Matching outfits for the fam bam and the pooch too!

Who loves to have matching pjs for the whole family and even your adorable pets? I bet you do, too. I was just browsing those cute prints from LazyOne family pajamas and could not help myself from adding the items to the shopping cart. The loungewear is so pretty, right? They are in fashion since the quarantine took effect.

Our family has been home bound since the government declared quarantine five months ago. My daughter is working from home and is comfortable wearing shirts and pajamas even in daytime. My son, on the other hand, is taking online learning classes twice a week and accepts art commission during his free time. He, too, is comfortable wearing shirts and shorts sets while doing his stuff.

Pajamas are comfortable to wear because they are commonly made of cotton materials and do not feel icky when you perspire.

Checking on their website, LazyOne also carries cute and fun socks. My daughter definitely loves a pair of printed socks. I would be happy to add two more pairs for her and myself to the shopping cart.  

I have got our pooch, a cute bandana as well. Oreo would look good wearing one in his next photo.

We have not tried any of the products from LazyOne just yet but the company touches on some good points, which I think are important before you buy from them.

According to their website, the company only works with factories that have sound environmental policies; the hangers and hang tags they use to display their products are made from recycled or recyclable paper. In addition, the company uses azo-free dyes when coloring or dyeing the fabrics.

It is good to note that pjs and socks are definitely the best gift idea for the coming Christmas season. You do not need to go to the physical shop in order to purchase them. You can all order these items directly from their website. Besides family loungewear sets, they also have something for your house. So, check them out.

With Labor Day and the start of a new school year around the corner, families may be looking for one last summer getaway before the season changes. If you are an owner of a rental summer home, then keeping your home up to date with the latest design trends will keep people renting your property year after year. Whether you’re near the ocean, a lake or a hot spot in the city, these tips can transcend through any property.

When people vacation with friends or family, they don’t want to have the usual struggle for space that they do at home. Keeping the amenities in your rental property feeling luxurious is the key to having people truly enjoy renting your space.

If your house has an open concept, then you are a step ahead in keeping with the latest trends. An open concept floor plan allows for people to do what vacation is intended for, spending time together with their family and friends. Some people may not prefer an open concept floor plan because they may not feel it is private enough. However, a closed concept floor plan can make a property feel smaller than it actually is.

Having a rental property with a lot of bedrooms and bathrooms is ideal for allowing guests to have a lot of their loved ones getaway with them. People like to feel pampered when they are on vacation so bringing a very luxurious feel into those important spaces is significant. The new trends of bathrooms are big and lavish. Making your bathrooms feel like a spa, even if it is a small bathroom, is paramount.

Another new trend is outdoor living space. Instead of seeing a backyard as a space to simply maintain, think of it as an extension of your house and a place to add useful square footage. People love to see outdoor kitchens, living rooms and garden rooms. This adds another space to entertain, say for a Labor Day BBQ, and spend time together.

Lastly, work with what you have when it comes to interior design. Look for inspiration in the area where your property is. There is no need to give a house on the shore a mountain cabin theme. Make your beach house look like a beach house and your place in the city an ultra-modern urban feel.

With these design tips, and any more that you want to share, your summer rental property will be a hit for renters to finish the summer out with.
