Affordable art: Desenio

*** There is a fantastic discount for you at the end of this post! ***

In my previous posts about Affordable Art, I have written about thinking creatively to fill your walls rather than buying actual art. But what if you prefer to hang up art prints, rather than textiles or wrapping papers? That’s what I wanted when I was planning my living room revamp, so I turned to one of my favourite online art stores – Desenio. Having purchased from them before, I know that the quality of their prints is fantastic and I also love their contemporary slim frames. Desenio have a vast range of beautiful art styles at amazing prices: from landscapes, fashion, typography, abstracts, geographical, animals, botanicals, vintage-inspired and even kids’ art… the categories go on!

Hello and welcome to my project in the very exciting Revamp Restyle Reveal blog hop! Thanks to Kate Young for sending everyone my way following her bedroom reveal!

The products that I used from the sponsors have all been highlighted below. I have absolutely loved following all the revamps over the past month whilst doing my own. After a very busy September, I’m delighted to show you my transformed living room. Read More »

My favourite 3 DIY headboards

This is the second post in My Favourite 3 blog series (if you missed the first one, you can check it out here: My favourite 3 IKEA BILLY hacks) and this one is about DIY headboards… not the usual sort of furniture many people would think of making themselves (unless they are naturally very creative), but my favourite 3 DIY headboards below are all really do-able yet look amazingly gorgeous and worth a lot more than they cost to make. Read More »

IKEA gold

I don’t go to IKEA as often as I’d like, mainly because it’s a half hour drive away and going with little kids means we have to pack all manner of kid-clobber to be prepared for various scenarios and the trip ends up taking up a good part of the day. And I’m not even going to mention the grumbling husband as we go around the store 😂. But lately I’ve been hearing a lot of amazing things about IKEA’s new ranges so I took advantage of one of my husband’s days off and went there by myself. And wow, I was not disappointed!

Long gone are the days of IKEA products looking cheap, they are now looking rather glam! One thing that struck me immediately was how much gold/brass they’ve added to their ranges. Read More »
