LET’S be hon­est, a hol­i­day isn’t just about re­lax­ing and get­ting away from it all, it also has sta­tus value. Ex­otic des­ti­na­tions – the far­ther flung or more un­usual the bet­ter – give us in­stant hol­i­day cred and most of us will have boasted about a break. But now our homes can do the talk­ing be­cause trav­el­ogue style is hot, whether it’s walls and ac­ces­sories dis­play­ing maps, or small touches which give the im­pres­sion you’re al­ways on the move. So in­tro­duce a lit­tle wan­der­lust into your home – or sat­isfy the arm­chair trav­eller within – with a trunk full of travel treats for rooms.
