 Five ways to enjoy a #HolidayAtHome

        • 1. Transform your bedroom into a hotel room

          One of the best things about going away is walking into your hotel room, why not be inspired by some of the key points that make hotels so great and bring these into your own home? Start by refreshing your flooring with a thick, deep pile carpet or why not choose a modern alternative by opting for a contemporary vinyl-tile floor. One of the most important things in a hotel room is the bed, and the way you dress it can have a major impact. Spoil yourself with high thread count sheets, add a sumptuous bedspread and accessorise with as many cushions as you want. Next, look at those little luxuries that can make such a difference – blackout blinds or curtains, add a bouquet of fresh flowers to your room and place lamps on your bedside tables.

      • 2. Enjoy an al-fresco dinner

        Tucking into a delicious meal and glass of wine on a restaurant’s terrace is another great thing about going on holiday. However, you can easily enjoy this at home and discover how al-fresco dining in your own garden can be just as great. Why not set up a table outside with tea lights in mason jars to set the mood, or do away with the table and dig out the picnic mat to enjoy your feast. From a traditional BBQ to tempting tapas, cook whatever you fancy and enjoy it under the stars for a twist on the usual tea time routine. Table setting with wine

    • 3. Treat yourself to a spa-day

      Who doesn’t love a pamper session? Spas are the perfect way to massage away all of the stresses of day-to-day life, but if your budget doesn’t stretch that far you can still enjoy a luxurious spa-experience at home. Treat yourself to a fluffy robe and slippers, before lighting scented candles and running a bath. Pour in your favourite bubble bath and put a face mask on before sinking into the tub. For an extra touch of luxury why not add flower petals to your bath tub?

  • 4. Make a holiday playlist

    Music is great for bringing back memories and there are certain songs that just scream summertime. Why not create a playlist of your favourite tunes, or select some chilled-out tracks that would be perfect for lazing around to. Why not ask your friends or family to join in and prepare their own playlists too? You might even want to prepare a separate playlist for your al-fresco dinner, and a selection of suitable spa-songs to make your experience even more luxurious.

  • 5. Get your head stuck in a book​

    Holidays are a great time to read those books that have been gathering dust on your bookshelf since you bought them at Christmas. Whether it’s a trashy chick-lit or the latest award-winner, why not put on your chilled out playlist, cosy up in your luxurious bed and become engrossed in your page-turner. Take time to enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures! Couple reading on sofa
