I love maps.
Where I am sitting right now is sometimes called the map room.
I love to know where I am going.
Navigation is my job on car trips,
but I am not so good on the iphone directions.
I much prefer the real thing.
You have got to admit that these furniture pieces covered in maps are very clever.
I have seen rooms wallpapered with old nautical maps.
And look at this room from the October 2010 House Beautiful; it was designed by Daniel Sachs. a bloomsbury life (one of my regular reads) showcased this room on her blog.

Imagine reading stories at bedtime with that expansive map on the wall.

I have seen trays decoupaged with more old maps.
Of course I have many maps on my walls,
but maps on furniture - this is a first.
Something I might attempt sometime
for a dear girl I know who is REALLY into maps too.
You got it - the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Maps are her latest dorm decoration.
