How to set up a Guest Bedroom?

Planning home interiors is a task that takes a lot of effort. In addition to the regular bedrooms, there is an upgraded demand for furnishing a guest bedroom.

Guest bedrooms are now a space of equal importance as it becomes an instant touchpoint for your guests to know you better. The lights, spacing, comfort, and effort to maintain the smallest details make them feel special. It’s a great way to get conversations flowing too. 

Know how you can impress guests and express the best hospitality while they’re around with the following easy ideas in mind. 

A welcoming theme

Depending on the overall theme of the home, the guest bedroom looks best when it’s supportive of the same style. However, the colours and furnishings can be tried out in the most exciting ways. 

If you’re looking into casual, easy styles that have neutral-shaded walls and interiors, a bold colour punch to the bed can uplift the room instantly. Imagine a solid printed (or just the plains) bed sheet on a set of neutrally tinted walls. Seems like a beautiful scene, doesn’t it?

Or if you prefer to go all bold in the interiors, then try out lighter shades for the furnishings. This way, there is an equal balance between the colour tones and not too tacky for the room. Quite often, this aesthetic works for the ones who’d like it to be calming and have an undisturbed sleep after a long trip. 

Guest Bedroom essentials

So what are the most important stuff you ought to keep in the guest bedroom? Here is a checklist:

Bath towels – This is for obvious reasons. You don’t want the guests to be worried about asking how they can dry up or freshen themselves. And not to forget – the better the quality, the better the comfort. 

Hand Towels – A mandatory one to have in the washrooms! Keeping a fresh towel with a mild fragrance is not only a healthy welcome but also a warm one. Cotton hand towels are best in this case as it quickly absorbs and is softer than most fabrics. 

Blankets – No matter which season it is, blankets are a must in a guest bedroom. It could be the thin sheets or the quilts, either way, they complete the comfortable bedroom look.

The perfect guest bedroom

Space-saving concepts work best in the guest bedroom. Since they (the guests) would prefer having it all set up within this one room, your chance to put everything in place can turn out to be fun. 

In-built cabinetry or storage behind mirror shelves are some tricks you can manage to bring in more space around the room. For a quick laidback rest, seating can be planned either with the mirror cabinet as a set or with a cushiony seating arrangement next to the window. This way, extra furniture can be easily avoided.

The symmetry of the room is key to designing any room aesthetically. As experts say – “One must always go along the lines of the room”. If it’s straight/ diagonal/ circular, we would be able to plan the designs to go with the symmetry based on this understanding. For example, having stripes can look fitting in a bedroom that projects toward the window in the same linear way. So, make sure you know your room’s symmetry before planning the furnishings!

Here’s an extra tip – Set up the room with indoor plants to make it more lively and cosy. The guests will love it!

Try out these simple yet extremely helpful cues next time you plan the interiors. We’re sure your guests would love it all!

Contemporary Design Ideas for your Home

There are so many old and new themes for homes today that as buyers, one can get confused with too many options to choose from. Here’s a look at contemporary design ideas that can help you plan your home interiors in the smartest way.

Contemporary-themed homes are cost-efficient in the long run and keep up with the current trends in the market. Personalising your spaces would be more functional than just cluttered fashion with this theme. 

Let us help you get clarity on why and how you can apply this theme efficiently in your favourite spaces. 

Modern v/s Contemporary

People tend to believe modern and contemporary themes are one and the same. This is true to an extent. But as you get planning in detail, you realise that both are different forms of approach, with just some overlapping features. 

The modernistic approach is more qualitative in nature. There are stark pointers to tell you that modernity lasts for a lifetime but does not have many chances to revive(as a fresh look) as time passes. It could limit you to changes in the future when you plan a renovation or a quick makeover. 

The contemporary theme is a perfect combination of innovation and glam. The style it possesses is in the now and fresh as a perspective. It allows itself to do small makeovers as years pass by. This allows you the space to be creative with your furnishings and decor quite confidently. While “form follows function” for the modern way, “form, function and style” make up contemporary. 

How to plan a Contemporary theme?

