Project Process: Hunting for Vintage Maps

November 12th, 2013

I’ve been on the search for vintage maps lately for my own house as well as a project. We have a couple spaces in a stair hall that needs large art, but there are so many other spaces in the house to work on first that investing in art doesn’t make sense now. Hence the idea of large, oversize art that’s creative and affordable = vintage maps!

I hit the jackpot lately at one of my quick stops into Diamonds & Rust in Beverly. Map heaven! I pretty much asked to borrow all of them. Totally worthwhile. I’ll share my house progress later (hoping to get some special picture lighting on each map this week!)

So far on the Essex house we did settle on a cool map of North America for the top of the stairs, in it’s original metal casing that the maps rolled back up into and we’re thinking about a map of France for the stair hall – map or a grid of family photos. Hm …. the decisions!
