Making our house a home with Desenio*

I'm one of those people who thinks that a room isn't complete without some prints hanging on the wall. I could honestly spend hours looking at prints online, and I've found the perfect website. Desenio are a Swedish company and they have more prints & frames than you can shake a stick at. Whatever your style you can guarantee that you'll find a print that you love on the Desenio website, and the best part is, it's all totally affordable.

With baby on the way, a few home improvements are going to be starting soon, starting with the bedrooms. All three bedrooms in our house are getting a make over. The playroom is being transformed into a nursery, Ava's having a new bed and a rejig of her bedroom furniture and we are hopefully having a complete bedroom transformation ourselves. This all called for some seriously cool print, so in stepped Desenio.

After choosing my prints and frames from their children's print range, which took me a lot longer than anticipated due to the wide selection of prints, I waited patiently for them to arrive. Upon opening my parcel I was so impressed with the packaging. Having travelled from a different country you'd be forgiven for thinking that something may arrive a little chipped or broken but Desenio take the utmost care in packaging their items.

The prints arrived rolled up in a cardboard roll and the frames were carefully bubble wrapped. I couldn't wait to see the print I'd picked.

I'd firstly chosen some A4 prints and white frames for the nursery. With us being once again team yellow, I thought it might be difficult to find gender neutral prints, but I was wrong. In truth I was spoilt for choice!

Just to give you an idea of how well priced it really is, my prints were £4.49 each and the white wood frames were £6.57 each,

We're planning to paint the baby's nursery in grey with some hints of yellow so these prints will fit in perfectly.

For Ava's bedroom I've decided to do a little gallery wall, she chose the deer poster in an A4 size and I chose the other prints in a postcard size to surround it.

Again I chose the white wooden frames for these prints.

For our bedroom I went for something a little different. Part of the website is dedicated to "the perfect pair." Two prints, that the team at Desenio think look fantastic together side by side. I took inspiration from this and chose two prints myself, from their print section, that I felt would look good paired together. I then opted for the gold frame to give them a glamourous look.

I was so impressed when they arrived and think they look great paired together.

I also got some postcard sized monochrome prints for a black & white photo gallery idea that I have for the stairs.

I'm hoping it won't be long until we have the house as we would like it and I can't wait to show you around when we have all of the prints set up properly. Keep your eyes peeled!

I can't recommend Desenio enough for good quality, affordable prints.

*I was sent these items free of charge in exchange for an honest review
