Dreams of travel are big for teens. There’s something so grown-up and sophisticated about globe-trotting and we all know they’re eager to bee seen as grown-up and sophisticated.
I’ve been seeing another big trend lately with cityscapes and travel oriented bedding and decor. So let’s hop over to London today to look at three different styles you could employ.
How about a highly graphic room in black and white with just the tiniest splash of red? This London comforter setcan get you started. And the two symbols on there – the double-decker bus and the phone box – are red emblems of the town you could employ around the room to add that splash of color.
Want just a bit more color than that? You could go kind of vintage or retro with warm colors with this London wallpaper mural newly released from RoomMates. It definitely gives off that travel vibe and 50s style. Pair it with some vintage London travel posters on the other walls and some retro steamer trunk furniture.
Or maybe crisp and colorful is more your style. I’ve always loved the designs from the Designers Guild and the double decker duvet set pictured here is no exception. London Bridge, double-decker buses and other icons are rendered in graphical style and tons of colors. Those colors aren’t the red, white and blue of the British Jack, though, which can present a tiny challenge. I did find a muted jack rug that could work with the grays in the duvet and a colorful poster of the London Underground Tube Lines that would pair nicely.
