Gear Up For The Monsoons!

Gear Up For The Monsoons!

Monsoons are that perfect time of the year to sit by the window, watch the rain and enjoy a cup of your favourite drink. These are the upsides of the rains and while this is one of the most amazing times of the year, it is also that time when your home sweet home turns into a gloomy and dull place due to the lack of sunlight. So, to combat the downside of the monsoons, we have come up with a few simple and easy tips for you to make your interiors look and feel lively!

First things first, and let us start with the drapes adorning your windows. This is the time to go for flowing, lightweight and colourful fabric, which will allow more light to get in and also add some colour on a gloomy day. Another good thing about flowing drapes is that unlike heavy drapes, they keep out the musty feeling. Next up on the list are seasonal blooms placed in tall vases arranged attractively around the house to glam up the gloomy days.

If you are a greenery loving person, then you can also bring in some plants like money plants and bamboo shoots in attractive pots. Place these on window sills or shelves to give a livelier feel to your interiors. Also, do not forget to get some attractive looking mats and baskets, which can be used to store the rain gear brought in by guests. While a big entrance mat will be extremely handy to soak in the water and mud brought in by your visitors.

Last but not the least, with temperatures slightly dipping, it will be the perfect time to have cosy evenings with candle lit interiors. So, get some fragrant candles in different sizes and shapes to get a golden glow to your home. The best part is they will also keep your home smelling fresh and keep away the stuffy smell of the monsoons!

It is Time to Go Quirky!

It is Time to Go Quirky!

There are times when we are bored with pretty much everything, and one of the things that top this list is our own house because that is where we spend a lot of our time! So, this time, we are here with a few quick ideas to make your house look new and quirky. Since we've covered a lot of simple DIY tips, we've come up with a few cool and crazy tips for your interiors. Some of the quirky tips are as follows:

  • Instead of drilling holes in the wall to hang curtain rods, use sleek looking command hooks to hang your rods.
  • Get rid of all your boring curtain tiebacks and get some rhinestone necklaces from the flea markets to have your own personal bohemian curtain tiebacks.
  • Bored of accent walls? Add a pop of colour by painting the sides of your door in a hot pink colour shade, or orange or whatever you like!
  • Just like your doors, one way to jazz up your dresser is to paint the sides of a dresser in bright pretty colours like red, yellow and green for a fresh look!
  • Have an unused fireplace at your house or something that is remotely like a fireplace? We suggest you use this space to light an array of candles and light up your place on those cosy evenings.
  • This tip is an absolute stunner once you get it done. Take a lampshade and lots of glitter. Coat the inside of the lampshade with a thick layer of glitter and the next time you light up this lampshade you will be greeted with a gorgeous reflective light effect.

We will be back with more of these quirky tips. Right now, you need to go and try out these tips and glam up your interiors!

Ditch the Decorating Rules!

We hate to break this to you but the best interior designers in the world don't follow a rule book. It's just about looking inside-out for inspiration and using a bit of imagination. Yes, we all have the creativity; it's just waiting to be explored. And as for inspiration, it's all around you in the form of nature, art, colours, music, etc. Develop your own quirky style with these simple tips.

Paint can wait: We know the obvious thing that comes to mind while redecorating is to choose a paint colour. But wait, first have a good look at the space, understand the light that rooms get and then choose a colour, accordingly. What looks good in your current home might not in your new one. Also, the colour has to match your furniture, rugs, upholstery, etc. So, it's best to keep this decision for the end.

Place the art at the right height: Follow the gallery and museums rule here, they hang artwork so that the midline (centre) of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. (The average human eye level is 57 inches.) And you should do the same for an aesthetic look.

Don't follow themes: Popular themes very often lack individuality. This is where you put your creativity to play. Stay away from popular clichés. Close your eyes and imagine a space you would like to call your own, incorporate those elements and you will have a space you adore.

Choose a star: Having a multi-star cast works wonders for a film but the same does not hold true of interior design. Here, you need to pick a single star and allow it all the limelight. It can be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, an art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom. Just pick a statement piece that stands out.

Create a personal space that has you coming back and more importantly, makes the house feel like a home. A kind of space you would like to hide in after a hard day's work. Stylish homes are instinctive, so, follow your instincts.
