A Food Fun Travel Guest Post
Anyone who travels – whether often or occasionally – knows how enriching and transformative the experience can be. Traveling gives you perspective, allows you to explore the world and learn about other cultures, meet new people, try new cuisines, and quite literally expand your horizons. Not to mention, it promotes happiness, relieves stress, and improves mental health.
Whether domestic or international, travel can be an experience that is reminisced for a lifetime. And what better way to keep those beautiful memories close than to decorate your home with the artwork of your favorite travel spots?
Aside from beautifying your space and adding a touch of personality to your home, landscape paintings, drawings, and photographs can also be a healthy form of escapism. Great art allows you to imagine yourself at your favorite spot or scene and to travel beyond your everyday surroundings – without leaving your house.
Read on for some great ideas on how to bring a slice of your favorite holiday or travel location to your home.
Tell Your Travel Story
Every traveler has a story, and the walls of your home can offer a glimpse into your favorite travel tales. Have you been deeply moved by the beauty of Yosemite? Perhaps you met a special someone in Berlin?
Whether you had a life-changing experience in a strange, new city or you simply tried a different, delicious food in a new area, your travels show where you’ve been, what you’ve experienced, and how they helped shape you as a person. As you decorate your living room, bedroom, or hallway, make these travel moments the highlight of your walls.
Landscape art is a fantastic choice for decorating your walls with either natural or urban elements, although natural scenery is a slightly more popular choice. Singulart’s selection offers a wide range of artworks in a variety of styles and techniques. From landscape paintings to photographs to drawings to textiles – the options are endless.
Best of all, landscape art looks excellent everywhere and will not only decorate your space but also create a very pleasant atmosphere. And if you choose a landscape to which you have a personal connection, it will also get your personality across.
Create a Statement Wall
A statement wall can display all your travel adventures or one of your favorite ones, depending on the room you’re decorating.
If you’ve been to many different countries and even more cities and towns, make a statement wall by choosing larger travel-themed artwork like maps or several paintings or photographs.
For example, a trio of medium-sized landscape paintings of your favorite city or location will not only add life and color to your space but also remind you of your favorite travel moments.
For a bit of cohesion, choose frames of similar profiles and the same color. If you prefer a more colorful design, combine rustic wood frames with bold modern frames of different colors. The latter can especially look good in a study room or anywhere you want to inspire creativity.
To create a statement wall with travel-inspired artwork, consider using online print-on-demand services that offer superb-quality poster printing. These services typically offer a variety of sizes and materials to choose from, allowing you to customize your wall art to fit your space and personal style. Look for companies with high customer ratings and reviews to ensure you receive the best quality prints.
Be Mindful of Color
When choosing colors for your artwork, think about what kind of atmosphere you want to create. Colors and emotions are closely linked, and studies have shown that colors can influence a person’s mental state.
We tend to associate warm colors like red, orange, and yellow with a range of emotions like power, passion, anger, but also comfort. Cold colors, such as blue, purple, and green, can create a calming, peaceful atmosphere but can also be associated with sadness.
Use warm, vivid colors like orange sunsets and yellow and red trees or architecture to evoke warm feelings, recall exciting nightlife spent in your favorite city, and stimulate your appetite. These colors fit really well in a kitchen or dining room.
Pick calm blue lakeside abstracts or fresh green forest paintings to recall the peaceful times spent in nature. Cool colors, whether in paintings, photos, or accents, can help you and your guests relax and unwind.
If you want to tell a cohesive travel story, pick a specific color family in your wall art and make it complement the rest of the space. This will pull the room together and evoke a certain type of feeling. Or, play around with colors and mix and match for a fun and funky aesthetic.
Have Fun With It!
Sure, following some basic interior design rules when decorating your home is a good idea, but ultimately, you want to be happy and comfortable in your personal space. So experiment a little and find your own style!
Want to bring travel to your home, but you’re on a tight budget? Place your travel trinkets on your desk, coffee table, or any other surface you see and use regularly. While you’re at it, place some photo prints around your home and string up a postcard collection in your bedroom.
Want to splurge on a landscape oil painting of your favorite place on earth but are afraid to make the place look gaudy? Do it anyway! Art, like travel, is about personal expression, so have fun with it.
