Object of Desire: Map of France

I’ve been on a bit of a home-decor mission lately. I’m totally re-doing my entire apartment one paycheque at a time. Last month I finally hung that gallery wall I’ve been talking about for years (pictured below). It turned out quite well, but I’m still on the look out for…

I’ve been on a bit of a home-decor mission lately. I’m totally re-doing my entire apartment one paycheque at a time. Last month I finally hung that gallery wall I’ve been talking about for years (pictured below). It turned out quite well, but I’m still on the look out for great prints and unique art. Who knew it would be so hard to get an acquired look in less than a month?

I’ve got it all, though – old-timey butterfly prints, old posters from the 1960s, quirky travel brochures from Sea World and homemade art, but I felt like I was missing something. Then it dawned on me: I need a map. But not just any old map – well, actually any old map would be perfect. I want that vintage look. Problem is I’m cheap.

Luckily for me, I spotted this five-dollar sheet of wrapping paper at Steeling Home. The paper is beautiful quality, and the map seems accurate. It seems like a shame to use it for wrapping a present. I’d give the paper itself as a present. There are other charming prints available, too – a chart of butterflies, other maps and a human anatomy diagram. It perfectly fits a 40 cm X 60 cm Ribba frame from Ikea.
