I don't know what it is, but I have a thing for maps and globes. As a child, I dreamed of exploring the far ends of the earth, and maps somehow made me feel connected.
For a young child, there is nothing better than looking up at a big colorful map and imagining where your next big adventure is going to be. In my boys' room, I have a wall that would be perfect for hanging a large map mural. I can just imagine two twin mahogany beds in front of it and two sleepy boys falling asleep every night dreaming of big things.
Here are some examples of great wallpaper murals:
