Big World Map in the Guest Room

I’m always drawn to interiors that feature maps. It’s partly that I love the way maps look and partly that I find traveling to be both incredibly thrilling and terrifying (the good, push-me-out-of-my-comfort-zone kind of terrifying). Seeing a gorgeous room with great map on the wall gives me goose bumps. Did anyone else see Jenny Brandt’s Design*Sponge sneak peek? Her map-walled dining room blew me away. Thankfully she shared her map source, and I knew one would be perfect in our guest room!

    I love reading maps. I’ve always had an imagination when it comes to reading maps, and I always enjoyed reading the instruction manuals on role playing adventure games as a kid (and still now). I have a form of synesthesia that gives location a far stronger emotion than normal, and maps have a lot to do with it.

    Absolutely wonderful Amanda!!! Map in a guest room is a great idea. Just looking at a map will urges everyone to travel and visit new places.

    Gorgeous!! Is the map wallpaper? How did you attach it? I would love to do the same in our den but I don’t want to apply the map as wallpaper.

      It came with glue to attach it like wallpaper, but I just hung it up with some clear thumbtacks.
