10 beautiful spaces for the creative wanderluster

I’ve always felt extra inspired while working in cute spaces that encourage the creative juices to flow. That being said, I LOVE seeing travel-themed spaces in homes. Here I’ve collected 10 of my favorite spaces, including another space close to my heart- my own travel-themed home office!

1.) From one of my favorite blogs, World of Wanderlust, Brooke created her own travel wall. This wall is enough to inspire you to see the world and keep working towards your dreams! Also, if you have never checked out her blog, I highly encourage you to do so. She speaks to my soul and is a very genuine, sweet girl.

2.) Travel-inspired dining room courtesy of my friend Lauren from Sobremesa Stories.  How cute is this map above her dining room table?! I love her color scheme of the soft blue pastels and the rustic look of this space. #goals

3.) This home office is a great place for a wanderluster to rest at while she’s currently not traveling!

4.) This wall cubby from Pottery Barn is PERFECT for storing travel keepsakes.

5.) These wooden crates and the large map add a rustic, old-schooled approach to this gorgeous travel-themed office.

7.) This travel-inspired nursery is too perfect. I would love my nursery for my child to look like this someday. Oh the places you will go!

8.) Here’s another example of a cute travel wall gallery for above your desk in your home office via Live Laugh Rowe blog.

9.)This vintage inspired living room would also be great for a study for your home. I’m totally digging this map wallpaper!

10.) I couldn’t publish a blog post without adding my own personal touch, now could I?! I’m excited to show you my own travel-inspired desk, complete with a “Travel Does the Heart Good” canvas, a silver globe, and my own personal touch- my coffee mug from our trip to NYC.


I hope these spaces have given you a little extra inspiration. We wanderlusters deserve a place to feel happy in when we aren’t traveling! Create a space that reminds you of your adventures and a space that encourages you to keep seeing this world.

Stay inspired, friends!
