Watching ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ for a twentieth time? Dreaming about adding something new to your home decor? Can’t resist the mid-century style vibe? This post is definitely directed at you then. Consider creating a retro-style gallery and let your interior decorating ideas gain what is best from vintage!
Poster design is a separate branch of graphic design that is supposed to both attract attention and display the commercial or movie content in a playful manner. The most famous posters are those who are instantly associated with the pop-culture icons, the promoted lifestyle that we all aspire to live, and some of which we would like to bring to our own home. Here are some interior decorating ideas that may inspire you.
Selecting the items of your collection that are kept in similar color palette as the rest of the room is a great idea. On one hand, it gives the displayed pieces cohesiveness. And on the other hand it makes you take a closer look and search for the design details in each of them. If you hang such a gallery, another key to success might be picking identical frames that are reduced to being just a minimal black contour.
Maybe you have considered hanging some theme posters on your walls? Take a look at this set of those adorable stylized drawings of birds. Why not look for something similar? Some bold colors can add a fresh attitude to a mid-century home like thes one above.
Are you a fan of botanical prints just as me? Why don’t you display their beauty in your dining room for everyone else to enjoy? Together with natural materials they create a soothing and unpretentious interior. A background for this gallery should be a muted shade of blue or green and the furniture preferably wooden and slightly rustic in finish. As for complimentary fabrics – stick to linen, wool or fur in black and white.
Have a traveller’s soul? Maybe hanging a vintage map on one (or more) of your walls could both inspire you to follow your passion and refresh your home decor as well? As the frame and sideboard in this example are wooden, it is reasonable to keep the balance by adding a mid-century chair in bright orange and keeping the rough finish of the walls (concrete panelling could also look extraordinarily).
One might think that hanging a poster in a bathroom is not exactly a good idea. Quite the contrary! As you can see, it adds liveliness to the lovely, yet slightly too traditional and play it safe bathroom, that is simply lacking some design confidence without some more modern art.
I certainly hope that this article was inspiring for you and that you could find some room for displaying your art collections of all kinds, not only posters. Check other posts on the Home Inspiration Ideas Blog and find even more advice on interior design and decoration.
