Create the perfect holiday leave in your own home

by Charles Carter on
You don't need to travel miles or skydive to reclassify and feel special. Resting at home allows us to enjoy our place in a new way. Finally, you can have those magical walks to the nearby forests and parks that you have wanted to do for so long but never actually had the time to due to our busy and fast lives. There is a time for everything and that time is now! It’s time for the garden or balcony to also finally get the care and attention it deserves. Enjoy the warmth and cosiness of your own home and spend some time in your gardens or chilling on your balcony! We've prepared some helpful tips that are sure to help you create the feeling of summer and get you in the summer holiday vibe in your own homes.
Round the world trip home
Each holiday destination has its own local specialties and delicacies. Whether it's the feeling of the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, by recreating local and national dishes, we can experience and ignite holiday emotions in our homes. Specialty dishes, cutlery, local music, a themed table and maybe a fine wine – before you know it, your favourite holiday destination and your home will have a lot in common. You can feel like you’ve gone on your favourite holiday and experience all the best moments from a trip you have had in your own home with friends, family and loved ones.
If you feel like visiting Italy, but you're still at home, load a CD of Italian music. Go shopping and buy a red plaid tablecloth and white towels. Stock up on products typical of Italy, add Parmesan cheese, pasta, basil, red wine to the shopping cart... At home, let loose and feel the Italian spirit.
 
And what's a relaxing at home without ice cream? Have fun with your favourite flavours and experiment at home. The task is quick and easy, and the whole family can get involved. Mix your favourite fruits with natural yogurt. Yogurt with a higher fat content is best for making the mixture nice and creamy and the flavour richer. If you are a lover of sweet temptations, add sugar to the mixture, which will guarantee you an even softer and sweeter consistency!
Stir the mixture from time to time while it freezes to achieve the perfect and festive result. In about two hours you will have a wonderful homemade ice cream, and garnished with exotic fruits.
Another tip: if you want your ice cream to be ready faster, use frozen fruit. Allow the fruit to thaw slightly, add the yogurt and then puree everything. Defrosting is important to avoid overloading the blender or mixer. When the ice cream is finally served, garnish with fresh fruit and let your summer imagination run wild                                                            to the max.                                                                                                                 
Smell
Many foods not only taste good, but also smell delicious. Citrus fruits and herbs contain so-called essential oils. The aroma of these oils alone can have a significant impact on our well-being. For example, citrus oils are thought to have a mood-enhancing effect. Lavender, on the other hand, promotes relaxation, while peppermint is invigorating and refreshing. When choosing fragrance oils, make sure they are made from 100% pure essential oil and are organically grown.
Get yourself a diffuser of your choice to let the aroma run through the whole house. Add some water and a few droplets of your favourite essential oil and in no time you will feel as relaxed as ever.
Pleasant aroma experiences can also be brought to the balcony, the terrace or even the kitchen. The pleasant aroma of sea, sage, tarragon, thyme, rosemary or mint is guaranteed to put you in a festive mood and help you relax. You can also sprinkle the rest of the cocktails with orange or lemon peel and enjoy their effect. Fresh strawberries also have a strong aroma and bring summer home.
Stay in your bathrobe all-day
The best part about creating a holiday and summer vibe in your own home is that you can wear whatever you want... all day! Why not wear your best dressing gown and indulge in luxury and comfort from noon to eve.
Dispense with the guilt and invite chic comfort into your closet with a bathrobe suave enough to stay in all day. Yes, we’re deadly serious. When your dressing gown is as debonair as a Bown of London robe you really can stay in it all day long. One of Bown HQ’s team even wore her velour robe as an overcoat to shop on a London high street.
