J'adore #40 (Map Edition 2)

JAdore-Misadventures-with-AndiSo even though I am a little road weary these days, that doesn’t mean I don’t have travel on the brain. That is 24/7 for me, like food, and I am always planning what my next trip or next product for a trip, or item that reminds me of a trip…you get the picture!

This edition of J’adore is travel focused with a heavy sprinkling of map related items which will surely please Kristin.  If this is your first time here (by the way, welcome!) J’adore is a series I do where I curate items that I have seen during my internet travels that appeal to me. Since I actually live a minimalist lifestyle I would never actually buy all of this (but I do buy some of them from time to time), I just do a lot of virtual window shopping!

This is not the first time that I have found maps of city neighborhoods, they seem to be popping up all over, but I love the stylings and design on the ones from These are Things site. I particularly like the San Francisco one of course but they have some other items that are adorable as well, so check them out!

Besides these fun San Francisco BART stop posters, the Going Underground shop has many of the metro lines around the world including Paris, but you can also customize your own any way you want, great for a wedding, or for putting names of places that may have special meaning to you.

Another visually appealing way to show metro lines is their line maps and the one for Paris is fantastic, the line has so many stops it makes for a good illustration!


You can always where your favorite metro line on your wrist with one of these beautiful bracelets from Design Hype.  Of course I am partial to the Paris one!

Paris Metro CuffI love the idea of enticing kids into travel early.  Opening their minds to the fact that there are differences in peoples and cultures all around the world.  So I love these next two items which are great for teaching children about other spots in the world.  Like this Zig Zag City Guide for Rome from a company called Big Cartel. They have started with Rome, and I hope they expand, it is such a great way to learn about an amazing city.


Also I think these crumpled city maps from NotedCo are fun for kids to play with and take along on a trip without worry about them messing up the grown-up version.  There are several cities available including Paris.

  1. Oooh la la, the red metro line one is my favorite!

  2. Have you noticed how popular the colors in that map are? They’re everywhere, so much so, I can’t identify anyone thing with those muted shades of blue, burnt orange and yellow. Wild. I see them in infographics and websites all the time.

    Another great J’adore!

    • @Jen, maybe they are a fad, I know that a certain shade of orange is the Pantone color of the year but I don’t know about the blue….

  3. Love this!!! That bracelet is too cool. 🙂

  4. The bracelet is way cool. Lets you dream about the places you’ve been and the ones you’re longing to get to.

    I’m in love with these illustrations! I never knew maps could translate so beautifully! The illustrations would look beautiful as wall art, and the silver cuff is adorable!
