Creating A Gallery Wall With Desenio

One of the first things that people notice when they come into our kitchen is our Desenio prints above our dining table, and they always draw compliments. It’s safe to say we are big fans of Desenio and their collection of prints and frames, and for that reason they were our first port of call when it came to creating a gallery wall in our hall way.

For those who haven’t heard of Desenio, they are passionate about interiors and specifically Scandinavian design. Their business idea is simple, that stylish wall art should be affordable to everyone, and they make sure that it is. With an online presence in 33 countries you can find Scandinavia’s widest range of posters along with frames, hangers, picture ledges and clips.

Central to our house, our hall way connects our downstairs living areas, kitchen, bathroom and stairs, and is quite a dark area with no windows. Although it’s a lovely space, when it’s not home to the children’s school bags and coats they’ve flung off, the plain walls are a little dull and I really wanted to create something which was fun and colourful whilst still keeping in theme with our home.

I am a big fan of a gallery wall and yet always struggle to work out the sizes needed and how the pictures will look together, and yet using the Desenio Gallery Wall Creator made it so easy!

Basically you choose the main colour of your background from grey, white, blue or pink, and then a rough idea of the look of your room from a selection of pre-designed images. You can then choose the number of prints and sizes you’d like to include in your gallery and then simply start adding prints to your frames to build the perfect gallery! You can also see exactly how much you are spending as you go along which is perfect for those keeping to a strict budget.

We decided to go for a botanical theme with a few quirky prints thrown in and, with delivery in 3-7 working days, I was so excited when they arrived before the end of the week!

The hard part is always going to be hanging your frames and getting them perfectly spaced but thankfully, having done this before in the kitchen, my Dad and I managed to get all of the prints perfectly hung in record timing!

Our first choice was the Monstera Three poster, sized 100cm x 70cm and a stylish photo of three green cheese plant leaves against a white background. We chose wooden frames to match our hall way doors and staircase.

Our next choice was the Live More Worry Less poster, sized 70cm x 50cm which is a motto I think we could all take on board in our house and a message I want my children to see every single morning when they come down the stairs.

Next we went for two fun prints – the Giraffe print and the Pineapple in black and white, both sized 40cm by 30cm. These aren’t necessarily prints I would ever have chosen ordinarily and yet when I was designing the gallery wall I thought they really fitted in with the botanical colours and of course, the children love them!

To finish our gallery wall we chose the Banana Palm Leaves print in size 30cm x 21cm and I just love the look for the green against the black and white with the wood surround.

As always I am so impressed with Desenio and just how easy it was to design, order, and hang our prints and frames. Now our hallway feels much brighter and more cheerful and I am already making plans for our next gallery wall in our new lounge!

    If never heard of them before but I think the style is quite cool. It might be something I look into when I eventually get my own house

    What a cool idea. My sister could have used this when she was trying to figure out what are to put up in her new house. It can be challenging to find the right pieces that are also the right size.

    That is such a great idea……I am so unimaginative when it comes to how to hang pictures

    These are the kind of compositions I would like to furnish my home. Fresh. Contemporary. Moderne. Good idea!

    I’m looking for a new flat right now and I’d definitely like to have something on my walls. Gallery wall display makes every interrior much more special and unique. 🙂

    What an amazing style. I don’t think they ship internationally, do they?

    Desenio sounds like a great company for getting prints. Your choices are so beautiful and perfect.

    I love this idea, the pictures all go so well together. It’s given me some ideas for my own home.

    Live more worry yes, I say a big yes to that. I love the look of this wall art and think that this is a fab idea xx

    Hey, that’s something I have been looking for! How great it is we can mix and match and see how everything will turn out before we print it out. Sometimes it is hard to imagine. I have tried to arrange manually but gosh, it is not easy. Happy to know there is such a service now. 🙂

    What a great idea to be able to help you arrange the frames, I know that is something people struggle with. I LOVE your prints, I love how the all work together in their colours and the layout is brilliant.
