The beauty of a world wall map lies in its versatility as a decorative device. Just as we populate our living spaces with couches, tables, seats, lighting fixtures, and art, a world wall map can bring a real sense of depth and distinction to a room that otherwise lacks some kind of worldly character. Our homes are reflections, in the end, or our personality, our mien, our way of living. They are where the deepest desires for our lives are brought to reality in wood, leather, stone, and paper. The function of a space reflects its mood, which influences our own. How we decorate our spaces, to a certain degree, determines who we are.Continue reading
Picture a setting. That setting could be anyplace and incorporate any sense of style into its design. What impacts the mood of that setting with the strongest pronunciation? Is it the furniture? Perhaps the architecture of the room and the color and depth of the wood used in the molding and trim. Do the wall hangings have the strongest impression on the mood of a place? What about the wall hangings? Perhaps it’s the very color of the paint on the walls that lends its strongest impression. People do spend a great deal of time mixing and matching pigments and deliberating over eggshell and semi-gloss paints. If it’s not the paint, it must be the wall art or pieces of decor that have been carefully chosen to accent a place?

When we’re designing interior spaces, whether they are in our homes, offices, schools or even elsewhere, we pay quite a lot of attention to the furniture, the decor and the fixtures that we include in these spaces. They will affect what we do in these spaces as well as when and how we do it. No one would design a living area without a couch or at least some chairs to serve as sitting spaces. Similarly, we usually incorporate tables and other places where we can place our belonging or enjoy a refreshment. These fixtures affect not only the function of a space but also its mood, and actually, have quite a profound effect on the moods we are going for when we design space. The walls are another component we attend to when we are designing a space, and while it’s true that we spend a lot of time considering different tones and textures of paint, or even the wall art we intend to hang in a space, it’s rare that we consider anything to adorn our walls other than paint or some types of hanging.
It might not be apparent at first thought, but there is some real versatility and utility of a customizable world map, not only in how many things people can use them for but in how many people use them. If you think a map is a map, it would probably surprise you how many people not only use maps in their professions but also how many different types of people collect maps or make them fixtures of decor. There’s no debate about it, one of the most personalized gifts out there is a customizable wall map, and it brings a lot of usefulness with it, even if it’s only a decoration.

Just about 2 hours from Alpensia Resort, one of the main locations of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, a great mystery has formed over the past 1,300 years. Continue reading
