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!
  • DISCOUNT: Get 10% off your custom map order with code YHL2013

    World Me!! I have to say I love our little town of Winona Lake, Indiana! It’s beautiful, especially in the summer, the village along the canal comes alive!

  2. Liana says


    I’m excited to head back to Hong Kong this year or next for vacation. I spent a semester there during college a few years ago and loved it. Fascinating blend of modern and traditional life, and just a really fun city for walking and people-watching.

    I’m from Pittsburgh, PA and that city will always be one of my favorites. With the three rivers a close up map would be so cool!

  4. Brenda says

    World Me!

    Its a tie between the North Eastern US (where i grew up) and London with all the history and curved streets.

  5. Lindsey says

    World me!

    We live in Chicago, our first move as a married couple was to this city, and both of our children were born here. Love it.

  6. Ashley J says

    I will always hold a fondness for Traverse City, MI, because that’s where we got married!

  7. Nicole Williams says

    World me! I would say Manhattan or Johannesburg. Both places I’ve lived and loved.

    Sorrento, Italy. I went there when I was 16 on a school trip and can’t wait to go with my husband and daughter in a few years. Magical place.
