Interior Design: Decorating With Maps as Artwork


Looking for an artwork alternative that is both inexpensive and unique? MAPS are an interesting choice that you can truly customize to fit your individual style and space.

One way to customize your map artwork is by considering maps that have personal meaning to you. For instance, if you vacationed in a certain country or destination that you loved, a map of that location could be a fabulous choice for framing. How about a map of  your neighborhood from the past? Visit Historic Map Works to get you started on your quest.

In addition, you can choose a style or age of map that best suits the color scheme of the room in which it is to be displayed. Antique or vintage maps may be found in more muted, neutral colors, whereas modern-day maps are more prevalent in brighter colors. Which option you should choose depends upon the feel and style of the space you are designing. Antique maps can be scored on Ebay or various other online shopping sources.

Maps are incredibly versatile artwork options with endless possibilities in the realm of decorating. From framed map sections to wallpapering entire walls, maps provide an elegant and universal design element to satisfy almost any space.  Take a look below at some inspirational photos….
