Travel The World From The Comfort Of Your Home

Although it is spring break season, you may not be able to get away from it all.  That doesn't mean you can't pretend to walk the beaches of your favorite coast or stroll down villas of far-away lands with travel-themed home decor.

From across the country to around the world, travel the world from the comfort of your home with these 7 inspired ideas that are sure to satisfy your wanderlust.

The new Rosanna Come Fly With Me collection conjures the glamour and excitement of retro travel with images from vintage vacation brochures touting exotic locales.  From your office desk to your bedroom side table, you are never far from your dream vacation.

In My Own Style renovated her mudroom to reflect a Grand Central Station feel.  Decorating with clocks is a great idea to keep you on track when contacting family members and friends living in different time zones.

Ki Nassauer shares with Worthpoint how she created shelves in her living room using discarded vintage suitcases.

I love to use my vintage suitcases for entertaining; they add visual interest to items that may get lost on a busy table.  You may not have to look far to find your own, there may be a treasure trove in a forgotten corner.  This one traveled with grandma as she moved across the Western seaboard in the 40's and 50's.

The Voyage collection explores the bygone days of international travel with porcelain trays showcasing ephemera found by Rosanna around the world. Newly found vintage ephemera from Europe and the USA have expanded the collection, creating a modern take on times gone by.

Each of Pottery Barn Teen's pillow covers are delightfully detailed with dream destinations from LA to London, Boston to Barcelona.

Your travel inspirations aren't limited to home decor; the Rosanna Totes are market chic, both playful and refined, and designed to remind us of life's lovelier moments, like traveling to idyllic locales from Paris to Tuscany. They are perfect for a trip to your local farmer's markets to pick up seasonal flowers, local produce and freshly baked goods.

What type of travel-themed items do you like to use in  your home decor?
