Using Maps in Children's Spaces

The White House has a Map Room so why shouldn't yours. Maps in children's spaces do double duty as decor and educational tools and we're always happy to see them pop up in our tours of kids' spaces. Hang them on the walls as art or on a larger scale like wallpaper or get creative like these fabulous map roller shades.

Five Great "Map Rooms":
Meg's Kid-Friendly Vintage Chic Playroom
Emmett's Room Makeover
Sam's Roadmap for Adventure
Simon's Room
Wille's Bedroom
