After a rainy and colder-than-average spring, it is finally time to let the sunlight in and enjoy the rising temperatures! Whether you love a day at the beach, chilling in a local park, or spend time walking and hiking in the countryside, this is the season of adventures! However, this summer will be different from any other: social-distancing measures are slowly easing, but most holidays abroad are still off-limits. So, here are six simple tips to put into practice to have a lavish staycation!
Change the Bedding
Nothing affects sleep quality like mattress and bedding quality. And, quality is essential to keep stress levels down and make the most of your day. As summer approaches, it is time to gift your skin with lighter bedding that won’t cause you to feel too hot or sweat at night time. Natural fibres which have been minimally dyed – such as natural linen or cotton – are a great alternative to create a sumptuous bed that is also comfortable and healthy.
Breathe New Life Into Your Wardrobe
After over a year indoors, we are all looking forward to wearing our favourite outfits again. This is the perfect time of the year to go through the items in your wardrobe, deciding what to keep and what can be given to charity. Remember – if there is something you have not been wearing for a while, it might be time to give it away!
Get the Garden Ready
In summer, the garden becomes the heart of the house – and this summer, even more so! Your patio or veranda will quickly turn into the area where you’ll receive your friends and family, and your lawn will soon become the location for parties and BBQs. Getting it ready for summer does not take long, especially if you have green fingers. All you will need to do is plant some herbs, flowers, and vegetables, attract wildlife, and add a few plants to create a cosy – yet stylish – atmosphere.
If you don’t enjoy gardening so much, you can still obtain a great effect by mowing the lawn, adding bistro lights, and high-quality patio furniture.
Fill Your Kitchen With Fresh Produce
Nothing makes us think of summers like fresh fruits and vegetables! If you have preferred comfort foods over the past months, now it is time to enjoy juicy, sweet produce from local farmers finally. Filling your kitchen with these goods is a great way to look after your health and fitness while also having fun with new recipes!
Switch the Curtains
The days are still long, and you can still benefit from plenty of hours of sunlight – especially when working from home. Letting the sun through the windows is a great way to create a healthier, brighter atmosphere in your home. And, all you have to do to lighten up your home is switch to bespoke made to measure curtains! Don’t forget to add some mirrors just in front of the windows to maximise the beauty of your room’s unique light signature.
Summer is the perfect moment of the year to embrace a more minimalist lifestyle, declutter, and empty any storage space that you might have been filling over the past years. With a little patience, you can get rid of items that are just taking up space and are stopping you from making the most of your home!
