I am always on the lookout for unique and inexpensive wall decor.  In general, if you are looking for something to cover that large empty space on your wall you had better be prepared to spend a little if you want anything decent.  While the curtains on the site – -can run upwards of $500, you can find very unique designs for only $30-$40.  You will have to pay $15 or so for shipping from Japan, but they are still very afforable.  Japanese Noren curtains are made for doorways, but they look great on a wall too.  They are made from silk, cotton and hemp.  The hemp curtains are generally the nicest…and most expensive.


Welcome to The Travelled Home’s New Blog!

February 11, 2007

I decided to start this blog to help chronicle all the unique design finds I come across online and to share thoughts and images from my travels around the world. I follow a lot of very interesting blogs on design (check blogroll on right) and I am hoping this blog will offer a bit of different flavor. You see, I have a passion for travelling. I love discovering new places and cultures. And one of the things I like about these new places is their design. I get very inspired by the creativity of places like Thailand and Bali. I started The Travelled Home ( about 2 years ago to showcase the unique decor design from places like these. And I am hoping that this blog will serve as an outlet for the thoughts and experiences that feed The Travelled Home.

So, thanks for visiting and come back soon!!
