I love to travel, and I love it to show in my home as well. But I like to keep my home very minimalistic, and try not to buy souvenirs, and things that, well, don’t really fit my home. What I love: decorating with maps! They instantly bring the world to my home, and give me the sense of travel, plus I think maps just look great, and usually bring great amount of color.
