Affordable artwork {My first, probably of many, purchases from Desenio}

Have you ever seen a large piece of artwork, fallen in love but not loved the price? Is there a large expanse of wall in your home which you’d love to fill but haven’t found the perfect piece at a reasonable price? Well Desenio might be just what you need! A recent client of mine along with a few fellow bloggers had mentioned this company so I thought I must have a nosey to see what all the fuss is about.

My list of 2017 house projects is pretty long and a few of them involve a bit of switching up between rooms. The artwork above the bed in the second bedroom is next up to get a re-shuffle. My beloved tattooed beauty will be moving to our master bedroom (she really is too pretty to be kept in the spare room) which will leave a gap in the gallery wall above the bed and my thoughts turned to Desenio!

They’re a Swedish company founded in 2010 so relatively new to the interior design scene. I had a great time browsing through their selection of hundreds of prints which are handily categorised down the left hand side of the website; perfect if you have something particular in mind. Alternatively, like me, just click on ‘all prints’ and happy scrolling!  There really is something for everyone as their collection includes everything from ultra-modern abstract prints to vintage-inspired designs, inspirational quotes, maps and cityscapes and black and white photography. I’ve since seen artwork on Instagram and Pinterest and the like and realised afterwards, aaah that was a Desenio print!

Another great thing about their website is that they offer so many inspirational pictures of their artwork which is particularly useful for gallery wall ideas. Here are some of my favourites…

DANDELION, FOREST, WHITE OWL & BLACK FEATHER – DESENIO
COCO, WHITE HORSE, FOREST, COCO BEAUTY BEGINS, BUTTERFLY BLACK – DESENIO
COTTON PLANT BLUE, FEELINGS, SEAFOAM & HUMMINGBIRD – DESENIO
BALANCE, COTTON PLANT, DANDELION, DREAMER B&W, ELIZABETH TAYLOR, HUMMINGBIRD, LOVE L, NEBULA, SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND & TRIANGLES BLUE – DESENIO

I really admire the atmosphere these prints seem to create, particularly when grouped together in a gallery wall!

By clicking on the ‘perfect pair’ tab, you’ll see loads of combinations of artwork which work well together. Here are some of my favourites…

ABSTRACT NO.1 & DREAM WITHOUT FEAR- DESENIO

 

CLOUD & WILD BLUE – DESENIO

 

HERBS GREEN & BON APPETIT – DESENIO

 

FOREST & BALANCE – DESENIO

Desenio also offer a wide range of framing options in all sorts of colours and finishes which makes it a real ‘one stop shop’ for all of your artwork needs. I particularly like these wooden hanging frames…

Oak poster hanger 51 cm £11.49 – DESENIO

So with all of this beautiful artwork, narrowing down the options and choosing just one print was tough! After a lot of deliberation, I finally settled on this…

A beautiful black and white photographic print. Doesn’t it look lovely here?

BIRD SKY POSTER £5.49 – £24.99 – DESENIO

Although it’s a photograph of captured movement, of birds flying among the clouds in the sky, it’s got a calming, familiar feel to it. A perfect choice for a bedroom I thought. I also loved its balance between feminine and masculine style, something I hope the fiancé will appreciate!  I went for a 40 x 50 cm sized print which was £14.99  I’ve also bought a simple white frame for £11.74 which I will spray paint copper and hang amongst the other copper frames in the spare room. It should really pop against the Farrow & Ball stiffkey blue walls in there and create a bit of drama! I’ll also get a few more velvet cushions in shades of grey for the bed. I’m so excited to see how it looks and I’ll show you the result in a few weeks time! So for a grand total of £26.23 I’ve got a large piece of framed art which I’m really pleased with.

With such a wide range of prints at great prices, Desenio really is a great place for affordable art.

What do you think of my choice? Which are your favourite Desenio prints? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. This blog post could not have come at a better time! I was just taking a break from scrolling through your generic sites looks for some inspiration for art work for the new living room and this is perfect! I love how the inspirational quotes can be teamed up with artwork…I’ll definitely be taking a closer look!
    I can’t wait to see your spare room with its new additions!

    1. It’s such a fab website isn’t it Katie! I’m glad you feel the love for Desenio too. There are some really beautiful quotes in such pretty fonts, I also love the cheesy chat-up ones have you seen those? “On a scale from one to ten you are a nine and I’m the one you need” haha! Well happy shopping! It was pay day this week after all 🙂
