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.

  • 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?

  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, January 23rd at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)

    WORLD ME!! There’s a lot of places that mean a lot to me, where I grew up (New Orleans, LA), where I went to college (Starkville, MS), my first on-my-own vacation (Greece and Italy), my favorite tried and true vacation spot (Destin, FL), and where I live now (Houston, TX). They all mean a lot to me for different reasons, and I don’t think I could ever pick one place! Although, I can’t wait to add wedding, honeymoon, and where I raise my future children to that list!

    World Me!!
    This would be interesting because it’s long and skinny, but I’d love to have the Appalachian Trail wallpapered somewhere. My husband and I through-hiked in 2004, so it’s a special map to us.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    oh, so many wonderful memories of places. really love the county roads in Nebraska that i grew up on. but also love the Las Vegas valley since that is where we owned our first house and really started growing our little family (i know, not the typical reason people love las vegas). so many great memories!

    Canada is and always will be most special to me. I do have a fascination with Australia though and will go there with our family in a few years. I love maps too and made island silhouettes of Hawaii out of wood to put on our wall after a trip there!

    WORLD ME! I would say Germany!

    I made a desk for my son using a hollow core door and covered it with old maps of Richmond, Virginia, and other areas nearby. He would LOVE a ma of Germany – that is his dream destination!!

    The 1000 Islands in Canada….grew up going there every summer and have the best family memories. But I must say Bermuda, where I honeymooned, was one of the most wonderful places I ever went.

    WORLD ME! This is absolutely amazing that it internationally ships – the best idea for my blank kitchen wall! I think I would go for NYC – it’s just so iconic (and seeing we have a great vintage map in our family of the area I grew up in, I’m happy to pick a city I love, over a city of my nostalgia!)

  8. Josephine Tomato says

    If it were just me, I would definitely order something from San Francisco (my favorite place I have lived) but since I would consider my husband’s opinion :), I would say something New Mexico or specifically Albuquerque since we just moved here in November.

  9. Ana says

    WORLD ME! My husband and I are just finishing up our round the world trip and so far every city is our favorite city! However our respective hometowns hold a special place in each of our hearts.

  10. Kana says


    Oh.. I can’t pick..
    Kyoto – where I was born, Portland, OR – where I grew up, and Boston, MA where I currently live!

  11. Stephanie says


    There will always be a special place in my heart for Raleigh, NC. It’s where I grew up and where I now live with my fiancé in our first home!
