What Design Ideas Can You Pick Up From Your Tel Aviv Vacation?

For any interior design lovers out there who are bracing themselves for a new project, vacations can be a great way to pick up some ideas and influences which you can incorporate into your home.

This is especially true when it comes to the popular tourist destination, Tel Aviv. Acting as a melting pot for various cultures, Tel Aviv has a number of beautiful spaces and innovative design features, making it a perfect starting point when it comes to getting your ideas together. Not to mention, the sunny beaches are pretty nice, too!

What Design Ideas Can You Pick Up From Your Tel Aviv Vacation?

To give you an idea, here are three of the ways a trip to Tel Aviv can influence your own interior design:

The White City Proves That White Works

Tel Aviv is known as the White City because – who’da thunk it? – a lot of the buildings there are white. When it comes to home design, it can be very easy to get carried away with colours and the temptation to do something a little bit different. It’s often the case, however, that the simplest of colour schemes work the best. White is a blank slate, leaving you with a number of opportunities to add colour through art, plants and alternative décor ideas. It also helps to light up your home and give it a sense of brightness which is important if your windows do not catch the sun during daylight hours.

The Melting Pot Of Cultures

As mentioned previously, Tel Aviv is a melting pot of cultures, and there’s no reason why your own home can’t be too. Incorporating a variety of cultures into your design can help to elevate your space with a bit of variety and help to avoid it becoming one note. This can be as simple as including a few Israeli art pieces or infusing tranquil Japanese plant life. You don’t even have to bring anything home with you. There are plenty of ways you can purchase décor which radiates the cultures you have been taken in by, and sites like can also offer a number of Israeli artworks which are perfect for adding that colour to your beautiful white walls.

Take The Renovation Leap

Another thing you will notice in Tel Aviv is how open the floorplans are. This allows for better light and a more spacious feel, which is perfect if your home feels a little tight in some areas. As well as this, if you are in a hotter climate, an open space can help to alleviate the heat and allow more drought to cool the space down naturally. Of course, taking the leap to renovate your home can be a bit daunting, but Tel Aviv proves how much of an improvement it can make. Look at transforming the hubs of your home, such as the kitchen with the living room. You would be surprised how much of a difference removing a wall can make. Just ensure you get the right, professional advice before you begin, and you have permission to make the changes.
