Wanderlust: Decorating With Maps

April 11, 2012 0


If you follow my Monday blog series ‘From Place To Space‘, you know that besides interior design and decoration, traveling is one of my passions. Yes, I have a wandering heart! And for the days in between, I like to travel with my finger across maps. Well, truth be told, I did this as a kid on my globe and in my atlas. Nowadays, I click into Google Maps and plan my next little inspiring trip. 

Maps are not only valuable and informative, they also are very decorative. Especially vintage maps. I love the worn look and vintage print of old maps – and I must look for one on the upcoming flea market. Up to then I am flirting with these inspiring shots. Here’s to all wandering hearts!

    I love maps too. And I like them as decoration in a kids room (http://www.keinebaerchen.de/2011/04/08/fuer-weltenbummler/)
