We picture monsoons as a season that evokes romantic imagery, verdant greenery and blossoming, bright hues. However in the city that’s Unfortunately far from true. We are confronted daily by sleeting sheets of grey, ankle-deep rivers of muck and a dreary, cold uneasiness. So how do you wade through this bleak downpour and keep your mood uplifted at home?
Here are 7 monsoon décor ideas that brighten up your living space and truly embrace the rains!
1: Keep The Mud Out
With door mats, of course! Set up a quirky welcome for your guests while ensuring no dirt trails through the door and inside your home. Place a jute, coir or rubber mat emblazoned with funky writings or vibrant prints at the entrance.
2: A Stand For Umbrellas
Keep a stately vase or wicker basket for your and your guests’ umbrellas in the foyer area. A sleek stand with colourful umbrellas works as both a decorative and utilitarian element in your doorway.
3: Bring In Spring
What spells monsoon better than flowers? Adorn your tablescapes with elegant vases full of fragrant blooms. You can place copper urlis with floating jasmine and hibiscus flowers as well. At the entrance, upcycle your bright wellington boots as a DIY flower vase and top it with fresh blossoms to bring in some funky colours!
4: Scented Candles
Aromatic candles are a great way to fight musty, mouldy smells and infuse fresh, energizing fragrances at home. Arrange different candles on a tray with decorative accessories, and set them alight to create a warm, glowing, romantic mood.
5: Tune In To the Wind
Make the most of the monsoon breeze by hanging up charming wind chimes by the window and in the balcony. Enjoy steaming chai and snacks while blissfully listening to the enchanting melodies of the raindrops and wind.
6: Sheer Window Drapes
Heavy curtains block out the light, absorb moisture and leave a drab, musty smell in the room. Switch to light-weight, diaphanous fabrics that can filter in the sparse light to help brighten up any space.
7: Change The Covers
Simply spruce up your tablecloth, cushion covers and bedding to instil a sunny disposition indoors! Opt for a peppy palette of tangerine, citrus, coral and turquoise to banish away the gloom.
