MMM: Maps, the way to go

Being keen travellers, we’re keen to instil a sense of wanderlust in our pair.

Firing young imaginations with pictures of the big, wide world can only be a BRILLIANT thing, right?


I really want to create a feature map wall in the bedroom of Number One son. Not only will it teach him about the world, but he can plan where he wants to visit and even put flags in places he has been.

(Plus, his dad wants to be able to hothouse him on capital cities before he’s 3!)

Old-school vintage maps are a great place to start. Colporter have some huge styles in stock (pictured). If you’re London-based, you can also visit their brand new stall at 155a Northcote Road Antiques Market, Battersea (upstairs).
