The Soviet Union may have lost the Cold War, but their posters won the Aesthetic war. However, there are definitely places where a poster like this does not belong: for example, Alabama. Over the bed is another place. It's hard to create an intimate space with Fearless Leader watching over you.
Also, what is that coming from the bathroom? A melted Dalmatian?

Shame you can't get these in America, but this bookshelf from the Japanese furniture companyNissen is pretty amazing. It saves space, and keeps things looking clean. I'm a fan of open bookshelves because they say 'look at me, I'm cultured' but with these, you don't have to alphabetize or color-code your books. This is more functional for small spaces, has a clean, almost Ikea-esque aesthetic but doesn't really work for oversized books.
