1 Warm welcome:

A huge, impressive Ganesha in teracotta apart from being auspicious gives a welcoming, earthy and a calming appeal. So, begin by decorating your house with this centrepiece to give an arty feel to the house.

2 Modern touch:

Go for sculptural studio pottery element and place it next to an abstract ceramic art on any prominent wall. It instantly gives a contemporary and modern feel to a home. Keep the rest of the decor minimalistic to ensure that the attention does not shift from the focal piece of the house.

3 Going green:

A cluster of urns in varying shapes and sizes placed in huge spaces apart from lending an arty touch also have a rustic appeal. The greenery helps us to get the outdoor feel inside. Also since it is summer this will give a very cool feel to the house. You can also plant a few summer blooms to give a lively feel to the decor.

4 Mystique touch:

A teracotta urli can be placed in the north-eastern corner of your house. Fill it with water and roses, add floating candles at night — it will add to the mystique. If you are expecting guests go for scented candles to lend that exotic touch to your decor.

5 Vase wonder:

Tall vases can be placed on the landings of the staircase or any other dull corner which needs to be enlivened. Place a few long flower stems in them to add to the appeal.
