Make Your Home Feel More Like Your Favorite Vacation Spot

June 26, 2018

Vacation is a great way to take a break from the everyday and reset. However, eventually every wonderful trip comes to an end. Since packing the beach in your suitcase is messy, there are easier ways to incorporate some of the relaxing, luxurious vacation vibes into your living space. Here is a short list of what we recommend but contact us for even more ideas:

Spruce up your entry
High-end hotels typically have a sparkling, beautiful lobby with fresh flowers and comfortable seating. Follow these same guidelines and keep the entrance of your home tidy and don’t be afraid to add a little glam. After all, there are no second chances when it comes to first impressions.

Splurge on towels
Every great hotel has fabulous towels. Don’t underestimate what a statement fresh, fluffy towels makes to your everyday, guests and potential buyers alike. A great scented soap by the sinks also goes a long way in incorporating a little luxury.

Re-think your color scheme
While bright colors can be a fun way to personalize a space, neutral color palettes evoke a more luxurious atmosphere. Keep the walls, floors and major areas in your home neutral. Add pops of color seasonally through personal items, pillows, rugs and throw blankets. A simple color scheme will also make your home appeal to more buyers when you are ready to sell.

Transform your outdoor living space
You may not have a five-star view, but furnish your patio or deck like you do. Sheer white drapery goes a long way for adding a little privacy and an expensive feel to your outdoor area. Add pillows and cushions to your furniture and some candles for ambiance (and to keep pesky mosquitoes away).
