Would you decorate your house like a rainbow? Or would you keep it plain and simple. The best things in life are simple my friend. 

Someone can decorate their house how they wish. Not everybody has the same taste in colours and decor, or simplicity, ornaments, wallpaper, shades of colours, furniture. The list goes on. It's individual preference, that's why there's so much choice in Homebase, B and Q, and what not stores.

Im sure the Guru would prefer a clean and pure sangat instead of any flashy colours and lights. 

You've written two different things here, "clean and pure sangat" does not relate to colours or lights. How do you know what Guruji prefers in regards to which colours? That's very silly to write that.

Are you also complaining about the rumaals on Guruji, because of their colours and embroidered work? There's nothing wrong with them. 

Also to add, the only thing that needs changing in the picture is to take away the decorations and have less flower arrangements if they are not fresh. It's a simple procedure that can be easily changed. Everything else seems fine, until the sangat want to change the carpet and work together with the committee to use the sangat's funds to do that. It's all about communicating and compromising together. But the carpet isn't visible much, when the chadaran are laid over it.

Why do colours of a Darbar matter, you could design the brightest gurdwara you could think of yet if your soul is still black then it won't have any effect, will it? If you think that colour/decor is distracting, you must have serious problems when it comes to bhagthee. Rule number 1. keep your eyes closed, as 40% of our distractions come through what we see!

err thats my whole point. Gurdwaras dont need to be over bright and colourful it is what is inside that counts. You are just repeating what I said. But yeh to sum up. This was a simple topic.  Yet as always people have complicated it and brought in their own philosophies.

BigTera is right. The darbar of the Guru should look kingly. Full of elegance. Not mismatched colors. Gurudwaras should maybe hire interior designers. 

Its much worse some places. In our gurudwara the walls are not even left white they are painted crazy designs. Some painter guy came from india and hes been doing all the designs for the gurudware, so we have blue patterend walls with gold borders. Our langar hall is  dark burgandy stripes. Its a mess.

I like how the bulandhpuri gurudwara and 3HO are going all white. I think only blue and white should be allowed for the sant sipahi aspects. Also we need to tone it down with the gold.

Someone said a hindu temple looks like a firework of color went off and thats how our gurudware are starttin to become. Looking more like hindu temples esp with all the red n yellow. And those marigold haar everywhere.

We have gurujis saroop at home and we use simple comfortable cotton for the rumalle with a beautiful border  looks much more regal.
