EX­OTIC EX­PLO­RATION

Cre­ate a hol­i­day vibe around your home all year long

Solihull News - - PROPERTY & LIVING -

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.”
