Take me away....
I am a bit fascinated by maps...always have been, and never grown out of it. I think it's the youthful backpacker that is still remnant in me .. hidden beneath the domesticity, motherhood and corporate-ness of these last twenty years. I'm dreaming of being carefree, with my backpack and passport and hiking boots and one of our many Lonely Planet guides and hitting the road for a few months....(actually I used to always back pack with my water colours and my camera also and barely any clothes). Well with two primary school aged kids and a mortgage and upcoming renovations and a business to run open ended roaming of the world is not going to happen so I'll have to settle for some map gazing....
....I especially love these big colourful maps with bright blue oceans and green lands. So I'm a bit in love with a map feature wall. I am toying up with using one in my son's bedroom when we renovate.
A friend recently bought an amazing house and her son's bedroom already had a huge map wall and another chalkboard wall. Talk about not needing to decorate!
Here are some other examples I've found on the internet. Credits can be found by clicking on the photo.
So a lot more colourful than anything I currently have in my house but I think for a little boys room it's just perfect. If you are interested in buying a map wall mural in Australia here are some sources I have found (but not recommending or sponsored by)
What do you think of this as a decorative feature wall?
Does it make you want to book a holiday?
