Travel much? Whether you daydream in your armchair or actually get up and go- the bedroom is a great place for a global look. You don’t want to wake up in a bad theater production, so a light touch is essential, but bringing in maps, artwork, and worldly items are a definite do. When I am fortunate enough to travel, I try to find one or two items that represent that place for me and then I integrate them into my home. My New Orleans Mardi Gras beads are displayed in a glass jar, a beautifully painted sugar skull in bright colors represents a trip to the southwest, and a gorgeous hooked pillow depicting a swimmer from Cape Cod all have starring roles in my space. Embrace global touches and you’ll never feel far from your next trip.
Who doesn’t love an old map of Paris? This map turned wallpaper is so impressive that the bed can be kept simple. Having a fancy bed against the map would be too busy and take away from both. You don’t need a headboard when you have the City of Light to dream under.
This room makes me want to buy a plane ticket. Again, the linens on the bed are kept neutral while the color of the pillows, curtains, and accessories draw you in to the room. The mirrored headboard and the Vishnu print give the room a global feeling without becoming too kitchsy. LOVE.
Morocco is definitely on my list of places to experience and it is also a hot theme in home décor. I love the sexy curves of the headboard and the glamour of the bedside tables. The accessories say casbah without screaming it and bold colors are used sparingly, but effectively. It’s a perfect place to rest your head while dreaming of your next great adventure!
