5 Ways To Get Festive Balcony Feels This Diwali

The festival of lights, laughter, of giving and receiving is just around the corner. Deep cleaning along with subtle or major home decor changes are synonymous with Diwali. We also love how the festive spirit is slowly manifesting – with evening card games  and family dinners, with a  gentle nip in the evening air creating a happy and festive vibe. A lot of us have already gotten to work as living areas are getting decked up as  party zones.

For those lucky ones who have verandahs and balconies, it’s a bonus as  festivities can be  extended outside. Our creative and design team has come together with their recommendations  for a festive balcony space where you can continue the party or soak in the atmosphere around for beautiful memories of this season.

Let’s get started.

Style Festive Walls

Why keep your walls silent when they can speak ? Balcony walls are our  most underrated  spaces but setting up an outdoor plant installation with the help of fairy and string lights, or macrame shelves can help style and make them Instagrammable !

Add Peace & Fluidity

Give your space some Zen – by adding ‘urulis’ filled with flowers and floating candles or gurgling indoor fountains. The sense of calm it creates can only be experienced – not merely described.

Stylish Seating

For endless and deep conversations,  your seating matters. Asides of  comfort, furniture style that’s minimalistic yet contemporary can make a world of difference to your balcony setting. Edgy bar stools or foldable furniture set up around a hand woven rug – creates a wonderful set up to admire fireworks from afar.

Get Lit

Diwali is the festival of lights so it is natural that lighting matters. Be it string lights, fairy lights or candles or lamps. This year let your balcony glow with artisanal string lights and lamps made using origami, yarn or even up-cycled material and glow with these handcrafted beauties.

Go Green

Add some green soul with your favourite plants. While you can place new pots and planters on the floor, or in a tiered arrangement – free up some  space by hanging them  from hooks you can embed  in the ceiling. The extra effort will be worth it  – given the space it will save and the atmosphere it will create.

So get inspired and enjoy an indoor-outdoor Diwali with your loved ones while soaking in the festivities and praying for a better tomorrow, full of gratitude and joy. Let your festive styled balcony play an important role this Diwali, and help you enjoy each moment as it passes by – now and always.
