Travel and inspiration diary

Traveling can make you grow, learn and explore both new locations and the inner part of yourself. When we leave our comfort zone, we get new ideas and inspirations. Keeping a dedicated diary of all the steps of our travel is the best way to bring these suggestions with us. Let's be clear we are not talking of becoming travelers, in the romantic sense of the word, but we just want to give you some advice on how to pin down design ideas encountered on the way, in order to have them handy when you have to decorate or update your home.

Traveling can make you grow, learn and explore both new locations and the inner part of yourself. When we leave our comfort zone, we get new ideas and inspirations. Keeping a dedicated diary of all the steps of our travel is the best way to bring these suggestions with us. Let's be clear we are not talking of becoming travelers, in the romantic sense of the word, but we just want to give you some advice on how to pin down design ideas encountered on the way, in order to have them handy when you have to decorate or update your home.

There are epic, memorable or mediocre trips, or even journey that you just want to forget. In each case it is while travelling that you will find the greatest number of inspirations. No matter if you are visiting a distant country, exploring a foreign culture, or if you are simply walking trough a local village not far your home, there will probably be a number of ideas that will catch your eye. We think that inaugurating a diary dedicated to design solutions that strike us when we travel, is the only way to bring home, not just a nice memory of the trip, but also a fresh and original furnishing experience.

Let's be clear, don't think about those beautiful leather blocks with laces or the old notebooks - those are good for a real travel diary - we encourage you to use your Instagram, Pinterest or maybe even a dedicated folder on your Google Photos account, to report pictures of the ideas that most impress you. All these "new" digital tools are often used to photograph our reality, or even a reality that we aim to make ours. If instead we look at them as blank pages, we can take advantange of them by saving ideas that came to us during our trips. In this way we can really include in our everyday environments the emotions that we experiences directly on our skin during our travels.

In a way social networks allow us to travel with the mind, but we think they should also be filled with moments and emotions that have caught us personally while we visited a beautiful hotel, a church, a historic villa, a museum or who knows what else. Mostly these travel inspirations, experienced personally, should enter in our homes as decor ideas. And to put in practice these ideas you can relay on intOndo, the best place to find rare objects from afar and near worlds.
