Sophisticated Staycations For Every Type of Professional

Once upon a time, staycations represented the slow end of tourism, a kooky alternative for only the most ardent of explorers. However, with the rise of Air BNB and the unique circumstances that 2020 has thrust upon us, they are the closest thing many of us will get to a summer holiday this season. To help you wade through the options, we’ve identified what each professional should look for in a staycation, as well as our recommendations for bringing the look home.

The Influencer

While they might be new to the holiday-at-home game, influencers are often the savviest staycationers of all, waltzing their way into the hottest hideaways on behalf of their loyal followers. And while many a hotelier goes overboard trying to impress these new arbiters of taste, their prerequisites are simple — great lighting, quirky accessories and a stylish chaise lounge on which to soak up the sun.

If the money-makers of London’s Square Mile are characterised by fast-paced living Monday-Friday, when it comes to a holiday they crave the opposite. Liquid lunches are replaced with leisurely dinners en plein air, followed by the promise of long lay-ins and breakfast in bed. For those who aren’t able to go entirely off-grid, we recommend swapping email newsletters for a weekend copy of the Financial Times. All that’s left is to find a comfy spot in which to catch up.

Artists are the professionals that never have a day off but enjoy the pleasure of a job that doesn’t feel like work. They know that inspiration can strike at any moment — especially while the mind is relaxed — so regular staycations are a must. The purists among them will opt for a  pared-back home in the country, filling the empty space with the glowing sparks of their imagination. Other creatives might crave something a little more stimulating — a quirky urban loft with maximalist walls and floors.

The Writer

Much like the artist, the writer is a reclusive sort, with a beautiful view and stylish desk the only demands they make. Once whatever deadline they have been working on is met, they’ll slump down in an oversized armchair, if only to delve into the familiar escape of a good book.

The Techie

As much as they might try to relax, there are also no days off for the Techie. So whether that means sharpening their table-tennis skills for their return to their start-up or gaming into the small hours, they require getaways that blend connectivity with high design. Brands such as RS Barcelona, Spectral & Pablo have technological adaptation hardwired into every product, working to create exciting, avant-garde living spaces.

The Chef

Open Kitchens

The Chef is the most coveted of staycation partners, the one guest who promises to turn even the drizzliest of days into a night of food and fun. Not known to travel light, they’ll bring their entire stash of knives and spices, so long as the residence in question has a generous dining table and somewhere to stock the beverages. That said, the most devoted culinary chefs need travel nowhere at all, having invested in an outdoor kitchen that allows them to wine and dine alfresco all summer long.
