Colours and Contrast

Give an interesting twist to your room by choosing two contrasting colours – black and white or white and one bright colour – and use them as a repeating theme throughout, such as a row of yellow and white pillows on a sofa and two tone furnishings.

Opting for two tone furnishing schemes can instantly transform your house into a modern day work of art! If you don't agree, just try adding some beige sofas to your deep brown or black painted living room and see the area transform in front of your eyes. Using more than one colour in a room not only adds colour and pattern to a room, but also texture and warmth. It is indeed unbelievable how much a simple coat of paint can do to enliven and breathe life into monotone furniture or walls, if used in smart combinations.

Light Up Your Monsoon

Choosing the right kind of lighting options for your home can make a world of a difference to how your interiors will feel this monsoon. To create a harmonious and warm vibe for your interiors, make sure that your house is well lit by changing your white lights to yellow lights, as it lends a warmer look to your interiors making you feel more comfortable and optimistic. There are various types of lighting options like accent lighting, ambient lighting or task lighting, which can be used to enhance the look of different rooms in your house.

For the living room, low ambient lighting can be used for general illumination and accent lighting for high lighting show-pieces and paintings. Dim lights are recommended in bedrooms along with controlled lights, which can be used on either side of the bed for reading. A study room needs overall illumination, but it is wise to have table lamps so that one does not have to strain their eyes for reading, especially during the day when overall lighting is not needed. Last, but not the least, it is very important to pay special attention to bathroom lighting during the monsoons because apart from ambient lighting, it is important to have some natural lighting in your bathrooms to keep the stuffy feeling at bay.

Bedrooms are the place where we dream, so it is only fair for them to be the stuff dreams are made of! With some simple attention to detail, you too can turn your bedroom into the ultimate relaxing retreat that it is supposed to be. Seating arrangement will make the bedroom seem cosier, so add some loveseats to a corner for that perfect romantic spot. For those with larger than life bedrooms, make your walls less daunting by filling them with extra-large pieces of art to make the room feel modern and glamorous.

On the other hand, to make your bedroom look bigger, avoid small furniture as it makes a small bedroom look smaller. Instead, use a high bed and a tall headboard which will create an illusion of the room being bigger than it is, giving you the impression of living in a larger space. Finally, as one usually does not entertain guests in their bedroom, we often ignore decorating it. However, it is only right that we treat our bedrooms with the same attention as other parts of the house, because ultimately it is us who spend a large amount of time there.
