1. Surround yourself with Good Lighting

Fill your home with warm lights. It’s not going to be sunny always, so make sure that when the sun goes down or hides from thick clouds, you should create clusters of illumination where you want focal conversation points to be. Make sure you have an abundance of light in your space!


2. Have a Well-lit Reading Nook

For those who love to have a good book and a nice cup of hot choco on a rainy day, having a reading nook is paradise. Create your reading oasis with a comfortable seat, cushions,  throw pillows, and perfect lighting. Add an ambient light, natural or recessed, then layer accent lighting and finish with task lighting.


3. Make your Bedroom Comfortable

During rainy days, it’s best to stay in bed. Make yourself a bedroom that resembles a vacation retreat or a 5-star hotel room. Surround yourself with comfortable furnishings and items you love, and have some luxurious lights here and there.

Chandeliers with crystal and glass finishes provide a classic and lux ambiance.
