Nesting 101: Is Your Home A Haven?

Planning a weekend at home filled with Netflix and Instagram? You’re right on-trend! The latest craze – “nesting” – involves clearing your social calendar and focusing on self-care, especially if staying at home means creating a soothing home sanctuary. Just ask the folks scouring gorgeous rooms on Pinterest. Why is staying in the new going out? A few possible reasons: There’s little urge to go out when we have countless ways to get food and entertainment (traditional weekend activities) right at our fingertips. Socializing no longer demands an outing; it can easily be done via social media platforms. In our fast-paced world, we all need a refuge and a retreat from the hustle and bustle. And staying in may feel safer than venturing out into a world filled with uncertainty. Another possibility is that it’s a chicken-and-egg situation: Looking at all the stunning living spaces on social media is making us want to redecorate our rooms. Whatever the reason, allowing yourself some nights off, in the comfort of your own nest, is an excellent way to relax and recharge.
