You don’t have to be a world traveler to reap the charming benefits of map decor. An inexpensive and easily personalized way to add character to a room, maps can bring nostalgia and daydreams to an otherwise uninspiring blank wall.
When paired with a bold wall color, black and white maps produce a graphic and typographic effect. A clean arrangement of identical frames is key to creating a cohesive gallery of vintage maps.

In a vintage-chic display, this large world map provides a context for the seasoned traveler’s decor. Modernized by crisp white and ocean blue walls, the room is full of adventurous accents.
The feminine colors in this map resemble a vibrant abstract painting. Juxtaposed with a desk space, the map flawlessly blends geography and artistry.