For both modern and contemporary homes, minimalism is central to planning. For the latter, however, simplicity blends in with sophistication, creating an edge to the overall design. This design most often leads us to sustainable options in the market. Right from the materials to fabrics to the colours, subtle natural elements within them are preferred.

Materials like glass and metal are majorly used in architecture for contemporary styles. Large windows and glass designs give a spacious view which can easily be subject to minimal glam. Easily moveable & lightweight furniture play key roles here. Less furniture with space-saving structures catches more attention. 

Fabrics & Patterns

Natural fabrics remain the best choice to keep up with the contemporary quirkiness. There is a flair for elegance with them in place. Cotton, linen and silk are the top fabrics that fall under this. For easy and long-lasting maintenance, cotton and linen are undoubtedly the best of the lot. 

Checks, zig-zags & stripes are popular patterns to start off. There is a twist to the minimal layout with these patterns. These are best used in furnishings like rugs and cushion covers. They can complement the plains and solids in the room rather organically. Neutral shades of greys, blacks, browns, and whites work well for such a setting.

The Final Touch

As we plan different forms used in contemporary themes, there is always room for some final special touches to turn up the spaces. Lighting is one of those. More than a purely functional placement of lights, a contemporary style looks ahead to have some ‘fun’ in function. It might be through vintage lamps or innovative hanging lights or just large windows. 

Another way to add such small improvements to your home is through decluttering spaces. With less furniture, easily storable and changeable fabrics, etc are some tricks you can try in the book. 

So, in short, the contemporary theme is all about spontaneity. It’s not a permanent solution but hey, it is easily adaptable as trends come up and that pretty much works too! 

Style guide for white theme lovers

When you think of a white-themed space, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind?

Will that be boring?

Wouldn’t that be hard to maintain?

It’s impossible to pull it off!

While we don’t deny the possibilities of these doubts, whites are in actual, pretty cool boosters to spruce up your homes. But to master the art of owning a white-themed space is not easy and that’s where you will need a style guide.

Get to know how to choose, blend and improvise your intimate spaces with the whites in place.

(PS: You can still experiment with your personalized style inputs while nailing the white theme fashion)

The right whites

Although termed as ‘white-themed’, there are several shades within them that can have the same impact as the whites. It could be sandy white, tinted white, ivory, almond white, or even cream white. Nope, not here to confuse you more (But I can hear you!)

These tones are basically proposed when you opt for a white theme. They are chosen based on the furniture designs, decor colors, and even the lighting. Quite often, plain whites are neglected due to their doubts about maintenance. But have you thought about this – that your ceilings look their best when white is painted over them? It’s brighter and simpler in style too.

Now imagine the whole house adorned in white? Not so bad now, is it?

The undertones are mainly based on convenience for the other supplements of the house. If you wish for bright rooms with a pinch of natural shades (to not look artificial, that is), sandy white is a good choice to start with. Cream whites are for those who wish for the qualities of a white base but a bit more cut down for a subtler ambiance. 

So, choose your whites by answering three simple questions to yourself:

  • Why do I need a white theme?
  • Should I go all white (with furniture, decors, etc)
  • If the answer to the previous question is a… 
  • No: Which shade of white is more suitable?
  • Yes: Can the house withstand the fashion

If you’re still pondering on ‘Where do I start? How do I know if it’s right? – Worry not and just keep reading!

Choosing color palettes

One of the most crucial phases of going white-themed is deciding on the whole color palette. There is no particular pattern to stick to. But of course, the palette must tell your story and create a hospitable environment indoors.

So, what are we looking for?

To match a white base or backdrop, the most satisfying and guaranteed winner would be with beige and pastel shades. Say your curtains are all pure white cotton sheers, then the cushions and their covers can be in brown beige. If you’d like a little bit of color – pastel pinks can help you out here. Even for white cushions, the color palette works vice versa.

The quality of pastels and beige is that they are simple, classy, and elegant. There is no pressure of an impression with these shades on point.

The neutral shades bring in a darker undertone to the beige textures. A standard set of colors include brown, black, and white. Mixing up among these shades with different accessories around the home will look well-planned and cozy for every curious eye. Some more colors that complement well under this category are colors inspired by nature – like green, orange, yellow, red, and so on. They not only give a bold touch but also a serene ambiance to settle in.

