Cinema Icons

Image this room without the poster – it would still be very pretty, but rather different. Lolita peeking out over her heart-shaped sunglasses is an unexpected addition that brings something extra to the room. The orange matches the blue and earth tones of the interior beautifully.

French filmmaker Jacques Tati used form, colour and lighting to help tell his playful stories. So it is no surprise that the poster for his most famous movie Mon Oncle shows a striking graphic design. The iconic image is a great match for the retro vibe of this interior.

Cool vintage furniture and accessories in muted colours look even better when combined with great big splashes of colour, like this fantastic French poster for Almodóvar movie Matador. Not enough yet? Add a rug in bright hues.

Don’t have room for a big gesture? Grouping a few accessories of the same colour with your favourite poster will have quite an impact as well. It’s the easiest way to create a cool film enthusiast’s corner.

Whether you have a minimalist or a classic home, a framed quote is always a good idea. And when it is a cool quote from your favourite movie, even better. It will give your room personality and bring a smile to your face.

Film posters don’t just feel at home in teenage bedrooms and retro interiors. Even in a space as classic as this, the right poster will look absolutely fabulous. We think this one, with handsome French movie star Alain Delon, is a terrific choice.

Monochrome boring? Not at all. Especially when you add a bright orange lamp and a truly huge poster of Jack Nicholson in one of his classic movie roles – a poster that also features a dash of bold orange.

Hungarian artist György Kemény created a lot of beautiful film posters. His simple lines and geometric shapes made for powerful images. This seventies design for Chaplin classics The Kid and The Idle Class inserts fun and colour in the monochrome office space.

Make a Wish

Monochrome is still happening, and images of dandelions fit this enduring trend beautifully. For example, look at the great wall gallery in the chic Scandinavian home of Nina Holst, owner of Stylizimo.com. Do as she does and keep the frames black (or made from natural wood) and stick to black and white artworks.

A close-up of a dandelion on a black background, with a black frame, gives a modern monochrome touch to a bohemian home like this. We also love how it echoes the potted palm and bouquet on the table.

The best place to think about your biggest dreams and deepest wishes is your bedroom. So dandelion art will be a fitting choice for this space. Match it with an equally featherlight image, for example of a… feather.

This bedroom is as sweet as it gets. Not only because of the white and pink colour scheme, the bronze accessories and the soft bedding, but also because of the dreamy artwork by Etsy shop My Own Dreamland. Note the fact that this bed is made of only a matress: such a romantic nest!

The dandelion trend is taking over our floors, too. Look at these wonderful dandelion tiles made by Marrakech Design, available in enchanting colours. The wonderful wool rug is by West Elm, and made by special order.

Once again, the monochrome interior. We are a fan, as they are the perfect place for displaying your favourite illustrations – like this one of a dandelion, of course. The lovely thin frames and matching side table create an elegant atmosphere.

This wallpaper by Karwei is lovely: it transforms any room into an enchanting place. The dandelion print can be combined with a monochrome interior, but will also look great in more bohemian and colourful spaces.

Instagram-worthy bathrooms are on everybody’s wish list nowadays. Be inspired by this space in soothing shades of grey. The pretty dandelion artwork is a lovely eye catcher.

Lip Service

The perfect match! Sexy lips in a broad black frame pack a punch. Take it to the next level by choosing wallpaper with animal print as a backdrop. This way you’ll get a perfectly cheeky look.

So, you like it soft and smooth? (We are talking about your wall gallery). Opt for a light pink paint on the wall, buy frames that are white or made from natural wood, and give your sexy framed lips the best spot imaginable.

lip-service-50

As you already know, a light pink (or salmon) wall is a great background for your lipstick art. With a gallery wall with black frames, filled with other statement art, you’ll get a super poppy atmosphere. Douze points for the fashionable effect of the leopard cushion.

Now this interior is something else. The choice for a huge print is rather cool. Note that the mouth is closed and that the colours in the artwork are a bit cold – for those that like to keep it cool at all times.
Wowsers for this great piece of beautiful beaded pop-art by designer Jonathan Adler. It’s completely made by hand. We think the combination of the blue smoke and the blue cabinet, with the red lips and the black frame is just electric.

