Its summer time and we’re dreaming about vacation! Escaping this Houston heat (or occasional hurricane) is sometimes a must. There is something magical about submerging yourself into a new environment and getting lost in its beauty.
Strapped on time or funds? A staycation and exploring your city could be a welcome break to clear your mind. Go for a walk in the park, take photos, open your eyes and take in the everyday beauty often overlooked. The key word is getting INSPIRED. We often get inspiration from posts on social media, especially Pinterest. Check out this color scheme that transports us to a suburb of France.
Here are some tips on incorporating these vacation vibes into your own home.
- Use your inspiration as a starting off point. Find a piece of art, rug, or drapery that combines all of your colors.
- Distressing existing furnishings can transform mismatched furniture into a unified look.
- Add interior plants to your space. Don’t have a green thumb? Check out the ZZ plant! It requires very little light and only required watering about once a month.
- Souvenirs can be a great way to furnish your home with beautiful memorable accessories.
