Montlake

This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

Adi Tatarko added this to Houzz Tour: 1926 Bungalow Renovation
The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.”
A gallery wall featuring numerous maps can inspire in a home office.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Designs for Living: Documenting a Well Traveled Life
Exploration maps are easy souvenirs to transport home. They are also geographical tokens that document your path.
Property maps. I really like the way this collection is displayed! These maps are so much fun, and I was even able to find one of my own neighborhood through Google before we bought our house! Tip: You can purchase a map of your area similar to one of these at Historical Map Works.
If you get your fix from vintage or modern art, an easy and artistic solution is to frame each item and arrange on a photo wall. A wall of like-minded items adds a sense of depth and personality to a room.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 20 Creative Alternatives to Fine Art
A vintage map — or lots of vintage maps — can be a good alternative to fine art. For an upscale look, ditch the push pins and frame your maps.
Maps. Antique maps create a wall full of classical style. The fact that they are all black maps on cream backgrounds unites them, which means you don't need to frame them all the same way.
Beth Dotolo, RID, ASID added this to Designing with Souvenirs
You can also collect maps over time of the places you visit over the years and create an art wall. This gallery style display gives this home a well-traveled feel allowing the homeowners to reminisce about all their vacations past.
Scheer & Co. added this to Give Your Home Some Global Style
Framed maps will do it every time, especially those with a hand-drawn, vintage feel, whether in color paper type or illustration style.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Home Design: What's Your Story?
Collections also help communicate who we are. Consider displaying a set of vintage maps of places we have traveled to.
Have fun with art in your home by putting up a mesmerizing oversized map that both children and parents can learn from and enjoy.
Samantha Schoech added this to Figure Out Your Art Style
There is something masculine and no-nonsense about antique maps. They're art with information.
2. Start a low-maintenance collection. When choosing an item to collect, think small, portable and easy to find. Maps — whether antique or current — matchbooks and even humble postcards can make fine collectibles. Seek the same thing in every place you travel, and you can soon have a unique collection.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Collective Wisdom: Display Ideas for Collections of All Kinds
Don’t let Mikey see this, or he’ll want to collect maps. The secret to a successful display like this is careful planning of the hanging pattern. The large map in the center is flanked by maps in varying sizes, but the arrangement maintains a close-to-common top and bottom line. And just to prove there are no rules, the frames are wonderfully varied, even as they have a similar profile.
