Who said that the living quarters should be pasted with standard wallpaper with a geometric pattern or one of the walls should be framed with a picture of nature? There is no limit to the imagination of designers and manufacturers of finishing materials. For example, now it is fashionable to decorate the walls of office and residential premises with maps: geographic, political, physical, and also parts thereof. Interior designers assure that this brings a spirit of adventurism into the house, encourages them to travel around the world, helps children learn geography, and gives official institutions a strict business look.
The card will be in place in any room
Do not think that the map is appropriate only in the office, where it tunes for work, helps to focus. It can be relevant everywhere. Framed with expensive baguette, decorate the living room. Simple, but bright is useful for a nursery. In the dining room it will be appropriate to look at the map of the world with recipes of national dishes. And in the kitchen, you can draw pictures from the satin hinged lockers and even chairs. The card can even decorate the door with glass inserts.
Of course, you should take into account the style in which the room is decorated.
Ideal will be a map in the interior, thought out in a colonial or ethnic style. If your bedroom, for example, is made using African motifs, the map of Africa will be very welcome. If you prefer Japanese minimalism, decorate the bedroom walls with a map of this country.
White walls, typical of the Mediterranean style, combine with a large map of the world, made in color denim. This will add brightness without violating the style.
Excellent geographic map for the design of a child's room in a marine style. Add to it globes, images of the wheel, anchors - your sailor will be delighted!
We agree that the decor of the cards is unusual enough, so be extremely attentive. Do not overload the interior, into which this element is inscribed, with unnecessary details. The basic shades of furniture and draperies combine with the colors of the image. Designers recommend giving preference to two-color options in pastel colors - so the room will look more spacious.
Decoration and study guide: a map in the nursery
The world map in the interior of the nursery can be of different types:
- political, divided into states;
- Physical, showing plains, hills, rivers, oceans;
- Thematic, for example, with information about the animals of a particular territory;
- stylized vintage;
- a map of the starry sky, etc.
Not only are very interesting, but also the most informative for the child of the map of the native land, the city in which he lives, even the subway scheme with the designation of stops. This "manual" will teach you to navigate quickly in space. Any of these cards will serve the child well.
How best to decorate a child's room with maps? Immediately come to mind photo wallpapers. They are easy to paste one or, if the map is very large, two or three walls in the room. Take care only that the colors on the wallpaper and glue are hypoallergenic and do not damage the health of the child. Allow him to use the bright buttons to indicate some places on the map.
You will certainly please an already grown-up child, inviting him to design his own home. Create together an original map of the world, filling the contours of the continents, painted on the wall, with figures of animals and birds that live in these places. You can cut them out of magazines and books.
If the walls of the room are monotonous, the contours of the parts of the world with a minimum of notation will be interesting to look at them. The effect will create a selection of colors, which will be painted each of them.
Cards can decorate the entire children's office: notebooks, diary, folders for papers, cups for pens, pencils and markers. And you can just throw a carpet on the floor in the form of a map, and let the child from infancy "travel" around the world!
How to use the map in the interior?
You can simply hang a large map in a suitable place, for example, in the living room next to the bookshelves. Or at the head of the bed, adding souvenirs with a touch of exotics and old suitcases near. Such a variant of placement in the office or office is appropriate. But, you see, it's not very decorative.
Then it's worth imagining. To map the map artificially and place it in a suitable frame. Cards, as if inherited from their ancestors, will
give romance, create a vintage effect. And you can cut a map of the continent or any one state into parts, each frame, and on the wall almost unite - it will turn out unexpectedly and interestingly.
More traditional option - photo wallpapers of the world map in the interior. They are infinitely diverse. Can represent all continents together. They can - some one part of the world. Can - individual countries.
In a cozy corner of the living room, a large map in the entire wall can be a background for a TV, for example. In the bedroom - replace the headboard or decorate the wall opposite the bed. For a winter garden, you can pick up a physical map with a relief image of the irregularities of the earth's crust. Yes, there are few decent options! If the wall-papers completely closed one of the walls, the rest should be left unicolored.
And why exactly wallpaper? Let's consider other options. Geographical maps in the interior are very versatile.
How do you like the idea of flooring with an accurate image of the continents and the names of geographical objects: countries, cities, rivers and mountains? No less impressive is the stretch ceiling of the bedroom with a map of the world or a single country on it. Or an embroidered picture-tapestry, accurately reproducing the contours of the continents.
Even more creative is the option, when on the wall a marker is drawn around the contours of the continents, and then the interior space is decorated with a mosaic or painted with different colors.
If there is no desire to mount a huge map on the wall, you can use its components for decorating furniture. The easiest option is to glue an old card on the coffee table and place the tempered glass on top. With the help of decoupage techniques - when images are pasted onto the surface - you can update the old furniture. Take, for example, the chest of drawers. Boxes glue fragments of the map, and the rest of the chest remain the same color. Make sure it's simple and attractive.
The owners of the apartment, who have repeatedly visited the travels, have the right to cut out from the geographical map those countries that they honored with their presence, paste the cuttings on the cardboard and post the posters in a convenient place.
Mapged boxes can serve as a storage place for household items and at the same time decorate the interior.
And how interesting is the bed linen with a picture that repeats the image of the world map! With success, you can also apply upholstery furniture with a geographical print. Have you ever seen a lamp made from a geographic globe? Impressions unforgettable!
At first glance, the world map is not a very decorative element for interior decoration. But with good taste and desire, using this detail, you can perfectly organize the room space, make it original, modern, unique. The map will constantly remind us of the beauty and fragility of our planet, to adjust to its knowledge.
