Last year I was fortunate enough to visit London, England – my first time overseas! At a London toy shop (or should I say “shoppe”), I bought a roll of wrapping paper with a vintage map of London streets printed on it. When I came home, I decided to frame it in a vintage gilt frame that I had and hung it in my bedroom:
Framed Wrapping Paper – Repro Vintage London Street Map
I’ve really loved having this lovely piece of art to help me remember my wonderful trip abroad. Recently, I found a fabulous source for decorating with maps of the special places in our lives.
This site offers affordable reproduction historic maps of almost any state, city, or country you might be looking for, like this 1800’s map of Ireland.
Honor your hometown or even the history of the early-American railroad with reproduction cartography:
You can score a giclee cotton canvas map (no frame needed!) for your family room for under $100. Check out this post for more ideas about decorating with maps.