Coming to another standard doubt…

Should I try on a black and white theme?

Well, why not? 

The retro classic palette adds drama to your homes and is kind of a fun motivator for conversations. If not for a bold black and white theme, you can make it interesting with patterns and designs in those colors. Like a plain white cotton rug having a checked black detailing, black prints on white sheers, stripes on bedspreads, and so much more. 

Wait…so does that mean only contrasts are good?

Not at all. If you like to mix the colors up, then going bold, retro, or for a standard beige palette is something you can consider. 

If you would like to hold on to an all-white theme, then you can tune it out a bit with different patterns. Say a white sheer with thin blue checks, white floor cushions with a beige undertone, white table cloths with a neutral runner to complement, or even table cloths with minute detailing on a white base. This way, you get to have the poised look of an all-white backdrop with just the perfect amount of intricacies. 

The home looks glammed up already!

Pick your style

What’s next? 

Choosing your preferred style for the home, of course. Now that you have an idea of a color palette, it’s important to pick your style right. I know what you’re thinking – isn’t that already done with! Well, yes and no. 

The color palette has allowed you to choose a basic coloring of how you’d like to view your homes. Say you wanted the wall in white for better lighting, then the style you pick later gets easier to sort out as you go, letting you cancel out on the extras. Get it?

So, what exactly are you aiming at while decorating this space?

To appear graceful but with a tiny element of surprise in the corners?

How about going modern but still highlighting old traditions?

Neat but rustic in approach?

Fancy but also fun?

The possibilities are endless. And that’s why you gotta make up your mind about the styling. A contemporary makeover works best with contrasting colors. For an ivory setting, grey floor cushions and rugs would look magnificent in the living. Bold colors like a purple cushion cover on a white sofa set, navy blue table runners over a white table cloth, daisy yellow bed sheets with linen white sheers, etc got that extra punch for an eye of admiration. 

Now for a modern but culturally rich setting, whites with a touch of ikat weaving would look just fitting. They refreshingly exude the blend and keep up with the fancy checklist. Be it for table napkins, cushion covers, or curtains. 

Minimalism is something that you can fascinatingly experiment with. Replace the heavy extra furniture with easy, straightforward cotton furnishings. The rugs and floor cushions not only look diverse but feel extremely comfortable for every occasion. That’s something that every one of us seeks while furnishing homes, right? 

For a lighter design approach, minute prints or beige tones can work in your favor.

Textures and Decors

All that is left to think now is visualizing the final picture. Well, almost.

The shades of white in homes, although influential, come alive when certain traits are embedded over them. 

Can you think of a house that is without curtains or bedspreads or cushions? 

They are home essentials and their uniqueness blooms when certain designs are imprinted on them. Or even when a particular color scheme is followed. They blend into your idea of charm, which is rather exciting if you think about it. 

So, how would you choose the right ones, especially with a white theme in place?

Let’s see!

Throws! A cotton fabric that is used for various purposes and still equally offers comfort beyond expectations. They are the most elegant characters that can instantly liven up a space, even for a white backdrop. Plain bold/ beige colors and even printed ones work excellently for this requirement. 

Floor cushions have an underrated existence (pun unintended). Their quality is that they succeed around every stretch. Want cushiony seating, a private corner, an intimate get-together, or a lazy time-out for yourself – floor cushions win you over. No matter what theme exists, they are a necessary element in the house. The size of the cushions is easily noticeable and so for a white theme, beige and pastels go best for a subtle atmosphere; while bold prints establish a quirky punch. 

Rugs are another allrounder. They make bold statements and are a quick solution to add power to the overall theme. Bedspreads, duvet covers, and curtains look neat with a white base. Small neutral prints, stripes, and mellow tints uplift the rooms while still holding to its base color scheme. 

Together, they just sound perfect!

There is a general misconception that whites go with every color scheme and design. Certain features are responsible for livening the essence of whites and that’s how a character is built around them. Identifying them gets easy with a style guide at your service.

