Bright wall colours, floral upholstery and monochrome decals are here to stay this season. Here are some options available for you.
Many a times, most people use one single colour in their house as the focal point. This trend is passe. Instead, use a printed wallpaper to liven up any space in your home — be it the bedroom, living area or balcony. Further, these wallpapers are often washable and thus, you can keep them clean during the monsoon. Bright colours in yellow, red and orange are in this season.
The best way to do up your pad is by giving your upholstery a makeover. Instead of using plain bright linens, go for something soft and soothing. It can simply be a few big flowers in shades of red and green. From bedspreads to curtains and table mats to linens — there is no end to it.
Choose rugs and durries instead of carpets
While it is easy to have a carpet placed in your living area and bedroom, you can give it a rest this monsoon. Instead, opt for small rugs and durries, which are easy to manage and can be washed during the monsoon, unlike carpets. Go for options which are light in texture and won’t make your room look clustered.
This is also the time of the year when your house looks beautiful if you have greenery around. For those who are fond of a balcony garden, you can create a faux grass and have flower pots placed on the side. If you do not have a balcony, don’t worry, you can still go for natural stuff like bamboo, jute etc. Open up the windows of your living room and have jute or bamboo chairs placed right in front of it. You can sip on your hot cuppa chai while watching the pitter-patter of rains.
Replace balcony chairs with bamboo swings
This is that time of the year when instead of sitting on the plastic or wooden chairs in your balcony, you can go in for swings which are made out of bamboo. There is nothing better than getting back home from work and relaxing on the swing in your balcony and reading your favourite book or just listening to songs. However, make sure that you don’t have a swing which is made of wood, else it will get spoilt because of rain water.
