Create a holiday vibe around your home all year long
Holidays may be just a memory but take inspiration from your favourite destination for your decor and you’ll enjoy that vacation vibe all year round.
“Destination decor is on the rise as homeowners seek to evoke far- flung styles that last well beyond their travels,” says Samantha Parish, interior design account manager at bed specialists Hypnos.
“What we see and experience on our holidays has an increasing influence on our homes. Few of us can resist a souvenir from our favourite or most interesting destination – choose well and it can be the inspiration for a whole new look, or simply add an instant international feel to a space.
“Soft furnishings such as bedding, rugs, curtains and throws can also change the dynamic of your interior, transforming it into anything from an Asiatic- inspired retreat to a Mediterranean getaway.”
