1. BUILD A BEACH Recreate that blissful, stressless beach feeling at home with a beach chair, cold tropical drinks and some shade. Go all in with sand under your feet and a spray bottle for that misty waterfront breeze. No sharks, no crabs, no crowds. Just pure relaxation.

2. EXPLORE YOUR EVERYDAY That street you pass but never go down? Take it! Pack what you need for the day, load up your bicycle and see your hometown like a tourist. When you need a break, you can dine at your own curbside cafe. (That bicycle and trailer? They’re coming in August!)

3. SLEEP UNDER STARS Spend a peaceful night in the great outdoors—even in your courtyard or backyard. Soften up side-by-side sun loungers with pillows and textiles for a cosy bed. Then string up a tent. We used LILL curtains because the netting helps keep bugs away. Can’t see stars? Add your own!
