I have no idea how it happened, but I have a scary number of friends who are simply crazy about maps. I'm a super home-body, so really it is quite strange that so many people I know love to dream about far off places. Maybe it has something to do with our long winters... So, this room is for all of you out there who are crazy and like to travel....a room wallpapered in maps. The beams are all pickled, which makes me love them. And I really could find many good uses for those adorable lamps.
