There’s something so appealing about a vintage map or globe in an interior. It connotes travel, history, countless stories… A well-worn globe or map also gives even the simplest room a jolt of personality. Take a look at these examples.

These home offices I found on Kamela Cody’s (from Modern Girl Style) Flickr photostream.

Globe

This is from Marusica‘s photostream. I love the contrast of red and blue. And, look, a rolled up map as well as a globe!

This is by painter and jewelry maker, Amy Gross. You can see her work at her web site or Etsy store.

Automatism had this shot in a collection of adorable tablescapes. I recently discovered this blog and its fabulous images.

This is from Suzanne at S.HOPtalk. The maps look great against the green walls.

More green and red. The nice thing about maps is you can pick any color from the map and accentuate it with furniture and it looks amazing. Like this room from PoeticHome, another rcent blog discovery.
