I am currently re-decorating my bedroom and I choose the vintage Hollywood theme because I love old movies. I am looking for vintage movie posters, so far I was only able to find three at the stores (Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Mairlynn Monroe in that white dresss). Does anybody know of any good websites where I can find some Hollywood movie posters? I would also like to point out that I am on a budget : ) Also, does anyone have any tips for decor that would enhance my theme?

  1. Ebay!

    I’m a huge fan of Hollywood (the Golden Age, of course) – specifically Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Greta Garbo … the classic goddesses (of course there’s none greater than Joan Crawford)! 🙂

    Ebay has an amazing selection of vintage Hollywood posters, original and re-print.

    You could also simply google ‘vintage hollywood posters’..

    Good luck, girl- and I’m hoping I’m speaking with a fellow Joan Crawford fan 😉

  2. As mentioned before, allposters.com has thousands upon thousands of movie posters (and posters of other types). You can pick up frames almost anywhere, but IKEA has nice beechwood frames that can be painted.

    My suggestion as to decorating is to pick a style and choose both posters and accessories that suit that style. For example, if you like Art Deco, you could get posters from movies like Metropolis, Wings, and the 1931 Frankenstein. (Posters from more recent movies like Bonnie & Clyde and the Agatha Christie mysteries work well here too.) If you wanted to go 50s retro, you could get posters from movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sunset Boulevard, and Ben-Hur.

    For decorating, you could paint using historical paint colours for those eras. Sherwin Williams has a historical palette, as does Dulux in the UK. Paint is cheap, especially if you do it yourself, and can really make a big difference.

    Once you choose a specific era, it’ll also be easier to find furniture and accessories that match. 50s accessories show up a lot in garage sales in post-war neighbourhoods – many seniors who were 20 in the 50s are moving into seniors’ residences and cleaning out their homes.
