Do you have many pictures on your walls? I am so indecisive about what to put on ours – from paint colours to art, it takes me an eternity to decide! I’m a big fan of the picture ledge from IKEA: we have one in the office, and a couple in our bedroom. But they aren’t idea for larger-scale pieces. When Posterlounge asked me to review some of their pictures*, I was excited, but then overwhelmed by the sheer choice on their site!
I wanted something to go above our dining table, as that pale pink wall was looking a bit blank. I was also keen to refresh the pictures in my office, but still keep the monochrome theme. I also wanted something for Thea’s room. After ages working up my wishlist, I finally came to a decision. Not long afterwards, my my Posterlounge pictures arrived. Here’s a sneak peek of my favourite one, but I’ll reveal the others after I’ve shown you the packaging.
Posterlounge Pictures Packaging
My Posterlounge pictures arrived in a huge cardboard box. The pictures themselves were well packaged, but didn’t have excessive packaging materials. I hate having loads of bubble wrap or polystyrene packaging so I was pleased there wasn’t too much.
The posters arrived rolled in a tube, in perfect condition, on nice-weight, glossy photographic paper.
How To Fix on the Poster Hangers
I chose white poster hangers, and they are fairly straightforward to fit to the pictures. You just knot the ends of the string, slide them into the grooves in the piece of wood. I took some pictures to show how to do it, as it did take me a little while to work out.
Then you just need to hang up your pictures.
My Posterlounge Canvas Picture
The chose a while ‘floating frame’ for the canvas picture I chose from Posterlounge. It looks great, and really brings a lovely on-trend splash of green to our kitchen/diner.
I have actually hung it upside down, as it looks better than the way they suggest.
This is how it looks placed horizontally – I can’t decide which I like best!
My Posterlounge Pictures
Starting with my office, I popped my first print into an IKEA frame, and it looks perfect next to the black and white picture of our wedding. I did find it was a fraction too small for the mount. There is a micro gap between the edge of the print and the edge of the mount, but you can’t see it when the glass is on.
I also hung a picture next to the window.
Day 3 of #myhouseinseptember calls for ‘words and letters’ and these new @posterlounge prints fit well! The first #monochrome print is for my office, a reminder for the perfectionist in me! Swipe to see the one I have hung in Thea’s room: a pretty alphabet as she’s starting school tomorrow 😢 Do you have a favourite print in your house? • #myhometrend A post shared by Becky Pink Copywriter|Blogger (@pinkscharming) on
I’ve hung the ginkgo leaf print above the stairs.
Thea has her alphabet print above her bed.
I also got a bit muddled with sizes, and ended up with a birch magnetic poster hanger and a print that’s too small for it. This is how it looks- I definitely need to get a bigger print!With the magnetic strips, you can swap pictures in and out on a whim, so I think they are more flexible than the others I ordered. However they don’t come in white or black, which suits my decor better.

My tip is to create a wishlist and put all the ones that catch your eye into it. Then go back and filter through them to find your favourites.
