Walking around my empty new apartment this weekend, I started thinking about how many oversized pieces of artwork I have, and how few options there are going to be for open wall space to hang them. Between doorways, windows, and the pitched ceilings in some of the rooms — my options are limited.
But scrolling through my handy inspiration file, I’m finding lots of great examples of oversized artwork taking up the majority of the wall — it’s like wallpapering a surface — but framed!
After my post yesterday lusting after reproduction bus stop rolls, my friend Colleen emailed me and let me know Ward Maps, located right in Cambridge MA, sells similar vintage ones! They’re all from buses and trains around Boston, and compared to what I’ve seen some of the UK versions selling for, they’re quite reasonable. I particularly love the one with all of the subway lines.
(There are some on the site from New York too!)

These vintage bus destination signs are popping up everywhere lately, and today versions made by Skout are on sale at One Kings Lane. If I hadn’t already covered every wall in my apartment with artwork, I’d be snatching one of these up today!
I just caught on to a new blog, Live Creating Yourself. I noticed its’ author Alaina and I have similar tastes, her couch had the same animal print pillows I just bought! And the graphic prints behind in her apartment are adorable. I love the simplicity and impact of stripped down line drawings (I also love her apartment).
It’s like she read my mind because just as I was about to email her and ask where she got them, she posted about opening her own Esty shop and selling her creations!
