A house becomes a home when the people that live in it truly add their own personal touches and accents to the place. Each home should have uniqueness from the rest of the houses and flats in the locality. Home decor therefore isn’t just about the fancy things, imported artifacts and expensive souvenirs. It is about a statement of personalization and uniqueness that can only be brought to your space by you, when artifacts are placed right and accessorized with the right things, every space in your home could tell a story.
Here are some things that will make all the difference to the decor of your home:
Wall murals:: Contrary to popular belief wall murals needn’t be massive or expensive. A bit of innovation combined with a great imagination is all you truly need. A wall mural needs to have a theme to it, so look for inspiration. Secondly decide a medium for the artwork. Mixed medium like paint, glass and ceramic, works extremely well. Wall murals are an excellent way of making a statement, and can also involve your favourite street art styles like graffiti or traditional designs like cave paintings.
Throw pillows: Throw pillows are a perfect boho chic element to add to the decor of a room. They are perfect accessories for your sofas & chairs.

Patchwork, needlework and even old prints sewn together make an interesting decor enhancement to your home's furniture.
Patterned ceiling fans: India is one of the largest markets for ceiling fans.
