Diwali, the festival of lights and joy, is a significant festival in India and brings families and friends together. The happy and cheerful atmosphere is reflected by the preparations all around. A customary ritual followed for ages is cleaning homes and applying bright wall paints. The main focus of the ritual is to welcome Goddess Lakshmi, who is believed to enter only clean and well-lit homes and blesses the families with wealth and prosperity. If you are looking for ways to transform your home into a luxurious and gorgeous one, you are at the right place. This article will divulge some expert tips to help you get the perfect wall colour shades along with spot-on complementing home decor.

Use Festive Paint Shades

Your wall paint and home decor reflect your personality and style, making it all the more important to choose the perfect paint shades and quality wall paint. Festivities are all about radiating warmth and happiness, which is why warm festive tones are the perfect paint shade choice. You can choose tones like warm red, orange, magenta, or purple. Refer to Indigo Paints’ Wall Colour Shades for a wider variety that you can choose from.

Use Accent Walls for Contrast

If you are not looking for a monochromatic look, you can use contrasting colours for a dramatic effect. For the perfect Hall Colour Combination, paint three out of four walls with neutral shades and paint the remaining one with a bright shade of red, orange, brown, green, or blue. You can also refer to Readymade Wall Paint Combinations here.

Create Your Own Hall Colour Combination

Just like we discussed before, your wall paint colour depicts your style and personality. So, why not create a colour combination for hall walls by yourself after visualising it? Indigo Paints displays its extensive available wall colour shades on its website and lets you paint the walls of a model living room to imagine it. Thus, you can eliminate all doubts by testing out different paint shades together.

Use Two-Color Combinations for Your Home Walls

Two-colour combinations are trendy and offer a creative look to your house. Indigo Paints has different paint shades that range from royal and festive to calm tones to help you bring your home of dreams to life.

Diwali Decor Ideas

Now that we have discussed ways to get the perfect colour combination for the hall wall, let us discuss some decor ideas to showcase the complete spirit of festivity.

String Light Chandeliers

Chandeliers are expensive, but Diwali cannot be complete without lights. Well, we might have just the solution for you. Wrap a hula hoop in string lights and use a thread to hang it in your living room or balcony. These lights are quick party decor items and add a touch of glam to your house.

Rangoli with Colors and Artificial Flowers

Rangolis are popular Diwali decorations and can be made with both colours and flowers. If you have kids at home, avoiding the use of powdered colours might be the best option. We suggest you use artificial flowers for the decoration to reuse them every year and avoid wastage.

Hang String Lights as Curtains

Do you have a space or a wall that you don’t know what do to with? Well, why not use string lights as a curtain? Not only does it add a festive touch, but it also ties the complete decor together.

Bottle Lights

If you have several empty bottles, you have been saving for the perfect occasion. This tip might come in handy. Put some string lights inside these bottles and close them with a corkscrew for a DIY bottle light. You can hang these from the ceiling or place them on the table for a classy lighting effect.


Diwali is the perfect festival to show your brand new wall paints and ‘wow’ your family with your decor skills. Indigo Paints has a variety of paint shades that you can choose from to find one that complements your decor and fits your aesthetic perfectly. If choosing the perfect hall colour combination seems overwhelming, don’t worry because you can get your dream paint one with the help of an expert team from Indigo Paints.
