Fab Freebie: World Play

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below!***

And the lucky / randomly selected / soon to be quite worldly person is… Briana (who says “London, Ontario is special to me. That’s where I first lived on my own, went to University, met my husband, and I just loved that city. Plus, it has the best spaghetti restaurant ever, Spageddy Eddy’s!”). Congrats! And for everyone else, scroll down to the contest entry details for a sweet little discount the Wallpapered folks added for everyone.

One look at Pinterest and I don’t feel quite so alone in my fascination with maps. So to everyone else out there who digs a little cartography in their design, hold on to your seats. This week the people behind Wallpapered are giving one of you a nice big 8ft x 5ft world map wallpaper kit so that you can add a map-tastic mural to your home. As much as I love the various world map styles they offer, the coolest feature (at least to me) is that you can also get custom area map wallpaper that basically zooms into a postal code of your choosing. So you could order custom wallpaper showcasing your favorite big city – or even the small town that you grew up in.

  • PRIZE: Any world map or custom area map wallpaper up to 8ft x 5ft from Wallpapered (a $400+ value!)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “WORLD ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …what town / city / state / country / other geographic area is most special to you? Will you always have a fondness for the town you grew up in? Are you most enamored with the place where you honeymooned? Or are you just bursting with pride over the area where you currently live?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, January 23rd at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: Wahoo, this giveaway is available worldwide!

    WORLD ME! … Umea, Sweden will always hold a dear place in my heart. It’s the first placed I studied abroad in college.

      WORLD ME!
      France will always be a special place for me as this is where I am from. I only moved to New Zealand a few years ago, and although I love my adoptive country, the country I grew up in will always hold a special place in my heart.

    World me!

    I think my husband and I would like a map of the world, as a symbol of the limitless possibilities life has to offer!

    WORLD ME! Beaufort NC where my grandparents and cousins live. I have so many great memories visiting my family there and it is such a beautiful little town on the coast of NC

    WORLD ME! OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH!! It would have to be my hometown back in the UK – this newly-Ohio’d girl misses her roots! Awesome giveaway.

    We have a framed map from our honeymoon to Jackson Hole, WY in our living room now. We’d love to get a larger map that highlights our new neighborhood (moving in three months!).

  6. says

    WORLD ME!!
    Tiny but true: I would get a custom map of the tiny town I grew up in. It’s nothing too special – very small town America – but now that I’m not there, I’d love to have it be a wall of my house (and it would nearly be to scale at that)!

  7. Laura says

    WORLD ME! Also, possible first post?! It will be hard to choose a map; I am head-over-heels for map decor as well!

  8. Becca says

    World me!
    I love love love the town I live in now, and to think I grew up only half an hour away and never realized how great it was!
