Escape Style: Using Globes as Decor

House Tour Roundup

A former roommate of mine had a really cool inverse color globe that was also decades out of date. Nevertheless, that globe was a source of some of our most memorable conversations about hard-to-pronounce names, places that no longer exist and countries where we'd like travel. While some may think it's a fad, globes are a great source of inspiration and, as our house tours prove, an easy piece of décor.TOP ROW 1. Ashley Ann's $500 Light and Lovely Remodel 2.
