So, I was doing some research on color trends for home decor - moving into next spring, this soft teal is one of my favorite color trends. It may not be new, but it is here to stay. I love the simple, clean look and the fact that you can still read the map. This item would be equally at home in your coastal decor or travel/wanderlust style decor. Also available in a cream or a cooler white on white option. Hope you love it!
