(Ad/Werbung) I think we will all agree that 2020 will be a special year on so many levels. June is in full swing here and life regains some normality again yet there is no planning or scheduling of summer vacations whatsoever. And maybe it will be tricky to really go somewhere on vacations but then again – remember you have a home that can turn into your favorite travel spot too. The key is finding happiness in your own space and creating your staycation experience – this year more than ever! Together with eBay I embarked on this exact voyage: I am taking you to a balcony staycation retreat with hints of Morocco. Shall we?
Together with eBay I created exactly that – a little staycation oasis on the balcony – perfectly matching the hashtag #ZuhauseImUrlaub which translates to ‘vacations at home’ or simply staycation. If you wonder why eBay: well the answer is pretty obvious. eBay offers a wide range of products, new and vintage, to recreate a travel experience in your own home, on your balcony, or in your garden. Not only will you find literally everything on eBay, but you will also manage to ‘travel on budget’ as many vintage items are much cheaper than new products in regular stores. But I will not bore you with figures and facts, I’d rather show you this example of a balcony staycation – I opted for a contemporary vibe with hints of Morocco. And yes, I found all these items on eBay!
I am a regular hunter on eBay looking mostly for vintage items and plants. Yes plants! You can also buy plants on eBay. For this little project I added a tall Fiddle fig and a Yucca to the balcony. The table is more of a contemporary look but the other details highlight some Moroccan and bohemian vibes such as the beautiful kilim cushion covers, the swinging chair, the baskets and the Moroccan vintage silver lantern. That’s how easy eBay brings your perfect staycation experience right to your home, balcony, or garden. Now tell me, wouldn’t you feel like on vacation on this cute balcony? I certainly do!
I found the following items on eBay for this Moroccan inspired balcony styling:
The hanging chair with hook and spring for hanging, the little metal side table, kilim cushions (similar to these), the Fiddle fig and Yucca palm, woven baskets, the woven pouf, beige seat cushions and the rush mat to cover the balcony railing.
I hope this blog post inspires you to see your home as not only your shelter and safe haven, but also as your potential next travel destination. You are the captain, you decide where you will go to next and eBay is just one click away to help you recreate that travel destination right at home! Happy staycationing!
