8 Easy Ways to Make Everyday Feel Like a Holiday at Home

Now that spring is in session, things call for an update. Our ample time indoors makes it even more important for us to change it up once in a while, whether that be in our wardrobe or in our home. Considering getaway plans are being put on hold, staycation it is! Of course, it’s still possible to feel like you’re on your dream holiday by sprucing up your decor and building your very own escape-ready outfits. 

Do you miss lounging on the beachside? Perhaps you’re nostalgic of winter retreat memories? Whatever your vacation style, we’ve got tricks to share on how you can replicate these experiences for the spring/summer. There’s no reason to stop the fun even when we’re stuck indoors. 

Bring the tropics to you with good lighting and colors

Shop the White Coral Lamp ($99.99)

Just because your trip to the tropics had to be canceled, doesn’t mean you can’t bring the beach to you. Recreate the refreshing feeling of being in the sun and sand via a well-illuminated space, sea scents, cheerful greenery, and your best destination dresses and cover-ups. Whether you prefer maxi or mini cuts, we love channeling a full vacation feel with bright, warm colors. It will double as an update to your spring selections too!

Shop the Split Leaf Greenery in Black Deco Vase ($59.95)

Shop the Life's A Beach - Tropical Fruit Votives 8 Pc ($29.95)

Shop the Solid Sleeveless Tiered Ruffle Dress ($49.95)

Shop the Multi Nautical Stripe Shawl ($20)

Turn your living room into a cozy cabin

Shop the Ultra Soft Mountainside Lodge Handmade Woven Blanket ($177)

Missing the vibe of winter already? Just like a cool hideaway at a ski resort, you, too, can create a cabin feel in your abode. Spice up your living room with soft, textured pillows, fuzzy throws, and your favorite knitwear will conjure up a snuggly atmosphere that’s perfect for lounging. Kickstart this transformation this weekend to start unwinding with Netflix movie nights and a  cuddle session with the pets. 

Shop the Soft Natural Chenille Throw ($34.95)

Shop the Oatmeal Phlox And Pink Hydrangea Decorative Pillow ($336.95)

Shop the Tie Dye Loungewear Set Jogger Pj Pajama Set ($79.95)

Shop the Super Soft Plus Size Lounge Robe ($63.95)

Recreate a spa retreat in your bathroom

Shop the Golden Shimmer Bath Accessories ($31.99)

You won’t believe how the little things can create fresh and renewed energy into a room. There’s no need for extravagant purchases to create a relaxing luxe spa retreat. What you can do is give your bathroom an upgrade with better accessories, lighting, scented candles, and bath salts just like how spruced-up bathrooms do at upscale resorts. If you’re feeling like doing more, adding some smart storage and a fresh coat of paint will take it up a notch. 

Shop the Geometric Patter Bath Accessory Set ($37.99)

Shop the Round Wooden Mirror with Shelf ($76.99)

Shop the Happy Day Honey Filled Candle Set ($32.95)

Shop the Fleur-De-Lis Wall Sconce Duo ($67.95)

Hang a hammock

Shop the Espresso Hammock Chair ($43.99)

One of the things we love about traveling in the countryside or the islands is the outdoor afternoon snooze. You can explore a new R&R style even at home by hanging a hammock in your backyard. Catch up on your reading list with a good book, get some well-deserved shut-eye, or even dress up in your tropical frocks and straw hat just for the fun of it.  

Shop the Cotton Padded Swing Chair ($59.99)

Shop the Digital Handmade Printed Kaftan Dress ($59.95)

Shop the Asa Sunglasses ($64.95)

Shop the Adrienne Vittadini Straw Seashell Floppy Hat ($77.95)

Give yourself a 5-star hotel experience

Shop the Safavieh Zen 11.5" Full Spring Mattress ($669.95)

Remember the crisp sheets, purified air, and fancy amenities you used to get each time you check into a lavish hotel? That kind of comfort is probably why sleep comes so easy on vacation. Why not incorporate the same luxe treatment into your bedroom? Warm, thick blankets, fresh new sheets, a softer mattress, ambient lighting, and cozy rugs will do just the trick. If you can repaint or trade your wallpaper with lighter, more soothing colors, that’s already a big upgrade that might just rival the feel of a plush accommodation. 

Shop the J&M Oil Green Fleece Blanket King 108x90 ($49.95)

Shop the Safavieh Faux Fur Dalmation Brown Pillow ($69.95)

Shop the Safavieh Quatrefoil Flush Mount Pendant Light ($169.95)

Shop the Silver Wool Rug ($119.95)

Cook outside and dine al fresco

Shop the Banana Leaf Print Outdoor Napkin (Set Of 6) ($22.95)

Take advantage of the warm weather by taking your kitchen outside. Fire up your grill and set the table with new tablecloths, plates, runners, and colorful napkins. This is a great way to beat the heat indoors during the summertime as your kitchen can get hot and feel stuffy. Plus, dining al fresco is a way you can gather the family and spend some quality time. Maybe you’ll even see this small bash as a chance to change up your patio and deck furniture.  

Shop the Harvest Orange Check Fringed Apron ($19.95)

Shop the Gold Pineapple Plate Large Set Of 2 ($39.95)

Shop the Nautical Blue Lattice Tablecloth 60x104 ($39.95)

Shop the Flower Garden Embellished Table Runner 14x108 ($44.95)

Upgrade your backyard

Shop the Espresso Cotton Padded Swing Chair ($59.99)

Before you can kick up your feet and relax, perhaps it’s time to initiate a backyard facelift. Forge a paradisiacal environment by updating your outdoor furnishings and decor with chic planters, swings, benches, and even a fountain. Adding pretty foliage and statues, too, can make lounging outdoors more pleasant. Plus, it’s like casting the Netherlands’ tulip season right at home. Once you’re done, you’ll notice just how big of an effect a bit of modification can bring to your outdoor space.

Shop the Designer Trio Ceramic Plant Pots ($75.99)

Shop the Wishing Well Solar Water Fountain (Incl. Pump) ($267.99)

Shop the Tall Flying Flamingo Statue ($74.99)

Throw an evening garden soirée

Shop the Safavieh Radley Silver Iron Bar Cart ($339.95)

The festivities don’t have to stop, just change a little. Your private garden party can be more entertaining during the evenings by creating your very own minibar. Get new glassware, try different beverages, and perhaps a bar cart if you’re feeling fancy to serve around the yard or poolside. This can also be an excuse to dress up like old times and bring out the fun florals. Try having everyone experiment making summer-ready cocktails and see who can make the best one. You can polish up your mixing skills too, because just like the vacation mindset, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. 

Shop the Gold Pineapple Bottle Stopper (Set Of 2) ($36.95)

Shop the Closet Gold Yellow Bardot High Low Dress ($136.95)

Shop the Apricot Pleated Midi Skirt ($198.95)

Shop the Black Floral Wrap Over Tie Front Jumpsuit ($150.95)

Small efforts are a big deal too

As we spend more time indoors, we tend to feel stuck and naturally build a life of routine. Take some time to make your living space feel homier and engage in leisurely activities you love, even if it’s just recreating them in your own ways. You’ll be surprised how small adjustments and efforts like shopping for new pillows, cooking special meals, and dressing up can make a huge impact on  both your home and your mood.
