Home Style: Map Wall Art
Hey ya'll! Happy March. If you didn't know, home decor is my second favorite pastime! We purchased our 1980s split-level home in 2013 and it WOW have things changed since we moved in. It was in awful shape when we purchased it, but month after month, year after year, project by project, we've whipped this little dud into a total stud! <<PS - I will work on a full home before and after at some point this year - but that would would require me to dig deep into my photo vault, so bear with me until then)>>
Our most recent reno probably made the biggest difference all around. Most split level homes have a super small and confined entryway - ours was no different (as seen in the "before" pics below). BUT, we were lucky, we happened to have extra space in our garage after we relocated a fireplace from the basement, we created space in the garage that allowed for us to add on an extra 6 feet of entry way space without changing the footprint of our home! To top it off we were finally able to find a way to get better direct access to our wonderful backyard with the new Anderson door.
What we were left with with a fantastic new space, that was lacking some personality. I found these amazing red rugs from a Target sample sale at their corporate store over the winter and the best part is that they are indoor/outdoor, so come summertime, I'm throwing these babies outside.
Now that the floor was in good company, the new main wall needed a statement. I was SOOOOO excited to come across this wonderful Minneapolis Map Poster from Modern Map Art! I got the 24x36 size; it came super quickly in the mail and I was able to find a great distressed frame from Michael's that works perfectly with it. All the posters from Modern Map Art are awesome, plus they have one for almost anywhere you might live and they come in a variety of colors other than black and white! They also have other fun things like pillows and phone cases inspired by the map of your preferred city. Our wall art has been the perfect addition to completing our space! I hope you find your perfect map :)
