Create Your Own Perfect Place of Serenity
After the chaos of the holidays are over you may be in search for places of peace where you can envision yourself sitting quietly, enjoying the view and/or great company, or getting your mind together for the new year and those new resolutions. Here are three spaces in your own home that could serve as a mental vacation for you and your friends and family!
Below is a space we like to call “Happy Hour for Two”. A long hallway with two seats, no TV, nor any other distractions as well as soft lighting and a few wall accents is all you need. Great debates, planning, and/or brainstorming could take place here and with any kind of functional relationship, communication is key. If you have a long hallway with a little extra space you can put it to use!
This is totally a “Summertime Sanctuary”, with your glass (or pitcher) of White Sangria placed on the table for you and your friends, you could have an iPod docked somewhere close by and enjoy your music of choice while solving all of the world’s problems. Any outdoor area can be transformed with the right furniture whether a patio, backyard or poolside, and now is the perfect time to get a great deal on outdoor furniture since it’s out of season. You can have it ready before Spring arrives. After all, sunshine and fresh air are the perfect combination to unwinding at the end of a long day or week and refueling for the next.
This is a MUST HAVE to complete the aura of relaxation in your home. Steal away, if only for a moment, and relax in your own luxurious bath while watching golf, or turning to one of the all-music channels and reflecting if you are able to add a TV or radio. You can create the perfect bath-time environment by adding candles, floral accents, and soft lighting. Perfect private getaway right on the other side of your bedroom!
Take advantage of these spaces in your home and you’ll be amazed how often you can escape the hustle and bustle of the world. Turn your home into the vacation spot you’ve always dreamed of having and feel more refreshed than ever before.
