We all want our home to be a unique representation of who we are and what we love most in life. For those of you struck by wanderlust, these travel-inspired home decorating ideas will have you planning your next adventure in no time!
Make a dramatic statement in your home with a wall-sized vintage world map and let your love of travel really show.
Of course, even if you don’t have the spare wall space for a map, there are plenty of other surfaces in the home that will work – you just need to use your imagination!
Find a neglected or unused corner of your home and give it a travel-theme by adding various travel-related items.
Create a gallery wall of travel destination posters. The ones in the picture above are colourful and fun but you can opt for any style you wish.
Another excellent gallery wall idea is to hang framed maps of the places you’ve been, as well as the places you one day hope to go.
Or, alternatively, you could hang a map of the world on your wall and surround it with favourite pictures taken on your many travels.
Do something a bit different with your travel photos. The ones above have been cleverly arranged to appear as though they’re part of a single, larger piece.
A novel way to pay homage to your passion for travel is to hang time zone wall clocks in your home. Include the time zone of where you live and those of some of your best-loved destinations from around the world.
Vintage globes make for a more understated travel decor option. You can arrange them around your home or in one dedicated area to make a feature of them.
You could also take a couple of those globes and turn them into light shades – the globe pendant lamps above are unique, and a fantastic upcycling solution.
A cubby is an ideal way to organise and show off all those bits and pieces picked up on your travels without making a space look cluttered and untidy.
Give an old drawer you have lying around a new purpose in life by using it to display souvenirs from a particularly memorable trip.
Why not create a collage from the pictures, tickets, postcards, and other items you’ve collected while globetrotting?
If you prefer a more subtle approach to your decor, you can’t go wrong with a simple arrangement of black and white travel photos.
