Add Life To Your Home: Go Green!

Jodhaa Home furnishings LLP

We believe that your house should be your personal sanctuary from everything else in the outside world and your home should be a warm, happy and fulfilling place. This is one of the many reasons why home furnishing stores in India are more than just stores that are stocked with furniture and furnishings that make your living space pretty. Most of us know how important colours are and how they can affect our mood and our frame of mind. However, the colour green in particular has a host of calming benefits that it lends to any space it is in.

The best way to incorporate more green into your home is to opt for indoor plants in decorating your home. Indoor plants in pots that are artistic, funky or coloured have the power to add a pop of colour to a space without being too overpowering. Apart from that, plants are also amazing agents of purifying the air in your home and giving a hint of freshness to your living space in a way that even designer home furnishings are not capable of.

One interesting and unusual way of incorporating plants into your home without having to break a sweat in terms of maintenance is to adopt succulents. Not only do succulents survive without regular sunlight, but they also need to be watered just once in a week or so. They are the perfect option to add a bit of earthiness to your room. You can buy table runners online in India and then add bits of rustic and earthiness to it by choosing to add a small succulent or a few potted succulents on the table runner.

Another exciting way of incorporating greens into your home is to work with walls. With small potted plants, you can add small hooks to your walls and hang pots there where they can sit as silent protectors of your space. Opt for air plants in case you’re planning on mounting pots to the wall because not only do they need minimal water, but they also flourish well when placed slightly above floor level. We suggest that you use wall-mounted potted plants to accentuate other accessories on your walls. You can buy photo frames, angel lights or carpets and rugs online in India and use these coupled with potted plants to make your walls seem like they are breathing.

If you’re very simple in your approach and want to keep things rather simple, we suggest that you like your windowsills with plants. Be it in traditional pots of various sizes, pastel coloured cans, tin containers or any other holders, having an assortment of plants at your window sill certainly brightens up the entire room. However, to make sure that your plants get the attention they deserve, choose complimentary window accessories to go with them. This means that you should buy simple printed curtains in bright colours as opposed to ones that have a lot of embellishments on them.

Keeping in mind the same principle, buy bed sheets online that are in more subtle colours and the prints of which are not too jazzy. After all, your aim is to compliment the lovely greenery you’ve included in your living space.

All in all, the benefits of having a few indoor plants are huge and while you do have to take care of these green beauties, they are proven to make you happier and healthier. We are completely gung-ho about going green! However, if you’re not a fan of having plants around you or if you want a splash of green without the fuss, we suggest that you get yourself a beautiful vase and regularly adorn it with cut flowers. Apart from the fact that these will add a splash or colour, fragrance and freshness to your home, they also look extremely fancy!

Renter Friendly Decorating Ideas

c709e-jodhaa-logo

For most of you who have just moved out of home and are living by yourself or with roommates, being a renter has become a huge part of your identity. There is something completely unique about the struggles, rewards and multiple rules you have to follow as a renter. While you’re certainly frolicking in your new found sense of freedom, you may also be missing out on the absolutely liberty home owners have when it comes to modifying, renovating or simply changing things around your living space. However, we firmly believe that even when you’re a renter you ought to have the power to make your living space into a true reflection of your personality. Here are some renter-friendly decorating ideas we’ve compiled –

Accessories – While accessories seem like the simplest, easiest and often cheapest way to transform a generic living space into something more customized; you’d be surprised to know that they are an often overlooked aspect of Home décor furnishings. Accessories are basically any items that can add a little sparkle, color and dimension to a space. Right from designer bed sheets in your bedroom to printed cushions online and even small show pieces arranged artfully across a bookshelf, accessories can definitely have a transformative effect on your home.

Large mirror – What we love about mirrors is that they help give the illusion of more space and that mirrors are also helpful when you’re trying to brighten a room. The simple act of hanging a mirror in a hallway or a room can help in drawing the eye away from dull walls and tired furniture. Mirrors with quirky, fun or bold frames inject a lot of color and make a bold statement in a way that expensive art does.

Rugs/Carpets – It is so easy to find carpets and rugs online shopping these days that it makes no sense to not have them in your home. Carpets are incredibly comfortable and also have the power to bring all the elements of a room together by acting as a final flourish of sorts. With smartly placed carpets and rugs you can make an otherwise hostile room seem welcoming and even hide dastardly floorings. You can choose from carpets and rugs online India and if you’re feeling adventurous, hang carpets on walls instead of laying them across the floor.

