For more than a decade, ever since taking my first overseas trip, I have been obsessed with all things travel. I not only love being on an adventure, but also the planning phase, booking phase, and post-travel reminiscing that inevitably ensues after a grand adventure. Having lived out of a suitcase for a year, I decided this year that I would stop in between trips every few weeks or few months, and call some place home. But I also want my home to feel inspiring and reflect what I love – to travel – so I’ve been sourcing far and wide the best Travel Home Decor I can find to inspire my ongoing wanderlust. Here are my favourites so far…
Around the World Scents from Glasshouse Fragrances
What better way to reminisce on your favourite adventures than to fill your house or apartment with the scent of that place!? I love the sugary tones of “Coney Island”, but my favourite of the collection is “Tahaa”, a vanilla caramel scent reflecting French Polynesia. Bliss! See more at Glasshouse Fragrances.
City Maps from Mapiful
I’m a sucker for a visually aesthetic map, but I do tend to follow a “minimal colour” rule in my interior decorating, so I’ve found the solution in Mapiful city maps – simple, understated, elegant city maps for $60 with free worldwide shipping (I’m placing my order as we speak).
Word Prints from Emma Kate Co
The delightful Emma Kate (who is also a weekly contributor to WOW!) has some fantastic worldly inspiration in her collection of homemade prints. Being an adventurer herself, her work is heavily inspired by her globetrotting escapades and she in turn inspires me (and many others) in her short one-liners.
Travel Coffee Table Books
I recently shared my current favourite “travel coffee table books“, but the list is truly endless. Just this week I found another great book to add to the collection, Paris: An inspiring tour of the cities’ heart.
Photo Clipper from Urban Outfitters
If you love collecting moments not things, this is the perfect little every day reminder of your adventures and escapades around the world, to the shop, or in your backyard. For just $10 you can pick up one these photo clippers from Urban Outfitters. You’ll also need an Instax Mini to capture those moments in real time!
Map Cushions via Etsy
The little homely touches are the ones that count! (Slightly) breaking my all-white-errythang rule for home interiors, I love this little adventure cushion found on Etsy.
Adventure Mugs by Urban Outfitters
What better way to start your day than a morning cup of coffee and some inspiration for adventures! For just $14, they’re a pretty good buy! Shop travel mugs at Urban Outfitters.
Wild & Free Wall Art by Urban Outfitters
And finally, what more inspiration could you need than a two word reminder. No matter where you are in the world, even at home, never forget those two words: WILD and FREE.
