Trend Alert: Defining Your Living Space with Posters

Trending Alert Decorating with Posters

Gone are the days when posters were only used to decorate the walls of adolescent bedrooms, home theaters and man caves.  Posters have emerged as a way to tell a story, add bold color, and display your style and personality in your living space.  Reproductions, Travel Posters and Vintage Poster Art are quickly becoming a very popular design trend.  The reason why….the possibilities are endless.

Posters can be displayed almost anywhere.  Here are some of my favorite placements found around the web.

I think one of the reasons why posters are becoming such a popular option, is that they are very cost effective.  Often the same original art work can be hard on your pockets.  In fact, during this past Holiday Season, our poster section generated the most sales in our Etsy Store.  Though, I tend to be partial to seeing posters displayed in frames, simply because I feel that it gives it a “artsy” feel. They can be hung, taped, displayed in a gallery like format or even simply made to lean up against the wall. Regardless of how you choose to incorporate them into your home, they will serve their purpose.  Do you have any posters displayed in your home?  What was the reason that you went with a poster, as opposed to another form of art?
