travel inspired decor ideas

-- pin the photo above to save for later --

We've done a lot of FaceTime tours for family and friends of our travel-themed beachy apartment in Sydney, so I figured I’d share how we decorated our apartment on the blog with all of you too! I’m going to walk you through a picture "tour" of our apartment & tips on how to decorate your flat affordably, with a simple, minimalist and most importantly, TRAVEL vibe. As an expat, you always think "it's a temporary situation" so don't want to break the bank on home decor, so we searched for affordable items that look cute and I'm eager to share them. Throughout the post, I’ll be linking the same or similar products (since most of mine purchased here are aussie-brands) for you to click through and purchase if you wish!

I went with a black, white, and tan theme, given the brightness of the space and the tan hardwood floors (that I LOVE), and added mismatched pops of color throughout with various accents. I like to keep it pretty simple with neutral colors for a minimalist style.