Photo Frames – Aside from helping you reminisce about home or friends, photo frames are the easiest way of making a strange space your own. Peppering walls with familiar, happy spaces can’t help but elevate rooms into positive and bright living spaces and making it finally feel like home. You can buy photo frames online at unbelievable prices and patterns.

Paint furniture – One of the key rules of being a renter is that you absolutely cannot toy with the existing structure of the house. This sadly includes a ban on drilling holes in the walls and painting said walls. More often than not, people continue to live in the drab and dull homes because there seems to be no way to bring color into rooms apart from adding accessories. However, a very simple yet effective alternative to painting walls is to paint pieces of furniture instead. Dressers, drawer sets and book shelves that you have brought with you can be painted in colors of your choice without interfering with the rules you have to follow.

Mix n match – Almost every Home Décor furnishing magazine or blog encourages you to stick to themes when it comes to furnishing your home. However, when you’re living in a rented space following that advice becomes next to impossible. When you are in a situation where you have to work in and around what already exists, we suggest that you go all out and ‘mix and match’ your way to furnishing perfection. Be it throw pillows, bean bags, shelves or accessories – let there be no restriction to what you choose to add to your living space. Mixing and matching helps bring a quirky and rebellious vibe while making sure that you’re utilizing every piece to its most.

Graduate from Your Bachelor Pad to a ‘Grown Man’ House: We’ll Tell You How!

c709e-jodhaa-logoYou’ve moved away from home a few years ago and now live in the perfect bachelor pad complete with posters of your favorite sportsmen on the walls and dirty laundry everywhere. While we aren’t insinuating that all bachelor pads are unclean and have no aesthetic, we know that upgrading to a house that looks like a grown man lives there won’t hurt. We’re sorry to be the breakers of bad news, but one of the reasons that your chances with the ladies is getting hurt could be the ‘bachelor’ vibe your apartment gives off. Sad, isn’t it?

We bring to you some of the easiest ways by which you can upgrade your bachelor pad and make it look like a proper home.

Walls – We agree that you may never have given walls a second thought before. But when it comes to home décor furnishings and your home, walls are important. Bare walls are one of the hallmarks of bachelor pads and that’s alright. But when you’re looking at taking it to the next level and giving your home an ‘adult’ makeover, you have to focus on dressing up your walls. While you could go ahead and invest in a paint job, it is a process that takes up time and money. We suggest that you go to your nearest Designer Home Furnishing Store and stock up on a few frames. Frames are no-nonsense accessories that can breathe life into walls. However, if you’re not a fan of art or don’t like hanging pictures on walls, try wall hangings.

Windows – Bare windows may have seemed like the most normal thing in the Universe to you, but sadly, houses where well-functioning adults live have more than just the window panes to boast of. Curtains are very important to have in all your rooms not just because they look pretty, but because they give you the option of controlling how bright your room will be. If you don’t already have curtains on at least the windows of your bedroom, suggest that you buy curtains online shopping and help add another dimension to your bedroom.

Flooring – No, we won’t ask you to redo the entire flooring of your house. However, when you have bare floors all throughout your house, it ends up looking sparse – and not the nice kind. Having something to ‘dress’ your floors is a great idea and gives an added element of color, texture and depth to your house. You’ll easily find carpet and rugs online shopping and you can opt for these to help add some personality to your house.

Furniture – Bachelor pads often have furniture that is mismatched, second-hand and not very comfortable. While having guests over for sophisticated dinner parties or gathering may not have been a priority in your hey-days as a bachelor, as you grown up and find a more matured set of friends, this becomes a huge part of your social interactions. We advise you to make the leap and opt for furniture that is sturdy, comfortable and most importantly matches the overall tone and style of your house. You can choose from millions of styles and sizes of furniture from home décor online shopping sites or even home furnishing stores near you.

Bed Sheets – Contrary to popular belief, bed sheets are not something that is optional but very essential to make sure that your bed looks and remains clean and comfortable. You may have survived with only two bed sheets and pillow cover sets when you were in the ‘bachelor pad’ phase, but you now need to buck up and stock up on some good quality designer bed sheets. We suggest that you invest in anything from four to ten different bed sheets that are complimentary to the rest of the room. Change your bed sheets every two weeks and within no time you’ll see just how luxurious sleeping can be.

