If you’re anything like me, fashion and interior design go hand-in-hand. It makes sense for fashion-forward folk to want their living space to be as comfortable and stylish as the clothes they wear. Of course, no one wants their living space to look like a hotel room (no offense to those who design hotel rooms), so it’s important to add some personal touches to really own your space.
Having recently graduated from college and moved into a new place, I wanted to really carve out a corner of the world to be exactly as I wanted it. Because let’s be honest, we all need the occasional dose of escapism from our day-to-day.
The Search for Wall Decor
With my core furniture in place, I scoured online to find wall art that would fit both my room and my personal tastes. Fortunately, I stumbled upon a company called Displate, who makes metal posters that serve as wall art. Admittedly, posters made of metal weren’t exactly what I originally had in mind. However, I wanted my room to look unique, so I dove onto the site to search around.
I was seriously surprised at not just the sheer selection of artwork on the site, but how much of it I actually liked. Displate partners with artists and graphic designers to print their work on metal posters. They also plant 10 trees for each Displate sold. Unique art that supports small-time artists and plants trees? I’m on board.
After looking at a bunch of categories, I ended up getting 3 large-sized posters with negative space designs. They seemed like a great way to add some color to an otherwise pretty neutral set-up.
The posters arrived in a cardboard box with some free stickers to place around on laptops and the like. Each poster has a small square magnet that adheres to the wall and attaches to the wall art. Installation only took a few minutes to get the art lined up on the wall. No screws or nails made setting these up a breeze!
The magnets themselves are pretty strong, ensuring the posters won’t fall down while allowing for minor adjustments in positioning. I don’t anticipate any leftover sticky residue after the I remove the magnet.
All in all, I really do like the added character these Displate posters bring to my living space. They’re a unique alternative to traditional wall art with a selection of designs for seemingly any person’s interest.
