I have always found maps to be quite fascinating. They are an in-depth glimpse of the world. Maps point out the places you have been, and allow you to notice all the places you have yet to explore. I find them to be even more fascinating when they are used in decor. From a framed vintage map, to wallpaper the size of the globe, maps can capture people’s interest and can be an instant conversation starter. People love to talk about their travels, hopes of places to see, and rightfully so. Why not shine some light in the world, right from your very own home.
Cheers to summer travel! Here are a handful of tasteful displays to plot your course. I can’t wait to share with you my journeys that are around the bend…
