While a staycation at home doesn’t beat cruising the isles of Italy, the adrenaline rush from trekking the trails of Peru or excitement from discovering a new shopping spot in Paris, planning for a retreat in your very own home can be just as invigorating. Say goodbye to tricky travel logistics and plan for your next luxury escape in your living space, with a few Louis Vuitton touches.
Here are 5 tips on how to plan for a staycation at home.
CONSIDER WHAT DOES LUXURY MEAN TO YOU
We look forward to different experiences during a vacation. Whether it is eating delicious food, wearing a new outfit, or indulging in small everyday luxuries such as sleeping in or lounging in soft-to-the-touch silk pyjamas, decide which elements can help you create a real vacation feeling.
CREATE YOUR OWN BRAND OF OASIS
Changing up the ambiance and environment of your home is key when planning for a stay-in staycation. Simply playing music, including fresh flowers in your home, enveloping yourself with a cashmere blanket or lighting a candle would not only be a sensorial delight but also evoke a sense of wanderlust, from the comforts of your sofa. The nomadic nature of the Maison is emboldened in its fragrances and perfumed candles. A generous spritz or whiff, is bound to transport you to another place.
Create a vacation corner in your home – be it the balcony, garden or wine bar – and wind down.
STAY HOME, STAY STYLISH
Now that you’ve dressed up your vacation corner, it’s time to put on an outfit that gets you in the spirit. Saunter in easy pieces such as t-shirts, shorts and dresses– perfect for sunny days – or slip on that special piece you have been saving for your next night-out. Effortlessly braid your hair with a silk bandeau and accessorise with a casual cross-body bag or add jewellery to complete your look.
Maximise feel good vibes with minimal effort. Don’t forget to snap a picture for memories!
UNIQUE THEME AND ACTIVITIES
Think of a theme or a list of unique activities. This is your time to discover a new side of yourself.
Get your sweat on, with a simple fitness routine. Turn up the heat in the kitchen or book an in-house chef. Decorate a cheese board or grazing platter that would garner love on your Instagram account. Book a masseuse for that well-deserved rubdown. Dive deep into your favourite TV series or a movie marathon. Indulge in a spot of arts and craft like painting or calligraphy.
Travel to another city or country through the eyes of a fashion photographer in the Fashion Eye series or explore your home country as a tourist with the Louis Vuitton City Guide via charming suggestions of unmissable institutions and secret local spots.
DISCONNECT AND CONNECT
Forget about time. Relax physically and recharge mentally. To enjoy an uninterrupted vacation, switch off possible distractions such as emails and notifications. Disconnect from your everyday and avoid falling into the trap of obligatory housework or running errands on your off days. Stay present and relish in the opportunity to connect and spend quality time with your partner or family.
