Monsoon: warm, rainy and best enjoyed from the comfort of a cozy corner inside the house. Here’s how to make your corner as cozy as possible.

Whether your corner is a small nook in your home, or a bay window where you can enjoy the sound of the rain, start by making it your own with your favorite comfy seat. A small sofa seater or ottoman will fit easily into a corner and provide ample place to sit. You may also want to lay down a rug to give your feet something soft to rest on. Add plenty of cushions. You can never have enough cushions. A small shelf or a dual purpose ottoman can be used to hold some books or a journal, keeping everything in reach. 

Once you have the furniture all set, it’s time to make it feel more inviting on those overcast days. To start, add some warm lighting. For mood lighting, you could hang up fairy lights, or ball them up in a jar. If you prefer something brighter to read or write, a lamp may better serve your purpose. Add a touch of home with scented candles or tealights. Decorate the walls with your favorite photos or art. Add in some greenery with some succulents or cacti. 

Finally, throw a soft blanket onto your seat, grab your preferred hot drink and enjoy some Netflix or a book in your cozy new space.
