Get the best of both worlds with travel-inspired interiors
Nothing sparks creativity quite like international travel. So why not transport yourself to distant shores and draw some home-styling inspiration from overseas?
If you’re looking to create something that is truly unique to you, look to somewhere that holds a special place in your heart and conjures up happy holiday memories. Or if it’s a new experience you’re craving, why not lose yourself in your imagination and explore design from the farthest-flung corners of the earth.
How to Decorate a Travel-Themed Space
The first step is to choose an overriding theme to give you focus. Think about what you want to feel when you walk into a room. Do you want to feel relaxed and a million miles away from the stresses and strains of daily life? Or are you looking for something more stimulating and thought-provoking?
If you’re not sure where to start, a mood-board will allow you to experiment with different colour schemes and ideas. You could use holiday photographs, images from travel articles and Instagram or Pinterest for inspiration. And paint and fabric swatches will help you bring all your ideas together.
Styles from Overseas
The hardest part will be choosing which destination to bring to life! There are so many beautiful places around the globe, we’ve outlined a few of our favourites to help get you started.
A timeless and classic look, blending soft colour schemes and exquisite fabrics with feminine contours and rustic accessories. From romantic dining spaces to boutique bedrooms, this look is one of effortless sophistication and exudes a certain je ne sais quois.
Whether it’s the warm sand beneath your feet, blissful blue waters and tropical rainforests that make your soul shine. Or maybe it’s the bright lights of Bangkok that make you feel alive. The Thai look is characterised by the contrast of soothing, natural colours with bright hues and deep, rich fabrics. It offers the perfect combination of fun and relaxation.
Nordic by Nature
If you see beauty in simplicity, a more minimalist look might be for you. Famed for its clean lines, light spaces and an appreciation of nature, the trick with a Nordic aesthetic is to find a crisp, cosy and calming balance.
