Even before we had picked a house I was scheming about creating a wall collage of the various city maps we’ve collected. When we found our home I knew the perfect wall was above the couch in the office. We spend the vast majority of our time at home in the office and these prints are our favorites, so why wouldn’t we combine.

I saw a genius idea on Pinterest a while ago to map out a photo collage using brown packing paper before committing to nails in the wall. It makes the project so much easier and there are only a few extra nail holes in our wall. I traced each frame onto paper, cut them out, then wrote the print title. Using painters tape, I put them up and rearranged, measured, and tweaked until we were happy.
