Home decor ideas that should help you move into the second-biggest city in Maharashtra with ease.
Touted as the start-up hub of Maharashtra, Pune’s development since the turn of the century has been nothing short of exemplary. With jobs opening up in a flurry, people from all around the country have been flocking to the city in large numbers. While the city does its best embrace you with open arms, an empty, unfurnished apartment won’t exactly make you feel at home.
With rent, food, and travel to fret about already, decorating a place might be the last thing on your mind — but if you have Rs. 5K to spare, we have simple five tips that could make your stay in Pune a lot more comfortable.
Upcycle is the New Black!
Just because something’s old, doesn’t mean it’s disposable. For example, if you own an old computer table, it can be easily repurposed into a study desk or a dressing table with minimal effort. Not only does it help fill up the room, but the best bit is that it won’t cost you a single penny!

Street Markets Hold Answers
Grab a local, hone your haggling skills, and take to the many street markets in Pune that might hold the answers to your decor situation. Laxmi Road has everything imaginable, but Camp, MG Road, and its adjoining lanes might surprise you with its decor options too. And of course, Juna Bazaar with its second-hand furniture and electronic options will be well worth the trip.
Renting – Try it, Won’t You?
If you have a fixed lease, renting furniture not only saves you the hassle of moving around with your furniture, but is a rather inexpensive way to set up a comfortable and warm house. Rentomojo actually has some impressive deals for Pune, which include a bed for Rs. 249 a month, a stunning solid wood coffee table with chairs for Rs. 569 a month, and a bedside table for a mere Rs. 69 a month!
Gosh! How do we set up the living room so it looks different? A question that bothers so many of us. The same dining table? More chairs? Different material? As an answer to all these questions, we came up with the Perk Coffee Table which is a coffee table and a dining table and a gaming board and a .. you get the picture. The Perk Coffee Table prime is a perfect change for the living room. Carved out of Sheesham solid wood, with geometrically arranged under space for 4 low seaters with cushions, it increments the look of any place to a new level. ProTip: The chairs are light to move and have a soft fabric. Perfect place for that night with friends revolving around board games. #furnitureRenting #furnituredesign #furniture #homedecor #wardrobe #bed #rentomojo #diy #decor #colors #bedroomdecor #bedroom #motivation #motivational #solid #beautiful #interiors #instadaily #interiordesign #love #movie #fridaynight #screening #bookmyshow #theater #discounts #free #follow #summer #awesome
In DIY, We Trust
If you actually give it an honest go, DIY isn’t half as difficult as it seems. Buy scraps or cheap materials, let your imagine soar, and suddenly you have a prettier home and a great hobby to keep you busy on the weekends.
Cost Cutting, Not Class Cutting
If you simply lose the notion that only an expensive piece of home decor could beautify your home, you’ll be surprised at how much you could do in a seemingly paltry sum of Rs. 5000.
Stuff like fairy lights in a mason jar, a simple photo frame, or perhaps even installing pretty mirrors could magically transform your house into a more comfortable, snug space.
A bit of a last minute jump into #SockSunday but I just got home and am so ready to veg. The lighting right now is perfectly soft, and just bright enough still to snap a quick photo. This weekend has been a mix of partying and relaxing and it was amazing, but I’m ready for my episode of Outlander ??. . 400 pages into The Crow Girl and still just as hooked! It’s slowed down a bit but the pace is working for the development of the characters, and I’m still very interested. I’m hoping to plow through the rest this week and get on to my next very anticipated read! . . Hope everyone had a great weekend ☀️. .
