27-September happened to be World Tourism Day and while it seems a little too early to start traveling again, you can always create spaces that bring back fond memories of travel and even inspire wanderlust.  Decorating your housewith artefacts, souvenirs and travel related memorabilia not only creates happy homes but also add plenty of character to any space.

Since home decor is a passion with me, I am inspired by a lot of things I see and observe while I travel, whether it is art, architecture or just about anything that has rustic, charming vibes.   A home always has to be a reflection of your personality and what better way to showcase your individual personality than by decorating it with travel inspired accessories.  Here are some pictures.

Artefacts and accessories that reflect local art and craft form for great decor ideas whether it is the Gond painting of Madhya Pradesh, brassware of Tanjore or even the blocks of Rajasthan which are used in block printing.
