In the movie It’s A Wonderful Life the friends of George Bailey try to help him feel like he is spending his honeymoon in the tropics by putting a bunch of tropical island posters in the broken out windows of his new run down home. They didn’t have to go to the island posters store to buy island posters because the police man friend of George Bailey’s managed to “convince” a local advertising company to donate them. They set the right mood and while they didn’t actually take George Bailey and his new wife Mary to any tropical destination, they did their best to set the proper mood and help lift the spirits of the newly married couple.

It is a great example of how sometimes an island poster can offer just a little get away from your every day life and that is exactly what atmosphere posters are supposed to do.

An atmosphere poster is one that takes great pains to present some sort of highly desirable scene in high resolution, as large as possible, so that you feel like you are really there. These are usually very popular on the walls of the bedrooms of teenagers or on the walls of cubicles where people work. If you are not where you want to be then there really is nothing wrong with getting an inexpensive substitute that makes you believe, if just for a little while, that you are there and that you are having a great time. Many people will use large posters of skiing in Aspen, or snowboarding in Wyoming, or even hiking through the wilderness of Colorado. But most people seem to prefer the image of a tropical island sitting in the sun on the cool blue water pressed up against the perfectly blue sky with maybe a white cloud or two floating by. Some posters have that camera angle that lets you see that the water is so clean that you can see everything in it from top to bottom and it just makes you want to be there. Sometimes there is a picture of an entire island in the frame and it just looks so perfect that it calms people and helps them get on with their day.

It is natural for people to want to be in another place or wished they lived in another time. If that wasn’t natural then no one would ever go on vacation or watch old time movies. So that feeling of needing a temporary get away by gazing at a poster size image of a tropical island is natural and in many ways healthy. But it does bring up one very interesting and potentially mind boggling question. If it is true that people that live or work in the city will put up a picture of a tropical island as a temporary get away, and if it is true that it is natural to want to be somewhere else other than where you are, then does that mean that people that live in Hawaii have posters of scenes from Buffalo on their cubicle walls?
