The Art of the Escape

Have you ever thought about the beauty of escape? In the Western culture especially, we have associated this word to mean a gorgeous getaway or retreat. Fortunately, when we use the word “escape” we do not usually mean that we need to escape a physical attack (although we may want to escape bad circumstances), but most frequently we mean we just need a break.


We live in a world of demands and many moving pieces. The “grand escape” many dream of involves warm weather, beautiful scenery, delightful food, refreshing drinks, peace and quiet for an extending amount of time. Many times, especially in busy communities, these elements are required for a good escape, but we should not always force ourselves to wait for the opportunity to take off work and actually travel just to experience it.

Do you have a room in your home away from the noise of everyday life? At Bauer International, we believe that furniture and decor can effectively contribute to an environment of escape. Why not create a room in your house that helps you feel like you’re in a different time and place – where you can forget the demands of life and once again remember the joys of life?

In this picture above of a room at Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, observe how the lighting, fresh flowers, and the image of an open sky gives the room such a relaxing feel. You don’t have to decorate in a tropical theme and you do not need a huge space (check out the pictures below of other theme ideas), but it should look and feel different (and better) than what you experience during your typical work day.
