Diwali is that time of the year when we put our earnest efforts in decking up our houses and making them look no less than the venue of a soiree. And, since it’s the festival of light, a triumph of good over evil, prosperity and renewal, we tend to decorate our houses anew and lend them a streak of luck. Unfortunately, often we end up squandering nature, with the excessive use of fireworks. Every year, we come up with ideas to spruce up our homes with extravagant embellishments to invoke the zeal of the festive season in every nook and corner of the house. But this year, painting the walls with strokes of the hues of nature and filling your home with exuberance of the festivities, should be an unmissable task. As the walls speak volumes in defining the aura of the house, why not paint them in the most elegant and warm colours, and at the same time bring out the devout environmentalist in you while adding to the aesthetics of your home and making it look even more opulent!
