Bring in some flowers
Riding the tricolor theme, add flowers in shades of saffron, white and green to your vase. Look for saffron flowers like marigolds and pair them with white-colored flowers and arrange them in a vase. Place the vase on your dining table or coffee table where they are visible from all corners of the room. You can also make a floral rangoli at your entrance.
Accessorize with national symbols
Why stay limited to the tricolor theme when you can play around with accessories depicting the national symbol of India? Incorporating the national emblem Ashoka Pillars, and symbols like peacock, tiger, and banyan tree into your home's decor can enhance the overall look of your home. Showcase your patriotism by installing mini metal sculptures of such national symbols or through abstract wall art.
