Whether travelling is second nature, or simply a bucket list item, why not bring this luxury to the comfort of your home? You don’t need to fly 5,000 miles across the world to experience the beautiful features of Asia or Africa, there are plenty of easier, cost-effective methods that can transform your home into a worldwide masterpiece as we discovered in this exciting 3-bedroom basement/ground floor apartment in Lapworth, Solihull.
Here are a few ways you can get started;
Imagery & Art
In my opinion this is the most effective way to turn your home into a jet-setters paradise. From canvases of the delightful New York skyline, to the simplistic features of a golden beach of African coastline, everywhere can feel close to home.
Tiles & Wallpaper
Although this example from Fetherston Grange’s bathroom may seem a bit ‘out there’, it does give a magical, African vibe which really transforms the room. Tiles and wallpaper can be used to give your standard magnolia walls a fabulous cultural feel. From vibrant Moroccan tiles, to wallpaper of exotic Mediterranean beaches.
The easiest way to turn your home into a cultural retreat. Choose curiosities and home accents that suit your style, you don’t necessarily need to stick to one country or theme, mix it up and make it your own. There are little shops and stalls all over the place where you can pick up little bits and bobs that could transform your home. From little wooden elephants, to traditional African rugs.
