Decorating with maps

i love the look of maps and globes in the home...aged vintage maps look beautiful framed in a formal setting
or old school maps in pretty pastel shades hanging casually in a family room would look amazing dont you think?!
I also love bright maps in a kids room - they are educational too....
a great way to stir up that Wanderlust

  1. Maps have beautiful colours and shapes and are amazing to look at. :D

  2. How funny! I was just thinking about how much I would love a giant map to display on one of the high walls in the house. I really love that last photo with a framed map. And the gorgeous turquoise ceramic pieces.

    I'm sure it will inspire lots of wanderlust in me. x

  3. Very nice use of maps!!! That door is amazing.

  4. The door is very cool... but I am LOVING the last picture with the blue ceramic pieces! That is FABULOUS!!
