This week we’re looking at interiors with a travel theme. Whether it’s your favourite holiday destination, or somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, take inspiration from a faraway place to bring a cool travel vibe to your home.
Inspired by the Mediterranean
Blue shades are very much on trend this year and they are a key element for this scheme. Layer a range of hues including denim blues, deep indigos and vibrant teals to give your room different dimensions, and evoke a sense of calm oceans and cloudless skies. Opt for a statement armchair or sofa in Festival Ink, Festival Teal, Fleck Blue or Bobble Aqua.
Keep the look cool and fresh by pairing vibrant shades with pale woods and whites. Incorporate natural materials like cotton, linen, bamboo, stone and wicker through your choice or furniture and accessories. This will help give the room an honest and relaxed feel and transport you to your favourite coastal destination. For a cohesive look choose bold ornaments in block colours.

Inspired by the Safari
The tribal trend remains popular in fashion and interiors and is the perfect choice for a summer update in your home. Stick to neutrals and earthy tones like coal black, clay and stone on key pieces of furniture to give a raw elemental look. Green also works well for a safari theme, particularly when paired with dark wood. The Fifty Five Armchair, available from John Lewis, looks great in Marl Green with an American Walnut wood finish. When choosing scatter cushions, bring in zesty brights or elegant animal prints for a pop of colour.
Weave in African elements including tribal print throws and rugs, macramé wall hangings and artisanal ornaments which will draw the eye and make the room visually exciting. The idea of bringing the outdoors in is also big in interiors right now, so include large leafy plants and grasses and evoke the feeling of an African Safari.

Inspired by the World Traveller
This trend is all about creating a cheerful and bright aesthetic. An eclectic mix of belongings from a range of countries and cultures will add charm and a sense of adventure. The key to making this interiors scheme work is to keep your backdrop simple. Bright white walls will make colours and textures stand out. Bring in warm, bold colours such as yellows and oranges to inject a little holiday heat.
For more of a bohemian look, feature a range of fabrics with clashing colours and patterns along with statement vintage furniture. Modern and bright graphic artwork can add character to your space and unusual ornaments that tell stories of your travels are best for creating a look that is truly worldly.
