I love to decorate for my family in a way that comforts and inspires. The rule of thumb in my home decorating has always been that it has to invoke a memory, or represent something very personal to this family in order to sit on a wall or shelf in our home. One thing that is my absolute favorite thing to do, above anything else, is to travel. Throughout my life I have collected little trinkets and souvenirs from my travels around the world. Most are prominently displayed to remind us of certain trips or memories. I wanted to create a whole room dedicated to my favorite pastime, travel, and I kind of love how it turned out.
|My vintage globes and books add a little interest to the room.|
|I pulled decor from around my house that was better suited in this room, like this old trunk I've had for years.|
This room is one of the happiest and most colorful rooms I've ever decorated. Every person who comes into the house has to stop and take it in for a minute with their jaw wide open. I love that! I love that my quirky design makes an impact and statement. It is where the family tends to gather now because it's a warm and memory inducing room. As a mom, that makes my heart full and gives me plenty of inspiration to plan our next adventures together.