A new interior theme for 2022

It’s been a long year for all of us, and we have good reason to rejoice when thinking of interior design trends to look out for in 2022 and onwards. Rather than turning the interiors into a decorative space, interior design trends have been gravitating toward a more cosy and comfortable trajectory. The emphasis is on creating a cosy work environment and a space for other everyday activities.

There have also been many interesting takes on material from the growing demand for more sustainable materials to quiet, comfortable and elegant materials which compliment all aspects of your life with a homely vibe, our 2022 trend guide aims to provide you with a simple rule of thumb to help you craft your curated home for the upcoming year with only the best of materials and style.

Let’s take a look at each of the rooms individually and how to incorporate the theme better:

Transport Yourself to a Tropical Climate

Earlier, living rooms were generally considered places of entertainment. Hence, the whole design of the room followed a highly decorative theme, and much of the furniture here wasn’t for relaxation purposes. However, with the pandemic, most of this space has been repurposed to give it a touch of comfort and homeliness. To incorporate this, start by switching up your curtains and blinds. We generally underestimate the huge role these play in the overall appearance of a space. When investing in a good set of curtains, ensure that they combine both style and functionality.

Sheer curtains would give you the tropical vibe as they’re breathable and provide excellent ventilation while allowing light through into the space. Alternatively, picking out solid patterns would give you a warm and snuggly vibe, like deep in the wintertime.

Apart from that, having your cushions match the theme of your interior is very important as it leaves the space with a uniform aesthetic. Pairing your cushion with a comfortable throw for movie nights or reading sessions can be a great start to a great year. 

Maximalise the Bedroom

This is usually the only area in your home where relaxation and rest are integral; setting up such a space can be challenging. Using neutrals or minimal pattern sheets is key to giving your bedroom that slightly fun twist. However, do keep in mind the importance of having comfortable sheets made of suitable quality materials, which can aid the quality of sleep.

To get you started, Thoppia’s Sunrise cotton bed sheets have a great dual-tone theme that blends well with a light minimalist styled bedroom. If you are looking for a more indie-patterned bed sheet, the woven stripes can add a splash of colour and give you that beach-side feel in your room.

Rustic Vogue spaces of Zen

The bath in each house is a room of zen and the only place in the house where you get to hit your reset with a drawn-out bath. However, we tend to neglect the importance of a good bath and how it could give us the right start in the mornings.

Apart from adding dimmer and cosier lights, consider placing scents and candles for an aromatic olfactory experience when you visit the space. You could also consider replacing your abrasive hand towels and bath towels that are much gentler on the skin (such as cotton-based materials). Following a similar theme to the bedroom in the washroom; depending upon your bath’s interior, choose either a simple block-coloured towel or a striped one for a bit more splash in colour.

You can also try pairing rugs in your rooms to protect your feet from the rigid flooring. Additionally, do consider investing in a comfortable apron for all your culinary endeavours in the upcoming year! Here is a pro-tip for you as you’ve made it to the end of the article: consider investing in indoor plants this year. Bringing in authentic greenery will help freshen up your space and complement your natural woods and warm browns in your space.

This post is not your regular Diwali decoration guide with tips on arranging diyas and colourful lights; it’s more than that.

If you are willing to do a complete makeover for your home and not just organize a few things here and there, continue reading.

Be ready to replace a few of your unused, out-dated stuff with new accessories.

Diwali decorations are not limited to bringing new diyas and lights to cover your floors, walls, and stairs. They do hold a significant place in aesthetically improving your interior decor, but the feeling is real when the entire home looks like you have just moved in.

Don’t misunderstand this post to be a pocket-draining checklist! Trust us, it’s budget-friendly. 

Moreover, the act of replacing old items with new is traditionally considered to be symbolic of tossing away all the accumulated negativity of the past year. Hence, you will be welcoming positivity and new forms of happiness.

Alright! Let’s get started with our guide.

Clean your space

As they say, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” a clean and neat home attracts joy and positive energy in abundance.

Repaint your walls, doors, and bathroom. Rejuvenate kitchen fixtures wherever they are necessary. It is strongly believed that Goddess Lakshmi graces the homes that are clean and tidy.

In addition, from a scientific perspective, a clean surrounding keeps you organized and peaceful and increases your attention span. 

