QUICK TIP TUESDAY'S
July is finally here and now is the time to squeeze in those family vacations before
the dreaded process of Back to School planning begins.
Your vacation home should be a warm
and cozy place you long to return to.
However most families neglect to decorate
or furnish their vacation homes with the style
or warmth, of their everyday home.
Vacations are for escaping and dreaming. Your vacation home should be even that
and more to you.
Periodically update your furnishing and accessories to include memories and
favorite colors that make your own home
feel comfortable. No one wants to escape to
a cabin or vacation home, that screams maintenance or lacks the charm and warmth,
to make you feel as if you never want to leave.
Add small touches like higher end decor
pieces mixed in with bargain or flea market items. Candles, throws, favorite books, sea shells collected, all add to the memories and
the comfort of a family vacation home.
Update with fresh pillows, linens or comforters, and even a coat of fresh paint for the family dining area, kitchen, or bedroom. Make it a family painting project for brothers, sisters, in laws and kids, to help makeover the favorite room in the house and each contribute a special current object to mark the year you all were together and help contributed to making it that special place that everyone looks forward to spending time in, year after year.
