As you guys probably know, I’ve recently moved back home and I have spent the past couple of weeks creating an office/walk in wardrobe space full of creativity and a calming, stress-free bedroom to chill in. The bulk of the decorating is done with just a few more finishing touches to add but it’s lacking a little bit of a personal touch. It’s like it needs the cherry on top of the cake or some art on the walls! I took some time out one evening to add the finishing touches to my little spaces using wall art by Desenio.
If you fancy buying your own, the code “thejulyjournal” gives 25% off posters* between 3rd-5th April. You can follow @desenio for more inspiration! *Except for handpicked-/collaboration posters and frames.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of months then you will have definitely heard of Desenio. They have hundreds of photos, quotes, wall art prints and a selection of frames to chose from which can inject any wall with a bit of personality. They make the whole selection process of products so easy that it was hard for me to narrow down my choices! One of the website features that I really like is the Perfect Pair feature – it automatically gives you some inspiration of what prints work together and suggests a matching frame, ensuring all your wall art comes prepped and ready to hang. Super handy for those new to DIY or not so good at it like me…
The first two prints that I chose from the site were for my office/walk-in wardrobe. The room itself is full of motivational quotes and inspiration to create a work space that I love. I’ve also wanted to go for a slight feminine theme as it’s also my walk-in wardrobe with plenty of inspiration for outfits and styles. I really like the idea of having two prints that sit side by side; one smaller than the other on the top shelf of my desk.
The first photo art print, is a photograph called Black by artist Anna Subbotina. I wanted to portray my love for beauty in some way and I think is was the perfect addition to my office. It’s definitely something that is either a love or hate kinda thing but in my case I think it is amazing and so simplistic! I got this in the 50x70cm however there is an option to buy it in four other sizes.
I’ve had my eye on something similar to the Girl Power poster for such a while now. I love conveying my love for all things girl power so it was only right to get the GRL PWR quote print to go side by side to the Anna Subbotina image. It’s so simple but powerful at the same time and that’s what I love about it. I wanted to keep the images quite simple as I have a selection of other images above my desk and the room is full of clothes due to my open wardrobe.
My bedroom has a strong calming theme and to coincide with this I wanted to chose a range of prints that I could look at when I wake up or go to bed and immediately feel at peace and relaxed. The Hygge definition quote that I have put above my bed was the perfect choice. The definition, I feel, describes my bedroom perfectly.
The final two prints I brought were the Green Banana Leaves and Green Palm Tree for the wall as you come in my bedroom. I chose these because I feel as though nature is the perfect addition to create a calming atmosphere. The colours within the prints even represent calm and peaceful which immediately changes the feel of the room. They were all super affordable with the prices starting at just £2.95 for the smallest size. Bargain!
If you are on the hunt for some affordable wall art to update your room, flat or home then I highly recommend checking out Desenio for a variety of photos, quotes and prints. Remember you can use the code “thejulyjournal” gives 25% off posters* between 3rd – 5th April.
