I know what you’re thinking – what in God’s name is a not-yet home? Well, we don’t get the keys to our new place until the 28th but of course, I’ve been picking up pieces in the meantime. So far Keiran and I have managed to acquire most of the main furniture bits like sofas, a bed, a mattress, a coffee table etc. etc., but until all of the big ticket items have been ticked off the list, decorative pieces have taken a backseat.
Welllll, mostly. I haven’t been able to help myself from bagging a few baskets here and there, and you all know I’m partial to a mug or two (or three, or four…). When it comes to wall art, I’m also really picky. As much as I love my friends and family I’m definitely not one for having personal pictures on display, but then I also love the aesthetic of lots of mismatching frames in different colours and sizes, filling up a wall with images and ideas.
That’s where Desenio come in. If, like me, you do a fair bit of blog and Google searching for unique homeward pieces, then you’ve probably already heard of these guys. If not, then let me fill you in. Desenio are your one stop shop for all things wall art. Rather than picking up expensive prints from Etsy and then having to source a frame to fit yourself, Desenio stock a huge range of super affordable prints in all shapes and sizes, with all of the corresponding picture frames to boot. Whether you’re looking for something abstract, inspirational or something to simply fill a gap and set the mood, then these guys have got you covered. As they say themselves on their website: “much of our art is design by Swedish illustrators and designers. Our business concept is to help our customers create beautiful and inspiring homes in a simple and affordable way.” Now that’s definitely something I can get on board with.
And then there’s the Shadow Poster, the Winter Mountains Print and the Desert Print. None of these hold particular meaning to me, but I thought the tones mixed really well with the rest of my choices and I like the escapism made possible through the location shots. With all of the prints I’ve mixed and matched in sizes and frame colour, opting for a combination of black and gold that should work quite well throughout the house. I haven’t yet decided which pieces are going where, but I’m thinking the cow shot already has a home in the living room. I picked up a cow-print stool recently, so in a morbid way, it makes sense.
And the important stuff! Desenio are offering you lovely lot 25% off all posters (apart from the handpicked section, sorry!) from 18th April – 20th April using the code ‘chloeplumstead25’. Catchy, huh? Let me know what you think of my choices, and if you pick some prints up yourself, do let me know in the comments down below or come and find me over on Twitter or Instagram.
