Around our Home: Choosing our prints & frames

I haven't done a home decor update in a while and I know that a few people have asked me recently for an update on our loft conversion and redecoration of our bedrooms. The truth is - now that it's down to us to put the final touches to all of our rooms, getting finished has taken a bit longer. Mostly because balancing finishing off our rooms with looking after our boys, working and having time for ourselves is like trying to squeeze blood from a stone at times! BUT we are getting there, we're working hard and I am excited to see the rooms totally finished this month. I will, of course, share room tour posts/videos as soon they're done. I just sort of wanted to share them finished rather than half done.

Something that we have managed to successfully get pretty much finished are the prints and frames for our house. We recently discovered an online store called desenio.co.uk, which turned out be exactly what we had hoped to find when it came to getting frames for our rooms. 

I've often had similar Scandinavian-style prints and frames catch my eye on other websites, but often I've felt they were a little overpriced. The prints and frames we have from Desenio are fairly priced but without compromising at all on quality. 

Adam and I were looking for the exact sort of frames that they were selling, with the exact same style of art prints. We both spent ages excitedly going through the entire website together picking out our favourites, before coming together and making a final decision. 

Both the frames and prints were packaged with great care when they arrived and I was so excited that I opened them up straight away and then text Adam at work to tell him how much I loved them. 

We've put most of them up now, with a few left to go on the walls and we'll be replacing some of our existing frames in the house with these for unity, so we'll be ordering some more. 

Here's a look at some of our frames and prints so far..

(Hi lazy Sammy!) Our new bedroom is not yet finished, but here's a sneak-peak and a look at how we've used the frames in our bedroom. The wedding photograph is a 7x5 we had already, so we just got  a new frame and insert for it.

Being parents, we thought this was a perfect quote for just above our bed to remind us that's it's OK to have days when you feel all you did was breathe that day.

 This poster print is one of our favourites. We've hung it downstairs as we feel it represents our way of looking at life as a family perfectly.

They have a fantastic selection of prints for children available, including lots of colourful ones too and some really pretty ones that would look beautiful in a little girls room. We're going with a star theme for Logan's new bedroom, so this one was perfect for him.

For our new office we wanted something motivational and this was perfect. It again sums up something we both feel quite strongly about.

All of our prints and frames are from Desenio - if you are looking for something similar, you can find all of their posters online.

  7. I love these prints and I have just got a picture shelf for our dining room and needed some inspiration as to what I should I put on it. How true is the one about breathing, such a gentle reminder that sometimes we can't be super parents every single day x