Get rid of unnecessary items

We know it might be challenging to throw away the cushion covers you bought at your mother’s behest with your first salary.

But ask yourself this; Do you need it?

If not, then it is time to remove it and welcome new accessories.

So often, we refuse to throw away extra items from our homes and it ultimately leads to congestion. However, periodical decluttering is essential to maintain the elegance of your home. 

Look INTO the living room

The most exposed part of your home is the living room. It is a space that offers your guests the first impression of your sense of style. Moreover, it is where people spend more time with you than anywhere else in the house.

It goes without saying, but the living room must be decked up according to the importance it holds.

Start with replacing curtains on your windows. We don’t always realize the role curtains play in the way a room looks.

At Thoppia, we provide a vast collection of curtains of various colors, fabrics, lengths, and styles. Linen curtains will be a great choice if you want a highly durable, easily washable, dust-resistant fabric for your curtains.

Give a makeover to your bedroom

The bedroom is a place of comfort for you, your family, or your overnight guests. So to give it a good makeover by replacing the old bedsheet with something new. After all, we all know how comfortable a clean and fresh bed sheet feels. The same goes for floor rugs, lampshades, and cushions.

Don’t forget the kitchen

The kitchen is probably that corner of your house which often gets dirty because of edibles and their stickiness. If this is the case with your kitchen, too, then it is time to get new equipment and kitchen towels to clean them since you cannot use dirty towels, can you?

Similarly, the food you cook lands on the dining table, which is the most vital part of your dining space. You wouldn’t want it to look shabby.

  3. Tablemats 
  4. Table cloths

Light up the “ins and outs” of your house

The most important element of Diwali is the light. Every Diwali, whole India lights up from dingy streets to the metropolitan.

That said, lamps and diyas are the most traditional forms of decoration for lighting. Along with lighting diyas in your house, you can also place beautifully decorated lamps in your living room to impart an entirely different scene in your space.

At Thoppia, we provide lampshades that help you diffuse lighting effectively across your room and are available in multiple shapes and sizes. In addition, you can choose a lampshade that complements the base of your lamp.

5 Solid Tips From Expert Designers That Will Help You Ace the Modern Bedroom Look

The bedroom is a cozy escape where we all wish to snuggle in at the end of a tiring day. It’s our personal space where we want to unwind our thoughts and slip into a state of tranquility and composure. 

But just like other rooms of the house, the bedroom should reflect your style- if not in colors, then definitely in terms of its feel. It’s a way of letting yourself enjoy and love your own space. 

Adding a touch of modernity is one of the best ways to recreate your bedroom. Modern bedrooms have sleek interiors that add personality to the room with opulent bedding and a pleasing pop of colors. With the right choices and combinations, your bedroom can become your ultimate source of peace, comfort, joy, and motivation. 

Can’t think of any good ideas for a bedroom makeover? Here are some tips to upgrade your bedroom to a modern and contemporary living space.

5 Simple Ideas to Style Your Bedroom With Modernity

Planning the room with your bed being the fulcrum is a logical way to get things started.

The main attraction of modern bedding is the incredible softness imparted by the plush material. Breathable and lightweight bedsheets complemented by duvet covers best serve the purpose. The bedding being enriched with elegant and straightforward designs just adds to the style quotient.

Pillows, too, are essential soft décor elements that enhance the overall aesthetics of the luxury bedding, besides giving comfort. With the modern lifestyle marked by a hectic urban schedule, having stylish and comfortable bedding ensures a sweet retreat from reality every night. So just put your hair down and get nestled in the soft and comfy bed sheets, duvets, and pile of pillows.

Play With the Curtains

You’ll be surprised to know how curtains play a significant role in modern bedroom styling. Curtains help in bringing the room together, enhance privacy and nurture a peaceful vibe. There are all sorts of options, from thick and opaque curtains to light and translucent ones. The former is best suited for creating a cozy private space with minimal lighting. The latter allows sunlight to peep in so that natural lighting accentuates the beauty and ambiance of the bedroom.

Cotton curtains fit almost all kinds of requirements of modern interior designing. The wide range of cotton curtains from Thoppia will cover all the detailing needed to uplift your bedroom designs.

