Map Wall Art Inspiration

I’ve posted before on certain dream house must-haves (see: bookshelves, hidden gardens). Another item for the list is “maps as wall art.” Below are some of my favorite map decor images, including one from my house. I hope these will inspire you too!

I love this image, but can’t find the original source, even with TinEye. Please leave a comment if you know who to credit {found here, via pinterest}.

National geographic wall map

Oh Happy Day turned me on to this huge National Geographic world map, a bargain at $100. The National Geographic map store has many great choices, as well. Below is an “action shot” of the map, via Honestly, WTF.



A great idea from Better Homes & Gardens. I’m not sure where I found this first, but the first time I saw a credit for it was on Say Yes to Hoboken.


At $150, the Hammacher Schlemmer World’s Largest Write On World Map is another budget-friendly option. The bright colors make it popular for kids’ rooms; above, the map in a gym/office featured in New York Magazine {via swissmiss}, and on the cover of Room for Children {via Babble}.
