I’m not quite sure how this came about, but over the weekend I became obsessed with finding a world map (wallpaper or print) to decorate with. If you’re someone that’s not really big on wall art but would like to put something up to keep them from being completely bare, a world map could be an easy solution. You can go with a full on wall mural/wall paper, or find a smaller vintage print in a frame-the choice is yours.
The cool thing about it is, regardless of the color palette that you have in the chosen room or nook, you can find a map that will compliment the design. I’ve seen black + white/grayscale prints, pastel hues (like above) and warm, rustic hues of traditional maps. Plus, they’re not as expensive as you think: large prints on Etsy start around $15 (you’d probably pay more for the frame than the map itself), and you can find large rolls of wallpaper as low as $5 on Ebay.
Alternately, you can find heavier canvas prints + panels starting at $30. If it’s a passing decor phase and you don’t really want anything permanent, you can go with decals, which can be easily removed when you’re over it (and start around $12). I personally want wallpaper or a large print in a simple frame.
I’m going to do a little hunting around town this week (I’m impatient and like to buy things as soon as I see them), but I’ve found a few options online, in addition to a little decor inspiration:
Do you have any maps incorporated into your decor?
