Interior design inspired by travel

 photo Travel-Themed-Kids-Room-With-Elegant-Modern-Decor_zps1cd028c2.jpeg

One of the great advantages of living in the 21st century is being able to travel to almost any destination in the world, with relative ease. In the course of just a couple of generations, international travel has gone from being the preserve of the rich and privileged, to being something that almost everybody can enjoy to some degree, regardless of wealth or social status.

Traveling has many benefits, but one of the greatest is its ability to broaden horizons. Traveling opens the mind and tantalizes the senses. It also raises the expectations: after all, who is going to be content with drab, dull décor once they return from visiting the stately homes and chateaux of Europe or the bazaars of North Africa?

It is sadly true that coming home after a trip abroad can be a bittersweet experience, ironically all the more so if the trip has been highly enjoyable, but this need not be the case. The vacation itself may be over, but the colors, shapes, impressions and sensory experiences of much-loved destinations can live on for years yet, within the four walls of home.

 Take inspiration

Travel can provide great inspiration for interior decor, but it is important to draw a clear line between inspiration and reproduction. Very few people could live easily inside a full-scale replica of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, but translate that idea into a line of mirrors with golden accents, set into a neutral modern interior, or a feature lighting fixture (perhaps a chandelier) against a completely plain white ceiling, and one of the most celebrated pieces of 17th century France is suddenly perfectly applicable to a modern home.

The inspiration can be as direct, or as tenuous, as required, as long as it achieves the objective of reviving those happy memories and travel experiences. Just back from a week in a luxury boutique hotel in New York? Why not recreate it with some gorgeous bedroom furniture in a cutting-edge modern style? Spent a wonderful fortnight on a sun-drenched Greek island? Simply using the dominant colors from that setting – in this case, perhaps blue and white – can transform the look and feel of the home. Suddenly, home need not feel so drab and ordinary.

Even something as simple as the use of light can evoke foreign climes. Why not pare back the design of a room and maximize the natural light, like the Scandinavians do? Or add feature shutters to windows, as is popular in Germany?

 Accessorize

Overseas inspiration does not have to end with colors and furniture. Thinking back to a recent trip, what were the dominant sounds and smells? Thanks to the internet it is now easy to purchase music from abroad, so the sounds of rebetiko can echo on past the end of that Greek holiday, and South America can live on in the strains of tango music. Likewise with scent; there is a vast array of perfumes available for the home, in all sorts of forms from scented candles to fragranced oils, and many of them are wonderful aids to evoking the atmosphere of exotic destinations.

Travel can be a source of growth and inspiration: why not factor it in to your own interior design plans?

Traveling abroad is an exciting adventure that many people don’t get a chance to experience. However, your dream vacation can quickly turn into a nightmare if you don’t properly prepare for your international trip. Thankfully, the following tips will help ensure your travel goes as smoothly as possible.

• Ensure your passport is up-to-date and not expired. Most countries will not allow you in if your passport is expired. Since a passport can take months to renew, take care of it as soon as possible or your trip aboard my need to be postponed.

• Choose reputable and trusted accommodation, such as PPA villa holiday properties. Make sure to read reviews from previous customers. This will help you determine which place you should stay as well as ge a good idea of what to expect during your stay.

• Make sure your vaccines are up-to-date. Some countries will refuse entry if you don’t have proof of proper immunization against various diseases like malaria and yellow fever. It’s a good idea to verify which vaccinations are necessary for the location you are traveling too. If you are not sure about what shots you have received, consult with your doctor.

• Contact your credit card company and bank. Some financial institutes become suspicious when credit or debit cards are used overseas and will freeze your account. And nothing can ruin your vacation worse than not having access to your funds. That is why it is important that you notify your financial institutes of where and when you will be traveling.

• Make copies of important documents, especially your passport. This is simply a precaution in case something happens to your identification and passport. That way you’ll have some documentation that identifies yourself. Keep the copies in your suitcase.

• Create an itinerary and share it with your family back home. This will give them a good idea of when and where you are. That way, if there is an emergency they can more easily get a hold of you. Also, if a catastrophe happens at the destination you are traveling to, it can ease the minds of your family knowing that you are not in the middle of the devastation.

• Take and protect your photos. Photos is a great way to document your adventure and will allow you to look back on them fondly for years to come. However, things can happen — such as a lost camera or damaged memory card — that could result in complete loss of the irreplaceable photos. If, however, you get a free or paid account with a online photo gallery, you can periodically transfer your photos there where they will be safe until you can retrieve them.

London is considered as one of the greatest cities in the world! But that is why it also costs a lot more money to stay longer time here and not everyone can afford it.

Georgetown Streets, Malaysia

 photo swing_zps92adcb22.jpg

On arrival, visitors are usually intrigued by the narrow, congested streets of Georgetown and its pulsating waterfront. It is here, on the waterfront, that Penang is linked to the 20th century by the flotilla of freighters and streamers anchored in the harbor, which cause the ferryboats from Butterworth to zigzag a 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) winding course to reach the landing at Weld Quay.

