Creating Your Own Seaside Getaway....At Home
Ways To Create A Relaxing Ocean Retreat Of Your Own
To begin, you will need to find a quiet corner in your home. A porch, a bedroom, or even a bathroom will do just fine. Incorporate as much blue and white as possible. These cool colors promote a relaxed atmosphere and a sense of calm. Fill the air with scents that are reminiscent of the sea - such as the Sea Harbor Tart from Yankee Candle [seen in picture 1 below] or Air Wick Aqua Mist Air Refresher in Fresh Water Scent. These scents will bring a touch of the sea to your space.
Surround yourself with paintings of the sea, white seashells, ocean-inspired soaps - such as Crabtree & Evelyn's Nantucket Soap [seen in picture 2 below] or Cape Shore's Coastal Breeze Soap [seen in picture 3 below], lighthouse decor, or seagull ornaments. Fluffy white towels are a great addition to your at-home seaside spa retreat.
Even if you live miles away from the sea, you can still enjoy the soothing sounds of the waves and the feeling of a seaside vacation by listening to CD's - such as Solitudes "Seaside Solo Piano" or Reflections Of Nature "Rest & Relaxation". We highly recommend these CD's, as they are among our favorites. They are a combination of natural ocean sounds and peaceful music that will lull you into a state of relaxed bliss and instantly transport you to that beautiful beach of your dreams.
It only takes a few minutes to create a seaside getaway in your home using ordinary everyday items. Rest. Relax. Enjoy.
