Decorating with Maps and a Giveaway

As a kid I used to collect maps of all the places I had been to. Growing up now into interior design, I see maps as great decorative objects. Because maps have such graphic quality with their sweeping lines, color blocking, and typographic elements, they will work so well decoratively. Map on textile, or the so-called "tourist textile", has been popular for centuries. The use of these map tea towels or napkins are unlimited in today's decor. Just take a look at the following:

Mat them: unexpected but totally works right? It complements the picture by reminding you where it was taken.

Frame them: they seriously work in any room of a house and make such a worldly statement in the space.

Remember I framed Alanna Cavanagh's tea towel for my kitchen. I am still loving it.
Hang them: or how about turning them into a roman shade?
