    Wow, that's a beautiful collection of prints. My favorite is "Yuki" by Dufay Alice.

  • Kajsa says:

    Håller ständigt på att leta tavlor och posters till min framtida lya (är student) men jag tycker att det är galet svårt att hitta fina/snygga saker! "Fonte" by Wolf Alexandra är verkligen en bild jag har kollat på fleeera gånger men aldrig köpt, så nu måste jag ju var med och tälva och hoppas att jag kammar hem den! :D

    Toppen tävling och toppen blogg!

    It was pretty hard for me to choose between ''Cats of the World'' by Correll Gemma and ''Mai'' by Dufay Alice, but in the end the girl with the shoes (''Mai'' by Dufay Alice) wins!

    Why- just because it's so gorgeously simple and would fit perfectly in my hallway full of shoes (when the re-do is done) :)

    My favourite is Marie-Kong by Juery Franck. I would love put this poster on my daughters bedroom wall.

    Oh, this is great! I have to tell you a little story: The <a href="http://www.blogpartei.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/stairs1.jpg">stairs</a> of our little maisonette is occupied by a strict Russian lady named <a href="http://www.blogpartei.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/olga.jpg">Olga</a>. She is so dominant there, staring at <a href="http://www.blogpartei.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/stairs.jpg">white walls</a> that our <a href="http://www.blogpartei.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/toucan.jpg">toucan family</a> is hiding downstairs in the old trees. I think, the "Arrow head" could make Olga a little less scary for them. What do you think?

    I just love this giveaway :)

    this is the poster i would like to win..


    and you know why; because for the first time in my life i have my own place to life, i always shared a room with my little sister and now i have my own little place. I decorated it totally in my own style but i have one white wall that's still empty, waiting for a perfect poster, and this one would be the perfect one..

    Oh these are great! I'm looking for something colourful to my apartment and it would be nice to add a strong pink print to my collection - I'd pick Happywood by Keraval Gwen.

  • Elise says:

    Nice give away, I am looking on the site and have 4 options that I think are really beautiful. I didn`t want to spend to much time in deciding, because chances to win are small, lots of readers. But I did. Couldn`t choose between these four:

    http://en.laffichemoderne.com/photography/152-mountain-landscape-photo.html, http://en.laffichemoderne.com/photography/126-flower-photo-labokoff.html,http://en.laffichemoderne.com/photography/123-nature-photo-kea.html,http://en.laffichemoderne.com/photography/28-modern-vintage-photo-auvity.html.

    Noticing that they are all blueish (figurly speaking also) and with a sprankle of hope, widely viewed, bigger view?

    My end choice eventually is the first one: morning mountains by Matthew Doug, because it would look the best in the room with the rest of the colours it has in it and when I look at it it has a serenity, like: whats to worry? And the picture is quite timeless. So I would probably like it always in different times.

    Pleasseeeee I want to win :):):)

    I am really touched by "Coulure" by Wolf Alexandra! It shows sort of a frozen intimacy being sad and exciting at the same time.

  • Papeq says:

    Esto is great!

    Me gusta mucho "El arca y el diluvio" by Aimar Gustavo.

    2011-05-24 | 14:41:14
  • ELA says:

    Dear Emma,

    my favourite is also Kim by Dufay Alice. The little girl reminds me very much of my beloved sister who passed away 12 years ago... I sometimes have this picture in my mind that she is sitting on a swing and is just happy at this other place... :)

    2011-05-24 | 14:42:16

    Urban shadow 9 by Sikost Instant

    It reminds me of the song upside down with Diana Ross. Life shouldt be so serious :)

    2011-05-24 | 14:44:19
  • Maartje says:

    It was so much fun checking out the website and pivking a favourite! i felt like a kid in the candystore :)

    Heim Michela's 'int the night' instantly reminded me of summernights with my friends in high school. This portrait brings out sweet nostalgia for me. And the light..! The way the purple dress and the red hair stick out with the black background, it's simply beautiful. I know exactly where I'm going to hang this! (above my new secondhand retro buffet cabinet)

    Regards Maartje (from Holland)

    When the world sleeps by Dan-ah Kim

    I saw this picture once on your blog and saved it to my inspirational pictures map.

    Freedom and melancholy, and the colours and simplicity; would like it on the wall, because it gives some recognition to your/my feelings.

    2011-05-24 | 14:50:51
  • Chrissy Dieerste says:

    oh wow! i fell immediately in love with "Amarillo" by Joffre Véronique. beside the beauty of the painting, the colours and concept would perfectly fit in my room. plus for me as a student it's quite tough to afford it otherwise...

    i hope i'm the lucky one.

    2011-05-24 | 14:50:53
  • Picotta says:

    It's so hard to choose one, I really loved a lot of the prints! But if I have to say just one it will be.... Cats of the world by Gemma Correl, I saw the design some weeks ago and fell in love with it!

    And why? Well, my favourite animals are cats, the idea is so funny and the style of the drawing is adorable!

    They have so much incredible stuff, but the Alice Dufay drawing almost made me cry. I don't know, but as simply as it is, it is full of memories and hope.

  • Bec Wilson says:

    oh oh oh! Kim, Dufay Alice. I figure that although my house is a little rough around the edges, perhaps if i cover my walls with such gorgeousness no one will notice... hehe :D

    2011-05-24 | 15:03:16
  • Shelby Smith says:

    When the world sleeps by Dan-ah Kim.

    I would love to have this print because it reminds me so much of the times where I would just go away at night to clear my head.

    The print reminds me of the freedom i really have, and its also beautiful on it's own; without any meaning or memories attached.

    My favorite photo is: Little Sister by Heim Michela.

    L'affiche moderne... It is French?

