Vintage Maps & Charts

March 27, 2012

20120327-072413.jpg I wrote a few weeks back of the windows we refreshed with vintage maps and charts. I had promised to fill you in a bit, once we got all of them rolled and tagged properly.

20120327-072717.jpg These really are such gems. With dates ranging from early 1920 to the 60’s, and locations from around the globe.

20120327-073025.jpg I think they work great unframed and just pinned to the wall. That is what we have done with similar maps at our week-end place on Vashon, and that has worked perfectly.

20120327-073258.jpg They would also be exceptional framed. These are the 2 windows at the Home store that we are currently displaying a few in. I love how the sun created a reflection of the ‘fine home’ logo onto the wall over the maps–a bit like a watermark.
