How To Style a Holiday Home

Holiday homes can be anything from a beachside shack to an inner city pad – they’re the things dreams are made of.  But whatever you go for it’s important to get the styling right. Shaynna Blaze shares her expert advice!

No one goes on holiday to be uptight so a retreat needs to be relaxing.

1) Avoid clutter and keep colour tones simple.

2) I really like to let the colours and textures around the property influence the interior.

3) Here I've used roller blinds in ‘polish’ – the colour, and textured weave, reflects the environment around this home.

4) These fuss free window blinds are great for small houses. When they roll up they’re sleek and  streamlined.

5) The location of your holiday home can really influence the look and feel of the property.
- If it’s tropical go for blues, greens and whites.
- For a more of a mountain location incorporate earthy tones and warm shades. 
- The sand stone around this fireplace echoes the country location, and rugs are great for giving that warm homey feel.

7) Storage is vital in any home but in a holiday home packing away those toys and towels is essential.
- There are some great flat pack storage options on the market today – like this wardrobe.
- And the great thing about flat pack is its easy to replace if you change you mind about style

8) Flooring is also an area where you need to pay particular attention – something hard wearing but serviceable and easy to clean would be my choice.
- This honey ash vinyl plank stretches from kitchen and living areas to the bedrooms.
- It’s practical and using one flooring thought gives it a sense of flow.

Whatever style you choose for your holiday home try to create a relaxing  environment  so you can sit back and enjoy!