Don’t Leave the Walls Alone

While we have focused enough on the elements that we can directly add to the bedroom décor, let us not undermine the importance of the walls. We all have our preferences when it comes to walls and colors. From dark and bold colors to light and pastel shades, the bedroom walls can be painted in any color that matches your style and preference.

Besides being aligned with your sense of aesthetics, ensuring that the color and designs of the walls blend well with interior features such as any antiques that you wish to place in the room will have a comprehensive impact in creating a wholesome vibe.

Pastel and light-textured colors help in the refined detailing of bedroom walls. They add a soothing touch to the bedroom walls and help build a sophisticated ensemble of interior designs. In addition, having decor items put up on the walls, such as a big wall clock, a modern art frame, or a mix of big and small mirrors, adds life to the bedroom walls.

Compliment the Bedroom Space With Minimalist Furniture

Furniture items remain unacknowledged quite often, yet they manage to make a decisive contribution as modern bedroom design elements. Clean and unadorned pieces of furniture are now getting a lot of attention, serving as the symbols of modernity and urban lifestyle. Not only do they cater to one’s work-related needs, but they also act as minimalistic embellishments for the bedroom.

Modernity sometimes also means embracing simplicity. For example, having open and straightforward furniture designed with minimal lines gives ample space and makes the bedroom a little airier. This also keeps the bedroom clutter-free, allowing less dust to accumulate and not letting the room get stuffy.

Alternatively, bold and beautiful furniture like a lush velvet sofa-cum-bed or a pair of lounge chairs can also be good décor items for the bedroom. So whatever be your taste or preference- soulful minimalistic furniture or vibrant and charming items, choose what you feel would add visual weight and warmth to the whole bedroom.

Refine the Space with Rugs and Carpets

Before someone plunges into the bed or just before entering the room, a beautiful and appealing rug on the floor is bound to catch the eye. Hence, choosing suitable rugs or carpets is crucial to experience the ultimate combination of aesthetics, comfort, and warmth.

A solid colorful soft mat will let your feet soothe and relax. Once the nerves of the feet are settled, it brings peace to the body and helps you unwind after a long day at work.

Choosing a rug or a carpet that fulfills the dual function of utility and aesthetics is essential. Therefore, you can try wool or silk options. Each material gives a different look and feel. For example, wool would feel warm and soft, while silk gives a regal aura to the room with fine quality and unparalleled smoothness.

Broad striped handwoven cotton rugs that are soft, plushy, and beautiful have also become a trendy new inclusion in the list of bedroom décor ideas. In addition, they are available in a variety of shades, which creates a remarkably charming presence.

Can’t Wait to Start, Right?

Hence, you can recreate your bedroom and ace the modern like a pro with the above ideas. Adding modish soft décor elements will undoubtedly raise the bar and make your bedroom stand out as an oasis of high-toned culture.

The bedroom is the nucleus of the family, and with all modern and voguish components being there, let your bedroom represent the progressive sense of style you possess. Bedroom designs marked by features of modernity and having a solid connection with your personality will allow you to love and take pride in your own space.

3 Ways How You Can Make Corners To Relax at Home

Sometimes, our lives get so fast-paced, that we begin to find them chaotic. We are constantly doing, being, thinking, or on the go. However, it is important to have some responsibility-free time in our day, when we can rest and relax for a few minutes. Or just breathe.

And having that time is a lot easier and better in those nooks and corners of your home, where you can just sit, chill, engage in a peaceful or self-care activity, or take a comfortable nap. If your home doesn’t even have one such nook, here are some easy ways you can create such spaces in your home – any kind of home! Scroll.

By the window

A corner to read

If you want a cozy spot by a window, and are up for some sunlight gracing you, so be it. It would be great if there is a window seat built. Just make sure it’s a space where you can have some peace, with a soft breeze blowing and a good view outside to behold.

Place your favorite chair in front of the window, and put plenty of oversized pillows on and around it. Make yourself comfortable. You could meditate, read a book, enjoy a bar of dark chocolate, or just sit gazing out. Relax for as long as you want to.

