With the monsoons just around the corner, we're going to find ourselves indoors more often than we'd like to. And while most of us enjoy the idea of watching the rains pour down, drenching the dry and parched earth after a brutal summer, it also makes us seek out the warmth of our cosy home a little more. Believe us when we say that a classy monsoon decor makeover is as much about comfort and convenience as it is about improved aesthetics.

1. Bright accents to liven up living room spaces
If the overcast skies are a complete mood dampener, bright interior accents are what you need! Thankfully, there are a variety of ways to inject colour pops into the space - think cushions, pillows and throw rugs. But guess what, your choices don’t end there; give way to your individualistic style and bring out colourful pottery pieces hiding inside cupboards and integrate them with your casual decor style for splashes of colour and texture all around. Painting and artworks can add so much life to walls and oodles of colour and style to your decor.

2. Marrying form to function
Another great way to give your interiors that monsoon makeover is to use pieces that make a bold style statement while also being highly functional for the season. A great example is an umbrella stand put up next to the entrance door in bright, playful colours. Other great options are thick, coir doormats at the entrance to wipe off wet muddy feet and wicker baskets used to stash raincoats before coming indoors.
 
3. Gauzy Curtains and Sheer Fabrics
Gauzy, sheer curtains are great for the monsoons when getting enough natural light into your interiors can be challenging. They are the easiest and most cost effect way to make your home airy and feel well ventilated. The season can also make your interiors smell musty and stale; you'd want to be able to prop open the windows a little to let the cool breeze in. For this, light and gauzy curtains do not interfere with air circulation the way heavier silk and velvet curtains do. In fact, open up your light blinds every morning, crack open a window and let the fresh air in to create a good cross flow of air.

4. Artificial lighting for dull days
Rainy days are often dark and gloomy with bare minimum natural sunlight being available. Change some of the white lights in your home to yellow lights for soft mood lighting that can lift your spirit without being too jarring. Trendy table lamps and floor lamps in Indian motifs that reflect an idiosyncratic South Asian seasonal experience are perfect, as are modern, geometric shapes or matte steel lighting fixtures coupled with glass for a contemporary decor style. And don’t forget candle decor for further mood lighting. Aromatic candles will infuse your living spaces with fresh scents that keep out the musty odours of the rains while also adding an additional layer of soft lighting and accent colours to your decor.
 
5. Add a few floral touches
Most of us move indoor plants to outdoor spaces in the monsoons as these can cause seasonal allergies and also make indoor spaces more humid. But, when the world around is green and bursting with fresh colours, who can resist a vibrant flower arrangement? Also, lively and fragrant flowers in a plethora of colours juxtaposed against a dull wall, can uplift the mood and is a rather inexpensive way to redress boring interiors. Adding fresh cut flowers to a side table is almost as effective as floral inspired fabrics.
