I’ve always wanted a nice big vintage map in my home and I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate with it. I love old elements mixed with new modern decor. That’s why our handbuilt minimalistic sofa table & mud cloth pillows, and rustic “M” blended perfectly with the theme I wanted.
When Danielle from Global Gallery messaged me and asked if I was interested in collaborating with them I jumped at the opportunity. I picked out this amazing print by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway ( A Map of British Columbia ). As soon as we got it, Glen got to building a frame for it. This was SUPER simple. We just stapled the print on the back of the frame. You could inset it, but come on, who has that kind of talent?
Also, sorry for my slightly small vocabulary. I sat back the other day and realized that I say the word “amazing” way too often. Apparently I just think so many things are amazing in life. That’s good though, right?
So even though this print isn’t a true vintage print, it has all the charm as a vintage print would have. We beat our wood frame up to give it a barn wood look and I feel like the entire piece came together.
For a massive impact in a room, spending under 100 dollars is pretty incredible.
I just love how it makes a statement but is so classy at the same time. I’m not a fan of colourful art work, it just isn’t my jam and doesn’t jive with my already muted decor.
Just a little background for you. The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was founded in 1903 and spans from Prince Rupert, BC to Winnipeg MB ( Canada ). I love learning about my history and how our country came to be and function as a whole.
I love to continually change my decor up as you might know if you’ve been following me. Hop on over to Global Gallery and check out their huge selection and styles.
