14 Maps to Hang in a Nursery
I have loved maps my entire life (for as long as I can remember, my dad would hand over the map and ask me to navigate when we came to a new city). And I love decorating with them – they add such flair to any room.
And the nursery is no exception. I love using maps to identify places that are important to a family or as an educational piece of artwork.
These fourteen from Etsy are some of the most clever and beautiful I’ve seen, featuring specific cities all the way to the entire world.
Bright World Map
I love that every country is labeled on here – how helpful when you realize you actually have no idea where Mongolia is. And the colors are so vibrant and happy! Available here.
Continents in Separate Frames
I can hardly stand how cool this would look on a blank wall of a nursery. You have the world map in the center and then a separately framed print of each continent. Available here.
Watercolor State or Country
These are so sweet. You can choose from any country or state, and the little heart in the middle is just the perfect finishing touch. Available here.
Dinosaur World Map
It just does not get more fun than this map made of dinos. Available here.
Two Color World Sketch
I am in love with this world map – it looks like it came right out of a children’s book. You can customize the colors to match any nursery scheme. Available here.
Public Transit Maps
These sleek maps are available pretty much every city with a public transit system. I adore how subtle they are. Available here.
Family Around the World
You can choose as many states or countries to highlight as you want – what a fun way to show your child where grandparents or other family members live or came from originally. Available here.
A city made up only of lines marking the streets? I can’t help but love the simple modern look of these maps. And the range of cities available is mind-boggling. Available here.
State with a Heart
What a great way to mark your child’s birthplace. Plus, you can add a name, date, and city at the bottom of the print. Available here.
Vintage World Map
If you’re going for a vintage look in your nursery, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat this world map from the 50s. It’s like stepping into a post-WWII schoolroom. Available here.
States Made of Cities
These maps of states made up of the cities in that state have such a grown-up, cool look to them. Available here.
Silhouette World Map
This map has such a clean crisp look and you can pick from a huge range of colors for the background. Available here.
This USA map has such a fun, eclectic vibe to it. And with this many colors, it will match whatever you’ve chosen for your nursery. Available here.
How sweet is this heart cut-out of the city your child was born in? I love the idea of eventually having one for each child hanging all together (you’d possibly need one for each parent too. . . .). Available here.
