Need a getaway? Create one in your own home

Everyone needs to get away every once in a while but vacations can also be stressful. Sometimes you just wish you get have a getaway without actually having to go anywhere. Well, perhaps you can. Here are some getaway looks you can achieve with your next interior decorating project. You can deck out your entire home, just your master bedroom, or a guest room or family room, it’s up to you.

The Caribbean

Who wouldn’t love the feel of the Caribbean in their own home? Easy, breezy, and fresh is the name of the game with this look and there are several things you can do to achieve such an atmosphere. Use cream-colored linens for the upholstery and window treatments; this is the primary color for the space. For contrast, have some bright accessories that are azure or coral. Stone flooring is a nice touch if there’s room in the budget. Go with a sea-grass rug, hurricane lanterns, and limed-oak furniture if you want to add to the theme. Avoid clichés like seashells, fish nets, and captain’s wheels.

Greece

If you want to go for a Greek aesthetic, you’ve got to have white, and lots of it. Have white walls and polished concrete floors. Choose furniture that contrasts white with walnut and choose accessories that are marble or brass. Accent colors such as turquoise or navy work well if used sparingly such as with throws, rugs, or pillows.

African Safari

This look isn’t for the meek. African décor is all about bold colors and stylistic choices. You’ll want to pair earthy tones with metallic and create contrast with textures by alternating between rough, natural textures and smooth ones. Use drum tables and other African-inspired furnishings and accessories. Avoid animal print as it just looks clichéd. A bold black and white diamond pattern is always a good choice for this look.

English country house

If you want to feel like you’re vacation in the English countryside, you can go with the country house look. To achieve this, mix more traditional materials such as tweeds and linens with unexpected uses of colors. For color, stick with organic colors that match what you’d see in nature such as greens, browns, and grays. Have plenty of flowers (real ones!) incorporated into the space. Natural materials like wool are inherently calm and are always a good choice. You can use some agricultural vintage pieces like a milking can as an accessory but remember less is more and you don’t want the space to come across as a cliché.

Southern France

Southern France is where you go to relax and just enjoy the rustic beauty of the area. If you want to go with this look, the interior will need to reflect that laid-back feel. Use plenty of linens in muted grays and creams. Texture is very important for this look so go with smooth, stone floors and contrast that with a driftwood coffee or end table.
