Expand Your Horizons Using Map Wallpaper and Decals

Who is not fascinated by a world map? It indicates faraway places and new adventures. Decorating with map wallpaper allows your mind wander to a big scale. A map is an proper addition to a lot of rooms, from a kid’s bedroom (where it could double as a learning device) into a grownup office.

Wall-size maps come in a variety of styles, from a classic blue, green and brownish relief look to colorful, graphic designs. Patient DIYers can also try wallpapering a room in real maps, but that requires time and skill to get right. Nautical maps are also a wall.

Listed below are eight rooms and four papers and stickers which chart a new class in decorating.
