Monsoons have arrived. In these gloomy and quarantine times, it is important to add a little bit of sunshine to your home.
A few tips and your home can be brighter and lively than ever before –
1. Blooming flowers
To bring beauty right inside your home, fill all your empty vases and wine bottles with beautiful lilies, tulips and roses. You can also keep jasmines and hibiscus from your backyard and let them float in some water. Flowers bring freshness at home and the aromatic scent of these blooms will definitely cheer you up!
This monsoon adds color to your rooms. Bring in the bright hues you always wanted to try on your walls. Try new colors for your bed sheet, pillows, and woolen bean bags and a nice warm abstract floor mat. After all, colors impact how we feel too.
Give your umbrella a room of its own, though not literally! Since you will be using an umbrella frequently this monsoon, it is important to keep a sleek vase or basket at your front door, so your friends and family don’t leave a water trail when they enter your home. Also, keep a few colorful umbrellas in the stand for a fun decor accent.
4. Scented candles
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 moldy smells of the rain. This adds to the romance in the air.
Last but not the least; keep dirt trappers on your main door. It will help you to keep your home clean. Always go for doormats made from jute, coir or recycled rubber with funky letters or prints to introduce a dash of quirkiness to your entryway.
