I’ve searched Amazon and these were my favorite wanderlust decor items for your living room space that will make you feel inspired to dream or even plan your next vacation! Click on the images below to be taken to the details page.

Throw Pillows

Pillows make any and every couch look so much cozier, wouldn’t you agree? They can even add a mood to your room all by themselves. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing but they’re functional! Here are some of my personal favorite travel themed designs I found on Amazon.

I love these Ambesonne cushion covers. The modern, sleek design is eye catching and captivating. They are waterproof and machine washable. Best of all, there are no dyes in this design making it safe for the entire family!

Lets Talk Walls

In a moment of absolute truth, wall decor options are absolutely endless. Framed pictures, canvas and wall stickers are just a few options for decorating your walls. There is a plethora of wall art to choose from on Amazon but the below are some that really stood out to me.

This unique, colorful and fun piece is made from MDF wood fiberboard. It hangs securely from the twine strap that doubles as an artistic element.

Vintage is trendy! The above piece is a handmade print from California. It’s subtle colors and clear message are a fun and elegant way to bring some wanderlust into your space.

This is definitely one of my all time favorites! This XL sized scratch off map lets you keep track of where you’ve been while displaying your adventures on the wall for all to see! It’s great for families and adults who want a visual of all the places they’ve traveled. On the bottom portion of the map you will see flags from different countries you can scratch off too. This purchase also comes with a lifetime guarantee which makes it a great buy!

Knick Knacks and Such

Novelty items are a great way to bring some quirkiness to any space! They’re often the eye-catching thing everyone wants to talk about while visiting. The items below are some of the unique, wanderlust inspired shelf items I love!

This cute little suitcase is more of a display item than an actual bank (although it can still be used as a bank!). It measures 8.5″x6″ and is made of wood. It is vintage and wholesome, yet creative!

This classic style box sign measures 10″x6″ and is made with high quality wood. It’s the perfect item to stand on a shelf or countertop when you need an uplifting message.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a love of globes! I love how they inspire my desire to discover. This chalk globe was just too good not to add (although we already have the gorgeous white Deco globe!). It’s 8 inches in diameter and allows you to personalize your world and put it on display for all to see! Keep track of the places you’ve been or the places you’re going with this interactive chalk globe!

These non-skid book ends come with padded bases so you don’t have to worry about that collection of travel books going anywhere! Revisit your favorite trip to London with each look or be inspired to keep working toward the goal of visiting the bustling city that so many have on their bucket list.

How extraordinary is this whiskey decanter? This is definitely a conversational item. This hand blown glass has a ship etched into it to communicate the love of travel of the owner. Have you noticed the glasses? They display a map of the world. Even if whiskey isn’t your thing, this item can be used at parties and events with juice, lemonades, water etc.

Blankets and Throws

Every living room needs a good blanket (or 2, or 87…). These blankets are not only fire for your inner traveler but will keep you warm on those cold nights in between your trips!

Displaying a world map from the 1720s, this vintage style microfiber blanket will keep you cozy and travel focused. Study the map and see how things have changed around the area you live or have traveled to! This cover is made from polyester and measures 50″x30″.

Paris is always a good idea! This classic Audrey Hepburn statement rings true for blankets too! Cuddle up with the Eiffel Tower and be whisked away into fantasy land dreaming of Paris. This plush throw measures 50″x60″.

Can we really get anymore British than this? The British flag is one of the most recognizable flags in the world and now it’s time you wrap yourself up in one! This beauty is made of soft flannel and measures 60″x78″.
