I am planning on changing my room to a travel theme. What kinds of things should I put in my room?

My walls are blue and yellow and are staying that color. I have many pictures to put up on my walls from my trip to England, France, and Italy. What kind of frames should i frame my pictures in? What types of decorations should i put up on my wall? Tips and Ideas of all types please!!

Maps have already been suggested, but they are pretty cool. A globe is even better; some even light up from inside and are great at night.

I suggest a travel bookshelf, with travel narratives and guide books. You can get lots of guidebooks for cheap at yard sales; some of the information about places to eat and sleep goes out of date but most of it stays current. Go to Amazon listmania and find lists of the best travel books.

If you hang any of your clothing right in the room (on portable closets) try some lovely travel clothing or a panama hat.

Music really changes the space, so why not some great world music for your cd player. Putamayo has a great selection of cds from all over the world.

You can get great travel accessories at the National Geographic or the Rand McNally retail stores. You'll get idea there, too.

You can even get travel theme sheet sets.

If you want to go far out, you can have glistening stars on the ceiling and a sleeping hammock (with or without mosquito netting) for your bed.
