8 Design Ideas for a Travel-themed Room

Every city, every town tells a story through its geography – and its culture. This story unfolds with every step of your journey. Enthralled by your destination, you return home having seen more than you remember, and remembering more than you have seen.

But memories of your travels need not fade like an old photograph. Showcase mementos from your journey. And incorporate travel-themed home decor that captures your love for adventure.

1. Maps

A great alternative to wallpaper, these cartographic designs exhibit cool coastal colors of blue and beige, while the continental patterns create a unique visual texture on the walls. Choose vintage-looking maps: their earth tones exude old world elegance. Take inspiration from the geography of a place as you plot your next adventure with friends and family.

2. Globes

Like maps, globes infuse contemporary spaces with an air of adventure. Conjuring up images of faraway places, these pieces invite you to circumnavigate the world in one spin. Set in a corner and on top of old suitcases, this spherical accent may exhibit imperfections, but the flaws only add to the antiquarian charm of the piece.

3. Postcards

Postcards offer you a glimpse of the traveler’s life on the road. As wall decor, vintage postcards hold both an aesthetic and sentimental value because of the artwork, postage stamps, and scribbled messages on them. Display a set of five in coordinating frames to give your room little snapshots of the world.
