Who doesn’t want to travel and see the world out there? Even if you could never imagine yourself leaving your town for a long time, deep down you would dream of being wanderlust sometimes. Just admit it, there’s nothing to worry about, it’s a safe place between us!
Whether or not you have traveled to other places and countries other than yours, you would want the euphoria to linger, the excitement of finding new things, meeting new people. What if we told you that you can actually make this come true?
Yep, YOU can bring a little bit of wanderlust into your own home. This way, you can relive the memories anytime even without the extra stamp on your passport. Newbies, this can get you closer to your wanderlust dream a little more.
Without further ado, let’s get to it! Here are 11 ways to bring wanderlust into your home!
1. Put up posters and photos on your walls
This is probably the simplest thing you can do to first. It’s time to scroll through your photo collection and print out some of the best that bring back great memories or encourage you the most to finally go out there. You can assign one wall to hang all the posters and photos, or you can also scatter them around the house: on the fridge, on nightstands, or even perhaps bring them into one collection and make a photo album for your coffee table.

Have you been dreaming of a beach getaway in the Maldives? Can we tease you with the idea of designing your bathroom with beach-like decoration? Instead of tiles and metals, how about using soft gravels and bamboo?
3. If detailed decoration is too much, use colors and prints instead
We get that besides money, detailed decorations, like the two points we mentioned before, can take a lot of time and effort to pull off. Especially if you’re not into details, it may not be worth it.
So, instead of going all out with details, how about just playing with colors and prints? So, instead of buying tatami chairs and mats, just paint your dining room with colors that represent Japan. Go for white with a touch of pink for Sakura and light brown and black for the Japanese traditional house.
4. Country themed dinner set
In addition to colors and prints, you can also turn your conventional dining room into a Japanese-style one with a Japanese-inspired dinner set. This works if you prefer plain wall paints but don’t mind with vibrant colors and prints on your household items such as a dinner set.
This white-with-strikes-of-pink set can be your choice to represent Sakura blossoms in Japan. Or perhaps some other patterns that take you back to places you have been? Better yet, you can buy the set from its origin country. Even though you cannot travel just yet, those pr
