Travel Europe Through Interior Design: 5 Creative Vacation-Inspired Home Decor Ideas

by DecorMatters|May 10, 2023

Can you believe that the DecorMatters app has been around for 6 years already? To celebrate our anniversary, we hosted a virtual interior design challenge called "Vacation." We invited our talented community of designers to spruce up spaces in five beautiful locations - Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Italy.

The challenge theme allowed our participants to showcase their creativity by reflecting each country's unique charm in their home designs. It was a delightful opportunity to celebrate culture, honor the spirit of exploration, and, above all, have a blast with design. So, get ready to be taken on a visual journey that will inspire your love for interior design and travel.
