Test Title 1



{someday} a map room

my husband is crazy about maps.

point and case ---> while in boston, he had a ginormous (i mean 54"h x 72"w ) map of ethiopia framed. he carefully had to ride the t (boston's commuter rail) 30 minutes home from work carrying this wide load (oh - and it's GLASS not plexi).unfortunately we're a bit limited on wall space in our current apartment. so his prized maps didn't make the cut.

but someday ... wade will have his maps!

pottery barn had a little feature on wallpapering w/ maps in their catalog last month ... but it was a little too busy for me (okay a lot too busy for me):

then today apartment therapy did a feature on this martha's vineyard guestroom (courtesy of pearl street interiors). the walls were papered more than 25 years ago w/ an old book of maps. the faded maps & exposed beams make the room an absolute dream:

my hope to some day wallpaper a room w/ maps has been restored! and i know my husband would be smitten w/ the finished product!

(yes sometimes boys are smitten. you should see wade watch a george clooney movie!)

I am crazy about maps too! LOVE the look of the exposed beams and the maps together.

I'm hoping we can make it up to Martha's Vineyard this summer for a weekend. It's so close to where we live!

I LOVE IT!! I want a room like that too! Stephen would NEVER let me decorate the way I'd love to!! He thinks it looks silly if a room has mismatched furniture....I personally, adore accent pieces and shabby chic/french county...etc. Eh. You'll die when you see how UN decorated and boring my house is. :( But it's big and spacey and has potential. We'll finish it someday!
