SENSE OF PLACE
Available September 19, 2023
For anyone interested in curating a home that is personal, functional, and beautiful, it’s important to understand how our surroundings impact our interiors. When a space evokes a strong sense of place––a sense of belonging and comfort––it becomes a place to rest and feel grounded, surrounded by those you cherish most. Evoking nostalgic attachment, the colors and textures of a landscape, or cultural traditions, meaningful and inspired interior design is bound to reflect the broader context of a place.
For globetrotters and armchair travelers alike, Travel Home revels in the intersection of travel and design, revealing how we can take inspiration from the beauty we experience in the world and authentically incorporate this into the spaces where we live and work. Vivid photography is paired with insightful essays, interviews with the designers, and hardworking tips for cultivating your own global home.
