Tips For Monsoon Home Decor & Care

When nature starts unfolding its beauty know that the most beautiful time of the year- monsoon is here. The monsoon is short-lived in my part of the world so I leave no stone unturned to make the most of it. But like I said in my previous post that monsoon isn't only about all things pretty, it also brings with it something unpleasant. I talked about monsoon care for home exteriors in my previous post and today I'll talk about pre-monsoon care for home Interiors and some tips to style and decorate home interiors in monsoon. 

Home Interiors Care In Monsoon

Here's how I plan to protect my home against the damage caused by the monsoon. Interior of the home reflects the personality of its dwellers. So it is quite important to give attention to internal walls too. With time internal and external wall plaster starts to crack and debond. Timely attention should be given to prevent the ingress of water, peeling of paint and dampness on the internal walls. Seepage can spoil the look of home interiors entirely. I have a niche in my living room and its exterior wall is exposed to constant rains which led to the seepage in the wall. I repainted it several times to save it but to no avail. So here is a tip - do not paint mouldy surfaces as the paint will peel off. First clean and dry the surface then start painting.

No matter how costly your furniture and furnishing are, how beautifully you have arranged everything around your home, if internal walls are not in good condition and dampness, peeled paint and ugly spots of mould are visible then it definitely ruins the look of the home interiors. To get rid of seepage and dampness, I am going to get waterproofing of internal walls done. After that I plan to get the wall painting done. Specially formulated wall paints for interiors are what I am opting for. Silk Glamour tops the list because paint fumes are my biggest concern and I got to know that this product is free of harmful chemicals and is low in VOC (Volatile Organic Compound). 

Next issue is mould. Moisture level increases in the air during monsoon which leads to dampness and mould on the wall and ceiling. Here are some tips to keep the mould at bay. Fix all the plumbing and roof leaks. Keep all the materials dry. Moisture control is the key to keep mould from growing. Kitchen sink, bathroom floor and walls are the surfaces that remain wet most of the time so make sure to clean, disinfect and dry these surfaces regularly. Keeping windows open to permit air circulation is the best way to let dry the wet surfaces. Moving furniture little away from the wall for proper air circulation will help in controlling the dampness on the wall and it will limit the growth of mould. Moulds can easily grow and spread in the soil of house plants. Adding mold preventing solutions in soil is the solution to this problem.

Once these monsoon-related problems are tackled, it is easy to decorate and style our homes with accessories that are just perfect for monsoons like plants, blooms, aroma candles, quilts, colorful furnishing and spices. Here's how.
Monsoon is ideal weather to snuggle up with a hot cup of tea and a warm quilt that will be your best companion in this windy weather. I always place a quilt either on the back of my swing chair or on the sofa so that I can grab it easily whenever I want it. The shades of black and grey start to overpower during monsoon so to add some cheer I place fresh blooms in vivid colours. A bunch of flowers placed on a coffee table or single stem flowers in any corner make an elegant display and perk up any space instantly. Furnishings in bright hues also help in lifting the mood in grey weather.


When monsoon knocks the door nature replaces brown by green. Placing some plants indoors reminds that the season of new hopes is here. It certainly creates a soothing effect and boosts positive energy.
Though the smell of wet earth after rain is just perfect to rejuvenate our senses there is certainly something bad about this season too and that is musty, damp smell that comes with the monsoon. So here I have a tip to get rid of that unpleasant smell, make your own aroma candles. Aroma candles not only create a warm ambience but also fill your home with a pleasant aroma.

One more way to make a home smell divine is to use spices. Spices can be used to decorate our homes too. A coffee table is a place where we can show our creativity and can easily bring about the change according to the season or according to the theme. Here is how spices can be displayed in a beautiful way on the coffee table of the living room. Few cinnamon sticks and a candle can do the magic, arranging the cinnamon sticks all around the candle and securing them with beaded or plain twine will create a whimsical arrangement. When the candle will be lit it will make your space smell divine. One more way to add spice to your decor is a whole array of spices in a bowl or tray with some tea lights on a coffee table. To add some height you can use glass jar instead of bowl and tray to display all the spices.

Don't shy away from putting up some seashells and conch to bring in the monsoon vibes. Place some good books on the coffee table to read and you are ready to put your feet up, curl up on the couch and pretend you are on the hills or at the beach :)
Happy Decorating folks!!!