Penang is a Far East warehouse for everything imaginable, from electronic gadgets to plastic toys. There are silks from Thailand and India, fabric from England, cameras from Germany and Japan, textiles from America and from Malaysia, brocade and sarongs. Jalan Pinang (Penang Road) is the main shopping market. Shops open in the early morning and do not close until the bars are empty and the late moviegoers have cleared the streets.

Lebuh Campbell, just off Penang Road is the main “Chinese” shopping center where Nepalese street vendors sell nylon shirts, fake alligator-skin shoes, laughing jack-in-the-boxes, and precious stones, guaranteed to cut glass.

Perhaps the most exciting shopping in Penang is in the many junk shop along Rope Walk. Here, shoppers must literally climb over mounds of discarded gear. Those who do not mind getting their hands dirty are certain to discover a dusty thing or two. One London boutique saleswomen found a luxurious Chinese emperor’s robe salvaged from the local opera stage. So, why don’t you give a try and you might find something more interesting that you expected.

Batu Ferringhi

 photo Malaysia-Penang-Beaches-at-Batu-Ferringhi_zps6e72d015.jpg

The road to Penang’s north coast follows the curve of the land, twisting up and around a hill or skirting the fringe of the sea. Rocky headlands jutting out into the sea divide the shoreline into small bays and coves, each with a different character and charm. Although the waters are not as clear as on the East Coast, the beaches are still popular for swimming and sunbathing.

Most activities are centered around Batu Ferringhi, one of the most popular beaches in Southeast Asia. Batu Ferringhi is locates about 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) from Penang city. The large luxury hotels and resort of Shangri – La’s Rasa Sayang Resort, Golden Sand Resort, Parkroyal Penang Resort, Lone Pine Hotel, Hydro Hotel, Holiday Inn Resort, The Bayview Beach Resort, Hard Rock Hotel and more can be found. Their facilities include water-skiing, sailing, windsurfing, water scooters and horse riding. Smaller and older, but comfortable and reasonable price, are Palm Beach Resort and Sri Sayang Resort. Small inns and motels as well as many villagers in this area also offer accommodation.

As the sun set, Batu Ferringhi comes alive with a carnival-like atmosphere with an open-air bazaar selling anything from ornate curios to enticing souvenir items. Anyway, water sports and beach activities are the main entertainment during daytime. Besides, tourists are advised to beware of jellyfish, in case you get stung, apply vinegar (get from any restaurant nearby) and get to the nearest clinic. When the moon rises, night market and restaurant are the best place to go.

Kuan Yin Temple

 photo kuan-yin-temple-goddess-of-mercy-temple-53977_zps25ea8b5b.jpg

Of all the Chinese temples in Penang, the oldest Kuan Yin Temple is Lebuh Pitt. As is fitting, it is also the most humble and most crowded. This temple belongs to the people in the street – the noodle hawkers, the trishaw riders, and the housewives doing the daily shop in the market, the old shopkeepers calculating cupboards, repairing bicycles or selling sundries. Kuan Yin, a Buddhist god that shows the most mercy.

She is ever-present on Chinese altars, whether the worshippers be Taoist, Buddhist or Confucian. Throughout the day, people visit her temple to burden her with problems they cannot solve or to thank her for the blessing which ended their worries. The clicking of “divining sticks” ricochets throughout the halls as devotees ask her advice for the coming week, men and women of Georgetown know that Kuan Yin will reply. She is perhaps the most beloved divinity of all the Chinese altars in Penang. The worshipping of Kuan Yin is a meeting ground between traditional Chinese belief and Buddhism.

Kuan Yin Temple has a well-worn look. The halls are heavily laden with scented smoke. The floors are littered with joss sticks wrappers and discarded shopping bags. The altars look like a banquet table with roasted chickens, sweet cakes, oranges, pineapples and cookies neatly placed as humble offerings to the goddess. If you are not a Buddhist, you may just want to walk by and take a photo of this oldest temple in Penang.

Night-time Niceties in Georgetown

 photo walk_zpsde3e7767.jpg

The streets of Georgetown, Penang are made for nightlife. The Chinese, in particular, never seem to go to bed. Their open-front restaurants are noisy gathering places where waiters shout your order to someone in a back room. A jukebox, if there is one, is turned on full volume. Hawker stalls on Gurney Drive and the Esplanade do a thriving business, while brightly lit stores cater to late-night shoppers. At the fashionable hotels, latecomers wait in line at the discotheques. There are roof top restaurants where dinners look down over the city light, hills and harbor, and dark cellar cabarets with no view at all.

Those who prefer to seek entertainment in bars can find a few around Georgetown and on the northern outskirts of the city. Some small and friendly establishments, like Hong Kong Bar, keep a “family album” of snapshots showing just about every traveler who has walked in and bought a drink. They provide jukeboxes for dancing, game machines for entertainment and barmaids for conversation. If you prefer a light music and comfortable surroundings, I would like to recommend the Penang Bar Street, along the stretch of Penang Road from Cititel Hotel and to where it intersects with Lebuh Farquhar. Others are more consciously sophisticated, like the Farquhar Bar in the Eastern & Oriental Hotel, which only operate until midnight.
