Art is such an important thing in home decor so I’m always happy to find something I like and that goes well with my aesthetics and style of my home – my new photo art print from Faces of Nepal collection definitely fits in perfectly!
Not only does the photos look beautiful in their simplicity, there’s also a deeper story behind them. Namely, Faces of Nepal is a charity project by German photographer Sophia Maier in collaboration with Posterlounge. The proceeds from the sale of her photos are donated to the initiative Hilfe für Nepal, which helps rebuild the country after the earthquake of 2015.
Faces of Nepal collection is sold by Posterlounge, an online shop for high-quality art prints, movie posters, modern illustrations and beautiful photography created by both contemporary and historical artists. They have really wide selection of wall art and no matter what art style you prefer you probably find something that fits in. The company is based in Leipzig and they ship worldwide.
I’m happy to announce that Posterlounge is giving away a photo print from Faces of Nepal collection to one of you, dear readers! Just write the name of your favorite photo from the collection in comments and you are in! The winner can choose the photo he or she would like to get. Giveaway is open worldwide and the winner will be announced here and on our Facebook page on 3rd March.

Today I want to introduce you one really lovely online shop THE POSTER CLUB. It’s Copenhagen-based webshop offering a carefully curated selection of posters fitting perfectly into every Scandinavian style interior. They ship internationally and that’s even better – shipping will be completely free if you order 2 or more posters! Their collection includes many of my old and new favorite prints, from example the ones from My Deer, Playtype, Kristina Krogh and Kristina Dam.
To get to know a bit more about THE POSTER CLUB I asked its founder Thomas Nissen some questions which he kindly agreed to answer.
Tell us a little bit of your background.
Before launching THE POSTER CLUB I have worked a couple of years in different marketing related positions and prior to that, owned a clothing store for five years in Copenhagen, selling menswear from high end fashion brands. But design and interiors has always been a passion to me, so when the opportunity came to open up my webshop I had little doubt, that it was the right thing for me to do.
How you came to the idea to launch THE POSTER CLUB?
The idea behind THE POSTER CLUB actually came when I was searching for some posters to our home a year ago. I really had a hard time finding something that I liked and the selection in the different webshops were often either very limited or on the contrary huge with posters of various standards, making it almost impossible to know where to begin. I felt like what I needed, was a shop that brought all the good stuff together for me in one place. And that’s really what I’m trying to do with THE POSTER CLUB.
What are your plans for THE POSTER CLUB?
Well, since we launched, only three months ago, everything has been quite hectic and busy – but in a good way. Coming out on the other side, it is now time to look at some of the many ideas we have to make our shop even better and we expect to implement some really unique features within the next couple of months. Besides that, we continue to add new posters to our selection on a weekly basis, and have a lot of exciting new stuff on its way – especially photo art, which is a trend that is really booming right now. So expect to see much more of that in the near future.
What inspires you?
I spend hours every day browsing interior blogs and magazines, Instagram and Pinterest in search for new posters to the shop and to keep up with the trends. That is by far the biggest source of inspiration to me and it never gets boring. Its simply amazing how many talented people are out there. On a personal level, me being from Denmark, I’m definitely inspired by the minimalistic design that Scandinavia is so well known for, which I guess also shows in the simplicity and “look-and-feel” of my webshop.
What is your advice to someone thinking about launching an (online) business but still in doubt?
If you think you have a good idea, I say go for it. And don’t be afraid if some else is already doing the same. Just do it your own way and try doing it better. There is nothing more satisfying than building something up from the bottom and seeing it grow. But remember to be realistic about it, it takes time for people to get to know you. The good thing about doing business online however, is that you can actually often start out by doing it a long side your normal full time job, just to see the potential of your idea/concept before going all in.
Thank you Thomas for your time, it was so interesting to get to know a bit more about you and THE POSTER CLUB!
As I said on Monday, this is my birthday week and I promised you a surprise, so this is it! One lucky person has a chance to win a set of two gorgeous Strap leather hangers designed by Mathilda Clahr (black and natural coloured) and Le Sac en Papier paper bag from my lovely blog friend Norsu. Scroll down to the end of the post to find out how you can enter!
When we were planning this giveaway it came out that Nat’s (one of the lovely ladies behind Norsu) little daughter will turn 3 on exactly the same day as I will turn 30! So this is a really special giveaway, celebrating two birthdays, nice coincidences and friendships found via blogging! Nat from Norsu took it all together very beautifully:
Never did we realise we’d have so much in common when we first met Anu. We had spent endless hours trawling through the blog, excited and giddy as each article was posted. We’d decided it was “the source” for everything Scandi. It was our go-to place for new and emerging designers, must-have products to bring to Australia, and most importantly, the place where we would go to escape everyday life to enter the world of beautiful and inspiring interiors. There was no way we could keep this gem to ourselves and we decided to share it with our loyal followers, and of course there was no better place than Instagram to do it. We posted one of our favourite photos from Decordots and that was the day we met our now lovely friend Anu. Since then we’ve exchanged emails, shared our favourite products, gushed over styled photography… and supported each other just like friends do. Not only does Anu share our obsession for Scandinavian design, she shares her birthday with my daughter Annabel. As Anu turns 30, my little lady turns 3. So today, we know there’s reason to celebrate. Not only to Anu and Annabel on their special days, but to everyone who makes new friends for life through a shared passion… just like us.
