Happy New Year all, and welcome 2018! Today, we have the top 5 posts of 2017. Posts that you guys really loved, shared, read and re-read!
Stepping into the new year is always accompanied by a sense of excitement and anticipation. Even though it’s a day like any other, on New Years I always feel more energetic and enthusiastic, like there’s some magic in the air. I also automatically look back at the year gone by and think about the good and bad times. And what I love doing most is thinking about what went right and how I can do that even better in the coming year. Which brings us to this post.
Top 5 Posts Of 2017:
The first thing you will notice when you see this list, is that 4 of the 5 posts are about festival decor. And that defines us pretty well, doesn’t it? We love are celebrations, festivities, meeting friends, eating lots of good food and dressing up ourselves and our homes. We’re generally a happy and social bunch of people. So let’s relive our festivities from last year and celebrate with our top 5 posts of 2017.
We start our list with, you guessed it, a festival!
I had great fun writing this post. And I had great fun decorating for Diwali this year. Usually it’s just for ourselves, family and friends. This time I knew I’d be sharing it with all of you too, so I had that much more fun doing up the whole place.
And I guess you all could feel that in the post. I published this just 2 days before Diwali, and it shot up the charts right there and then, to reach number 5.
In case you missed it then, you can read the post here.
Amongst all the festival post, this non-festival post is flying high, and I can see why. We have a great collection of really simple ideas to do up your walls. I believe decor is not about getting the most expensive and exotic stuff and displaying it. It’s about taking the stuff that you have and making the most of it. This post just does that.
So whether it’s putting your plants up on a blank wall, or draping it with fairy lights, you’ll find loads of innovative ideas here for using normal, everyday items differently.

Half way up on our top 5 posts of 2017 we have this post on marigold flower decoration. I wrote it after attending a family wedding. The decoration for all the functions there was done in marigold. It is such a bright, happy flower and I wondered why we use it only on occasions and festivals. If friends were coming over for dinner and I wanted some flowers in my living room, I would never think of using marigold.
And that’s what I like best about this post. Not only does it have the usual, traditional ways of decorating with marigold, but also some unusual ideas which you can use for all occasions.
If you ever feel like decorating with marigold, check out the post here.
That brings us to the top 2 of your fave five of the year, and we’re now fully into festivities. I found so many pretty ideas while researching this post, that this one actually inspired me to get my Christmas decorations going! From using simple twinkle lights…
… to using plain white paper to cut snowflakes, we have lots of good Christmas-y ideas in this one.
You’ll have great fun seeing the pretty pics, so if you didn’t read it the first time round, check it out here.
Which gets us to our most pinned, most shared and most read by far, of the top 5 posts of 2017. Our post on Diwali decoration ideas.
With so many beautiful photos and easy and completely doable decorating ideas for Diwali, it’s easy to see why it tops the chart this year.
I went back and read this post myself when I was planning the Diwali decorations in my own home. It’s probably why that post made it to number 5! 😉 You can save this one and refer to it when you want to make your home pretty for any special occasion. You can find the post here.
That wraps up our top 5 posts of 2017 for you. I’ve really enjoyed myself bringing these to you. Researching and reading up for all these posts keeps me updated too and I have learnt so much along the way.
When I started blogging, I thought it would just be a tool to get people to know me as an interior designer. Now I realise it’s so much more than that. I read and learn so much while blogging that I think it makes me a better designer too.
Looking forward to loads more blogging and designing in this year!
Until next time,
