Making a House a Home with Desenio

We've been decorating the house room by room for the last couple of months and it's now at the stage where I can actually select the finishing touches for certain spaces *hooray*. I think it's the final few pieces like plants, candles and wall art that really transform a house into a home, and gives a room some style. It was therefore lovely to select some prints from Desenio - especially after gathering so much inspiration from their Instagram page!

Desenio have a large collection of posters and prints, which are primarily Scandinavian, that help you to create the atmosphere you desire - whether that be a sassy teen bedroom or a relaxing bathroom. If you're seeking classic black and white, retro items, bold quotes or something cute for a nursery, they have some great quality products and they of course have the perfect frames and accessories to enable you to get your purchases up and on the walls or shelves quickly. 

Desenio Chop It Like It's Hot Quote Framed Print

One thing I really liked about the website was just how simple it was to narrow down my search to find the exact colours and categories I wanted. The gallery wall tool was also really handy as you can view themes and see how the products you want will look positioned in advance, making visualising your prints together a lot easier. I was also pleasantly surprised by the prices as they really are affordable whilst making such a big impact in our three bed home.

Chop It Like It's Hot Desenio Framed Print in Kitchen

I decided to get a print for the kitchen first. We have graphite appliances teamed with red coloured toaster, kettle etc and black worktops so I thought it would be nice to have something over by the oven where its slightly bare. 'Chop It Like It's Hot' captures my sense of humour perfectly, combining my love for music and cooking too. This is available in a variety of sizes to suit your space and I opted for the 21 x 30 version with a black metal frame.

DesenioGeometric Heart Print in Bathroom

I've recently given the upstairs bathroom a new tropical theme so it's full of green and gold with wicker accessories. This little shelf was lacking some colour so I picked up a plant in The Range along with an Ikea candle and then got this lovely little geometric heart print to match with the pot pattern. I've also got 2 larger leaf prints (Big Monstera No 3 and Monstera Three) to go on a picture ledge but I'm waiting for a new mirror to arrive and be fitted before these can be displayed. I think the splashes of colour will help finish the room off.

Finally I picked up some feminine prints for Moomin's bedroom. With lots of pink, rose gold and grey in this area this duo (Bubbles and Love Note) went really well with the style. I've placed them in her Kallax unit at the moment to cover the bits and bobs she has on the shelves.
