We are the sum of our experiences and that experience could be anything. Sometimes it is as simple as a conversation that has had a lasting impact on you, surrendering to nature and enjoying that sound of a cricket or travelling to a new place. That experience has transformed you in a way that you may not know.
One way to bring back the experience of travel to your “home” is to bring back an artifact or a painting of the local origin. It will remind you of the place you have been to and adds that special “charm” to your living space. Getting something like a Table “runner” or a “coaster set” is a great conversation starter on the dining table.
A nice painting will always transform any room and if it’s from a place you have travelled then it will also have a backstory to it. Painting, Area rug, Cushions and Platter sets are my favorite pieces to carry back for a living / Family room. However sometimes we are constraint on the space that we have in our bags and what we can carry back home, in that scenario getting something like a small wine holder, local small artifact, accent cushion covers are sure to bring that required “zing” to your living room.
So next time you travel to a new place…bring back that special “local” artifact and/or painting that speaks to you to add to your HOME!!!
