Monsoon is the time when you spend most off your time inside the house so keep it warm and dry during the monsoon. Here are some tips to make some necessary changes in the monsoon.
With grey skies overhead, there's no doubt your home is going to start reflecting the gloomy outdoors. Enliven your home with pop colored cushions. Swap your greys, blues and dark hues for bright shades of tangerine, citrus, turquoise and pinks. Changing your cushion covers is the easiest way to keep your decor fresh and preppy.
Sheer window dressing
Get rid of your heavy draperies and invest in sheer fabrics. Velvets, jacquards and even cotton tend to soak up moisture and keep your home musty. Sheer or lace curtains allow even thin sunlight to stream in, keeping your space bright and airy.
Place scented candles along with accent pieces on a stylish tray. Light them up to add warmth and romance to your home and also to fight the musty and mouldy smells of the rain.
Leave an all-weather proof doormat at your front door so guests can wipe their boots, thus ensuring your floors don't suffer. Opt for doormats made from jute, coir or recycled rubber with funky letters or prints to introduce a dash of quirkiness to your entryway. Remember, your doormat is your first line of defence to keep muck at bay.
