"the world is a book, and those who do not travel only read one page" -- st. augustine.

this quote has really resonated with me lately.  i've always been one who likes to explore, but lately i have had a bad case of wanderlust.  as we plan a short vacation to the west coast, i cannot help but dream of what's next.  i want to go everywhere, and see everything!

since travel (to this extent) is not possible right now, i thought i'd share some beautiful ways to bring this travel bug home.  world maps are classic, simple and beautiful.  the perfect touch for a wandering heart.

i've rounded up some amazing ways to display maps in your home.

nothing looks more classic than a beautiful map in a frame.


i love how the maps have revamped a simple piece of furniture.

globes look great on their own, or clustered together, and the come in just about every size and colour you could imagine.


talk about a statement piece!  blowing the map up to wall size makes for a stunning focal point in any room.

if you are not able to display maps in large scale, try downsizing to useful everyday items.
