Everyday’s a Vacation, When You've Got a Home Like This

June 7, 2018
BOOKMARK

We know how it feels when a great holiday comes to an end. You’ll miss the relaxed vibes of your holiday villa and the adventures you’ve had, but what if the feeling of being on holiday never has to end? These homes have turned themselves into perpetual holiday abodes, which means that everyday is a vacay!

1. It’s an invasion of the green, that has us green with envy. This apartment cleverly opted for an open concept, which shows off the lush view from the kitchen window to stunning effect. The transition to soft, camel shades in the bedroom conjures images of exotic sand dunes and oases.

2. Turn your home ceiling into a work of art with a contemporary twist. This apartment’s use of chromatic finishes and marbled accents is subtle but bold, working wonderfully with the decorative ceiling to create an opulent-looking home.

3. If you make yearly pilgrimages to Japan, bring a bit of its zen magic back with you by going for a woody, bamboo-infused interior. The elegance of the bamboo is elevated by the soft lights and calming colours, channelling the quiet spirituality of Arashiyama. The shoji-inspired closet doors are no doubt a great way to psych yourself into believing that you are in the Land of the Rising Sun.

4. Ever fancied waking up in a traditional English bed and breakfast? Take a leaf out of the page of this apartment with a mantra that seems to be, go English or go home. Looking quirkily eclectic yet put together, this apartment is chock-full of colours and patterns, with little decorative touches that inject warmth and personality into the living space.

5. Turn your home into a permanent place of leisure by creating lots of inviting spaces that make relaxation inevitable! Take for instance the cosy reading nook by the sunny window, and bright, open living room with a comfy couch that demands to be sprawled on. With a place to rest and relax at every corner, you might never want to leave the house.

6. Another one for the Japanophiles, here’s how you can incorporate a tatami room into your home! This stylish and calming tatami room is perfectly sized for entertaining small groups of guests, who will no doubt appreciate that they can sit comfortably around the table. Adopt the MUJI concept of minimalism by keeping the furnishings to the bare minimum, and you’ve got a winning home right there.

7. As with all things domed that remind us of faraway foreign lands, make a domed ceiling stand out with intricate lightings that cast a warm, golden tone over the living space. This home is a real visual treat with its use of creamy shades of white, and contrasting fabrics that add a touch of comfort.
