Create a  Beautiful Wall Gallery

An empty wall is like a blank canvas. They’re an opportunity to show off your style, your family story or your passions in a great way. Hence leaving them blank and boring- especially at the festival time, will make your home look incomplete and drab. To turn those stark walls of your home into something attractive that’ll brighten up your space for this Raya, why not create a wall gallery of your best moments?
 
Creating a wall gallery is one of the ways to complete an interior by adding style or character to your home. The best things about them are their versatility. By using a couple of simple, cohesive framed prints or several of them. You can creatively make a strong statement and create a focal point of any room – drawing the eyes of the viewers to that particular space. Also, they can be a completing element that could help you to pull any room together and make it feel complete by adding colours to your space.
 
From your family portraits to Raya themed or Islamic patterned art that reflects your heritage. You can turn anything into framed prints, canvas prints or any other wall decor products, and creatively arrange them (depending on your taste and style)-creating a wall gallery. No matter where you want to place them, they’ll surely be a little extra touch that could take your space from just looking practical to Pinterest-worthy interior decor.

 

Add Unique & Stylish Throw Pillows

Generally, throw pillows might seem like a small part of the interior design process. But they are the most important home decor accessory that you can own. With the right type of throw pillows, you can increase the aesthetic value of any room as well as creating a more comfortable and inviting home.

As this year, many of you couldn’t travel back to celebrate Raya at your home town (balik kampung) due to the ongoing pandemic. Most of you will need to celebrate the festival at your home. To make sure that you’ll feel comfortable and enjoyable celebrating Raya at home without losing the festival vibe. Creating a warm and cosy space is quite important. In this case, adorning the seatings of your home with personalised throw pillows are the best way to go.

Adding throw pillows to the living room seating, hallway benches, or any room of your home is a great way to make you feel relaxed and enjoy celebrating at home. This is because, throw pillows can be amazing back support or comfy item to hold while conversing, enjoying snacks or watching the TV shows. They’ll also be items that can make your guests feel comfortable being at your place if you do a small gathering with your friends or family at home.

Besides, throw pillows is also an easy way to upgrade your home –whether it is just for the season or for longer. They’ll add an extra splash of colours, textures and luxuries to your space on a small budget and elevate your house to a home. At the same time, they can also reflect your personal style to the guests if you opt to dress up the seatings at your home with personalised photo pillows.

Pro Tip: To make the throw pillows give a Raya feel to your home, you can create a personalised pillow with traditional motifs and middle eastern themes or green colour pillows.

Light Up Your Home With Shot Glass Candles

It is a tradition for houses to be lighted with traditional oil lamps and decorative electric lights on Raya. But nowadays, mini or shot glass candles have also become a trend and people’s favourite decor item to make a play of light and rays to their space.

Shot glass candles are creative decor items that’ll bring glow, warmth, and cosiness into the modern interior in a stylish way. No matter where you place them, they’ll infuse soothing ambience and creates a mesmerising effect on your home.

Using shot glass candles that are smaller in size can be easily moved to another place and are easy-to-maintained. You can place them anywhere at your home. For example on a living room table, ledge shelf, edge of the balcony, and more. (depending on the space you want to fill in with something ).

But if you want to add a little bit of your personal touch and show your creativity, using a personalised shot glass to create DIY candles will be a good idea. Creating candles with personalised shot glasses will make them unique pieces that’ll add charm to your space. Whether you decorate them with some extra decor elements such as flower petals, succulents, or simply arrange them as they are. They’ll be minimal items that are sure to add interest to your room and make the festival even more special.
