I really love all the images I'm seeing of the humble, world globe being used as a decorator piece. I would normally envision a globes placement to be on a book shelf or a desk in a study, but, since I began looking at images in blogs, I have discovered them to be used for so many decorating applications & I love it!
I never realized that you could get so many styles, sizes & colours.
We have always owned the typical blue globe that you see in a classroom at your local school & we have had a lot of fun over the years, giving it a spin in search of another country.

A globe adds an artistic addition to any display.A pop of yellow really looks awesome in this otherwise cool blue & white display.Beach Brights
Do you think everyone that sits on this couch has to give at least one of these globes a spin.
What a fabulous mix of old & new.
I love this look!!!

The blue & red add great pops of colour in this retro style decor, with a couple of globes in the corner adding a little extra character.
This is one of my most favourite images, I just love the simplicity of the neutral colour scheme with the traditional style decor.

This rather extensive collection looks as though it has evolved over time
I love how the globes here are mimicked by the light fittings.

A fabulous choice for a room divider
A very modern display, there is a globe available for any style
Teamed with this worn style leather chair & Ottoman, this display lends a masculine feel to the room
This nice big silver globe is very beautiful & I imagine it would be rather expensive, but it would certainly be a lovely feature in any space.
I would love a collection of small paper globes like these to display in a nice bowl on the coffee table, I think they would be a great conversation starter.
Do you have a globe or two at your house & did you think outside the square to display it, or, pop it in the study?
I have noticed in many of the display homes I have toured of late, that globes are definitely a decorating trend with designers at the moment & its one that I am personally enjoying.
I think it gives the home a feeling, that the occupants are perhaps well travelled, so I think I need to jump on this band wagon...apart from a 3 day weekend in New Zealand I haven't travelled at all, but hey,
"Fake it, til, ya make it!!!"
cause I can't see me going anywhere, any time soon!!!
Some of these images have been in my inspiration file long before I began blogging so I don't always no the source, please email me if you can help me correct this & give the appropriate credit.
