A Safari, Travel-Inspired Bedroom Guaranteed to Delight Any Guest

Welcome to the 474th Metamorphosis Monday!

Delphine enjoys traveling and has collected some wonderful memorabilia over the years. When she designed her guest room, she was inspired to decorate in a delightful travel/safari theme What a fabulous idea for a guest room since anyone lucky enough to sleep here would most likely love all things, travel.

Travel Themed Guest Room


For this travel-themed bedroom, Delphine found a fun leopard-inspired coverlet for the bed. Zebra accent pillows and African animal prints above the bed, add to this safari inspired setting. I love the suitcase at the foot of the bed! In the soft light of the lamps, this room really has a romantic feel, doesn’t it?

Of course, no travel-themed decor would be complete without a map for keeping tabs on where you’ve been and where you hope to travel next.

Do you see the red pins highlighting the places Delphine has been? If you have a large wall that you’ve been struggling with decorating, this would be such a cute idea! There are quite a few of these extra-large maps available here: Large Wall Map. You would probably need to have the map attached to a cardboard backboard or bulletin board designed for pinning. The red pins are available here: Red Push Pins.

Update: Delphine said her map was professionally framed and was mounted on a foam backing that’s works well with push pins.

Across on the other side of this travel-themed guest room, you’ll find more souvenirs and travel related memorabilia.

Delphine has a fondness for giraffes, as do I, so keep your eye out to see how many you can spot as we take a tour of this wonderful guest room.

I love the addition of the cameras, safari hat/jacket and binoculars. This is making me want to book a trip to Africa right now!

What a great piece for this corner of the room…so fun! Can you name all the animals in this whimsical totem pole?

Thanks so much to Delphine for sharing this wonderful, travel-themed guest room. It has reignited in me a serious case of wanderlust and makes me want to book a trip back to Giraffe Manor right now!

Do  you have a room in your home that’s decorated in a travel-inspired design? I think this would be really cute idea for a guest bathroom, as well.

  2. Susan, thank you for sharing Delphine’s guest room. Since I love travel, this room speaks to my traveler’s heart! This is a fun idea for a guest room!

  3. Thanks so much for hosting each week!!

  4. José-Luiz G. de Montenegro-Magalhães says

    Très charmante chambre ! Merci beaucoup pour vos articles !

  5. who wouldn’t love a safari stay in that fun room! Love the map and the bedspread! Thanks for the party today Susan~

  6. So imaginative! It gives me the feel of an English ambassador’s home back in the days of Agatha Christie and the rule of the British empire. What a charming room Delphine has created!

  7. Jill from Southern NH says

    What a nice, inspiring room to view on a Monday morning – so layered and unique. I too love giraffes, and while I’ve never left our continent, my sister and I stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge (separate from Animal Kingdom Park) at Disney World a few months ago. The rooms and lobby are beautifully designed, and it has the largest collection of African art in the US! Majestic giraffes roamed on the grounds right outside our room every day (and night!) and I spent much of the trip visiting different artisan stands to pick the perfect hand-carved wooden giraffe to bring home to enjoy on my bookshelf. Love this room design – even little things like the texture of the linen-covered chest at the end of the bed help make it special.

  8. Love it!

  9. Looks as if it could be a room that Ernest Hemingway might have stayed in on one of his safaris. It is welcoming and comfortable with many things to see and admire. I love the ambiance of it.

  10. Loved this idea……as much as I love to travel, I can’t believe I never thought of this! Perfect!

  11. Love this theme…..as much as I love to travel I can’t believe I never thought of this….but the safari theme is so perfect. LOVE the safari vest, hat and binoculars…..perfect!

  12. She really did a great job with her safari theme. It’s comfortable and calm. I like all her accents. I had a safari themed room briefly but never had it pulled together this well. I enjoyed seeing this!

  13. Very well done. Delphine’s been around. I think she liked Africa the best.

  14. Fun room. I like the wooden barrel holding the plant; it adds just the right touch.

  15. So much fun!

  16. Love it! How do I book in?

  17. Love the map!

  18. A really warm and inviting room. Fun too! Thanks for all the ideas on how to incorporate travel favorites into room decor.

  19. LOVE this room as I love anything with an animal theme. Actually most of my home is decorated with a travel/animal theme along with Asian decor. Mostly with things inherited from my FIL who was a pilot. Thanks so much for hosting, Susan.

  20. I loved this – maybe because I have a guest room decorated in the same motif! It was originally my youngest son’s and had a mosquito net over the bed. Now it’s a more sophisticated look. Very nicely done!

  21. WHAT A UNIQUE ROOM!! I really luv what was done and it is so personal! franki

  22. I enjoyed seeing Delphine’s Safari Guest Room!
    Thanks for hosting!

    Very unique! Reminds me of one of my favorite movies “Out of Africa”. Great job, Delphine! Thanks Susan, so when is your next trip back to Africa? Lol

  24. Cyndi Raines says
