With travel restrictions constantly changing across the globe, many people are being forced to come to terms with the fact that their annual summer break might not be going ahead this year.

Thanks to ever-changing travel corridors and the risk of having to quarantine on your return from your chosen destination, a lot of holidaymakers are choosing to stay at home and spend their cash upgrading their homes instead.

With this in mind, here are a few reasons why buying art offers a good alternative to a summer holiday this year and how it can help take your mind off the disappointment of not being able to sip poolside cocktails at your favourite holiday destination.


1. Improves your interior space

The UK has been going DIY crazy during lockdown, with many homeowners spending their time at home improving décor with new colour schemes and interior design overhauls.

A carefully chosen piece of art can help bring the complete look together in harmony with any chosen colour scheme or theme.

There’s something to suit every budget too, so the money you had put away for a short sunshine break or a luxurious 5-star holiday can be put to good use elsewhere in the form of a piece of art that will adorn your walls for many years to come.

2. A reminder of a previous holiday

What makes art so desirable is that it resonates with the person that chooses to make it their own. If you have a special holiday destination that holds precious memories for you and your family, then you can guarantee that there’s a piece of art that features your favourite place.

From the impressive New York skyline to stunning coastal vistas, there really is something that will evoke memories of holidays past.


3. Start a new hobby

Many people start buying art to simply decorate their homes, but it can soon become a hobby as you being to expand your collection.

If your usual hobby is travel, this year why not start a brand new hobby by beginning your very own travel-inspired art collection? This plays to your interests and gives you something else to enjoy while travel restrictions remain in place.

Many pieces of art also increase in value over the years, so starting a collection of your very own can be a good investment for the future as well as an enjoyable new hobby.
