Framed Maps?

Images via Pinterest

I'm really loving the idea of framed maps at the moment and have actually gone as far as to buy a map print for my flat. I first got the idea when I saw this in Ikea, I can't really afford to spend £100 on a picture though, plus its huge and we wouldn't really have anywhere to put it. It's not quite vintage enough looking either, so I forgot about that idea for a while until some map print wrapping paper caught my eye in Waterstones. For some reason I didn't buy it when I first saw it and I really wish I had now. I wanted a map of the world print but when I returned to buy it a few weeks later they only had a map of London left. I bought it anyway though, now I just need to buy a frame. I think I'm just going to go for a plain black one to match the other ones in our flat, I love some of the fancy ones above but I reckon they'd be pretty expensive in the size I need.

David doesn't seem so keen on my framed map idea, I think he thinks I'm a bit weird. He did say he didn't mind me putting it up though as long as he can have a TV for the bedroom - well if he's paying!!?

P.S. Don't you just love those heart shaped maps - I think it would be so sweet to put a map of somewhere special to you in one of those frames.

Speak soon. X


  1. brilliant idea!

    its great to have hearts with maps of the places you visited!

  2. I absolutely love this idea! Going to get on eBay now looking for heart frames like the last picture xx

  3. I absolutely adore this idea! I done it ages ago with a postcard of London I bought whilst I was there on a visit, purely to fill a photoframe up before I got images printed but decided it was so cute in itself, really want some little heart photo frames though! xxxx

  4. I love the whole map thing. I wouldn't ever buy one because they are stupidly expensive in my opinion, but I'm definitely liking the idea of a bit of DIY!
    The heart shaped frames are so cute, love them!

  5. I love the frames in the last picture! :) x
