Whether you are travel obsessed or you miss the sensation of being able to relax without any responsibilities hanging over you, there are many ways that you can decorate your home to make it feel as if you are on vacation all the time. With the coronavirus pandemic preventing travel for months to come, here are some of the steps that you should take to remind yourself of your favorite places across the globe:
Buy Landscape Fine Art
If you are not a natural-born photographer and often find that your travel photographs are underwhelming, you may not want to hang these up on your walls for all to see. Instead, you should consider buying natural abstract photography and landscape fine art that can remind you of your travels and allow you to soak in the view even when you are at home. You can even look for photography of the destinations that you have recently traveled to or that you want to go to in the future.
Display Travel Souvenirs
Although many people choose to pack their travel souvenirs away on their return home, you should consider displaying these around your home, especially if you have a penchant for buying souvenir ornaments or home décor. These travel souvenirs can then bring a smile to your face throughout the day by reminding you of happy memories whether or not you have a vacation booked and can even inspire you to take another.
Distill the Right Scents
Is there a certain scent that reminds you of being on vacation, such as the smell of the sea breeze or certain spices? If this is the case, you should consider harnessing aromatherapy to bring these smells right into your home. To do this, all you need is a reed diffuser or even incense sticks to which you can add oil or a candle that you can light to transport you back to your favorite places around the world and the sensation of being on vacation.
Think About Your Soft Furnishings
Soft furnishings are one of the easiest parts of your décor to switch up within your home. To help you to be reminded of travel, you should consider investing in blankets and throws that have been made abroad or buying pillows and cushions that have maps plastered across them. If you miss the soft sheets that you find in hotels, you should also consider buying satin or silk variations that can help you to drift off into a dreamy sleep.
Repurpose Travel Accessories
If you have no use for your travel accessories now that you are spending more time at home, you should consider finding ways of repurposing them. For instance, you can make a table or a shelf out of your old suitcase. You should also consider investing in traditional ornaments that can remind you of travel, such as globes that can help you to pick your next destination.
