Vintage maps, used as decoration, can be very attractive in any interior. They become a focal point in any room. The oldest ones are the most interesting as the names of the countries and some borders may have changed since then! They are very rare, often unique so by the way really valuable in any collection.
Most of the time people put them in a bedroom, but you can also fit them in any living room, dining room or hallway.
Be inspired by our picks and let me know which one is your favorite?

I don’t know which one I prefer, the vintage school desk with the gorgeous chairs or the Vintage school map. For sure, the green color of the map match perfectly with the white wall and the brown desk.
If you want to play with colors, those following two are just great! The red color is dominant on the first one so they add some red retro benches and a retro white table. Have you seen the bunny?
On that one, the green color is dominant so they found a vintage green trunk to match perfectly! Brilliant idea to follow if you find some maps with bright colors. You can even make them match with chairs or just accessories on your console or table. Let’s give it a try? First find the map!
