Celebrity Poster Boys (and Girls)

If you’re a fan of the Canadian actor and director Ryan Gosling, star of The Notebook, Crazy Stupid Love and The Ides of March, you’ll love the loos at the Bang Bang restaurant in San Diego!

Audrey Hepburn’s most famous print must be from Breakfast at Tiffany’s showing her as the sophisticated woman with her hair up and smoking through a long elegant cigarette holder and wearing sparkling jewels and long gloves.

Making your own selfie-walls for your smallest room

I guess it could be copied if you printed off images of the star or any other of your choice. Or you could have family selfies emblazoned across your cloakroom walls. There are also a number of wallpapers that feature unknown faces which could give you a similar effect…
