Have you come across affordable artwork from Desenio?

I’ve always been a fickle soul when it comes to interiors. Brimming with enthusiasm for one thing — until I have my head turned by something else.

Forever scrolling through Right Move, looking for the ‘perfect’ home.

(I don’t think it exists by the way, there are just too many amazing houses for just one to be perfect!)

The walls in our houses have changed colour a number of times; from white to charcoal grey, dark grey, deepest, darkest navy back to white.

On repeat.

I’ve collected Living Etc magazines since they first hit the news stands and spend hours poring over gorgeous room schemes; planning my dream kitchen and what I’d do if I ever won that elusive lottery jackpot.

And the artwork around our house is everchanging too.

This could potentially pose a problem — after all, art prints can be expensive — but I have a little trick up my sleeve.

Where Can I Buy Reasonable Price Art?

Have you ever heard of Desenio?

If you’ve not, prepare to be excited!

Desenio are a Scandinavian brand, formed in 2010. And their ethos — and the idea behind the company —  was that stylish affordable art prints should be available to everyone.

I’m a little bit obsessed, it must be said.

Not only do they make it über-easy; you can choose your art online by colour, subject, size… the list goes on. They also sell perfect frames to pop your prints in; metallic, wood or monochrome, they’ve got a great selection.

And — best of all — Desenio have pages of inspirational images of perfect picture pairings and a clever on-line tool to help you create the perfect gallery wall at home.

It’s one of the best websites I’ve come across for inexpensive artwork.

Affordable Artwork For Your Home

One of the things I like most about my Desenio art prints are that I can mix and match them to the frames.

And, as I’ve got a few in the same size, I can swap them from room to room

This is perfect, for a fickle soul like me, as it means my constant desire to mix things up and keep things looking fresh, is sated.

For example:

Kate Moss — who used to hang in our snug…

Has now swapped places with the beautiful quote on balance, that used to hang in our bedroom.

I think the balance print works so well against the dark walls.

I loved it in our bedroom too, but quite like waking up to Miss Moss every day! I’ve always loved that image — it makes me smile.

Affordable Art Prints in Lots of Different Sizes

As well as larger pictures, Desenio also do a fantastic range of super affordable art prints in smaller sizes.

These postcard sized prints are brilliant for giving old frames a new lease of life.

I love this botanical print, of a cotton plant, in my old Kiko frame.

Inexpensive Wall Art For Everchanging Walls

And did you notice that — beyond the print hanging on the wall in the landing — the prints above our bed have swapped yet again?

Instead of the blush tones of the palm trees against a pink sky I swapped them with a print that I had hanging in my dressing area.

Which means I could exchange the pink bedlinen and blush pink cushions, for white bedding and blue, chevron striped cushions.

And the restful pink collection that used to be above my bed, is now where the Five Minutes print used to hang…


It’s all change!

But perfect for a chameleon like me, who likes things to be constantly evolving.

Talking of which, I might move Kate back to the snug; she looked fab in there…

    • Thanks lovely — I have just been looking at replacing the pink ones for green! It’s so lovely to be able to mix and match so easily. I dare-say, if the Desenio prices weren’t so affordable, I wouldn’t dream of changing my artwork so frequently but it such a bargain isn’t it?! :)
