The tropical monsoon evokes emotion and nostalgia, triggering memories through sights, sounds, and aromas that we associate with exuberance and vitality.

Loved by many, the weather can often confine us to our homes for prolonged periods. Languid drizzle or torrential downpour, each nudges us to embrace the cocoon of our dwellings in a new light.

To make the best of the season, we exchanged notes with architects Meena Murthy Kakkar, design head and partner, Envisage – Gurgaon, and Shalini Chandrashekar, principal designer and co-founder, Taliesyn, Design & Architecture, Bengaluru, on some tricks to lend spaces a new lease of life this monsoon.

“Most people associate monsoons with beauty and a spectacle with splashes of rain and gusts of wind—petrichor (the smell of wet earth) is a given! For some, showers tend to be gloomy and rigid, ensuring the compulsion of being indoors. But with proper use of decor and house maintenance, monsoons can bring joy inside the house,” says Kakkar.
