A former roommate of mine had a really cool inverse color globe that was also decades out of date.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.
