Map of Italy

How clever is this? Sicily looks like it's getting kicked behind the sofa.

I love this! Just think of how many different countries or states you could do this with. :)

Kendra said...

So cute! I would love to do that! I love those little coffee tables on top of coffee tables! What a sweet space :)
PIECE OF CAKE. PEACE OF MIND.

Jamie said...

OMG I want this for my house!!! I'm Italian and would LOVE to have this on display!

I may have to steal this idea. My man and I are going to Italy next summer-- this is such a fun way to display our adventure.

Cute idea!

P.S. When do we get to see photos of your bedroom? We know that Jenny recently gave it a face-lift :)

Elina said...

Ina said...

W l'Italia!
Però è inaccettabile che manchi la Sardegna!
Baci!!!!

Linda Lu said...

This is such a great idea!

Cara said...

Love this idea, I'd love to do this with my home state of MA!

Didi said...

um kinda like it but maybe the blk borders are throwing me off. maybe it would look better with no borders. clever idea though

Smith And Ratliff said...

Amazing!

Brigette Olmos-Arreola said...

love this idea, thought of doing something similar with old black and white movie stills, just don't have the wall space.

Sage Crown Parker said...

love it
want it
i wonder how big your wall would need to be to get everything-the world?
hhhmmmm.....

amy anne said...

Italy, outside (or inside) the box! Fantastic.

Joanna Goddard said...

Rachael, soon!!! we're going to take some photos next weekend, so i'll post about it in early november :) jenny is the best.

Wendy said...

Great idea!!! The possibilities are endless!

LatteLove said...

my husband loves maps and Italy has a dear place in our hearts - what fabulous idea! Thanks for sharing.

Hadia said...

The boot of Italy kicked Sicily all the way into the Mediterranean Sea. Spain felt Hungary, took a bite of Turkey, on a plate of China, all covered up in Greece. < We used to recite this in school! :D Plus, LOVE the idea for a map in parts!

Amanda said...

Ahh this is a brilliant idea! I studied abroad in Italy... I need to do this : )

Awesome idea!!! I've been standing and staring at my living room wall for the past 5 minutes thinking about how to pull of something like this at home. ;)

Love it!!

vanessa (the gal) said...

thanks for the inspiration!

As my background is Italian, I'm feeling like i NEED to have this in my home. What a unique idea, I just love it.

Melissa said...

This is such a great idea! I have been racking my brain trying to think of a unique idea to decorate our very tall, very dark stairwell wall. A framed vertical map or even a framed vertical collage of some sort would look snazzy. Thank you for sharing!

Chiara said...

Great Idea! But sardinia is lost and also a bit of Veneto and Trentino...

Lauren at TwIn Style said...

Ooh, I like this a lot. This would make a really good gift for someone on a smaller scale (or large as long as you knew them well enough to give them something that takes up a whole wall!).

Mieko said...

How clever? VERY! I love it.

wildchild said...

oh this is such a good idea! love how it looks.

p-l-a-i-d said...

This is such a creative idea! I would love to do this for a place that is really meaningful...like where I go on my honeymoon!

Very clever indeed. Genius idea. Why I never thought of this?

This is SO cool!

a displaced floridian said...

i love this. definitely using this inspiration.

Anonymous said...

Joanna, I love it, and you made the same observation as old saw:

Austria felt a little bit Hungary,
Dipped a bit of Turkey in a bit of Greece.
And long-legged Italy kicked poor Sicily
Into the Mediterranean Sea.

Hehe

Shannon said...

My favorite part of Italy, the island of Sardegna (which is not a small island by any means) isn't there! Sad.

annie said...

Love this...and so smart...especially your comment!

Adding the finishing touch said...

I love this. Very clever!

Lily M said...

OhI love this. I love maps but never thought of displaying one in such a dramatic manner.
