Custom Mural Inspiration: Nautical Maps

Today's custom mural inspiration piece focuses on nautical maps.  We have produced hundreds of map murals; the custom map murals we have produced are oftentimes for clients who live on the East or West coast, and are typically nautical charts of their nearby waters.  The mural image in this inspiration piece is of the Carta Marina.  The Carta Marina, Latin for Map of the Sea, was drawn in 1539 by Olaus Magnus, the first detailed map of Nordic waters.  The mural highlights the intricacies and obstacles that imperiled seamen in the 16th century, including treacherous currents, whirlpools, and even sea monsters!  Nautical themed wallpaper works wonderfully with eclectic world decor; baubles and trinkets from around the globe accentuate the travel theme engendered in a map mural.
