With travel being so accessible now you can see much of the world yourself and experience it first hand – but why not bring some of this home in your decorating? Maps are a fantastic way to add life and colour to space and are easily assessable for decorating projects. Really, you have to go no further than your car glove box for this one!
There are many ways to use maps in decorating, though my favourite is a whole wall done as wall paper. While you can actually order wallpaper printed as a map why not make it more interesting and fill your walls with places you have actually been to? All you need is wallpaper paste and a stack of maps.
If a whole wall is a little ambitious for you, try a few smaller projects done with typical, everyday maps that look spectacular such as the boxes from IKEA Hacker.
