But rains are also the times when the day becomes dreary, gloomy and dull. The décor at home also gets a makeover.

When there is slight temperature drop during those months and you may want to keep your bedroom warm and inviting. Select the bed linen for your home. It is very important. Points to be taken care of while selecting the bed linen are:
Material, color and style are factors that you need to determine
Bedspread, duvet, cushion covers and pillows, all need to be chosen correctly. Since monsoons cast a dark shadow over your home, go for bright and vibrant shades. Yellow, green and orange are the best shades. Lighter shades increase the light available inside and add youthfulness to the space. Avoid darker tones. At the same time, don’t select white or beige shades for bed linen. They can be difficult to clean, if they get mud on it. Make the bedroom warm by adding pillow covers and cushions on the bed.
Candles and fragrances
Ensure that you add some candles and mild fragrances to your home to evade the moist smell away from the home. Keep them at coffee tables or side tables, so that you can lighten up the evening. Also, monsoon means power cut. This can be avoided by aromatic candles that offer light and fragrance at the same time.
Add bright shades in form of cushion covers

Umbrellas and raincoats should be placed at the nearest so that one doesn’t forget to take it while going outside the home. A good rug can be placed near the entrance to absorb water that rain may bring in.
