Decor ideas to brighten your home in mon­soon

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Wel­come mon­soon with some bright changes in your home decor to lift up the mood. Here are some tips shared by ex­perts:

To brighten your liv­ing room, paint the walls in shades of bright red, blue or even yel­low. Avoid up­hol­stery and fur­ni­ture, which at­tracts mois­ture eas­ily. Use a plain colour sofa and ac­ces­sorise it with colour­ful cush­ions.

It is said that your mood re­flects in the food that you make. So it is nec­es­sary to quirk up the kitchen in­te­ri­ors. Use colour­ful, in­no­va­tive de­signs to make mun­dane tasks look more joy­ful. Use cute cut­lery and con­tain­ers along with some fancy din­ing set. Keep the din­ing ta­ble plain or put up a din­ning cloth of a pas­tel colour that will ac­cen­tu­ate your food. You can also use colour­ful tablemats to perk up the din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Get a vi­brant or funky door­mat out­side the house to keep out the mud and slush that this sea­son brings in.

Say no to or­na­men­tal curtains and go for some light ones. Leafy green, aqua, turquoise, scar­let and corn are some good colour schemes. Heavy curtains, when damp, is dif­fi­cult to dry. Thin cot­ton curtains not only dry quickly but also are easy to wash.

We all love the sound of the rain. To soothe your mood fur­ther, add the mu­sic of wind chimes to your home. Dec­o­ra­tive wind chimes are avail­able at most lo­cal mar­kets. You can also add some in­door plants.

A good way to wel­come mon­soon is by dec­o­rat­ing your home with mon­soon­friendly ac­ces­sories that make your home bright and strik­ing. Let your guests en­joy the rains along with a cup of hot tea ac­com­pa­nied by beau­ti­ful coast­ers, beau­ti­ful cup and saucers made of in­trigue de­signs. Also make it fun for your­self this mon­soon by adding fun fur­ni­ture like ham­mock and swing.
