Change of scenery opener

change of scenery

There are numerous reasons why people travel. The lockdown has probably made many want a change of scenery - Time in nature or just see something new. From some trips you come back full of ideas for your own four walls.

Inspired by accommodations with a special interior charm

We have never spent so much time at home as since the pandemic. After the office moved into the home and the situation was accepted, it was cleared out, redesigned and repaired. The Americans call this “home improvement”. Why this has happened in so many households is probably because the corona lockdown leaves us a lot of time to think and there is no longer any annoying reason to postpone annoying everyday little things.

Perhaps the one or the other Zoom meeting that allowed a view into other people's homes led to questioning one's own apartment lifestyle: Do I really want to live the way I do now? What does my furnishing style say about me? Which furniture or belongings do I hardly use?

Next step: rearrange, redesign.

All well and good, but the desire to travel does not dissipate it. Fortunately, if more and more relaxation is allowed soon, we'll be able to grab a backpack and travel bag again and go on tour. Hotel websites can already be visited and trips booked.

An important clue for the booking decision is the interior and the history surrounding the accommodation. When traveling you can be on time and very consciously for a different furnishing style decide, get to know new materials and colors and meet people who have exciting stories to tell.

Living differently for once brings a breath of fresh air, new thoughts and inspiration. Who knows, maybe you like the cozy reading corner, the comfortable couch or the practical cupboard system so much that you want to build something similar at home. Then the holiday moves in at home, with fond memories of a good, relaxed time.
