I love this photograph of Bob Dylan by Jerry Schatzberg spotted in the home of Andrew Rosen and Jenny Dyer’s Manhattan apartment in Elle Decor (see more here). After I saw this photo in Pinterest a couple of years ago, I realize instantly that I want this in my house too. You see, I’m a huge fan of rock stars and bands, -from the iconic Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Ramones, Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, to the more modern like The Killers, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Lenny Kravitz and so on- I love their music, it just rejuvenates me instantly when I listen to them. Besides t-shirts, I also love their photos in black in white, or in a very colorful Andy Warhol style. Taking a cue from the photo above, isn’t cool to use your favorite rock star photos as decorations, no matting, just in black frames? Below are some decor inspirations and where you could buy your favorite rock star’s photos to decorate in your house:
You can use their photo as a decoration in your fireplace just like this another photograph of Bob Dylan by Jerry Schatzberg in the living room of Miss James of Bleubird spotted on instagram.

Speaking of affordable, here’s an iconic framed NYC poster of John Lennon with one of his many famous quotes is perfect for a plain wall to look instantly like a gallery wall. Seriously, it’s very affordable! Only $19 without the frame of course.
Speaking of iconic, here’s a photo that launched countless copycats and made us think that it is safe and easy to pose for “cool photo” in the pedestrian lane, in the middle of the street. The Beatles’ Abby Road Wall Art available at PBTeen.

Next to John Lennon, I think, Bob Dylan is the most photographed and commonly displayed in homes. His iconic hair and sunglasses are timeless like this one on a Bob Dylan framed wall art.
Speaking of iconic, here’s the most famous John Lennon photo, framed and available in PBTeen.
If you’re tired of monochromatic rock star photos as decorations, you can buy this Kurt Cobain (Singing Pink) print by Jesse Frohman instead, as seen in Real Living (Australia). (Photo via Nick Scott and styling by Sarah Ellison.)
