How many times have you returned from an annual family retreat to your 'happy place" -- the Shore, Island, Lake or Mountains -- and wished you could bring back the relaxing environmental vibe you experienced, one which seemed to ooze from the surroundings?

Well, it is tough to move a body of water, beach or mountain peak, but the themes, tones and materials that help make that destination so special can be easily incorporated into your daily digs.

The décor doesn’t always -- or even necessarily -- have to look similar to the place that inspired you. Sometimes, your room may just have a similar feeling or color palette.

As with any decorating challenge, style, quality and comfort are the top considerations, with the purpose of the room and volume of usage it will get key boxes to check when choosing flooring, window coverings, textiles and fabrics, as well as even accessories.

Inspired by the ocean? Calming shades of blue create a comfortable retreat. Even the wave pattern in the carpet adds a sense of calm to the space. Traditional furniture combined with a soft color palette make a room feel elegant but not too stuffy. It’s a perfect place to relax.

And, the vacay-vibe is not restricted to your home's indoors -- remember that savvy decorating can maximize your outdoor living space as well.

Having a backyard oasis can be exciting if you know how to get the most out of your space. Some important 'musts' include:

1. Purchase some nice outdoor furniture. This will create an area for your guests to sit and relax. Although plastic chairs are inexpensive, they are definitely not the most inviting. Purchasing pillows to add with your outdoor furniture will also make the space more appealing.

2. Surround the area with trees, flowers, or even a fence. This is the key to making your backyard seem more private. Adding a barrier between you and your neighbors will give your space a more enclosed feel.

3. Add a fire pit. This is the perfect way to gather everyone around and make the space feel more like home. From roasting marshmallows to telling stories, a nice fireplace with nice seating will have your backyard going from drab to fab in no time.

Now, indoors or out, grab a cool beverage, relax and enjoy the vacation vibes this summer... and all year-round.
