The trick to creating a holiday atmosphere at your place is not to try too hard.
Simplicity is the key, says Shelley Brockliss, Yellowfox interior designer and seasoned creator of bach-style homes.
It’s a mistake to try too hard and aim for perfection, she says. “Think back to your childhood holidays; it’s what wasn’t perfect that you loved the most. Ask yourself what you loved about your holiday stays at friends’ places or rented baches.”
