Who else is in urgent need of a VACATION?
With the whole world turned upside down, and people being urged to STAY at home, going away for a holiday abroad seems less and less likely this summer. But who said that you have to travel far to find relaxation and recharge your batteries? Couldn’t we transform our home into our own little holiday resort? It’s a definite YES from me!
How to recreate a holiday feeling at home
1. The sound of holiday
Create a playlist with your favorite vacation tunes. Whether it is the relaxing sound of crashing waves, the jungle call of some wild animals, or upbeat Caribbean rhythms for your long haul travel experience…
2. Shhh do not disturb, your very own chill-out zone is waiting for you
Grab a throw and some cushions, I love these Macrame style, ones for the ultimate summer holiday feeling and transform your sofa or garden chair into your personal sun lounger. Guaranteed no towel reservation necessary!

3. Pack your beach bag
4. Jungle call
A room full of greenery can immediately transport you to a country far far away. You can either choose real ones or if you’re lacking a green thumb like I do, rely on artificial tropical plants instead. They won’t even complain if we forget to water them from all this STAYCATION relaxaaaation…
5. Holiday snaps
What would a vacation be without some picture memories? Grab your smartphone and take some STAYCATION selfies. You in the desert, you by the sea….
Tip: Use your favorite snap to create and send online postcards to your friends & family.
Now I’m curious where your STAYCATION is taking you!
I’m feeling a trip to “living room Bali” coming up soon…
Happy holidaying at home!