Creatives on a budget might want to change their office view without a lot of effort and big bucks. So why not hang your affordable or even DIY-art on an iron wire with some handy clips? This big mouth is for sale at Urban Outfitters.

We love it when two worlds come together. Check out this combination in the home of blogger Amber Chambers of The Beautiful Savages: an antique golden frame in an interior that’s all about black, blue, white and modern design. Like!

The coolest new hotel in Paris is Le Pigalle, located in the quartier of the same name. The interior of the hotel is the greatest mix of velour, vintage furniture, terrazzo and brass, and the crowd is sexy, creative and rock ’n’ roll. What better choice for a logo than a wonderful big red mouth?

Dark fantasy


Artist Ruben Ireland makes gorgeous images of beautiful women that seem to have stepped out of a gloomy fairy tale. This wall features two of them, and they make for an interesting atmosphere.

An image of a skull always makes a big impact. Think it’s too punk? Think again, and have a look at this print of a diamond-encrusted one (yes, that’s the artwork by Damien Hirst). Pretty chic right? Especially when combined with touches of gold.

The ultimate dark fantasy on tv right now is, without a doubt, Game of Thrones. Fans and artists have made marvellous illustrations inspired by the series. Also a fan? Take a look and maybe you’ll get inspired, too.


dark-fantasy-60

On the internet you’ll find lots of interesting images that fit the dark fantasy theme. Like this image by Hamza Luca, who must have a great imagination to come up with a girl drinking tea with owls in an enchanted forest.

Another cool wall with fantastic prints by Ruben Ireland. They look great combined with the whimsical photographs and vintage city map. The thin black frames make sure the images get all the attention.

This is an amazing collection. All the (rather frightening) illustrations are done in the same style but displayed in very different frames, adding to the idea of gothic horror stories. Beautiful and scary at the same time.

dark-fantasy-40

And now for a great little corner, a display with lots of fantasy. The pineapples, bell jar and vintage frames go together wonderfully. The artworks are by talented illustrator Diana Volk Zacharias.

dark-fantasy-50

Another cool display, assembled with care. The trick is to not make it too minimalist. Have the bell jars, in memoriam card, illustrations and a little doily. The hand is a bit lugubrious, which makes this corner all the more interesting.

Abstract Landscapes


Julia Contacessi is a painter from Connecticut who explores colour and light in her layered paintings. It’s fun to pick out a hue from one of her art works and reflect it in the furniture, like this elegant blue bench.

And now for some more glamour and sunshine! If you’re not very fond of being reminded of grey skies and moody days, go for an image that brings the sunshine in. Like this one, with a touch of gold.


abstract-landscapes-50

This painting by Madlen Design features a beautiful play of colour, shapes and light. It’s almost like a window looking out onto a snowy landscape. The smaller, quite similar paintings on the floor are a playful touch and break up the moodiness of the image.

abstract-landscapes-30

This one is a bit different, a bit playful. The many shades of grey could be clouds, but that idea is subverted by the golden dots in a grid. Or do those evoke sunlight? All in all, a very interesting painting by artist Nina Holst.

abstract-landscapes-40

If you like a bit of drama, go for a large image that evokes thunder clouds. Gorgeous, isn’t it? You don’t need much else for an impressive hallway, just a simple but beautiful chair and equally classy lamp.


abstract-landscapes-70

A very sophisticated painting by Julia Kotenko that you could watch forever, like clouds passing by. It suits the very chic corner. The glamorous lamp and foot stools turn this hallway from a forgettable space into a little haven of luxury.

This is a fun but chic pairing of an abstract image and a poem in a lovely font. The golden frames make the images look extra classy – as does the candle stick. Pretty cool.

How evocative is this gorgeous image? It could be a bay, with the hills reflecting in the water. The purity and simple colours make it the perfect addition to a minimalist but warm interior. It’s from Nancy Knight art at Esy, by the way.
