Adding colors to brighten up your home
This season with its damp, humid and overcast days needs a soul-stirring freshness to revive it. Monsoon should be about refreshing vibes with earthy colours and floral prints.

Go earthy
Refurbish homes with loom woven dhurrie or wool infused kilims as rugs and mats to create a natural and unrefined look. These are hand washable and safe during the rainy days and gives the space an added dimension

Go vibrant
Despite low sunlight and grayish tone of the ambiance, one can go effervescent by adding together colors using multihued soft furnishings, kitchenware, serve ware, table, bed and bathroom linen. They bring a lovely change with additional tints and twinkle

Go floral
Floral prints together with geometric, paisley, damask, chevron and scroll as well as the traditional, Indian lifestyle, food, costumes and cultural blueprints create an impressive array of furnishings and designer crockery and cutlery ware for the kitchen, making it look sophisticated and eye-catching

Go radiant

Adding a series of decorative lights, lanterns, gel and wax, scented and enhancing candles bring much desirable illumination and makes the place beam with insignia. These also append an alluring and stimulating fragrance to the room

Go organic
In the humid season of rains, adopting skin friendly linen made of cotton and silk is highly advisable. They absorb perspiration, is organic and safe to the skin and environment while is capable of carrying varied hues, prints and handwork like embroidery and zari. The cotton fabric is easy to maintain and looks rich at home

Monsoon decor is all about keeping the space animated, clean and in the pink. Add vivacity using quirky ornamental products that are season-friendly and enjoy adorning your drenched homes.
