I have a globe from the Smithsonian in my office (it's a daydream slash research tool), and I kind of want one for our living room. They're a colorful accent piece, and a conversation starter at dinner parties (Oh, that's where Chad is!). Designer Wendy Gold takes vintage globes (she scours flea markets for gems) and uses recycled materials to decoupage and decorate. Craft a message or mark your wedding date, pick your color and font, you've got a world of options (from $450). Or, scour your parents' attic, find an old globe, and use Wendy's DIY kit ($24) to make your own.
