Dangling Ornaments on Staircase:

Give your staircase a grand appearance by wrapping garlands and lights around the railings. Stars, baubles, ribbons and other décor accessories look just as amazing hanging from the garland wrapped around the railing as they do when hung on a Christmas tree.

Mix Neutral Hues:

Skip the traditional blend of green and red and embrace the white and gold décor. Sometimes it’s best to steer clear of the traditional hues and drape the tablescape in neutral hues to add a sophisticated touch in your Christmas room décor.

When the space is limited, it becomes particularly challenging to incorporate the desired design elements while still maintaining a functional bathroom. So, if your bathroom is small and you need some decorative ideas for it, then you have come to the right place.

2. Create An Accent Wall: If you want to add a splash of color to your small bathroom, you got to place it on the back wall. This technique will not only give your bathroom depth but also add life to it. If you wish to add some pattern, then use it in the same fashion. However, adding too much color can dilute the effect hence concentrate only on one section and keep the rest of the walls simple and light in color.

Libra: Ruled by Venus, this Air sign is heavily inclined towards all things beautiful. Most Librans are excellent design appreciators. However, in their effort to keep everyone happy, they find it very extremely difficult to say ‘NO’ to anyone, as a result of which, they end up getting stressed.  The personality that strives for a sense of balance and harmony is drawn towards shades of blue, from arctic, teal, sapphire to darker shades like cobalt, azure or navy. When the question of design comes into play, the most closely related theme and form with Libra are the Zen theme and the Oriental lines. Usually this kind of approach implies low seating, cool comfort, neutral lighting and loads of space. And, you are sure to find adorable flowers and high quality Furniture at a Librans humble abode.

Scorpio: Often associated with the element of mysticism, this intense Water sign has a propensity for arcane Furnishing, décor and design.

Home Décor Inspired by Zodiac Signs (Part – 1)

Do you think it is possible that your path in the stars can impact the way your home décor looks? Well, you shouldn’t be surprised when I say, yes it can! I am sure nearly everyone has heard of the zodiac signs- some through the sun-sign astrology columns in the newspapers, others online. However, if there is someone out there reading this blog who needs a simple understanding of what a zodiac sign means, here is our reply. These signs are usually linked to the date of birth of a person and are divided into 12 different signs. Each sign has a different personality trait.

What appeals to the designer within you? Read on to know how your style of décor somewhere reflects your zodiac.



Aries:- Aries can be described as dynamic, temperamental, passionate and a lover of challenges. The element of Fire is associated with the Aries sign. Owing to this, they are naturally inclined towards “red shades, crimson, scarlet, ruby and fire-engine”. We are of the opinion that a bright red interior with a simple and minimalistic style will be seen in their luxurious abode. This best reflects an Ariens charm and charisma. When it comes to Furniture selection, Aries prefer to go with modular furniture with plenty of storage space.

Bedroom Sets

Taurus:- Represented by the bull, the sign is drawn toward, “earthy browns, shades of green, pastel colors (blues, pinks, greens), and white.” They are extremely grounded and realistic. Bulls usually prefer to add a touch of warmth and plush to their home by inducing drapes, upholsteries and soft lighting. Interior décor comes naturally to the Bulls.

Bedroom Furniture


Gemini:– Gemini belongs to the group of Air signs. They are known to have a style which is fresh, youthful, and urbane. They are blessed with an active mind and fertile imagination. Latest designs, glass doors, utilitarian furniture and modern art works best reflect their sign. A Geminian’s home is most likely to feature a blend of cheerful, lively and bubbly interiors with a burst of psychedelic colors.



Cancer:- Cancerians love the warmth and coziness of their homes. For someone with this water sign, one can describe them as tenacious, highly imaginative, sympathetic, loyal and persuasive. A Crab’s home is sure to reflect ‘moonlight hues’ such as soft gray, pearl, silvery, milky white, cream.  They truly enjoy basking in soothing whites and calming grays. Antique furniture, old family pictures will find its way in a Crab’s home.

Leo:- Leo, the magnificent lion tends to set extremely high standards for themselves. When it comes to Interior Décor, the fire sign has a soft corner for the colors of the peak of summer. Hues like “red, sunflower yellow, orange and gold” create the ideal palette for this magnetic sun-sign. Their dwellings have to have a larger-than-life feel to it. High quality art pieces, furnishings, accessories, furniture etc. is of prime importance for a Leo.

Bedroom Set

Virgo:- Quite fastidious in their choice and a born perfectionist, Virgos have an excellent sense of space planning, and can manage with ease even the tiniest of the spaces. They are always prepared with admirable storage ideas, and the minute they run out of it- they find some more! This, however, doesn’t mean that their house is full of random pieces of furniture. The hues associated with this earth sign are luckily quite luxuriant, offering lots of room to play in spaces. From plain “white” to “muted natural colors like indigo, soft primary colors (blues, greens, yellows), forest green, beige, wheat field golden,” Virgo has the more natural looks all wrapped up.

5 Tips to a Great Dining Room Decor

Great friends and great food, what else does one need in life? Well maybe one more little thing… a great place to share them in! A dining room interior decor that is both cozy and comfortable in ambience and stylishly unique in decor is the call of the day! MoBEL brings to you 5 tips so that you can take pride in your beautiful dining room décor and create.

Shapes Do Matter!

If you have a long and narrow room, go for a rectangular Dining Table since it would help fill out the space and create the warm ambience that you desire. Round tables on the other hand encourage conversation. However, if you usually require more than six people’s seating, the diameter might become too big for easy conversation flow. A pedestal structure can also work well in this case since it gives more room and leg space and allows for comfortable seating of more people.

Whatever be the shape and size of the table, make sure each person has at least 24 inches of table space to comfortably have his / her meal in. Moreover, a distance of 3 feet should always remain from the table to the wall or the nearest furniture so as to allow people to move in and out of their chairs easily.

The Seat Story Redefined…

While the usual thing to do is to match the Dining Chairs with the table in terms of the look and upholstery, a recent trend is the mix-n-match fad. Throwing in an antique chair with a contemporary set up or pairing a wooden table with wicker or leather chairs are all doing very well in adding that flair and creating a style statement in your dining space. Trying out a long bench on a side instead of chairs are also an in thing that might be a hit with your friends!

The Rug-ged Surface!

In a Living Room where the space largely comprises of hard surfaces, adding any fabric or textile helps to create a softer mood and bring on warmth. A rug can do the trick beautifully for a dining space. Use a stylish rug under the dining table to straight away demarcate the dining area from your living space. It should ideally extend till about 2 feet from the dining table so that the chairs are still on the rug when your guests are seated. Other options to introduce fabric and patterns include upholstered chair covers or colorful cushions on wooden chairs.

And the Light-ning Strikes!

Hang a pendant lamp or even a chandelier over your dining table to create drama in your dining experience! Remember to install a dimmer so that you can create just the right mood when you want! Also, other tips to increase lighting and make your dining space appear larger, specially during the day time is to put a large mirror across the wall against the window.

Finally the Accents!

Lastly, one of the tips to make your dining space a fashion statement that reflects taste, style, and class is to give a finishing touch to your décor by placing carefully chosen accent pieces. This might be a vibrant wall colour as a backdrop to your dining set up, or a neutral wall accented by a dramatic piece of artwork, a beautiful centerpiece on your table or even a family heirloom put up to bring a personal touch to the place.
