I love maps (the Historian in me), could look at them for hours and adore homes that feature maps in the decorating...
I tore out the picture of this boy's room by Barbara Westbrook that was featured in Traditional Home several years ago.
I found a map at a cute boutique (I wish I could remember the name of the shop) when visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Birmingham. Actually, it was high-end gift wrap. I purchased two knowing that I would use one in my son's room on the wall behind/above his bed.
Touch of Europe. The best part is that these "maps" are $4.50 each. I've even heard of people using this gift wrap to wallpaper their walls.
Think of the possibilities. You could order and frame some of the "Flora and Fauna" pictures for instant wall decor!
After I originally posted this blog, I heard from Leigh, a friend of mine, who blogged about about wallpapering her son's room. Way to go Leigh!! You've got to see this:
You can see the project in its entirety on this blog: Impress Your Kids
I'll post more pictures after I add more maps to W.'s wall!
