I am obsessed with shabby chic so I really wanted to base this room off of that. Then one day while I was looking at rooms on here I came acrossed one that had this very same map in their nursery and I fell in love with it! I asked her where she had got it and so very kindly told me! My husband teaches social studies so we thought this would be really fun to have in his room. The room is very small so I had to be carefull with such a large map not to go over board with any other print. I love pastel greens and blues and also taupe. I think they brought the room all together perfect and we couldnt be more happy with the way it turned out.
