Eco-Style - Mapping Your Decor

I didn't have time to write a full eco-style post today - too much to do with eveything happening at once! Anyway, I was looking up using old maps in your home decor, and found some fabulous photos. I've been looking for one to put in my office for some time - they have such an old-world feel that I really enjoy. These photos also have a more traditional feel to them, to give a little relief from the modern/retro theme on Pure Green lately. As always, repurposing something old into your home is always an eco choice.

I love the old school-room look of a roll-down map like this one.

Or, use roll-down maps as blinds - great in a cottage!

Keeping maps all in the same colour tone avoids an overly busy look.

Add privacy to an office or guest room.

The cool blue tones of this map make it well suited to a seaside home or cottage.
