Watch and learn!

Decorating a home can be quite a task.

But Bollywood -- like we've seen before -- always come to the rescue.

Here's some delightful inspiration for you if you want to make your house more beautiful.

And yes, you're welcome!

 

Wake Up Sid

Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma converted an empty and messy one-room-kitchen into a beautiful home. They decorated it with birds and photographs hanging on a clothes line.

The house also lit up door frames with lights, giving the home a beautiful look. And it's not tough at all!

Katti Batti

Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut moved into a shabby new abode but they changed it into something spectacular.

The bedroom wore a fusion look with its contemporary wall on one side and an ethnic trunk on the other. The idea of using a trunk as an accessory in the room is an unusual idea, and extra storage is always welcome!

Have a terrace flat? Take some lessons from PK.

A cozy coffee table, lit-up plants, lamps hanging near the door... it's a perfect set-up for romance.


2 States

Alia Bhatt's home in 2 States was quite traditional with wooden furnishings, an old fashioned swing, an open roof and a beautiful water setting right at the centre.

Good idea to keep in mind!

Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na

Genelia Deshmukh's house was a perfect place to party, thanks to its large spaces and biggish bar!

Prateik's room in the film needs a special mention. It had a brilliant drawing of a man and his shadow on a wall, and looked like someone was actually standing there!

Paa

Vidya Balan's home in Paa was simple and traditional, with a lived-in feel. Yet, even the clutter made the home really pretty. 

The furniture complimented the wooden flooring perfectly. 

Garam Masala

Like Akshay Kumar and John Abraham's home in Garam Masala shows us, bright colours always enhance the look! The orange walls and bright yellow lights compliment each other quite well, and will brighten up your day!

Have a stairway in your home, but limited space? Convert it into a showcase-cum-bookshelf!

Paint your wall green, add some photographs, and voila! your home will look right out of a movie set!

If you're lucky enough to have a garden, add a lot of trees, creepers and peacocks to your backyard, and get yourself an ornate balcony! Wonderful way to spend your evenings, isn't it?

Okay, so we were joking about the peacocks.

Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan's home in R Balki's upcoming film Ki and Ka have a beautiful wall texture, lampshades and a beautiful collection of photographs on the wall.
