Let your Entryway set the Tone for Diwali

The entrance to your home reflects your personality. The first impression is the best impression, they say, and we tell you how to make a lasting one this festive season:

  • Say it with flowers. Flowers are the most beautiful way to greet your Diwali guests at the entrance to your home. Decorate with flowers – be it as an arrangement in a vase or in a floral or regular rangoli – to create festive appeal. Decorate tastefully, ensuring that you don’t clutter up the space.


  • Paint your door. Give your front door a lick of high-gloss paint. This will ensure that it stands out and welcomes people in style.


  • Use contemporary rangolis. Ready-made modern rangolis and floating rangolis can be purchased from the market. They are embellished with kundan, crystals and mirrors. If you add diyas and tea lights, they will give your entryway a stylish look.


  • Paint a wall. Give a bright and warm coat of paint to the wall of your foyer. If you don’t feel like going for paint, wallpaper is another option. But ensure that the colours and patterns are in harmony with the room that follows.

  • Use an attractive exclusive nameplate. Hang a metallic or wooden nameplate on your front door and inscribe your house number or your name on it. Make the alphabets stand out; try wood, plastic or vinyl. Top things off with a lovely toran.


  • Embellish with accessories. Decorate your entryway with accessories that show off your style. Door knockers, small bells, wind chimes, metal artifacts or travel souvenirs can make an impact.


  • A place to sit for a bit. A console table works well in the foyer. You can create a seasonal vignette. For Diwali, a jar candle, flowers and a Ganesha idol are ideal. A small pouf or mooda provide a place to sit while putting on shoes.
