Embrace Spring with Persian Nowruz and Haft Seen Inspired Home Decor

With the rejuvenation of spring, I find myself drawn to the rich traditions of Persian Nowruz, where the Haft Seen spread becomes a focal point of celebration. In this post, I share how the symbolism and beauty of this ancient festival can inspire your home decor. From the vibrant colors to the meaningful elements, each suggestion is a nod to new beginnings and the joy of nature’s renewal.

Join me in weaving the spirit of Nowruz into the very fabric of your living space, creating an ambiance that celebrates life and the promise of brighter days.
