Style your holiday home for summer

07 Dec, 2022

Time to Relax

We’re looking forward to a classic kiwi summer of unwinding at the bach, exploring on the boat, family camping holidays or sunny staycations at home. Summer means swimming in the sea, enjoying beach days with friends, sailing around our beautiful coastline and basking in the warm sunshine.

If you’re lucky enough to call a bach or boat your holiday home – set up your spaces with the essentials for relaxing and entertaining family and friends. Discover our styling tips for setting up your holiday home or transforming your every day home into your favourite vacation spot.

Step 1: The Essentials

Prepare your holiday home in time for summer with basic provisions, so you can decide on a whim to head away for the weekend. As well as essential pantry items, supplies for the drinks cabinet, spare sun-hats and jandals – set up your kitchen and bathrooms ready for spur of the moment visits and visitors. Stock up on hand & body wash, plenty of hand towels, face cloths and soft bath towels. Have thoughtful touches of fragrant candles or diffusers ready to use, plus a stack of plush beach towels to welcome guests.


Step 2: Kitchen Prep

Summer on holiday brings evenings spent barbequing, feasts of freshly caught seafood and nights of team work to wash and dry dishes by hand. Ensure your kitchen, fillet station and dish washers are stocked with enough linens for everyone to lend a helping hand. By doing so, you’ll avoid using the same dish towel to both prepare dinner and fillet the day’s haul. Choose an apron with a beachy, holiday design for wearing while preparing meals to add a little fun to your kitchen.


Step 3: Make Comfy Spaces

Layer comfortable cushions and throws throughout your home or holiday home to make sure everyone is comfy, warm and relaxed. Choose beautiful cushions to sink into and throws to wrap up in that will be loved and used for many summers to come. Perfect for long evenings spent playing cards, enjoying sundowners on the beach late into the night, for alfresco dining and for making comfy spots on the lawn when an impromptu crowd gathers.


Step 4: Ready for Bed

Refresh your holiday home linen cupboard with beautiful, comfy and easy to use bedding perfect for every season. Set up bedrooms with crisp cotton sheets, organic cotton duvet inners, quilts and spare blankets to allow your guests to adjust layers to suit the weather. Keep a stack of spare quilts and pillows at the ready for last minute sofa sleep over guests or friends pitching their tent in the back garden.


Step 5: Considered Holiday Styling

Create a holiday feeling at home or at the bach with bedding that invites slow starts, early bedtimes and summer siestas. Help your guests (and yourself) slip into a relaxed state of mind with beds styled in designs inspired by nature made from restful, natural fabrics. Choose duvet cover styles and collectible quilts in unique patterns which celebrate the height of summer. You’ll turn to these beautiful pieces every summer for easy style for years to come.


Step 6: Beautify Your Bunks

Bunk beds are a holiday home essential for hosting a crowd – ideal for extended family, the kids mates or last minute sleep overs. Add a little holiday fun and flair to your bunk beds ready for guests with our range of smaller sized bed linen perfect for bunks. Discover sheets, duvet sets, quilts and throws made from natural fabrics in beautiful designs for enduring style.
