We arent planning to have any sort of nautical theme for our home, but we are quite obsessed with hanging an oversized map in our living room on the large blank wall behind the couch. I searched and scoured the internet for a map large enough to suit our needs, and couldnt find anything in the color that would work for less than $2000 (seriously, its freakin paper!). Luckily, my in-laws had a large assortment of maps in their storage that they were nice enough to hand over to us. Aside from a HUGE world map that will one day live above the couch, we came across a copy of a hand drawn map of Boston from the late 1700s. Pretty cool I must say. That baby will be framed and in our office, as a little reminder of the city we love the most.
