The Allen Home: Maps
I have been planning this post for some time now, ever since this post on design*sponge. After seeing maps and globes around so many other’s homes, I wanted to share mine! When Andy and I were planning our home together we wanted a travel theme with a heavy influence by Indiana Jones. So here’s a small home tour of the Allen Home’s maps…
Our first map we bought, from JC Penney. We were just about to move in to our first apartment and were so excited to find this HALF OFF!
A little globe Andy found at a garage sale sits atop our television cabinet.
A very cool find from another garage sale, it’s the same globe used in Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post.
A gifted map from our good friends BJ and Melissa Rice… thank you thank you thank you! This finds its home in our Pirates of the Caribbean themed office, which has not yet been fully developed.
And lastly, my mom buys us a vintage map wall calendar each year. Here’s March. See the pirate’s booty in the cabinet? Oh and my hoard of shot glasses?!
Thanks for touring the Allen Home!

Hi, I just found your blog by searching “Home” on wordpress & I loved this post! We have a “map” wall at our house too – (I also heart maps) – it’s cut into pieces & framed in unmatching frames. I’m planning on posting a picture of it sometime soon. Anyway, love your Indiana Jones inspiration – because guess what, I love Disneyland too! 🙂
Glad I found your blog today, I’ll be back!

Did you ever post a photo of your wall map? I want to see it!

Yes, I kinda have a photo of it. It’s in the background of the photo on this post:
Hopefully I’ll have a better one this winter. It’s just too hard to think about indoor stuff right now! 🙂
