Staycation Inspiration

May 22nd, 2014

Hello hello! We’re still off on our island vacation this week, visiting enchanting places that make you sigh and dream and wish you could stay forever. But we all know that’s not a reality (at least in the here and now) so it’s essential to create special nooks, corners, or places of bliss indoors and out in our homes for those weeks of the year that we can’t be on holiday.

Summer is upon us, so what better time to create a “staycation spot” of your own if it doesn’t exist yet ?!  I asked some of my favorite bloggers to share theirs, be inspired to create one of your own too!

Melissa from The Inspired Room:

“In the spring and summer months, my favorite “staycation spot” is on my covered front porch! It is such a peaceful and relaxing setting. The breezes are cool here so I can escape to read, write or just get away for awhile by stepping outside my front door”

Dana from House*Tweaking:

“If I were on staycation at home, you would probably find me in my bedroom. With swing arm wall lamps, an upholstered headboard and a nightstand full of design books, my bed is the perfect place to relax and read. Add live greenery and a glass of wine and it’s a bona fide vacation to me!”

Matthew Mead from Holiday with Matthew Mead:

“Engage your backyard and make it magical for entertaining and relaxing. Corral vintage bamboo furniture, candles in colorful vintage glass, cozy pillows and white lights to hang from trees, decks and pergolas. I love evening in my backyard with a few simple decorations, candle light and lots of refreshing drinks to entertain my guests and enjoy a long summer evening.”
