Know Your Waters: 10 Rooms with Nautical Map Decor
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
My favorite subject in grade school was geography, which probably explains why I love vintage maps. Lately, though, I have been drawn to nautical charts (there is definitely something about getting to know your surrounding waters). Here are 10 spaces showing wall-hung nautical maps.

"It's both decorative and functional"). Above: The interior is painted a uniform shade of white to create a sense of airiness in photographer Paul Massey's Seaside Loft in Cornwall, England .
