Lacking in space but not in the festive spirit? Transform a ledge into a make shift puja mantle with some quick inspiration
Our memories of Diwali involves getting up at the crack of down, getting dressed in festive finery and gathering in the puja room for morning prayers. It was always accompanied by a feeling of calm and an excitement of the mithai-filled day ahead. And it is around times like these when we miss our own puja room. If you too, like us, are dealing with a pigeon-holed existence thanks to city-living, worry not, we have you covered. Follow us easy styling tips to convert an existing console or ledge into a calm, puja corner this Diwali.
Tips for creating a quick puja corner:
1. Work with deep jewelled tones. Mix them with gold
2. Use not more than two colours in the entire look
3. Think beyond the ordinary. You can opt for an unusual idol as your centrepiece. And that brass plate you use for flowers, how about swapping that as the backdrop for the idol?
