I have a wall-hanging-phobia. I usually just leave stuff stacked on the ground, or leave walls empty. After spending a few (COLD) nights in the guest room during the winter blackout I realized that the blank wall in there needed addressing.
So months later, I added some maps (get it? Maps? Addressing? hahaha)
I got a bunch of vintage maps from family a while back, and I love the character and colors. I chose three (Texas and Michigan to represent our roots, and Washington for obvious reasons) and popped them into Ikea frames (assisted by the lovely Kat, shown here) and hung them up before I could think about it too much.
It doesn't show in these pictures, but I love the feel of the guest room now. It's got this minimalist, relaxing feel. (Which Cooper also enjoys.)
I also added a topographical survey to the nightstand.
Remember the decorative fix for the closet door? It's still hanging in there- and it makes me happy.
