How to design your interior through your travels

Whether it be the blue’s and the white’s of the Greek Islands or British Colonial Style furniture, travelling is an influential way to find inspiration. Getting immersed in someone else’s art, culture, food, textiles and seeing the way they live their daily lives can help us think from different perspectives and think outside the box. They all find their way back home with us and we wish we could keep those memories alive forever.

Travel inspired interior design is a new trend in the world of home decor. You might be inspired by particular cities, landmarks, markets, hotels or even the colours and patterns and would like to recreate that in your own space. Whether you’re a traveller or want to pay homage to your favourite vacation spot, here are some popular trends to inspire you!

POPS OF COLOUR AND PATTERN

When it comes to colour, you don’t need to redesign your entire house to represent it. Colour can be showcased not just through the walls, but also through accessories such as vases, ornaments, souvenirs, cushions, artworks and much more. It can give your house the essence of that place – no matter where you are in the world. One of the most popular places that people like to recreate is Greece. Greek-styled interiors are simple and elegant. The blue and white colours work perfectly with each other, providing a sharp and effective contrast.

Textiles are an important element of interior decor and can have a big impact on a space. When you travel overseas, you’ll be amazed at how many beautiful designs you will come across. Patterned fabrics are a perfect way to represent your favourite place – whether it be through rugs, curtains or sheets. Fabrics are the heart of Moroccan culture, and they look absolutely beautiful when showcased in a living room or bedroom. The rich and lively colours and patterns evoke the wonder and sensuality that lies behind this place.

BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN INTERIOR AND FASHION

From floor to ceiling, Italian styled interior is luxurious. Modern Italian homes may be minimalistic, but they go all out by paying attention to detail through the luxurious elements that they use – even through fashion. The concept of merging fashion and interior together is popular in Italy. Expressing your personal style into your interior in order to create a unique and individual look is a great way to spruce up your home decor.

FOR TRANQUILITY AND CALM

Asia’s interior design is known for its elegance and sophistication – which generally focuses around Feng Shui to create the perfect balance of the elements. As most of us are always on the go and live a fast-paced life, it would be a dream to come home to a peaceful abode and have a sense of serenity. Asian interiors are inspired by nature, scenic landscapes and neutral colours. Sound and aroma also play a crucial part in achieving this sense of serenity – mainly sandalwood incense. With good planning and consideration, you can achieve your own tranquil place.
