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!
1. Ready-made and Customisable Curtains ($12.60 – $21.96)
Besides shielding us from what-feels-like-38-degrees heat, curtains can also give your living space a sense of sophistication and coziness. 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 in the spirit of the festive season!
Up your curtain game this Hari Raya by choosing from an assorted range of ready-made curtains, or you can even choose to customise your own!
2. Cushion Covers ($2.35)
Besides curtains, cushions are also one of the most important home decor pieces that 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.
3. Persian-Style Carpet ($59.16 – $67.86)
Nothing compares to the feeling of a soft, luxurious carpet beneath your feet. By placing a carpet in your home, 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 on to your home aesthetic.
4. 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, or hang up your favourite pictures, 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.
