Diwali is here ... Time for some contemporary lighting ideas

Diwali has turned out to be delightful. This year was quite the turnaround for Diwali with more people than ever celebrating, lighting lights and lighting fireworks. Every sea-face in Mumbai was dotted with gorgeous rockets in the sky with rich colours and a lovely showery after effect.

Here are some funky and contemporary lighting ideas for the festive season.
1) Glass oil lamps with coloured oils of different density mixed together add a chic splash of colour and light to the home.

2) In a real innovation in lighting and candle-making, rocklite candle company makes oil lamps out of real rocks. Oil is poured into holes mde in real rocks and a fiber glass wick is inserted and sealed. No need to fill or change wicks....and yet, what a gorgeous natural look to add to the home.
