A Room of My Own – Finding Inspiration with Poster Store
A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.Virginia Woolf
Deep in my soul I’ve always felt like a “writer.” Does that make me sound pretentious? Alas, it’s the truth and I’m sticking to it!
Whether I’m writing fiction or pieces for this blog, though, I’m almost always writing something. (And when I’m not, I’m at least thinking of new things to write.) Which brings me to our dear friend, Virginia Woolf and her notion that, in order to write, a woman must have a room of her own. Sure, she might have meant it metaphorically speaking, but I think there’s a lot to be said for having your own space in order to create.
So, when I was given the opportunity to collaborate with Poster store, it was the perfect chance for me to curate a writing room of my own.
More about Poster Store
Poster Store is a Swedish company with a plethora of posters, prints, and frames – everything you need to up your home decor game.
They have a huge selection of wall art and their Scandinavian designs are perfect for achieving a clean, beautiful, and minimalist space. Plus, their products are beyond affordable! You could create your very own gallery wall for less than $200!
Something that also really stood out to me was the quality of the paper. I don’t know about you, but when I heard the word ‘poster,’ I thought of the type of posters I used to hang on my wall as a teenager. But, I was pleasantly surprised when my order came in – everything is printed on thick, high quality, and sustainably produced paper (so, you know, you’re helping the world too.)
The only downside is that they have a HUGE selection. I’m talking HUGE. MASSIVE. So many different options to choose from! And there are new posters released every Tuesday. But, because of that, there’s something for everyone.
Which, of course, brings me back to me ?

Creating a Room of My Own
For me, I like to have a few basics on hand whenever I’m writing: coffee (always!), a comfy place to sit, and something beautiful to look at – something so that when I take my eyes off the computer screen, I don’t just see a boring blank wall.
Like I said before, Poster Store has a huge selection of prints with themes ranging from nature to fashion – which is what I gravitated towards.
I find inspiration in beauty, so I went with black and white fashion prints that, in some way, spoke to me.
I absolutely fell in love with the Vintage Camera Girl Poster, a print of a scantily clad woman taking a photo – it just immediately struck me as something I wanted in my writing room! Along with her, I wanted something softer, more elegant so I chose a peaceful print of a woman reading.
And, as a not-so-secret admirer of celebrity culture, I also added in some prints of my favorite inspirational figures – Marilyn Monroe, Kurt Cobain (hey, I find him beautiful!) and Brigitte Bardot.
I do a lot of my actual writing in my room, so I wanted to hang my prints either over my bed or near my bedroom bookshelf, which is what I ended up doing.
A Room of Her Own
As beautiful and inspirational as I find Marilyn, she’s not exactly the best choice for a nursery.
I mean, I suppose she could be… but I wanted to stay on brand with the Boho greenery theme I’ve got.
So, I curated a mini gallery wall fit for a little one with these insanely adorable furry friends!
Yep, there’s a whole section of prints and posters for kids – with options for cute and cuddly baby decor, Harry Potter fans, cheeky Beyoncé references, and educational prints.
There are so many options available for different ages, genders, and styles, but I picked Elephant Friend and Hedgehog Friend because they matched perfectly with the dark green and rose color scheme.
