Summit Ridge Etsy Shop makes a beautiful water color representation of city or neighborhood maps from around the world. I love how abstract they look until you ealize it's actually a map. I think having three or four of these in a gourping is a great way to personalize artwork in your home. i absolutely love this one of Paris.
If you are feeling crafty and or you are techno savvy, here's a great way to DIY!
It would be nice to put your own spin on it and try to copy the images below by hand.
Stamen.com is a website that you can do it yourself- and the best part- it's free! Just enter a city and it comes out like below. If you like the color in the original map- great! you're done, if not, you can play with it to make it look how you way in any image manipulation software.
I saved the image and took it into photoshop, converted to black and white, then added a blue color overlay, or I left it alone.
I took a couple of places near and dear to my heart and made them look how I wanted.
I'm thinking in my guest room I might have to add some new "art."
I fell in love with New york here.
