15 Travel interior design ideas to satisfy your wanderlust!

I make no secret of my love for travel. I love to collect the stamps in my passport and to decorate my house with travel attributes. My walls are decorated with old maps and I have a scratch map. Furthermore, I have collected lot of other small travel attributes and souvenirs. In this article, you can find some travel interior design ideas to satisfy your wanderlust!

1. Remind yourself about all the land you have yet to discover

Get a massive world map or an amazing travel-related wall sticker of the world to remind you of all the land you have yet to discover.

2. Dream about traveling

Let the world nest your dreams. Dream about tropical islands with palm trees or other beautiful landscapes with these travel pillows and bed covers.

3. Use an old suitcase as a cabinet

An old suitcase can be the ideal luggage to store something. You can use it as a bedside table, coffee table, cabinet or just as decoration.

4. Scratch it!

Scratch off every country you have visited with an interactive travel map. It will definitely inspire you to travel more, so you can scratch more!

5. Use old maps

Old maps are perfect to decorate many things. Think about walls, doors, lamps, books, chairs or tea light holders. It is all possible!

6. Never miss the sand of the beach again

You do not have to miss the feeling of sand between your toes any longer with this little sandbox in your house or garden.

7. It is always time to travel

Decorate your room with different clocks representing the times of important cities all over the world or use a travel-related clock. It immediately gives you the travel spirit.

8. Wake up every morning in your dream destination

Turn your headboard into the ideal scenic view to wake up to every morning.

9. Get a tropical atmosphere

Buy an old surfboard and decorate your house with it. In my opinion it looks awesome!

10. Create a butterfly bucket list

Display your bucket list as art! Write a goal on each butterfly, tack it on the wall and put it in a jar when completed! It looks amazing and will inspire you to travel more.

11. A globe always looks good

Almost everyone has a globe in his or her house. A globe is an ideal and cheap travel interior attribute to decorate your home in a travel atmosphere.

12. Relax in a beanbag

I am sure you can relax as much in a beanbag as in a hammock. A beanbag reminds me of watching the sunset at the beach or listening to good music at festivals. Therefore, it gives me the feeling of freedom and traveling.

13. Relax in a hammock

Hang a hammock (chair) somewhere in your house or garden. A hammock always reminds me of a nice summer day or tropical destination.

14. Take a wanderlust shower

You can dream about traveling in your bedroom, but also in your bathroom! Buy this travel-related shower curtain and never stop dreaming about all the places you still want to visit during your shower. Suddenly your showers will take longer!

15. Travel tray

Use vintage maps or an old dictionary to make a travel tray. Now you can serve drinks and food to your guests and show them immediately your love for travel.
