Decorating with Maps & Globes

This week more than ever maps are front and center in my world as we travel on a family vacation to new cities we’ve never visited before.  Both maps and globes make fantastic home décor because they remind us of our past travels, or places we seek to visit when given the opportunity. 

Modern maps can be found in coffee table books or atlases, and a variety of framed prints are readily available online.  Old World maps are intriguing for their historical references, and vintage or limited edition maps are cherished by collectors.   Maps and globes are universally appealing in decorating, and one of the simplest ways to bring graphic, colorful art into your home. 

Here, a large scale wall map acts like a mural in a space designed to keep kids both organized and inspired.
