While relaxing out on Fire Island, I've had more time than usual to explore design blogs, catalogs and pinterest boards. I thought it would be fun to look in some of these room settings for maps and charts similar to ones that I currently have for sale.
The antique school map of Italy in this image from a recent design sponge post was actually purchased from me last winter at the Brooklyn Flea. Supply your own adorable cat.
For a similar look- especially for a very tall space like the stairwell wall of this brownstone, try this generously-sized school map of Greece currently for sale.
From the flouncy, pretty, bourgeois boho Sundance Catalog
Try decorating a home office space with this chalk board map I have for sale. One of the nice things about it is it's double-sided, so when you get tired of the U.S. you can flip it and see the world. Also fun to plot your travels on.
Another gem from a design sponge post, we have this really cool German chart of the moon…
While not strictly lunar, this 1940s Mexican Cosmography chart would also look lovely and restful above a bed.
Well….I could do this all day- it's pretty fun, but just one more. I like the way the map is taken off the metal bracket- partially unrolled and hung with a ribbon. You could accomplish a similar look with the very long U.S. map for sale in my etsy shop.
Maybe just one more….can't stop….it's addictive…another dining room.
A good substitute for the colors and scale of that map might be….
