Decorating With Maps


It might come as no surprise to you that I would love the idea of decorating around the house with maps.  Well, of course I think maps are beautiful things full of adventure and exploration.  The wonder of maps keeps my whole family in awe of all that’s left to be discovered.  There’s no need to put them up on a shelf, just frame them and decorate your home!  I love this idea!!


Frame your favorite city or vacation spot in a beautiful heart! How classy and fun!  It would be a great conversation piece for sure.  I need a few of these around to make me smile.


What a great way to add a little privacy to your office door!  My family would probably want to add stars to the spots we’ve already traveled…lol!  It might not look quite as nice.


I would love, love, love it if someone would just give me a vintage map or two that they’ve had stashed away in a closet for 30 years or so!  Oh, a girl can dream, right?!

You can find all these beautiful map photos and really cool vintage globes on my Pinterest Boards.

Do you have any neat maps or globes around your house?

  1. I love vintage maps also! I try to incoporate them into pendant necklaces along with my photographic pendants, earrings, rings, Bobbi pins and clips. I really like the heart shape framed maps!

  2. I have an old Parisian map on my living room wall. And I love it. In my stash I also have an old Hawaiian topographical map, but it has yet to be framed.
