RL Tips: Create a Bedroom Inspired by Traveling

Dream of your next destination each time you step into your private sanctuary


You can create a bedroom inspired by your passions. To make the traveler look work, keep your mixture of different cultures in check by using a palette of muted neutrals like gray and beige – very bright colors can look messy and juvenile.

How to achieve a look inspired by traveling:

Infuse a mix of cultures through a refined roster of travel trinkets. Try referencing to the outback with animal prints and antlers, then introduce Asian style with a Chinese drum stool in a bold color or go for an East meets West look with various prints and rich color palettes pertaining to both sides of the world.

You can also build your own night table with travel luggage or storage boxes, and keep everything elegant with touches of gold and silver luster.