Accessories – Probably the most underrated yet the most convenient way to seem like you have it together is to include accessories in your house. In terms of home décor, accessories include all the artifacts, fixtures and other knick knacks that make your house look better and add a little more personality to your house. Be it printed cushions, bed-side lamps, wall hangings or show pieces, anything that shows off a little bit of your style gets a big thumbs up! We are also positively digging the trend of bolsters and these are a sure fire way to add a bit of personality to your room.

While having a house that reflects on your maturity, sophistication and personality is a great thing, we understand that the shift from a bachelor pad to a more refined home is not one that happens over night. We suggest that you start changing the small things first and then eventually tackle bigger projects like painting walls or retiling.

Ingenious Hacks For Small Bedrooms

c709e-jodhaa-logo

Love it or hate it, small bedrooms are an unavoidable aspect of real estate. Maybe you’re living with roommates and have landed the small bedroom or you simply live in a house where the bedroom is smaller and quainter than most. No matter the reason, a small bedroom has always been seen as cramped, uncomfortable and cluttered by most of the Home Décor Furnishings world. However, we’re here to tell you that it is possible to have a small bedroom that’s cozy, comfortable and uses space effectively. For the room where you start and end your day, we’ve compiled a list of hacks to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your bedroom, no matter the size.

The Bed Area : The bed is essentially the epicenter of your bedroom and is bound to take up a lot of space. While this may not really be such a big deal in case of bedrooms with space to spare, small bedrooms need beds that can do more. The area around your bed should be tidy and neat, but who said that you can’t make your bed work hard?

Storage – Rather than buying a bed that’s essentially just a hunk of wood, metal and mattress, opt for one that has storage space underneath it. This is a very common and underrated hack. By converting the area under the bed as a storage space, you’ve effectively cut down the need for at the very least a set of drawers and instead stashed your stuff in a place where nobody even knows it’s there.

Nightstand – The most important question to ask yourself is if you really need more than one nightstand or if you really need a nightstand at all. As radical as that may sound, you can still have a place to keep your stuff at arm’s length without having a nightstand. One fabulous way of doing so, is to take advantage of headboard space and add collapsible shelves or sections to it.

The Bed – The epicenter of the ‘bedroom’, your bed need not cut down on style if it has to bulk up on sensibility. You can always jazz it up with a funky Doubles cotton printed quilt or even nice designer bedsheets which you can easily find at Designer Home furnishing stores across the country.

The Walls: The walls in your bedroom can make or break the overall appearance of your bedroom by making it look like a mess and mish-mash of too many things going on at once, or making it look like a cozy wonderland where you’d definitely stock up on beauty-sleep. The rule you should be keeping in mind is that whatever you put on your walls should look good and serve a purpose too. Brownie points if he purpose fulfilled is a storage solution.

Wardrobe – If you have a wardrobe that is bulky and heavy, chances are that it will take up too much space and make your bedroom look smaller than it already is. Go for sleeker and flatter wardrobes that don’t take up too much space and are well-optimized on the inside with hooks, drawers and shelves for all your storage needs. If there is a chance that you can have the wardrobe partially pushed into the wall, there is nothing like it!

Accessories – Walls that are bare just make the bedroom look like it lacks personality. However, put too much stuff on the walls and it’ll look like all the Online Home furnishing Stores in India collectively threw up on your bedroom walls. Flatter and smaller pieces like photo frames, pictures, wind chimes near your windows and designer mirrors are all good to go. If you’re feeling adventurous, pick from the many carpets and rugs online India and rather than using it on the floor (where it will take up space), use it as a wall hanging!

Finishing Touches: Little details from the colors of your wall, wall shelves, and light fixtures and so on can really make a huge impact on what the final assessment of your small bedroom is.

Vanity – Most people, especially women prefer having a vanity table or area in their bedroom itself. Well, even if you do have a small bedroom, it is possible to have a decently stacked vanity if you pick a really tiny table with a hollowed out space for an ottoman on mini-sitting stool. If there is a mirror attached, there can be nothing better. For organizing your vanity, use pen-stands, jewelry holders, boxes and small bins.

A small bedroom does not have to mean a death sentence to your Home décor Furnishing dream. Be smart, simple and sorted in what you choose to bring to your bedroom and you won’t feel like you’re compromising – because you won’t be! We’d like to sign off by saying that when you have a small space to work with, always keep things tidy and let there be spaces between furniture or accessories.

Draw inspiration from friends’ homes, gather opinions and trawl home-designing websites and magazines to get a better feel of what you’d like best. Let your imagination flow freely, and don’t ever be afraid to experiment!
