The World Traveler: Decorating with Maps & Globes

 

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).

    Great work! That is the type of information that are supposed to be shared around the web.
    Shame on the search engines for now not positioning this post upper!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something
    that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this in my search for something regarding this.

    Hey, I think your blog might be having brower compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but wyen opening
    in Inteernet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
