Hello again! Dawn here, from AD Aesthetic, and I’m back with another mood board for your decoration inspiration. Reflecting on summer memories led to this travel themed decor compilation!
Growing up with two teachers for parents, summer time was always family time. Since my parents didn’t have to take time off work, we made sure to go on a family vacation at least once each summer, even if it wasn’t a big trip. So naturally, summer time, for me, always brings up memories of traveling, and this month, I had that on the brain as I was putting together this travel themed moodboard.

Tips for Decorating with a Travel Theme
Here are some tips for getting a well-traveled look:
Don’t get too hung up on a theme.
The best approach to avoid the ‘room in a bag’ look is to let things evolve naturally. Sometimes when you’re traveling, the most memorable moments come from spontaneity, and decorating can be the same. Getting too hung up on a ‘theme’ can take the life out of your decor, making it feel too rigid and stuffy.
Go for a collected look.
A great way to avoid that overly themed look is to go for more of a collected-over-time vibe that has a more authentic travel feel to it. Pull one or two main colors out to carry through the space, but otherwise, look for pieces that have a subtle well-traveled aesthetic and let the room evolve around them.
Include some history.
Part of the fun of traveling is seeing all the historic landmarks and feeling like you’re experiencing a small part of that history. Bring this feeling into your space by incorporating a few vintage pieces into the decor. The authentic history of vintage or antique furniture will automatically make the room have a collected feeling, like it has a story to tell. And we all know that the best trips always result in a great story!
