I'm heading off to Hawaii next week for a much-needed vacation (brag much, Emily?), but I definitely know what it's like to be stuck at home all summer. This year, bring the vacation to you with some tropical home decor. There are a lot of things you can do to make the most out of not being able to get away in the summer — be it because you have to work, you're going to summer school, or you're broke like the rest of us — and these cute decorating ideas will have you feeling like you went on the greatest tropical getaway of them all, without ever having to leave your couch.
