Old maps are a great way of decorating. Whether framed or under glass on the coffee table, they offer a unique sense of character and sophistication. And they're a lot cheaper than paying the ego-inflated prices of original art. To see how they might look on your walls (oh, and get a lesson in Texas geography at the same time), head to the Old Red Museum, 100 S. Houston St., for Going to Texas: Five Centuries of Texas Maps, on display through February 23, 2008. Call 214-7455-1100 or visit oldred.org.
