When we bought our house 6 years ago I think we moved in with the idea that we could re-do everything room by room and we could just work our way through things. We only managed to do 2 rooms before Erin was born and we did a fair bit of work on the garden instead. Owning our own home has never really been what we thought it would be and it’s taken us all of this time to really know what we want.
Something I have hated about our house for the longest time is the plain walls. Some of our rooms are quite big and there is a lot of wall space. Committing to something on the walls seemed like a really big deal to me, because if I didn’t like it, it would be an expensive mistake to change.
Not that long ago we received a really exciting delivery from Desenio, a company known for their Scandinavian designed prints. The Desenio website can be a little bit like getting lost down a rabbit hole, but in the best possible way. There are so many prints to choose from and the website is really easy to navigate; although you will get sucked in looking at all of the fantastic possibilities.
Sometimes, I find it hard to figure out what prints might go together, if they’re not already laid out for me. The Desenio website makes choosing prints pretty simple, and that’s something I definitely need. Not only can you search through various categories and sizes but there is also a fantastic gallery wall planner.
The gallery wall planner is able to offer ideas for prints that go together and you can add everything to your basket really easily, frames included. If you’re someone who wants something beautiful but don’t want to think about how to do it then this is definitely something for you.
You can also design your own gallery wall from scratch and the website has a great planner for this. I used this feature myself to plan out the prints I wanted for my living room wall. I was able to choose three images in the size I needed and I could play about with the designs I chose and which order they would go in. This really helped me to visualise how they would look in my living room.
Before, we had some large black and white prints and while I still like them, I wanted something brighter and with more colourful. I found some fantastic travel themed prints which were stunning. I chose prints showing New York, Paris and Barcelona; two of which we have been to and one that both John and I want to visit.
To go with the three prints, I chose black frames to help them stand out. On each print you are able to choose what size you would like and then there are options to choose frames at the same time. I think this takes out a lot of stress and time out of then having to find frames to match once the prints have been delivered. It’s nice to know that you get everything you need at the same time.
I had also been meaning to add something cool to Erin’s bedroom for some time now but I was waiting until I thought she was old enough to not try to pull it down. I was really pleased to see that there are quite a few options from Desenio that were suitable for children. I instantly fell in love with this map of the world and thought it would look nice with a neutral coloured frame.
Our new prints from Desenio have really brightened up the walls of our home. Instead of being boring, and lacking colour, they are now bright and fun and they really add something different to the room. I already have a few more prints in mind for other rooms
