I recently read this on artist Jeana Sohn's blog and haven't been able to get it out of my head:
I'm completely intrigued by this notion, as it's not exactly espousing (I think) a "vacation at home" or a "staycation", but (again my interpretation) more about a feeling that one's home puts off -- a sense of mellow, calm, a place to refresh, recharge, be inspired.
That is, after all, what a vacation is for right...to be refreshed, regarched, inspired?
This is not so much the vibe my home is putting off of late. Don't get me wrong, I love our home...I do, but it doesn't feel like a vacation. Rather it feels (especially lately, and maybe it's because we're in the thick of getting ready to go on vacation) harried and busy and sometimes even chaotic...yikes.
So one of my goals (while I'm on our actual vacation) is to think of ways to make that vacation feel carry over into our home all the time. Maybe it's a matter of turning off the TV (completely) for a month, eating outside as much as possible, throwing open all the windows, burning incense... Or maybe it's a state of mind. I'm not sure, but I'm going to work on it.
Any ideas?? ;-)
