Awhile ago, I wrote a blog post entitled “Map It Out”, showcasing ideas to utilize maps in your interior spaces. Now, since every shop I visit and every page I turn in decorating magazines features globes, all kinds and styles of globes, I figured it was time to round out my orbital perspective. In searching the web, I discovered quite a few DIY variations on the plain old circa 1930’s globe,
and hundreds of ways to use them as your decorating inspiration. I love all of the smaller globes inside the table base, with the larger ones scattered outside. Escaped!
I discovered stand-alone globes that are painted
and lighted (this one has DIY instructions…)
and chalkboarded too!
This child’s room becomes a bit more sophisticated using globes on the ornate mantel. Oh, the places you’ll go, little man!
I love taking room color inspiration from globes- the colors of the earth are so pretty!
This organizing wall becomes a feature with maps and globes as the background.
Take a look at these breathtaking hand-decorated globes by Wendy Gold on ImagineNations on Etsy.com.
This Flower Power globe would be stunning in any interior!
Globes, both old and new, are available in all sizes and colors. The muted tones in the space below blend perfectly with the vintage sepia globe tones.
Whereas, this colorful, eclectic space takes its cue from the multi-colored, more modern globe on the side table.
Just remember, you don’t have to be a world traveler to look like one! Just grab a globe, add some pins and you’re off on a virtual tour! Have a time-travelin’ Tuesday, everyone!