    Then, I would speak french to say:

    la mélancolie du pays, là bas, si haut.

    Où la lumière est blanche et si douce.

    Quand reverrais-je ses ondes vibrantes.

    Jag älskar L´affiche Moderne! Har en underbar fototavla (into the night) av Michela Heim hemma. Men om jag vann skulle jag denna gång välja

    Mort d´un ange av Sartoris Jean-Christophe, en fototavla. Jag bara älskar motivet som får en att fundera lite över vad de gör och varför? När mina tavlor hemma får besökare att titta och vi börjar prata om den och att jag själv inte heller kan sluta titta på den lite nu och då. Skön känsla och så vill jag konst ska vara.

    Well well well, what a nice thing of you to do !

    I already knew l'Affiche moderne and had my eyes on a photography from Chamton Julie, which is called "Egypte 14".

    The first time I saw it, I immediately loved the contrast between the red light and the vivid blue sea - it's mesmerizing... and yet so simple.

    I hope you'll bring some joy to the white walls of my room !

  • rosina06 says:

    My absolute love-at-first-sight favorite is Nuages by Perdita Corleone. It would be perfect match (but not too matchy-matchy pair) with my new stone colored Furninova sofa.

    Amazing art! If I'm not the lucky one, I know what to ask from dear Mr. Santa Claus this year.

    That being said, please PICK ME!

    2011-05-24 | 16:17:37
  • Amna says:

    It is definitely " Yuki" by Dufay Alice because this little girl with pony tails looking at her rubber boots could have been easily me when I was about 6 years old and my mom bought me a pair! I never stopped jumping in the puddles since. My pony tails would get wet from it old the time!!!

    My pick would be Pirates by Doumont Gwenaëlle. I recently moved to Berlin and I am working on an all white/black working space. This would be the perfect fit next to my selfdrawn artwork. I love these crazy pictures with all these little storys. Its just fun to look at everytime you pass by.

    If I should pick a poster to win it would be this one: http://en.laffichemoderne.com/artwork-illustration/95-imeus-typographic-art.html

    I think it is important to remeber how to be a child, and go crazy sometimes otherwise the world will turn grey and boring, and I've just met the perfect guy who brings every shade of color into my life!

    I've recetly moved redecorated my rooms, and my walls are kind of empty because I'm afraid I will regret waht I hung up.. But this poster will just be amazing above my bed, as a morning-advice for the day.

    And it will be perfect in my little house

    I love Pirates by Doumont Gwenaëlle, it reminds me of my home city, Hong Kong. There are many many people, everyone has very busy life. The poster looks hectic but in a funny and cool way :). And i always love black and white :)

    Juery Frank's "Marie Kong" makes me wonder. A lot! About what that girl is up to.

    Will she step on the house? If yes, Why? -Is she angry?

    Is she only stepping over it? Maybe trying to follow/catch the model aeroplane?

    A playful photo yet melancholic in a way.

    LOVE 'Vintage Memories by Chaulafanita'! I've been redesigning my living room, making my own “Wine Crate, Leaning Ladder Bookcase” and a “3 File Drawer Entertainment Center” and adding pops of the color red (I'm obsessed) to walls and chairs, and this photo would be so at home in there. And, it brought an instant smile to my face, it’s beautiful!

    I am mesmerized by:

    Eat by Bluecitrusart

    I love the aesthetics of vintage mass consumption and this poster will remind me to take road trips. Also, it is a lovely blue which makes the picture almost look like an extra window in my kitchen (where I plan to hang up).

    Awesome shots! I've had this empty wall between my closet and bedroom door for the longest time! I've tried filling it with so many different posters but nothing seems to do the trick. La Fille du cafe by Auvity Cyril would be the perfect piece of art to showcase. It has a laid-back feel to it which would match the mood of my room perfectly!

    Hi! I'm from Australia, long time reader, first time enterer! Firstly, love the blog, it's my evening treat after work, have got SO many wicked ideas from your style and pics... I still keep a pic of your awesome kitchen for the day we finally buy and we can make one just like it! Love the benches.

    We rent at the moment and are trying to make the place pretty after getting married, but have no art of yet - so we're super excited to see these! "Red Apple" by Limoon would brighten up our loungeroom so much, haven't seen anything like it! Also, Barriere by Labokoff - what amazing colours eh. Great stuff, thanks for showing.

    I'm a family medicine physician opening a tiny new practice focused on keeping expenses very very low so that I can both charge patients less and spend more time with them - I won't even have any staff as part of this plan. In simple ways, I'm trying to make my space friendlier than medical offices usually are and am charmed by the line drawing Yuki - so disarming! How nervous could a patient be sitting across the table from such a drawing?

    Lagarde Sylvain, Du côté de chez Klein (2)


    I love this photo because I'm drawn into the experience of the foreground figure as he/she contemplates a cityscape appearing in odd perspective, stilted, curious, engaging, and nearly dehumanizing in its perspective. Nonetheless the figure animates and drives the composition; in spite of my mania for design and architecture, this photo shows me that ultimately it's the human component holds my attention best.

    My favorite poster would be Happywood by Keraval Gwen. We (family of five, kids years 10, 7, 3) are moving this summer to live in a cottage for the next two years while we will be buidling a house for us close to the cottage. The cottage is quite small and it will be a challange to stay sane during the rainy days ;)

    I believe the poster would keeps our spirits high and stear the imagination and fantasy of our kids who love animals and the nature.

    First of all thank you for your inspiring blog! I found you a while ago via RtiF.

    Thank you also for your great giveaway! The gallery and shop is a very nice new acquaintance.

    To me great artwork is stimulating and exhilarating, an escape from the banalities of dull everyday life. So my choice is Avec tant d'inconscience by Perdita Corleone where crazy meets beautiful.
