Staycation Luxury Suite

August 15th, 2008

I was amused to read a blog entry about how one can evoke the charms of travel while staying at home—that being to redecorate the bedroom as a luxury hotel room–lovely linens, fluffy pillows (coffee-maker?!)–I’m sure you can imagine.

As you imagine whether this is just plain silly or whether this is, in fact, truly do-able, I will draw your attention to some Steenbock titles that may just inspire you.
