The Artwork That Is Bringing Personality Into My Home – Plus a Special Discount for You!

Gallery Wall Desenio Print

A few months ago I shared my first home tour, which was shot 10 weeks after I moved into my West London apartment. By that point I was fully settled in, and had almost finished decorating the space. Only one sticking point remained… There was a dramatic lack of artwork – specifically in one corner of my bedroom and on the expansive wall in my open-plan kitchen and living area.

I love the white walls, which fill the apartment with light and make the rooms look much larger than they are. But I definitely needed a few bursts of colour to bring some vibrance and personality to the space.

If you listen to the Let’s Discuss podcast, or follow me on Instagram, you will know that I absolutely adore Desenio. The online poster boutique offers a wide variety of prints and illustrations, which all play nicely in rooms that have a Scandinavian or Nordic design vibe. So, as soon as I had my furniture in place and was ready to shop for artwork, I headed straight to Desenio…

There was a vast amount of empty wall space in one corner of my bedroom, and it took me a while to decide what to do with it. At one point I considered designing a bold gallery wall, but ultimately decided that might look a little overwhelming.

So instead I opted to go down a more sophisticated and classic route, and searched for a trio of calming prints that could run in unison.

Desenio makes it really easy to shop, as they categorise their prints by theme. So I had a look through their “nature” and “illustration” collections, and quickly settled on the monstera and banana leaf posters, pictured above.

I’m so happy with the result, and think they really pop against my rose-pink bed frame and leaf print cushions.

In my living space I decided to go for something more graphic, and paid homage to my favourite city with a map of Manhattan. And, sticking to the travel theme, I hung it alongside a Prada Marfa poster. Yes, it’s a little bit of a fashion girl cliché, but I’ve long held a fascination with Texas, and am desperate to visit the small desert city of Marfa. So it has personal significance to me.

I also purchased frames for all of the posters at Desenio, as that way I could guarantee they’d be the right size and come with the correct fixtures fitted on the back. They’re so easy to hang – you just need a hammer and a pin!

The walls of my apartment definitely feel less sparse now, and it’s begun to feel like a real home that truly reflects my personality. If your walls could also do with some new artwork, be sure to check out Desenio’s amazing collection of posters.
