Totally no recollection where I snagged this picture, but I love it. Great idea for a wall in a play room or a children's bed room. Ummmm...even a living room. I rather fancy this a lot. Maps are so exciting...they get me dreaming and scheming about adventures in far off places.
We still have a blank white wall in our baby's nursery... still no real plan on what the heck to do. As you have never been in my home, you would know that I have something against plain white walls....every wall in my home is covered. I've tried to do the minimalist thing...I fail every time. I love being surrounded by visual "pretties."
My heart it still so in love with this whimsical ( yet super pricey and significantly smaller!) world map by Julie Mercier. I think it would look smashing in our baby's room.

One of the biggest reasons I was psyched about moving to upstate New York was being within a couple hours of New York City...as I LOVE New York City. Who doesn't? I love the museums. The pizza. The architecture. The lights. The parks. I could go on infinitely. Too bad residency has kept me busy almost every single weekend of the last 10 months...only made it into the city once...which is actually quite a tragedy.
One year I traveled into the city over a dozen times...which is a lot for a girl who lived in Arizona (though I was living in Rhode Island at the time!). I think this is a fun print by Julie Mercier; certainly not the most sophisticated portrayal of NYC, yet it is a fun and bright and lively interpretation. I am a fan of Miss Mercier...remember here?
