IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic Decoration Questions and Answers
Q1. What is the decoration like in your home?
The most embellished parts of my home are the living room and the balcony. The walls of my living room are covered with beautiful wallpapers of my mother’s choice. One of the walls is adorned with multiple photo frames of my family members. There are a few paintings and night lamps on the other walls of my living room. My balcony has a nice swing chair which is perfect for reading a novel.
Q2. What kind of decoration do you prefer?
I have always preferred a simple style of decoration. The idea of having multiple posters on the walls and having different types of lights all at the same time is something that I never fancied. I also like rooms that are less congested and have a spacious feel to them.
Q3. Do Indian people like decorating their homes?
Indian’s love furnishing their homes with the most attractive ornaments. The practice of always adding something new to the living room shelves is common in every Indian household. It is difficult to come across an Indian house that is not adorned with traditional decoratives, accessories and souvenirs from different vacation destinations.
Q4. What’s your favourite colour when decorating your home?
The colour that I prefer the most when it comes to decorating my home is orange. Since orange is a bright colour, it brings about a certain glimmer wherever it is used as a colour scheme. Also, I prefer this colour over other bright colours like red, yellow and green as it puts less stress on the eyes during the daytime.
