Monsoon-friendly home decor tips

    Much as we romanticise the monsoons, they can be a bit of a damper, literally and figuratively. For one, there will be days when wet clothes hang like buntings in your home. But besides that, you will also need to make some decor changes to manage the effect of the monsoons on your home interiors.


    1. ROLL ON
    Roll up and put away those thick carpets and rugs. In fact, the best time to shampoo your carpets and rugs would be a week or so before the rains begin. Damp carpets stink and it’s going to be a while before the sun comes out.

    The same applies to thick drapes and curtains. Replace thick curtains with light, quick-dry ones. That way, you can enjoy the fine spray of the rains through your windows with billowing curtains for extra effect. Damp curtains can quickly be made crisp and ready, by ironing them with scented water.

    The bleak grey skies can be a bit of a downer on your mood. Inject from joie de vivre indoors by bringing out your most colourful decor objects. Photo frames, flower vases, upholstery in vivid colours is a great way to beat the monsoon blues.

    Flowers always cheer up a space and nothing can improve the mood during a rainy week like fresh flowers. Remember to change the water every day.

    Since you’re likely to be spending a lot of time indoors, freshen up the air with indoor fragrances. From the traditional dhoop and smoke-free incense to reed sticks soaked in essential oils, there are many options today. Use scented drawer liners in your cupboards or place perfumed pouches in cupboards to prevent the dank smell.

    I had to take a minute and send you a note letting you know how wonderful Barry is. He is working with my husband and me to help us buy our first house. Barry is amazing…he’s so patient and knowledgeable and fun. As first time home buyers, we know nothing, and living on the opposite side of the state doesn’t make Barry’s job any easier, but you’d never know those obstacles exist because every interaction with him is so flawless. I can’t thank you enough for having such an awesome Realtor for us…
