[AD] The past few months have seen us all spending a lot longer indoors than we ordinarily would and making changes to our home have come to the forefront of our mind.
Big renovations are out of the question at this present time, but filling our walls with beautiful things is something I love and instantly adds something different with minimal effort.
Staring at that vast expanse of plain wall can sometimes be a little daunting though and the kind of look you are thinking of and how you would position your art can be a little overwhelming.
This is where Desenio have come to the rescue – not only are they suppliers of a vast range of prints, posters and frames, they also offer a fantastic service that allows you to create your own gallery wall online before taking that big leap.
Desenio have an ever changing selection of different galley walls on display with a plethora of different styles, colours and materials to suit anybody’s needs and taste.
After browsing all that they have on offer you will hopefully have a clearer idea of the look you are going for in your own home and with the use of their online tool you can build a gallery wall with your own selection of prints.
These can be moved around, swapped in and out for different pictures until you have built your perfect gallery.
My husband and I often disagree on artwork…I usually win the battle; but this has been a great way for us to work together and blend both of our tastes to create something we are both really happy with.
We have a beautiful wall in our living room that we created using the gallery planner a while ago now and are now moving into the dining room so watch this space!
[GIFTED] Trying to please a teenager is a struggle at the best of times, and as I have recently found out these times are particularly challenging when it comes to decorating their room!
Of course any suggestions that come from me are poopooed and when I ask for her input it turns into a battle ground.
One thing however that was relatively painless was picking out some prints for her walls.
We have very different tastes and I have to admit I find it really hard to let the kids have free reign sometimes. When they hit their teens though it is important even more important to let them express themselves and what better way than through art.
Izzy was lucky enough to be able to choose a selection of prints from Poster Store who offer a huge range of posters of different sizes and genres so there will be something to suit absolutely everyone. They also offer a vast selection of frames so you can have the finished piece all ready to hang as soon as it arrives.
Izzy is a big lover of monochrome and there were an abundance of prints for her to choose from.
Over her chest of draws she went for one statement piece that showed her love for her favourite city.
Above her bed she went for a gallery wall and gained a lot of her inspiration for this from the mood boards on Poster Stores sites.
Her love of fashion shone through with her choices with the statement Chanel piece being her favourite.
Izzy went for an all black theme with the frames that were fantastic quality and set the art work off perfectly.
Wether you are decorating a teens room like me or have a completely different project underway then Poster Store is definitely worth perusing.
A few of you will know that we have recently moved and I have been really excited to be able to start a fresh and put my own stamp on it. We are lucky enough to have really high ceilings which make for a wonderfully light and airy space but on the downside it has left us with huge expanses of bare walls to fill.
The lounge for us is the hub of the home and the place we spend the most time so it was important to get this room ready first. Our sofas are a neutral cream colour as are the walls so i needed to add some colour as neutral really isn’t me.
I have been lucky enough to work with Desenio who offer a huge range of posters and prints that offer something to incorporate all tastes.
The fact that they have thousands of pieces to offer was a little overwhelming to begin with, especially as I had no idea what I was really after. But with the help of their themed sections and amazing gallery wall that allows you to choose exactly how you would like to see the pieces on the wall it wasn’t long before I had made my selection.
I went for a few motivational quotes which I hope will encourage the children to think positively by seeing them everyday, a little bit of abstract art and of course a big splash of colour with a small palm print and one of my favourite ladies – Freida Kahlo.
The prints all arrived promptly and were beautifully packaged and took no time to put into the frame and get onto the wall. The fact that you can select the frames at the same time as the prints was a massive pull for me as it saves dragging from the shops trying to get frames to fit.
If you are looking to create a gallery wall of fill a small space with something beautiful then Desenio is the place to look.
