How to Enjoy the Ultimate Staycation for FreeLiving & Lifestyle
3 minutes read
Instead of spending money on hotel stays, why not create your own vacation at home. Imagine coming home to a relaxing sanctuary every single day. The ultimate staycation is one that is nothing but comfort and relaxation (and free!) – simple luxury that everyone can definitely have with these 7 easy tips!
1. Design Your Private Sanctuary
Use ambient lighting like bedside lamps and candles to set the mood. Ensure that your room is free of mess, and lay out fresh sheets. The right ambience and soft clean sheets are the first step to a relaxing bedroom.
2. Simple Everyday Comfort
Plush rugs, cushions and sofas go a long way in making a space feel luxurious and comfortable. Unwinding to your favourite movie with a drink in hand will feel so much more pleasurable with these simple everyday items – as long as you choose the right (read: soft and cushy) ones.
3. Green Your Space
Bring the outdoors in and introduce potted plants. These will help to make your space feel fresh and invigorating. Get cacti, succulents if you’re more comfortable with small-scale plants. If not, go all out with a bigger pot of ferns or other plants available at local nurseries.
4. Personalise Your Décor
Make sure to decorate your home with things you love. These could be little trinkets you bought from past vacations, gifts from loved ones, or even print out your favourite Instagram images and frame them up on the walls!
5. Hotel Inspiration
If you particularly want the luxurious hotel vibes, then feel free to take inspiration from your favourite hotels. From the lighting to the colour palettes, and even linens used – modeling your interiors after your favourite hotel is a great way to create your very own staycation space.
6. Destination Decorating
If there’s a special vacation you’ve had that you’ll always love, for example, that lovely honeymoon you had in Greece – show it in your home! Decorate with colours, sculptures or paintings that remind you of the time you had. This will give your home a slightly exotic flair.
7. Pay Attention to the Details
Last but not least, one crucial thing you should always do is pay attention to the details. This means the type of textures and material you introduce into your home. From textiles like faux sheepskin rugs to accouterment like subtly luxurious wooden trays to display your tea set or to house your essentials when you’re home (keys, wallet, etc).
