Your Street Original

The first three orders - this is where they went to
What do a person from Newcastle, Australia have in common with a person from Åkersberga, Sweden? A wallpaper from Your Street - Rebel Walls! Our first three orders of Your Street Original went to Newcastle - Australia, Kyoto - Japan and Åkersberga - Sweden. Someone in all three of these different cities fell for the neat blue and green design named "Original". Your Street is a service where you send us the address you want to make a map wallpaper of, your currant home address, the street you where raised at or something completely else. It´s up to you!
The expression the map gets depends on how big the city is, how the nature looks etcetera. Get a new perspective on your every day life with a map that shows you the streets you use when your going to work, the grocery store or the gym. We are thrilled to see the different citys transformed into map wallpapers! This is how the first three orders turned out;
Almost every color field has a little structure added to it, like the thin lines in the water. Newcastle is a city by the sea - it gives the map a unique silhouette that is easy to recognize.
Kyoto is a big, densely built, city with many inhabitants. To say the least. The many houses creates a very structured grid net and the orange railway tracks creates an interesting shape in itself.
Whereas Sweden is a much less densely populated country... This is Åkersberga, close to Stockholm, the names of the streets are written in black letters which makes it easy to "navigate" on the wall.
