Guest Post from Design Shuffle

Today I'll be handing over the reigns to Susi from Design Shuffle.  I'm so in need of a vacation and this could not have come at a better time.  Enjoy...
Hi everyone, I’m Susi and I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a great networking sites that promotes interior designers from around the world and their work. August seems to be the month of vacations. Whether you are packing to leave on vacation or just returning or having a staycation this year, rejoining the world post-vacation can be a let down. At least until you start planning for next summer’s vacation. Here are 8 spaces that keep the vacation feeling going at home. Thanks for letting me and Design Shuffle visit J and J Home today. Hope you enjoy!

To recapture the feeling of a favorite vacation, chose a color palette based on a photograph of that spot.

Delight by Design via
Soft summer breezes blowing through white sheer fabric always feels like a vacation. A canopy of white fabric and a few exotic accessories is all it takes to evoke vacation memories.

My Home Ideas via
Whether or not your room has an ocean view, recall the feeling with patterns and natural materials inspired by coastal décor. Love the driftwood lamp, grasscloth covered walls and bamboo shades—all great bedroom design ideas.

White washed woods mixed with the blues and greens of the sea can make any room feel coastal. Casual cottons and vintage inspired stripes and patterns give a nostalgic feeling.

Habitually Chic via
Create the feeling of a hotel pool in your own backyard or deck or balcony with chic outdoor fabrics and umbrellas. Shade, sun and style…all within walking distance from your door.

Seasonal accessories in a clean, crisp white room can transport the space. Beachy stripes and nautical wall art make this dining room feel like it is on the shore or lakeside.
Like a Vacation
Living Agency via
Recreate the feeling of a European hotel in your bathroom or bedroom design. Use magazines and rental agency pictures as inspiration if you don’t have your own photos.
Like a Vacation
Hip Hip Hooray via
Use trinkets and found objects from your vacation to create décor that is decorative and nostalgic. Photographs, taken by you or by a professional, of a favorite destination can also inspire a room to feel more like a vacation and less like home.
