Everyone wants their residence to feel just like a vacation home but with a little more style and a whole lot of relaxation. Discover a few new vacation home design ideas and get inspired to upgrade your living space with a hint of vacation all year round.
Bring on the Blues
Nothing screams “vacation home” quite like a large variety of beautiful shades of blue. The multiple shades of blue have a relaxing feel while still being very beachy and fun. Use the hues around your living room or consider a pastel blue couch for a beautiful upgrade.
We love the aesthetics of a lacquered floor, they are shiny which gives them a very modern appeal, while still having a classic vacation home feel. The key is allowing the floor to be the main focus of the room. Doing so brightens the room while keeping your décor to a minimum.
If you have a window nook we recommend taking full advantage of it. A window nook can be used for personal seating, as part of a breakfast nook or even as an additional kitchen space. Incorporate a fun seating and soft chairs to further push a vacation feel to that area of the home.
There’s something very summery and vacation-like about wicker chairs. Not only are they coming back on trend, but they are easy to work with and incorporate in the home. If you are looking to add color you may even want to consider painting your wicker chairs a fun pastel hue.
Comfort over Style
One thing vacation homes are well-known for is comfort. Vacation homes have perfected the idea of comfort with overall style. For that perfect elevated look pair, a comfortable sofa with minimal décor. The sofa will become the statement piece will the rest of the room will remain minimal and cozy.
Lower Pendant Lights
If you have a high ceiling it may seem a bit overwhelming and even impersonal. In order to completely change that look add a pendant light but place it lower than you typically would. Doing so will make the ceiling feel cozier and more welcoming.
Hues of Yellow
Yellow is bright, summery, fun and very vacation-like, which is perfect when you want to give your home a vacation feel. Pair with neutrals or bits of black to create a seamless blend between a bright hue and an everyday aesthetics.
Vacation House Accents
If you don’t want to completely change your décor yet want to have a classic vacation home feel adding beach house accents is the way to go. Add a surfboard, beachy wallpaper, seashells or a mixture of all three. The idea is to have the accents make a statement on their very own.
Take it Outside
When decorating with a vacation vibe do not forget your outdoor space. Whether it’s your porch, a chic balcony or your backyard, creating a welcoming space that offers a bit of “vacation” will allow you to want to step outside more often and enjoy the beauty the great outdoors has to offer.
Patterns are great on their own, but they are even grander when they are paired together. Pair two or three similar patterns with softer colors that already exist in the patterns. Doing so will allow the pattern to be bold yet have softer similar colors to blend with.
