We love using maps, globes and nautical charts to decorate our beach cottage home. They are an inexpensive way to create wall art as well as add some nautical flair. The lovely muted colors printed on many maps and charts are perfect for a beach interior design.
Since garage sale season has started, make sure you keep your eye out for old maps. Even if they have tears in them, they can easily be decoupaged onto furniture or accent pieces…think outside of the box and get creative!
Many of our coastal sponsors sell home goods with nautical charts on them (check out the shopping resource at the bottom of the article).
