Come monsoon and you like to sit by the window and watch the rain drops fall. A cup of piping hot tea or coffee along with some pakoras equals happiness during a rainy day! Monsoon is also known to be very dull and gloomy. Your house is a mess as you can find clothes all around waiting to get dry. Don't let the gloom ruin your happy mood. You can brighten the decor of your home by making these simple and effective changes to your home.

#1 Bed-sheets
