Home Makeover:
Staycation Edition

We are all spending more time at home these days, so why not take advantage of this opportunity to create the space you’ve always dreamed of? These easy, affordable ideas can instantly refresh your home without the need to invest in experts or big ticket items.

Bring nature inside

Breathe new life into your home with fresh flowers and greenery. In addition to looking pretty, plants offer a myriad of benefits such as reducing stress and anxiety, purifying the air, and even boosting your mood. Order from one of the many subscription and delivery services available, or take advantage of your daily walk to collect items such as pine cones, wildflowers, rocks and branches to make a pretty centerpiece.

If you’re looking for something extra special to brighten your day, we recommend OnlyRoses. Whether you opt for fresh roses or their signature “Infinite Rose”, these luxurious arrangements will brighten your day.

Mix and match

Create a brand new look and feel without the need for renovations. Some minor upgrades or swaps can make your home and furniture feel fresh. Swap your pillows and throw blankets with ones in seasonal colors, or consider how a new rug can instantly transform a room. Frontgate offers an excellent selection of home goods and accessories, including under $100 decor items. If you’re not looking to make any purchases, think outside the box and swap out or incorporate pieces from different rooms—it can add a whole new flavor to the space.

Treat yourself

Fitness studios and spa visits are being replaced with at-home workouts and meditation apps, so why not design a dedicated space to find your zen? Whether it’s a bathroom, a patio, or simply a corner of the house, create a sanctuary you can retreat to and prioritize your wellbeing. Roll out your yoga mat for a Namaste Wellness class on-demand, take a bath, or tune into a 10-minute meditation from Calm to help you relax and unwind. Reserved members can take advantage of 25% off Rituals bath and body products. With fragrances inspired by the wisdom and ancient traditions of Asian cultures, Rituals products can help you master the art of inner peace.

Make it a family affair

We are all looking for ways to entertain ourselves and our loved ones while at home. Use this time to help your children get savvy about saving and other money management skills with these Personal Finance Activities. Art projects are another great way to keep younger family members busy, while creating something lasting. Set up a makeshift art studio outdoors and get crafty with paints or tie-dye. If your household enjoys some healthy competition, consider turning the garage or TV room into a “Games Room”. Reserved members get 30% off showstoppers like pool tables, ping pong tables, as well as crowd pleasers like dart boards and backgammon sets from Frontgate.

From garden to table

Plant a herb garden in your kitchen or garden for fresh ingredients at your fingertips. You can find several ideas for planters and planter kits online, including some geared toward children. Next time you're making a favorite recipe, reach for some homegrown thyme or oregano to take your cooking to the next level. We also recommend adding dill to fresh caught salmon, which can be delivered straight to your doorstep by Pure Food Fish Market.
