7 Easy Decoration Tips to Lighten Your Rainy Days
While the rainy days have been romanticized by poets and authors, we are all battling gray skies, dark rooms and musty smells. Consider these tiny monsoon decor changes when it starts showering to enliven your house. Here are the home makeover tips to brighten your rainy days:
Place Scented Candles
Place scented candles on a stylish tray along with accent pieces. Light them up to bring comfort and excitement to your home as well as battle the rain’s musty and mouldy smells.
Stay Clean with Dirt Trappers
Place an all-weather proof doormat at your front door so visitors can wash their feet, making sure they don’t fall from your floors. Go for doormats made with quirky letters or prints from jute, coir or recycled rubber to add a touch of quirkiness to your entrance. Note, your doormat is the first line of defense you need to hold muck at bay.
Let the Wind Sing
Hang windchimes by the window, and let the chimes soothe your mood, to add a whimsical note to your home. Take your family together to make it a fun project, and look for DIY wind chimes you can make from bits and bobs lying around your home.
Brighten the Room with Light Curtain
Stay rid of your heavy draperies and invest in pure textiles. Velvets, jacquards, and even cotton continue to soak up moisture and create a musty house. Curtains of sheer or lace allow even thin sunlight to flow in, keeping your space bright and airy.
Choose Bright Colors
With grey skies overhead, there’s no doubt that your home will begin to reflect the dim outdoors. Enliven your home with cushions in pop colour. Swap the greys, blacks, and dark hues with vivid tangerine, orange, turquoise, and pink tones. The easiest way to keep your decor new and preppy is by adjusting your cushion coverings.
Have an Umbrella Stand
Don’t forget to leave your front door with a stylish vase or basket so your friends and family won’t leave a water trail when they enter your home. Also, for a fun decor accent, plop a few colorful umbrellas in the umbrella.
Let Them Bloom
Take out all your vases and empty bottles of wine and fill them with the monsoon colors— peonies, lilies, and tulips. Modern urlis works too. From your backyard, pluck pretty jasmine and hibiscus and let them float with some water in the urli.
Your former wellington boots could also be re-used as a decorative flower vase. Style your entrance with this DIY vase of beautiful sunflowers or daisies.
