Holi Home Decor Trends

A Symphony of Colours

Holi's heart lies in its explosion of colours, each with a symbolic meaning. “In 2024, we envision fiery reds translating into bold accent walls or statement furniture pieces, injecting energy. Sunny yellows can be used in the form of cheerful throw pillows or pops of sunshine in artwork, fostering a sense of optimism. Invigorating blues can find their way onto bedroom accent walls, promoting relaxation. Further, layers of these hues can create colour-blocking patterns on furniture or rugs, or introduce them through statement lighting fixtures”, says Ar. Nikita Bajaj Pathak, Founder and Principal Architect at Design21.

Rangoli Inspired Stories

Rangoli, an art form central to Holi celebrations, offers a treasure trove of design inspiration. “This year, we see a shift from literal translations to a more fine application of these patterns, which are a version of the international Mandalas. Consider incorporating geometric motifs inspired by Rangoli into throw pillows, wall stencils, or even custom-designed rugs. Stencilled patterns on furniture or cabinetry can add a touch of cultural flair, while laser-cut metal screens with Rangoli-inspired designs can create a dynamic interplay of light and shadow”, asserts Ar. Uphar Chibber, Founder & Principal Architect of LTDF Architecture + Interior Design.

A Touch of Outdoor Decor

Holi decor can extend outdoors, blurring the lines of interiors and exteriors, and reflecting the spirits of the season. “This year, scatter vibrantly coloured throw pillows on outdoor furniture, inviting guests to relax and socialise in a cheerful atmosphere. Introduce splashes of colour with planters overflowing with blooming flowers in hues echoing the festival's palette. Consider incorporating hand-painted wind chimes or colourful fabric streamers that dance in the breeze, adding a touch of whimsy and movement.

Additionally, outdoor tablescapes can also add a touch of cultural authenticity. Colourful flower arrangements in traditional Indian vases or DIY elements filled with vibrant succulents can bring the festive spirit to the table”, suggests Ar. Sumit Dhawan, Founder and Principal Architect at Cityspace' 82 Architects.

Holi-inspired design is a way of bringing the joy and vibrancy of the festival into your everyday life. This year, let us incorporate these design elements, and create a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also reflects cultural heritage and fosters a sense of community!
