The pitter-patter of rain, the scent of rain-soaked earth, and the vibrant green outdoors are all pointing to one inescapable and really exciting thing – Rainy season is here in all its glory! It is that time of the year when all you want to do is to call in sick at work and curl up inside your blanket with a steaming hot cup of chai with some pakodas on the side! Among the numerous other things to expect in this season is the need for a touch of a decor update in our homes. And, in today’s blog, we bring you a few ideas to decorate your home to welcome the rainy season with!
1. Enchanted Greens
Rain brings out the freshness of nature. And, what better way to bring in that freshness into your home than with plants. With so many options for seasonal blooms, plants, succulents, and durable cactus available in the market, each corner of your home can look rich and refined with the plants you choose.
2. Create a Cozy Reading Nook
There are only a few things in life as amazing as curling up with your favorite book on a rainy day. One of them is having a devoted reading spot made for you to curl up in. This rainy season, create an unwinding sanctuary for yourself by carving out some space for your very own reading corner.
To make the perfect library, there are a couple of things you’ll need to make sure you include. First of all, try to pick a corner that gets a considerable amount of natural light. A cozy spot next to the window is the ideal space to set up a reading nook since it gets ample sunlight and will allow you to watch the rain as you turn the pages of your book. To add some style, include a couple of throw pillows, a potted plant, and even a bit of art that you adore. To wrap things up, you’ll need a space where you can tuck in a tiny table to ensure that there’s space to keep your books, or to set down your coffee mug.
3. Colorful Linens
Rainy season calls for bright and vibrant decor. Think of Bohemian accents! Finish your space with hanging Moroccan-themed lamps to add a touch of whimsy to your home. Spruce up your sofa with extra cushions that are soft and comfortable. Change the covers with brighter shades of yellow, orange, red, blue, and green. Pick hues that complement each other and give your home a cheerful mood. Limit the use of pastels, whites, and beiges. Spruce up your home in light textures that are easy to wash and dry. Use synthetic or silk draperies to light up the day as well as to keep the dampness in control. And remember to avoid dark hues and opt for vibrant shades to tackle the gloominess monsoon causes.
4. Accent with Accessories
To set the monsoon mood, think of decor pieces that amp up the laid-back mood of the season, like wind chimes, throws, scented candles, oil diffusers, and the like. The scented candles and room freshener will help you get rid of the foul smell caused due to dampness in the environment.
