OK, I gush about a lot of things on this little blog of mine, and I know I write about my “latest favourite home addition” A LOT – but I can honestly say that the second these beauties were shipped over from Scandinavian brand, Desenio, I was in love.
Included in the plans I had to tie my living room decor together more cohesively, was adding some fresh art work to the walls. I’d been looking for posters online and Desenio seemed to offer some amazing art prints – think signature Scandinavian style with a splash of colour here and there.
I actually have all four prints hanging up now, but the lighting in my living room is so whack I couldn’t have done them justice so to the spare room we went.
I’m going to start at the beginning and say this website offers sooooo much choice it’s unreal. And what I love is, so you don’t feel overwhelmed and unable to know where to start, there’s inspiration of how you can group the prints together to create a gallery wall. I love this idea so much and it gave me ideas of potential pieces to pop in my basket I might not have come across.
The quality is amazing. Not just amazing for the price. Yes, these prints are purse-friendly (ranging from £2.29 to £60), but you’d expect to be paying so much more when they arrive and you feel the thickness of the paper and the matte finish. I’ve ordered posters and prints online before and they’ve felt cheap – because they were cheap – so I couldn’t really argue. But boy, I struck gold with this lot.
I came across these two abstract prints (measuring 50 x 70) and instantly knew they’d look amazing over my dinning table, paired together. One has a gold paint splash running through it, and I love the beautiful blue marbled effect they have.
The next print was called Simplicity (measuring 50 x 70). I fell in love with its – you guessed it – simplicity. I wanted to add splashes of pink to the room so this light sugar tone was perfect to hang over my sideboard. Plus, I’m a sucker for typography prints.
Finally, I wanted to go with something a little smaller (measuring 30×40), and how could I resist this banana palm leaf print? I think this is a negative of a photograph, which has then had colour added back into it – it really is gorgeous and looks great with the thin gold frame.
Looking for frames online can sometimes be a minefield, which is why I decided to just get all these frames included in the order. Again, I’ve ordered frames from similar places and the quality has been rubbish (which is why I don’t promote them on here), but these are sturdy, yet not too heavy to hang with normal nails.
I’ve decided to just use gold frames throughout my living room now, so I’m currently building up quite a ‘healthy’ shopping basket on Desenio for when I next get paid. I want to fill my two Ikea shelves I have on the wall with a variety of pink, blue and green prints in different sizes but all in the same frames.
Just a little disclaimer – this post is in partnership with Desenio, and although it’s not a paid post, I was kindly sent these prints to blog about. Trust me, I wouldn’t gush like this if I didn’t want you to go spend your own hand earned cash on these beauties. You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
