With these interior design ideas, your home can feel like a vacation. If you're like me, the only place you want to be this Summer is somewhere like this image above. Greece, maybe? Italy, Portugal...? Well, if you can't take the vacation you want, why not bring it home? There's a few things you can do to your home design that will make it feel fresh and relaxing. Here are some ideas: Plants will help your home feel like an oasis. Plants Plants are the number one way to make your home feel more relaxing and part of nature. Which is what vacation is all about, right? Depending how many indoor trees and plants you add, your home can feel like an oasis.  Just make sure you're reading up on the plants you purchase and not only buying for indoors, but also taking into consideration any pets you might have. (Some plants are not good to have around cats and dogs.) The color palette you choose can change the look of your home. Blue + White Scheme The color palette you choose can make a huge impact on the way a room feels. This bedroom above looks soothing and relaxing, mostly because of the blue and white color scheme.  Blue draws an immediate correlation to the ocean and white is symbolic of light and sun. The two combined can make your bedroom feel like a hotel suite in Greece. Keep the room cool and even more relaxing with  white ceiling fans and lots of open windows. Wood accents provide an organic aesthetic. Wood Accents Since vacation destinations are often somewhere on the beach and away from urban cities, the closer your home feels to nature, the more it will feel like you're on vacation. Another idea is to add texture, like a wooden ladder to your bathroom, or lots of baskets can help with the organic aesthetic. Modern outdoor space with white furniture. White Furnishings I'll say it again, white is always a good choice. It's bright, clean and adds light to any space. White furnishings will help your home feel closer to nature, and ultimately like you're on a vacation. If you don't have plans for a vacation this summer, these interior design ideas can at least make you feel like you got to take one.
