<![CDATA[Hari Raya Puasa is right around the corner, marking the end of Ramadan and a time of celebration for all our Muslim friends! While it is unfortunate that visiting is not allowed this year due to the circuit breaker, don’t let it dampen your Hari Raya celebrations! We believe that you will find comfort and greater meaning in celebrating this festive season with your family. To freshen up your home and get it Raya-ready, we have curated a list of 7 things you should get for your home this Hari Raya!
Bean Bag Sofa ($32.81 – $61.19)
You can never go wrong with a bean bag sofa (or two!) placed in the corner of your living room. The ergonomic design perfectly contours to every inch of your body and supports it well, making you feel comfortable and at ease while resting. The bean bag sofa is especially useful when you have guests over during Hari Raya and run out of space – this cosy, portable sofa will do a great job in making your guests feel at home. On top of that, it acts as a good Hari Raya decor idea for any part of your house, be it the living room, bedroom or playroom!
2. Bedroom Blackout Drape ($8.46 – $8.96)
Besides shielding us from what-feels-like-38-degrees heat, curtains can also give your living space a sense of sophistication and cosiness. You should never underestimate the power of a stylish backdrop, so what better occasion than this festive season to get your home a fresh set of curtains!
If you are unsure on how to pick the perfect set of curtains for your home, a tip from decor enthusiasts is to fix your curtains from ceiling to floor to give the illusion of a larger room. Additionally, it is recommended to choose a colour that complements the existing colours in your room. While neutral colours are usually the safer option, there is no harm in opting for bolder colours to add a playful element to the spirit of the festive season!

3. Cushion Covers ($2.35)
Besides curtains, cushion covers are also one of the most important Hari Raya decor pieces that will make your home feel “complete”. Whether you want to decorate new cushions or give your old ones a makeover, an easy and simple way to do so is through the use of cushion covers. They help to enhance the overall appearance of your home without having to break the bank.
4. Persian-Style Carpet ($59.16 – $67.86)
Nothing compares to the feeling of a soft, luxurious carpet beneath your feet. By adding a carpet as part of your Hari Raya decor, you can easily create a cosy communal living space for eating and hanging out with your family. Be it in your living room, or under the dining table, carpeting is a simple way to add to your home aesthetic.
5. Fairy Lights ($7.90 – $8.90)
Due to its versatility and affordability, fairy lights are commonly incorporated into one’s living space to liven up the atmosphere at home. Whether you want to accent a wall, hang up your favourite pictures or just spice up your Hari Raya decor, fairy lights are definitely your go-to decorative solution. You can choose to outline the doors of your home with strings of fairy lights to give them a whimsical touch. Alternatively, you can also stuff the fairy lights into mason jars to make great decorative pieces for your coffee table. We recommend sticking to one colour – gold or white lights are popular choices to exude simplicity and class. But, there are other fun colours to experiment with and even a rainbow option for those of you who are feeling adventurous.
