Using affordable art in your home is an amazing and cost effective way of injecting personality into a space and I love the way it can be used to completely change or update a room.
For me, I must admit I don’t know much about art art and whilst one day I hope to learn more and buy direct from the artists, until then I like to stick to interesting, quality and affordable art.
Now our building work is pretty much over and we are on to the furnishing side of renovating our home, we have a lot of bare walls that need filling. I have found it a little overwhelming and have pretty much left them bare until now.
So when Desenio got in touch to offer me a few of their prints for my home alongside a discount code for my readers I jumped at the chance.
Desenio are a Swedish company that have a huge range of affordable art posters, frames and other art related accessories. The designs are mainly Scandinavian which is perfect for my minimal luxe look and they ship for free and quickly all around the world.
But the really great thing is the affordability. You can pick up a good quality print at an amazing price – and I am talking from £2.95 – which means you can have a lot of fun creating gallery walls, filling empty spaces and you don’t need to worry too much about changing your mind.
With so much choice on offer it was hard to chose what to go for. I was very tempted by some of the more playful prints such as this cactus print and if you have read this post you’ll know I have a real thing for beach, water and sea inspired artwork.
However in the end I decided to keep things quite classic and opted for a series of black and white prints which I can move around my house when I feel like mixing things up a bit.
I was first drawn to two beautiful architectural photography prints – I love the contrast between the light and shadow and the depth they give.

Arched corridor 30×40 £11.95
Then I went for this light and shadow filled beauty aptly named Let the light in poster for my bathroom which I think almost mirrors the space.

Also for the bathroom I have had my eye on a certain picture that I have seen so many times on Pinterest. It is the Love Warriors Sky poster that kept popping up time and time again in my feed.
You know when you just can’t resist to try and live the Pinterest life IRL? That’s me! And I am absolutely DELIGHTED with how she looks in this space! The colours are just perfect.
Handpicked Love Warriors Sky poster 50×50 £59.95
Cafe Norma 21 x 30 £5.95
La Cucina poster 21×30 £6.95
Whilst much of the posters are Scandi in style, there is such a huge range of choice that I think there is something for everyone’s taste. You can very helpfully search through the website by colour, theme, style and size which helps narrow down what you are looking for.
I opted to get the prints framed myself as I really wanted to add extra interest with a floating double mount, however Desenio do offer a great selection of frames to suit your aesthetic including gold, silver, oak, and white. I absolutely love this range of frames.
I am delighted with our new prints and think they really elevate our bare walls!
If you would like to spruce your home with some Desenio prints they have offered an exclusive 25% discount for The Green Eyed Girl readers.
The code “thegreeneyedgirl” gives 25% off posters between 14 – 16 November.

So, what do you think?
Do you like my affordable art picks? I love them!
Desenio gifted me my choice of prints however I only work with brands and products that I would happily pay for myself and recommend to a friend.
