Does your Summer vacay feel like a distant memory? When we think of the Christmas holidays, it’s salty hair, bronzed skin, long days at the beach or pool, barbecues on the back deck and relaxing with family and friends. Hold on to those Summertime feels the whole year round, and create a resort style, holiday oasis at home. We promise there’s zero tinsel involved.
We’re talking dreamy, sheer bed canopies reminiscent of Bali, but with a coastal, modern twist, tropical inspired deck chairs in soft colours, vintage print umbrellas and statement hammocks.
Carry the holiday look right through your home with some thoughtfully styled vignettes. Though they be but small, they are mighty! A casual stack of books nested beside a lamp and woven basket; your favourite bowl of seashells collected by your daughter alongside a photo frame and stone vessel. These seemingly small scenes and details give each room points of interest, carry subtle colour references and assist in building a theme or story throughout your home. And importantly, some well balanced vignettes are a great way to channel some holiday vibes using treasures you’ve collected from travels or favourite holidays spots.
And, if you’re serious about capturing that holiday feeling, go all the way and incorporate real beach sand as a floor covering in your backyard/outdoor dining area. There really is no limit to your imagination with this look. Go as low key or as luxe as you like!
If you’re still not feeling that holiday happiness, pull out the bronzer and fake bake, whip up a Margarita, get busy on Pinterest and start dreaming of your next vacay.
