Traveling is one of my all-time favorite passions! I am lucky enough to have had the opportunity to travel to many different places with my family and friends and on several school trips. Although it's always bittersweet when a vacation draws to a close, I enjoy finding creative ways to keep my vacation memories close at hand. Here are some examples of ways you can incorporate a special trip into your everyday decor!
Frame it. Don't just upload all of your pictures to Facebook and forget about them! As soon as you get home, print some of your favorite candids from the trip and display them in pretty frames, like this Mosh Multi Desk Frame, for all your friends to see.
Throw it around. Throw pillows are the perfect bedding accessory, because they are easy to change out from season to season without having to redesign your entire room. This chic Victoria Pillow reminds me of when I went on a school trip with some of my closest high school friends to the U.K. and visited Buckingham Palace! Especially with the Olympics drawing closer, I've recently been in a Royal state of mind.
Find a new "it" case. I love switching my phone case to match my mood, and this beautiful sunset artwork, originally by Andy Warhol, reminds me of watching the sun set over the Mediterranean Sea in Tel Aviv on an amazing trip I went on last summer. It is a sweet and subtle reminder of all of the friends I made and things I experienced last year-- something I will never forget!
What's your favorite place you've ever been? Where have you never been but hope to go most? What's the greatest souvenir you've ever found abroad?
