Whether you consider yourself a world traveller or not, most would agree that the use of world maps in interior decor make wonderful features that fill our homes with mystical discovery of far away places.

Here are 5 World Map Decor Ideas that work well as ornamental pieces of art in our home:

1. Framed 'Where I Have Been' Travel Map

a) Framed Scratch Map

Perhaps you are a long time globe trotter and would like to display an atlas with pinpoints of travels to distant places. If so, a framed scratch map of the world by Australian Geographic might work for your study wall.

Scratch Map of the World


A world map is covered with a gold surface, underneath, each country is separately coloured. Scratch off the surface, and you can keep a record of your travel destinations.

b) Wall Mounted Cork Board Map

Alternatively, a good old fashioned cork board with assorted colour pins indicating countries of travel would work well mounted on your wall.

This Luckies of London Corkboard Map (seen above) is available to buy through Amazon.

2. World Map Coasters

Perhaps you are more of an armchair traveller and would like to see countries of the world as you devour a cup of tea and watch a travel show! If so, a set of world map coasters would look great on your side table.

This set of four world map coasters (seen above) is available to buy through Not On The HighStreet. Alternatively, you could try making your own using an old atlas and existing coasters, using this tutorial.

3. World Map Vintage Desk

If you are a fan of vintage wares, and would like to educate your children with global knowledge, then you might like to get hold of an old school desk complete with imbedded world map, a popular mid century piece of child's furniture.

I found this desk (seen above) in an antique centre, you can also keep an eye on etsy and eBay for similar pieces available to buy online. Alternatively you could just buy an ordinary desk, and attach a world map desk pad (like this one) on top of it.

4. Globe Lamp Shade

If you like the idea of a worldy lamp in your home, you might like to have a go at a DIY project, cutting a globe in half to re-purpose into an effective looking lampshade, which would look great above a dining table.

Although if you would rather buy a pre-made globe lamp shade (seen above), you can do so via Red Zebra Designs.

5. World Map Feature Wall

Perhaps you might like to decorate a feature wall of your home that could work for any room, depending on your chosen style of decal or wallpaper. Here are some ideas:

a) Peace Love World Map

c) Classic World Map

I am sure you will agree that decorating your home with world map decor not only creates an interesting focal point, but also acts as a daily reminder of just how grand our planet really is, and everything found within it.
