As part of our International Women’s Day series, we spoke to some leading women in the interior designing space to get you the best home décor tips. Here’s what they recommend.
Add antique elements into your décor to add a feeling of grandeur – Ritika Dhingra, Head – Design and VM, Urban Ladder
There is something beautiful about incorporating antique elements into your décor that adds a feeling of grandeur to space. By choosing just one or two pieces, you can add a layer of visual interest to space without changing the overall look of your room.
Mirrors are a great option since they will add depth to any space. You could also anchor the room with a vintage armchair or vanity. Those who are new to collecting antiques can start with a decorative vase, study lamps, or wall plates.
Accent furniture is the trend of the season – Arshi Mukri, Interior Design Expert at Pepperfry

- Statement sofas
- Wing chairs
- Quirky coffee tables
Make a statement wall with paintings – Adetee Sawhaney, Principal Designer, Altus Interio
Create a statement wall by hanging miniature paintings, family pictures, or even mirrors. One can add life to an open bookshelf by hanging a large painting.
You can also use a bright floral-patterned fabric on a single piece of furniture. Throw in colourful cushions and throws on a sofa to brighten up a room.

Use vibrant solid colours– Parul Mittal, Director, Greenlam Industries Ltd.
This is the season to be bright and colourful. There are quite a few approaches that you can take when it comes to colours.
You can pair multiple complementary colours, like a beautiful sea green with a violet shade; or you can play around with different hues of the same colours as a bright apricot orange with slightly subtle melon orange.
