This is certainly not the first time we have featured Desenio on a Wednesday, but we just love them.
If you want modern, on-trend and quirky prints then look no further. Their new collection features monochrome typography, digital portraits, florals, fruits, and geometric designs, all in shades of pink, green and blue ( as well as black & white ). A gorgeous collection to pick from.
The range is huge so you will be sure to find something, and with prices starting from under a fiver its not going to break the bank.
We must congratulate the folks at CheapShot for succeeding with their crowd funding to launch their creative (and wittily sarcastic) new print brand. Their prints (and cards) are on the surface a pretty mix of flora and typography with a meaningful quote but look a little closer and realise the amusing full design of the prints with their witty undertone cleverly and discreetly written behind the main quote.
It’s genius, well priced and perfect to adorn your walls.

Floral prints are always a popular choice, especially around this time of year. Spring brings flowers and colour which in turn brings joy and positivity into our lives. This is then replicated in the home with our interior choices. This year its the same, although now the prints are bolder, bigger and more colourful.
Florals have often felt quite old fashioned and it can be difficult to know how to use them in the home. A great place to start is with soft furnishings; cushions and rugs in a distictive pattern mixed with more plain colours help bring this trend in a subtle way. Mix different floral prints together for a bolder look or with other patterns like stripes and geometric [ see previous trend post floral x geo ].
Large floral images look great framed as pieces of art, and just having a few of these around the home or placed together on a wall can create a subtle nod or full on statement to this trend. Go even more bold with a mural wallpaper or an allover patterned sofa. The wall becomes a piece of art on a larger scale and can bing drama to a room and a floral sofa is fun and quirky, making all your guests smile when they enter the room. Go one step further and match your sofa with the wallpaper, for a full on statement.
However much floral you fancy investing in, remember it can be young and cool and no longer Mumsy, so enjoy it.
Last year we saw a lot of floral and tropical prints on soft furnishings and in art, as well as geometric pattern continuing to be a popular choice. This year sees the two prints combined creating a clashing mix of colour, pattern and style.
Larger more bold florals are appearing on wallpapers and bed linens. Layer this up with geometric soft furnishings and accessories.
A great place to start is with a statement wallpaper, combined with plain furniture and then accessorized with geo pattern. Fill the walls with art, either more floral or geo inspired. The more it clashes the better.
Brass and copper tones work great when considering smaller pieces of furniture. A glass or marble topped coffee table or side table will help bring this trend together. Its very over the top and works best with darker interiors.
You can go big, or small with this trend. Keep it more subtle on bedding or perhaps a couple of floral cushions on a sofa combined with a geometric rug for example.

In a world where we are surrounded by art and creativity, modern, surreal, traditional, abstract, graphic, contemporary, or which ever your art style preference, to be able to translate that into an affordable and impactful home version is definitely a winner.
To turn a piece of art into a wall sized piece of art created from wallpaper is not only a great way to appreciate art but also an incredible visual for an interior design, and an incredible backdrop for your furniture.
We’ve discovered Photowall as being a great site for not only a huge array of art and designs ready to go as wall paper (or wall murals) but they also turn your own art, designs or photographs into wallpaper too. It’s quite affordable so it’s even something you could change with a decor update, seasonally or when you just had a new image you preferred.
You could choose imagery relating to current trends or colours, creating backdrops for any room that make a statement. Style with clean lines of furniture and not too much accessorising as this could get too busy. Let the wall paper speak for itself.
It’s a fantastic way to personalise a room and would be a very special way to theme a child’s room – turn it into a jungle, under the ocean or even a set from their favourite film!
