2. Define your home with Gardens

A beautiful garden in the house lets you naturally ornate the exterior. Let the garden shine in enchanting lights, making the guests curious about the indoor décor. The designers here went for glass lights to let the mirror image rule the place. With double the shine, it throws a stunning look at just the entrance of the home.

3. Ditch the Fabric Curtains

You can make a better presentation by simply replacing the traditional fabric curtains with something more passionate and glittery. Nothing other than glass curtains will suffice the purpose with utter elegance. Bring it in your house and just one or two lamp shades will be needed to create the Diwali buzz.

4. Focus on the Fragrance

Not just the lights, even a strong and captivating odor of the house can add a fun element to the house. This Diwali when you go for candle shopping, don’t forget to pick the scented ones. A scent of your choice or the guest’s choice will be perfect to fill subtle charm.

5. Tea light illumination

Although tea light illumination is underestimated for Diwali celebration, it can be your life saver this Diwali. Instead of the long, large, and the usual one, go for the small and bright ones. Being a perfect candidate for lanterns, water, and tabletop, it comes with guaranteed elegance.

6. Did you forget some lights?
