Well, it's official. I'm hopping on the globe-loving blog bandwagon.
I've already shown my love for maps (both large and small) and state-related art, but until now I haven't had a globe, though I've been searching for an affordable one for the past few months. After all, they're all around the blog world, looking fun-yet-classic in decor.
Katie from Bower Power had a cluster in her son's nursery, and eventually hung them from his ceiling (and PS, how cool is that teepee she made him?!):
Young House Love have a few around their home, including an adorable white one with a wooden whale base:
And one of my favorite thrift and vintage blogs, A Living Space, has a lovely grouping in their living room:
So I knew that I wanted to make a globe a member of our decor family. Little did I know that I would find two for what I consider steals--$14 apiece (compared to the $25+ I'd seen all summer as I thrifted).
One has a lovely wooden leg and the USSR marked on it, with continents in shades of brown, green, and yellow:
Here's a close up of that leg. I love the tone of the wood.
I put her next to our green chair and rustic-y console table in the living room.
My other globe find was more modern (no USSR or Berlin wall) and has an off-white/pastel color scheme and a really cool bronze spine and foot!
Someday I'd like to create a cluster of globes like the ones I linked to above, but for now these spots work!
What about you? Any map-related purchases of late?
