I’m very proud to say that I’ve lived in more than one city. Maybe you have too, but I feel like I meet more and more people who have never left home. It’s their normal, that’s fine. But my normal was always moving every few years to new cities. No, my Dad isn’t in the Army which is always the first question after I do my 30-second schpeal on where I’m from. He just took opportunities that were worth the move. This resulted in moving to several different places like Montreal, Port, and Atlanta. I’d like to add more cities to my list, but I’m pretty content at the moment with the day job, the blog and having family a 30 minute drive away. But I’d like to end back up in NYC at some point, maybe live in LA before I get too old, and definitely visit more places and check off the good ‘ol Bucket List.
I thought these interiors were beyond inspiring to help check off more cities on your list when you travel. Cross them off on the map while you go, see where you should visit next and get inspired. I love this idea of using a gigantic map as wallpaper. Truly a centerpiece and talking point. The way to do this the right way though is to stick to colors that match your home. If these were blue and green classic maps, it just wouldn’t have the same effect. Instead, these are muted, match the vibe and colors of the space and simply work. Keep that in mind when adding a map to your space so that it feels cohesive!
PS removable wallpaper is such an easy, non-permanent way to change up your space. This is ideal for renters. Add an accent wall to your office, or bedroom, with removable wallpaper. Just take it down before you move and there’s no damage to the walls. Plus, it’s one last wall to paint back when you move!
