The rainy season is upon us. Although it’s a welcome break from the sweltering heat we’ve been experiencing for several months now, the consistent downpour doesn’t always bring the most pleasant of feelings at home.

Rainy Day Decor You Can Play Around With
Featuring some of our best pieces that you can transform into rainy day decor, get ready to breathe life back into your living space.
Drop some eye candy around with metallic light fixtures
When it’s rainy, your house is enveloped in darkness. It may be cozy for some, but the feeling quickly fades away and gloom starts to kick in. Another downside is that shadowed areas of the house give off the vibe that you’re clumped into a very small space. As a solution, brighten up dark corners with Oaklane’s acclaimed light fixtures—and for extra oomph, go for the metallics!
Metallic light fixtures double the goal of illumination because its shiny exterior bounces light off to the surfaces. The Mirai table lamp can be the perfect decoration for your corner coffee table. If you want to add a rustic feel to your living room, you can try a quirkier home decor trend with the Luna pendant lamp, which is designed to look like a caged bird.
Tease your senses with scented candles
Placing scented candles all over your living room is a small change that gives a big impact on your rainy day decor. You can place it on your center table, along the windowsill, or even on a dark corner. Scented candles will not only add illumination to your living room, but they will also take away the musty and damp scent of the rain. Not to mention, it adds a sense of comfort and relaxation to your home!

Topiaries are a great alternative to live plants because they don’t require a lot of care while still looking very real.

Give your feet extra comfort with carpets
Normally, it’s better to roll away your carpet during the rainy season because it easily grows mold with the humidity and is difficult to maintain with the wetness. However, carpets made with polyester are moisture-resistant, so they are very easy to clean without damaging their surface. Carpets are a great way to add a layer of texture to your classic home decor, so don’t let the monsoon stop you from using them! Oaklane has a selection of polyester carpets you can choose from—make sure you check it out.
Be practical when shopping for your coffee table
