If you are lucky enough to have a home away from home in the likes of Spain, Greece, or quite simply anywhere; you will understand the joy and wonderful memories it brings. It is important to take pride in your summer getaway so that it provides you with nothing but relaxation when you visit; stress is certainly not an option when on holiday. To help your summer home connect with that bliss beach house feeling, here are the top additions for your summer getaway:
Turn Memories Into Unique Décor
The whole point of a summer getaway is to provide you with lifelong memories in a country that means the world to you. To keep these memories sacred, why not mount your favourite photos on to the wall and craft letters, tickets and trinkets alongside? This décor will not only remind you of the amazing times you have had but will also look unique to your home. This is a really fun project to undertake and you have full flexibility on decorating the photos however you wish.
One of the best things about having a second home is the fact that you can be as eccentric as you like and not have to worry about constant judgemental visitors. So, if you want a colourful kitchen, what’s stopping you?! (Don’t worry, this next option works for those who want a subtler effect, too). Acrylic sheets come in a wide variety of colours, thicknesses and finishes. Not only this, but they are also incredibly cheap and have a variety of uses. The most popular use for acrylic sheets is splashbacks. A colourful splashback will add a unique touch to your summer home and be truly unique and tailored to you. As well as splashbacks, acrylic sheets make perfect table protectors. You will be sure to find the perfect use.
Bring Furniture Outdoors
It’s probably best to pack this away while you aren’t there, but an outdoor set-up is perfect for a summer getaway and will ensure that you spend as much time in the sun as possible. Bringing a selection of pillows, rugs and chairs outside will create the perfect social space for those warm summer evenings.
Keep It Light
Nothing screams summer like light colours, so give yourself a little project this year and consider painting all dark wood white. This invites more light into the room, giving the illusion that it looks bigger. The summer vibes will definitely be flowing in your lovely new light space!
Create a Napping Nook
Let’s be real, one of the many highlights when it comes to spending time abroad is the fact that you can be as lazy as you like. The heat makes you tired, so why not bask in your new sense of relaxation and have a nap… in a napping nook! These can be pretty easy to create and are essentially just outside beds. Chuck some pillows and blankets on an outdoor-friendly mattress and enjoy your snooze in the sun!
