One of the things I really dislike about renting is the inability to hang anything on the wall. We do have a picture rail in our flat, but I'm not sure if I 100% trust it (that and it's currently busy keeping our fairy lights in place). It's not too much of an issue though, as we don't particularly have anything to hang.
I've been thinking that when we do get our own place, it would be fantastic if we had a collection of really interesting pieces to adorn our walls, but I wasn't really sure what I wanted. In talking to the boy, we eventually agreed that film posters were a good option. But it feels a bit student chic, and I don't think the thought of paying to have something that is normally put up with blue tac framed. If money was no object, I would search high and low for a set of Olly Moss' Star Wars posters, but there aren't any on eBay at the moment, and when they do appear for sale they're normally £1000+.
This evening, I stumbled across a goldmine. I saw two films last year that really took my breath away, Drive and Hanna. I found them both so compelling, I loved the plots, the acting, the camera work, the soundtracks. The studio posters are all well and good as far as film posters go, but I wanted something a bit more artistic and slick. Google Images soon directed me to Society 6, where I found these beauties.

I've had a good rummage through the site and I pretty much want to buy everything. As well as the two above, I love these art posters for two of my favourite sci-fi films.
And of course, you can never go too wrong with a Star Wars poster set. I really dig the simplicity of these designs.
