What's your favorite "decoration" in your room/house/apartment (post pictures!)?

I got this world map from 1626 for my apartment today and I absolutely love it! πŸ’–

What's your favorite
"New and accurate" πŸ˜…
I also have some paintings (by me) & chain of lights that I think add character to my place :)
what about you guys?

    (sorry about the quality- it's really dark in my room!)
    This is Wolf by Kate Salway, an artist trained at Slade, UCL! I went to a local art museum with my mum on Christmas Eve, and commented on a piece on the wall. The next morning it was wrapped up behind the sofa. Best Christmas ever! :D

  • mine is a nat geo map my wife and i have that comes with pins. you put different colored pins in the map for places you want to go, places you have plans to go, etc

    it is fun to look at to get excited about trips we have planned and remember trips we went on

  • I like maps as well, and im a huge discworld fan which is an ongoing series by the amazing author Terry Pratchett. Seriously, this series of books has been ongoing since 1983 so you can imagine just how well established and detailed the world is.

    Anyway, they made some extremely detailed maps of the world and its main city ankhmorpork, and they are huge. 100cm x 90 cm.

    I didn't want to just pin them to wall and ruin them so I made my own clip frames using acrylic sheets and 5mm plywood sheets.

    they look absolutely amazing on the wall so please excuse the poor photography skills.

  • Isn't it amazing that they didn't even have Australia on the world map from that era? Australia is huge.

      Yeah all of Oceania hadn't been discovered then - I still find the accuracy of the location & shape of the continents very impressive though, given that there weren't any satellites or even airplanes to actually look at it from above in 1626 at all yet!

  • I have an ORIGINAL poster for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in good condition.
    My aunt got it for me for my birthday, god knows where she found it

      Yeah everyone thinks that it is a little bit quirky - They think it looks a bit like a brand new house unlived in - I can't help being really clean and tidy.

      I study history, just 3 classes of my bigger bachelor but still, it's intriguing and beautiful at the same time because it reflects just so many things about the renaissance.

      Like 4.50€ so about 5$, it's just a print though but the quality is really good & the print itself is already pretty old judging by the paper, etc.

      Cool Jupiter. I like it.

  • Well my room is pretty bland. I guess my best decoration would have to be my jar of shoe laces. When I ever I get rid of an old pair of shoes I keep the laces just in case I ever mess up the laces in a pair of new shoes or I wanna change the color of the laces. Over the years I've collected a lot of shoe laces and I keep them stored in a fancy glass jar. It kind of looks like a piece of art.

      Oh yeah I have that one too! But I don't really have a nice space to put it so I put it over the edge of a shelf and I don't think it really comes into its own that way :/

    • 1mo

      Lol I did the same thing! for now it's on the edge of a shelf where my books are. But yeah don't worry it will still look cool. Although I get weird comments from people like "what is that, is that a clock?" Most people don't get the reference lol

  • I have a whole wall that has pictures of family and friends and quotes on colorful sheets of paper. They are scattered from the top of the wall to the baseboards. It definitely brings color and happiness to my room.

      Omg lol, no! 😂😂😂 well like pandas are cute and stuff so I guess - but who doesn't like pandas? Tbh I can't remember why I clipped those, but I suppose there's some kind of sentiment involved. It's just funny because I also work from home sometimes and when new clients come by and they see that wall they make pretty funny confused faces.
