When your design aesthetic is minimalism-meets–Marie Kondo, decoration is simple: A mood-boosting plant here, joy-inducing white linens there, and you’re set. But when you embrace eclectic or Wabi Sabi home decor, the guidelines for choosing the right pieces for your home can be a bit trickier and open-ended. Good news: A new and wanderlust-heavy home-interior trend offers some unique ways to fill your space.

A pull-down map can cover your wall-mounted TV (faux-unplugging), you can use a series of small maps as wallpaper and wall art, and globes can function as well-placed sculptures.

As all things retro and ’90s return to the forefront of fashion and pop culture, interior design has also embraced nostalgia: Apartment Therapy reported seeing a lot of old-school maps and globes at NY Now (a major trade show for decor and giftables) and pointed out a few ingenious ways to feature them in your home. A pull-down map can cover your wall-mounted TV (faux-unplugging), you can use a series of small maps as wallpaper and wall art, and globes can function as well-placed sculptures. This way you can simply look around your room to conjure memories of all the places you’ve traveled.

Plus, spinning one of your decor globes and picking a random location might be the easiest way to figure out where your women’s circle should travel next. Because if nothing else, the constant presence of globes and maps will remind you that there’s a great big world out there, ripe for adventure.

Book a spring break Airbnb with a spa-like bathroom, and don’t forget to pack your vacation essentials.
