Worldly Spaces

Have you noticed the use of maps in decor and styling lately? There is something whimsical about maps, they conjur up images of far off places that I have travelled to or want to! I recently created a gorgeous garland made of my old street map book and it is so gorgeous! Have a look at these pics, I especially love them in kid's spaces but also on individual decor pieces such as the letters. These ideas are easy to implement and such conversation starters. Do you love it?

  2. Great post! Maps are so popular in decor these days because it's so versatile. It works in a baby's nursery to an adult's study. My favorite room is the kid's room (no.6). The giant map seems to envelope the space and it makes a wonderful illusion. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I like the older, brightly colored maps, hoping to come across one in my thrifting. Using a map for a picture mat is a novel idea.

  15. We are thinking of doing a wall map in a nursery for a friend! She found a 8'x5' decal of the West Indies at Pottery Barn.

    These are all great images, thank you for pulling them together!
