I've had several customers use this design as a Christmas gift for their mom. smiley The house can be their parents' house and the heart balloons can be where each kid ended up living. house
Hey folks! Just a heads up that for Christmas orders you have until Dec. 5th! This is especially important since we're expecting our new baby right around Christmas and at that time will be extending processing times. So the earlier you order, the better!
THIS weekend, guys, sign up for my email list and the first two emails you get will have a 15% off coupon PLUS info on a rare promotion this week! Time to start Christmas shopping! Become a VIP here: (copy and paste in a new tab)

Home Art Designer. Maker. Wife. Mom. Adventurer.

Hello friends! Welcome to my custom map design shop - I hope you find something that inspires you! I love your imagination - and some of my now best-selling designs were originally custom requests dreamed up by people like you. =)

Our shop has been evolving ever since we got married 6 years ago, and over time we've added two little girls to our crew! I create out of the studio/office in our home while simultaneously raising our high-energy viking babies. I know the shop will continue to evolve in interesting ways as our family grows and travels. The unknown is exciting. I dreamed BIG of creating a business that adds warmth to people's homes and delight to their gift-giving - and my dream is coming true, thanks to you!!

I love my customers! I love being able to communicate personally and hear why you want something like this, who it’s for, what the personalized nature of the art means to you. There’s so much love there, so much history. So many places you have been.

Thank you for stopping by!

Fun Fact: Even though my most popular pieces right now are made with maps, in everyday life I can hardly follow a map to save my life. I have no sense of direction. It's pitiful. Ask any of my friends. But I sure do know how to find value in a map. =)

"Maps can change a life, a person, returning us to dreams, to our childhood, to the poetic, to what is real. They can move us forward to what we didn’t even know we were looking for. A map can change a god-awful day or month, ruin a rut, give us directions home and to everywhere else, near and far, to the golden past and today, to the center and then back to the periphery, to our true selves, our lost selves, the traveler, the mystic, the child, the artist. The point of life, a friend said, is not staying alive, but staying in love, and maps give us a shot at this, taking us to the wild brand-new, the old favorite, and back home." ~ Ann Voskamp

Secret Room Homestyle's Privacy Policy


To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information (I do not personally see your payment information, credit card details, etc- as these are processed securely through Etsy), and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (certain locations you have lived, visited, or had important life events such as getting married - for the purpose of personalizing your map designs for you), if you contact me directly via Etsy messages or through a private note attached to your order.


I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
-when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;
-as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.


Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

-Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

-Shipping Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies (specifically USPS). I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services and ship your order.

-Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.


I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data, privately secured within my Etsy account (sold order receipts) for the following time period: 4 years. I only download your personal data when printing USPS shipping labels direct through Etsy's shipping service in order to print these labels from home, and I promptly delete these files after completing and shipping your order.


I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.


If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

-Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

-Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

-Object. You can object to my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons. To opt out of emails that you have previously given me personal consent to join, you may also click the "unsubscribe" button at the bottom of any emails sent to you from Secret Room Homestyle. This does not include messages direct from Etsy, as I do not send these emails personally and you would need to unsubscribe from Etsy's specific emails and services in order to retract your consent.

-Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.


For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Angelica Gottberg, am the data controller of your personal information within my shop Secret Room Homestyle on If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at AngGottberg [!at] Alternately, you may mail me at:

Frequently asked questions
PLEASE READ - Do you have the specific map locations I need?

Most of the time, yes! I am able to source all countries, most cities and natural landmarks, and quite a few smaller townships.

Oftentimes locations outside the US & Canada come with a slightly different map style, but I do my best to put your design together in the most lovely, cohesive way possible.

Occasionally a very small town/township or smaller sections of cities might not be possible to find or not possible to find on an attractive looking map that will work with your design. If that's the case I will try to contact you to see if it would work to show the general encompassing area. **PLEASE NOTE - Rush orders can occasionally make this communication difficult - Please read below!


I can accept rush orders on a case-by-case basis, although this becomes harder during the summer and Christmas season due to the seasonal rush of orders. I will do my best to get a design to you by the time you need it, but if it wasn't a previously agreed-upon rush order I unfortunately cannot guarantee it. If immediacy is extremely important please check with me beforehand!

PLEASE NOTE: If we do have a rush order - please be doubly sure to make sure all of your location and wording info is correct and clear. Rush orders often give me an incredibly small timeframe to clarify. If there is a very specific detail that you must have on the piece or you will not be happy, please let me know immediately to make sure it can be done.

Do you offer gift-wrapping?

Yes! I add optional gift-wrapping for no extra charge (including a little map envelope and slip of paper to use for your note/gift tag). Just ask!

Want to make the gift even more special? Add a special note to your recipient at checkout but clicking "This is a gift" and then checking the next box for adding a gift message, and I will gladly print it and add it to your present!

How long until I receive my design?

My average lead time for creating custom designs is 7-10 days. Occasionally I can do a rush order that ships within 3 days if you contact me first and make sure it's doable at that time.

I'm new to Etsy! How do I order and add personalization?

I'm so glad you're here! Here's how you do it:

Browse the shop until you find the design you want, then click on "Add to Cart" on the right. From there, you can click on your cart icon in the upper right.

On your cart page where you place your order there is a box that says "Add a note to SecretRoomHomestyle", where you can put your location requests as well as the details of any wording you'd like underneath the design. After that click the orange "Proceed to Checkout" button and follow the prompts. Payment processing through Etsy is safe and secure.

If you have any other questions just go back to my shop and click "Contact shop owner" on the left, and I'm happy to help you!
