Bring a "Vacation Vibe" Back to Your Home

If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to stay in a nice hotel or home while you’re on vacation, it might have given you the opportunity to enjoy a few features that you might not have in your own home. This change of scenery really gives you a chance to open your eyes to some new thoughts and ideas about design elements that you might like to include in your own home. Some of these features might work in your current home and some might not. But there are always ways that you can bring the feel of that vacation environment home with you.

Here are a few tips for bringing that vacation vibe back to your own home.

10 Ways To Cozy Up Your Home For Fall


Create technology-free areas. Technology is great and it’s something we enjoy having at our fingertips. However, create some spaces in your home that are technology-free. This can help create a relaxing environment. For instance, a place to read without the distraction of notifications going off in the background. This is more important than ever with so many people working from home.

Add rich color.


Add small elements of luxury to your space. For example, fresh flowers, a luxurious throw blanket, scented candles, and accent lighting. All of these things can be a cost-effective way to add that luxurious vacation feel to any home.


Purchase items on vacation and work them into your home’s decor. A piece of artwork purchased on vacation can be the catalyst for a whole room’s decor. Having a piece of artwork with a history tied to it can certainly bring back nice memories and add personality to your space. While on vacation, we sometimes have access to things we might not ordinarily see. It’s a great time to sort out decorative artwork or accessories for your space.


When you return home, look at your home in a whole new light. If you enjoyed a luxury master bath space on vacation, take a look at your own bathroom space to see if there might be room for improvement. Even something as simple as constructing a nook to enjoy your morning coffee can be a great way to create a relaxing vacation feel in your home.

Add rich color.


If you enjoyed a beautiful light-filled space with a view on vacation, take a look at your own home. See if there are ways to bring more natural light into your house. A space filled with natural light can create a great mood in any home.

Create a list of all of the elements you enjoyed in your vacation space so that once you get back to the grind, you will remember what elements are essential to you. We spend so much time in our homes that it is great to create a few design features to help you to feel as though every day is a vacation.

Until Next Time,
