Get the Look: Maps

There are lots of maps for sale online, from huge murals to dainty vintage dandies. You could easily cover your walls in the stuff. Or just opt for a map wallpaper pattern, which is perhaps more pulled together but not nearly as interesting. There are also plenty of map inspired accessories you could scatter about. Here is a sampling of the ones I found…