A corner to read

a-corner-to-read

What if you need some space to curl up with a book, or a magazine? That too can be achieved, making it a relaxing nook. Pick an empty corner in your bedroom, or any new spot you want to claim as your own. Place a lounge chair, a plush pillow with a pretty cotton pillow cover over it, and drape a luxurious cotton throw over its arms.

Keep a lamp close-by. You may have some things at home, that make you feel happy and soothed, right? Bring those elements into this space, and use it to spend some quality time on your own – reading and relaxing.

With the people you love

Sometimes, you may love to take a break from your busy life, by spending time relaxing with others. Maybe through a board game with friends, a movie night with family, or a casual dinner with someone special. And you need a cozy space for the same, perhaps?

Pick a spot you like – it could even be a slightly large, clean area under a staircase – and stuff it with colorfully striped floor cushions. Keep a small round table or an ottoman in arms reach, on which you can keep snacks, or glasses of wine. And ensure that each of you have a soft and smooth throw blanket, for an even more comfortable and luxurious feeling. If you want to make the aura more interesting, light candles! Scented or not, is your choice. With such a snug setting and the people you like, you can take your time to unwind.

Floor Cushions for Home

Some relaxing is good – regardless of how young or old you are, how demanding your career is, how many chores you have to do at home, what your gender is, how many things are on your to-do list, and what somebody else thinks. Choose the right spots, put together comfy and cozy things and furnishings, create relaxing spaces in your home for those moments of recline, and cozy up!

4 Home décor trends that are now outdated

A single shade of a single color

You have seen plenty of “all white” or “all beige” or “all grey” rooms. Now, this trend is fading. So get your home a rich blend of colors and materials, in various hues. Perhaps get a sheer cotton curtain in a color like Sunflower Yellow for your living room, or a Blue duvet cover for your bedroom.

Bedroom Decor Ideas

Okay, maybe you really love this passed trend, and you don’t want to play around with other colors. Fine then, we suggest you go for various shades of the same color. Every color has many shades, even white. You can also try incorporating chic stripes and patterns keeping the color the same. Like using White linen curtains in one room and having fine striped linen curtains in Grey and White in another room.

Repetitive Accessories

Interior Decoration

Using the same designs and pieces all through your home? Nope. You live in a house, not a corporate office. It is important to follow color schemes, if your home has them, but you can play a bit with accessories and the overall décor.

What you can do instead is display items with a character, a personality. Like books, small sculptures, handwoven cotton cushions, intriguing artwork, stitch cloth, framed poetry, etc. Or limited edition pieces if you’d like.

Textiles and furnishings that just softly lay around

We have all bought something for our homes, that just looked pretty and had absolutely no functional benefit. Especially something in textiles and furnishings. Now, it’s time to rethink that buying habit.

You need furnishings and textiles that do more in your home than just softly lying around. Like a cotton throw, or a floor cushion. Functional and versatile pieces that you can use in many ways for various activities in your daily life.

Too much artificiality

The world is changing. People are leaning more towards sustainable, organic, nature-inspired forms, materials and textiles. So it’s high time you avoid, or at least reduce, the usage of synthetic stuff in your home.

Go for cotton table mats and lampshades. Make use of 100% cotton bath towels and rugs. All the more better if you use handmade and handwoven products. Try to go as natural as you can for your home décor and the things you utilize at home.

Now that you know what trends you need to give up or stay away from, and how to replace them, try incorporating these changes in your home to give it a more contemporary look and feel. Decide on what kind of appearance and aura you are aiming for, and start the process. It might take you a while, but it will totally be worth it.

Brighten up your home with Sheer Curtains

Gone are the days of flashy and gaudy furnishings. Today, people prefer light and subtle materials. Fabrics that are minimalistic, elegant and feathery are liked better. And this applies to the window treatment as well. A timeless and beautiful option for the same would be sheer curtains.

Although they’d been quite neglected for some time, sheer curtains have gained their place in home décor. People are finding them advantageous. They impart aesthetic value. And they’re functional. How? Here are ways how they can benefit your home.

Brightening up your room

Who doesn’t love a home filled with natural light in the day? It makes the room airy and bright. If you’re looking for some filtered vitamin D and a room that gives out happy, sunny vibes – sheer curtains are your best bet.

