There’s just something so nostalgic about a world map pinned to a wall or a vintage globe on a bookshelf. Decor Mapping is a great and inexpensive way to decorate but it can be tricky to incorporate it into your home effectively.

Apart from it stirring a sense of adventure in the home, maps are the perfect way to create an accent wall and make a statement. Here’s a round-up of our favourite finds:

If you’re up for some DIY, maps don’t need to be limited to framed artworks… try covering door frames, head boards, splash board sin kitchens or cover old coasters for a quick change. Have you included maps in your home? We’d love to see what you’ve done… Tweet us on @Elle_Deco to show us your style.
