How Do You Create a Vacation Like Atmosphere in Your Home?


Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to one of the most amazing places in the world, Thailand. And I was fortunate to stay at some of the most incredibly fabulous spa like resorts. Fast forward a few weeks and I'm home looking around at my drab decor thinking, man why can't my place look like those places I stayed at in Thailand.
How do you create a little bit of five-star luxury to your every day life and home?

      Thank you! That is a great idea! I was thinking I'd incorporate the colors in a painting or two. But never thought of drapes. Thank you!

    It is not a 'vacation spot' with out a water feature. There are some great wall fountains you can add or a shallow floor pond feature.

      That is an awesome idea! Yes there is something about the element of water that creates a soothing atmosphere.

    Beautiful! I love having good coffee and tea around, because a special hot drink in the AM is one of my favorite things about vacation :) Also, my husband takes some really nice photos from all over, and we hang those up to have a slice of wherever we've been. One thing that I'd really like to do when the weather is nicer is to put up a hammock!
