CanvasPop Blog - The world is your canvas


Decorating with Maps

Inspire by CanvasPop is a weekly blog series showcasing world-class décor ideas, products, art, or photography. Check back on Wednesdays for more inspiration!

Over the last year, we’ve noticed a huge home décor trend popping up everywhere and we’re really digging it! We love the idea of taking world maps, vintage maps or even nautical maps and turning them in to some very cool décor pieces. Make this idea personalized by choosing a map of your favourite country, dream travel destination, or home town. There are thousands of map images available through stock sites, or visit your local archives for some inspiration!

This is definitely our favorite idea, and one that will make the biggest statement in any room. Turn the map of your choice into some cool custom canvas art for your bedroom, living room, or even dining room. If vintage is your thing, one of our designers can even work their magic and add a cool effect to give the image that perfect look!

We really like the idea of incorporating maps into your everyday, ordinary décor to make it extraordinary! From dressers, to lamps, to coffee tables – there are tons of possibilities. Here are few really fun ideas we found, some of which are even DIY.
