The 10 Best Travel Inspired Home Decor Ideas in 2024

The 10 Best Travel Inspired Home Decor Ideas

As new homeowners, we’ve been obsessed with finding new and unique ways to decorate with a travel theme in mind. We finally have a place where we can see ourselves living for several years, so we want to make it a reflection of our personal style — which includes travel-themed artwork, DIY crafts, maps, vintage suitcases, and photos from our trips.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a dreamer with a bucket list of destinations still yet to be explored, what better way to express your love for adventure than through your own home. We’ve gathered some of the best (and extremely unique!) ideas for travel-inspired home decor.

The 10 Best Travel Inspired Home Decor Ideas

1. Vintage Suitcase Trunks

The solution to your storage problem: vintage suitcases. Not only do they add a little charm to any room, but those extra blankets or bulky winter sweaters that take up too much closet space can now be cleverly hidden!

2. Vintage Suitcase Shelves

If you like the idea of suitcases as furnishings but don’t have the floor space, these vintage suitcase shelves are the perfect addition to a rustic-chic decor. We love these because they create room for additional souvenirs we’ve picked up on our travels and they are extremely unique.

We bought all 3 in the set — small, medium, and large — and I can’t wait to put them up after we’re finished painting our walls!

3. Travel-Themed Artwork

Photos and artwork don’t all need to be contained in frames! Travel photography — from beaches to mountains to desert landscapes — can instantly set the tone for a room’s theme. Wall art, throw pillows, shower curtains, and even duvet covers of our travel photos are available on our photography page.

4. Postcard Display

Photo-hanging kits like these can showcase those postcards you’ve picked up in various cities around the world. Postcards are one 0f the easiest keepsakes to bring back from your trips since they’re lightweight and fit in your carry-on, so stop cramming your your luggage full of fragile souvenirs and start a postcard collection you can put on display instead.

5. Vintage Postcards

Short a few postcards, or still waiting to build your collection? Vintage black-and-white postcards add a timeless touch to any home, and can easily be framed or hung using the postcard display mentioned above.

6. Globe Collection

Globes are a classic representation of travel, and maybe the easiest way to decorate your space to show your love of adventure. Model globes are perfect as nightstand or desk toppers, or upgrade to this dual-purpose globe bar — functionality AND design!

7. Vintage Map Canvas

If you want to get a bit more original with your decor, opt for a set of map canvases rather than the standard world map pinned to a cork board.

8. Ticket Stub Shadowbox

A travel-themed shadowbox to drop tickets from things you’ve done and places you’ve been is a great place to keep and display mementos from your trips.

9. World Cities Time Zone Clock

While you can always purchase a fully inclusive timezone clock, I also love the idea of a more personalized (and cheaper) set of individual clocks labeled with city names from around the world. Print and frame labels from London to Tokyo to NYC, or custom order vinyl decals that go directly on the wall.

10. Polaroid Photos From Your Travels

Polaroids are back in style! The best part? Now you don’t have sacrifice quality images for this retro look.

By purchasing polaroid photo paper to use with this instant printer, you’ll have vibrant, unique photos to display however you wish in your home (hanging photo organizers, hooks, and LED string lights are all great options). The printer is simple to use and you can easily print from your smartphone!

We’re in the process of putting together several displays of polaroid photos from our travels, separating each room by continent!
