The “Stay-Cation” How to Relax at Home!

My life is scattered and busy. I think of my home as a resort. When I step through the door, I feel relaxed. I almost feel like I’ve taken a vacation.

    Our Tips

    The best accent colours to use in a family room or kids play area are: bright yellows, oranges, or blues. Complement them with tan coloured leathers, rustic woods, and metals.

  • After a long, cold, and snowy winter, March is a time when many of us plan that vacation and escape to a sunny destination.  Vacations and family time is about socializing, being entertained, being creative, relaxing, and having fun.  If a destination vacation is not in the plans this year, then perhaps consider a “stay-cation”.

    Just like an ‘away’ vacation, the more you plan for fun, the more successful your stay-cation is likely to be.  This is the perfect time to spruce up your family room or turn an unused space into a modern hang out everyone wants to spend time in.

    Here are some of the most popular elements in an inviting family room:

    • A large and comfortable sofa or sectional
    • Extra chairs, ottomans, or beanbags
    • Lots of colourful throw pillows
    • A rug for lounging
    • A big screen TV
    • A surround sound system to create a mini-theater experience
    • Video games, board games, or other entertainment
    • A billiards table, dart board, or other favorite lounge games
    • A small bar area or a spot for refreshments
    • A play area for kids showcasing a space with a desk or table for their favorite toys, games, crafts, and more.

    Sometimes all your space needs are some creative design ideas and a breath of fresh air. Call House Coach today and we will transform your house into a perfectly dreamy vacation home.
