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.
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.
