Cartography

Andrés  loves history. He has this this way of explaining events in world history that just captivates me. He reads books by Niall Ferguson like The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the WorldColossus: The Rise and Fall of the American Empire.

I’m inspired by his love of both history & old maps, & I’d love for us to integrate that into the redesign of the condo. In addition to the possible old map of Washington, DC above our bed, I’d love to collect different sized globes on a wooden floating shelf in the living room.

These map letters would be easy to do with a map, a pair of scissors & some modge podge.

It’s just about the same process for making these adorable map coasters.

I could whip up a few of these pillows, too, since my mom taught us all to sew.
