Well Traveled Homes

Many a world traveler has honed his taste for adventure long before he could read a map, let alone drive a car. So when a wayfaring spirit finally settles into a home, it's only fitting that the space should recall journeys past, present, or only imagined.

The rooms above exhibit globetrotting styles from eclectic and exotic to elegant and the pieces on display hail from all corners of the world, each telling unique stories about their owners. Filling a home with treasures from afar adds a sense of drama and narrative to a space that inspires us to hop on a plane to anywhere but here. Whether you've actually explored all the origins of your décor or not, the style evokes flights of fancy that make a home exciting enough to stay put for.

The Inside Man is our guide to interior style for guys. All summer long we'll be sharing inspirations, ideas and projects. Check out our Inside Man page for more details.
