If you love to travel but can't find the time or money for your next vacation, bring the world to you!
To satisfy your wanderlust, homewares retailer TheHome.com.au’s senior stylist Marjorie Silva recommends incorporating travels into your home with the globetrotter style.
“This look is all about bringing together inspirations from your travels from all over the world to create a room that feels meaningful to you and will evoke wonderful memories,” she says.
Here, she shares her top tips on creating the globetrotter interior style in your room:
Props with meaning
Put items on display that mean something to you and your family – mementos and trinkets from your recent travels. Group objects by colour, region, material or some other linking factor. Varying sizes for display is the key to get the eclectic look – try the taller objects at the back and gradually decrease its sizes towards the front.
Infusing your room with a rich, deep colour is one of the easiest yet most powerful ways to add an exotic vibe to any room. “Don't be afraid of a bold wall colour, it can have a big impact for very little money,” Marjorie recommends.
Adding prints and patterns to your space will help evoke the globetrotter style. Go for scatter cushions with exotic or geometric patterns, bold pieces of art or a rug with dramatic print – for extra effect, consider hanging the rug on your wall!
Plenty of natural materials – such as jute rugs or woven baskets – will help to create a nomadic sense to your space. Don’t forget to add green plants, to really breathe life into the space.
