Decorating With Maps

I've always loved looking at maps and globes. I think using them in your home decor makes for interesting eye candy.  Here are some stunning examples.

  I found this fabric below recently down at the Kravet showroom in the Dec. Center.  Wouldn't it make a great shade in a study or boy's room like the room above?


Found this nautical map wallpaper too that will possibly be used in a client's upstairs bath.

I think maps give a richness and depth to an interior.

The Dransfield and Ross map is amazing. I also love the Peter Dunham and Thomas O'Brien maps. I love them all.
I have always loved globes, and these maps are perfect wall coverings.
Thank you for sharing, Carla.
