With a little skill and the right decoration, holiday feelings can also be implemented at home. I am going to discuss about “Decoration tips for travel enthusiasts” in this article.
At the North Sea coast
In need of a fresh breeze from the North or Baltic Sea? Accessories such as sailing ship models, ship bells or decorative objects such as coral or wooden fish spread a maritime flair. An oar or paddle attached to the wall fits into the picture just as much as a small lighthouse on the window sill. Cushions with maritime motifs and classic striped fabrics in blue and white also bring the sea breeze home. If you are creative and like to do handicrafts yourself, you can get the necessary material in the handicraft shop: For example, a nice greyhound is made from driftwood and shells. The balcony, terrace and garden are transformed into a dune landscape thanks to lanterns, oil lamps and torches. The world map on the wall sends the imagination on a journey. Historical views, treasure maps, graphic or physical world motifs With a photo wallpaper large effects can be achieved quickly and elegantly .