Advantages of using sheer curtains

Their translucence allows natural light to pass through, not entirely, but just enough. They’ll also give you essential UV protection. They can blend well with blinds and blackout curtains too.

Giving you the privacy you need

Most people sadly describe closing their curtains as darkening their room. No, not with sheer curtains. With them, you can still have a bright room, without having to compromise on the privacy you need.

The sheer fabric is thin enough to allow sunlight, and thick enough to disallow the eyes of those on the outside of your room. It blocks the inside view.

Letting you enjoy the outside view

Sure, they block the inside view. But not the outside view. Sheer curtains’ translucency will help you enjoy the view outside while covering your windows.

They can boost the ambience of your room, add an uncanny charm to it, and let you appreciate the scenic landscape on your home’s exterior.

Adding style, effortlessly

Timeless, dreamy, romantic, sensual — sheer curtains help you achieve all these feelings for your room. Their versatility is their true power.

If you’re looking to create a calm and relaxing aura, go for neutral colors like grey, white, cream, beige or soft pink. The breezy sheer curtains will very well complement your bright bed sheets and other bed linen. Or if you are keen on using bright colors, go ahead. You could team them up with brighter colored solid shades curtains too.

Making your room look bigger

This is a loveable reason indeed. If you feel that the ceiling in your room is too low or your room is too compact, pick sheer curtains.

Install them from floor to ceiling, if you want to make the ceiling appear higher. It’s a plus, if the curtains have vertical stripes. Get them customized longer than your window pane, if you want to make your room appear bigger. Sheer is a light and subtle material, so it will also feel clutter-free.

A smart fabric with a simple yet sophisticated style – that’s sheer for you. Sheer curtains that are made of 100% cotton or linen feature natural fibres and have varied choices in color, print and style.

Pick the shade that’ll match or complement the color of the rest of your room. That includes furnishings like sheets, bedding and cushion covers. Set a relaxed vibe, fill your home with energising natural light and style. Get some sheer!

100% Cotton VS Pure Cotton

While picking your favourite shade is a snap, choosing the right fabric to suit your preferences is a bit complicated. Because if you are looking for a ‘pure cotton’ tag, let us tell you one thing. Even that doesn’t authenticate the quality of the cotton that you are using. Yes. The label ‘Pure cotton’, especially in India, doesn’t mean that the fabric is only made of cotton. Rather, it means that the amount of cotton that has been used in the fabric is pure.

If you are looking for cotton garments that are not blended, what you should ideally go for is a 100% cotton tag. This will ensure that your home furnishings are going to be 100% environment-friendly, hypoallergenic, strong and comfortable. Your ‘100% cotton’ fabric is a natural product only consisting of cellulosic fibres. It is biodegradable and can withstand as many hot washes in its lifetime as it needs to.

The ‘real’ pure cotton

Cotton is the most popular fabric used to make home furnishings, and for a good reason. A 100% cotton bed sheet or cushion cover will be durable, soft and easy to care for. This fabric is also going to be breathable –allowing your skin to breathe, and eliminating the possibility of rashes and boils. Good cotton is dust-mite resistant, thus reducing the chance of any skin allergies. Unlike ‘Pure Cotton’ fabric, 100% cotton fabric keeps moisture from building up between your skin and the material.

The International Forum for Cotton Promotion (Livestrong) stated that cotton can take up to one-fifth of its weight in water before getting damp. Blended cotton too can feel roughly the same but is sure to get sweaty during hot summer days.

In Thoppia, we procure contamination-free combed cotton yarn for bed sheets. The process of combing the cotton makes the yarn stronger & softer. It also cleans batches of shorter fibres and impurities resulting in finer and more compact cotton. Our tightly twisted yarn can create a lighter fabric that is ideal for hot weather conditions – when your body needs more cooling & comfort. They are also good at springing back, which means they’ll remain wrinkle-free and excellent to drape for a lifetime. This is the reason why our bedding allows your skin to breathe and doesn’t trap heat under the covers.

Above all, our 100% cotton fabric ensures that your home furnishings have a crisp and fresh look throughout your lifetime – because good cotton is going to be in it for the long haul.
