Styling with a retro map

Styling a vintage map

I love the synchronicity of the colours and the vintages of these three things. Map, scales, vase.

Shape, form and function are totally disparate, but the colours echo other and the three work really well as an ensemble. The map is for sale [see post below] but the Salter scale and the Pates vase are part of my permanent collection.

Vintage maps are very collectible. They lend a nostalgic, quasi-educational, kitschy quality to any space. This one is from the 40s and is a little bit un-PC. Which of course, adds to its desirability.
