Has working from home become your new normal? If you’re anything like our team, your day to days consist of lots of emails, texts, and video conference calls. We’ve been spending our free time dreaming of all the amazing places we want to travel to and it sparked an idea, how can we pretend to travel from home? Instead of video calling our coworkers from our own homes, what if we could instead chat with them from a beautiful vacation spot? Enter Zoom conference backgrounds! We created free virtual zoom backgrounds from 6 dreamy destinations using some of your favorite prints from our site.
