Nothing in my life has made me feel more of a grown up than when we had a new kitchen fitted. The process itself was painful. There was a lot of dust. A broken boiler (in the middle of winter). Oh, and a severe case of D&V at the exact time when we had no running water or flushing toilets.
But! I can look back on it all and laugh now, mainly because I am head over heels in love with my new kitchen.
My favourite part of any decorating project is always the finishing touches.
We had a fairly large wall space in the kitchen where we had notice boards which contain my life. I would be lost without my planners! I also had a hanging rail for some plants and some canvas pictures. But it left an odd space that I have been trying to find something to fill.
That’s where Desenio came in. I decided to go with a picture rail in the view that I get bored quickly and like to change the look of things. This way I can change the kitchen prints or the frames without the husband needing to get his toolkit out, or putting lots of holes in our freshly plastered walls.
I loved these fun summery prints. Especially as in the summer months my kids primary source of food is ice cream!
Exploring the Desenio site is a bit like disappearing down a rabbit hole.
There are so many amazing prints available in lots of sizes. With categories ranging from animals to vintage and all sorts in between. I searched kitchen prints for this selection and was spoilt for choice.
What I like best is that they are great value. You know me, I love a bargain. These frames and prints combined cost under £25. And now I have the frames, I can change the look by ordering new prints for less than £12
- Watermelon Ice Cream poster (5×7) £3.95
- Ice Cream Pattern Poster (5×7) £3.95
- Sprinkle Ice Cream Poster (5×7) £3.95
- White Frames (5×7) £3.95 each
When Summer disappears and ice cream is no longer on the menu, I wanted to create a different look so chose these black and white kitchen prints.
The frames from Desenio are great value too. I’ve often been caught out by finding a print I like then finding the frame to go with it is ridiculously expensive. So I don’t get the frame, then realise the print is an odd size and I can’t find an alternative frame to fit. You don’t have to worry about that with Desenio. The frames are great quality and affordable. My only criticism is there isn’t a huge choice of colours.
- Bon Appetit Text (5×7) £3.95
- Pineapple B&W Poster (5×7) £3.95
- Dancing Poster (5×7) £3.95
We are decorating our lounge next year and I will definitely be opting for picture rails and going to Desenio for my prints and frames.
No longer do I need to worry about running out of walls in my house!
I can change things up regularly and create different looks without spending a fortune, or getting the hammer out.
It’s easy to store all the extra prints inside the frames so they don’t get damaged or lost in that ‘safe place’. And I can start a new game of how many days before the Husband notices I have changed the pictures!
Basically Desenio is my new favourite place to shop.
