We've been in this house nearly a whole year now and when we moved in, I was excited that the walls were newly painted bright white instead of the horrible magnolia in our last house. I wanted a fresh, clean looking home and don't get me wrong, I still do want it to look clean and fresh but I am craving some colour as well.. maybe it is the Summer sunshine?!
I ordered these 4 prints and frames from Desenio which is one of my go-to places for prints. They have such a good range of prints from quotes, to colourful art prints to the monochrome trend and most of the prints I have up everywhere else in the house are from Desenio too!
As I am new to introducing colour, I went with prints that adding a little bit of colour but weren't too much. For above the sofa area, I got the 'A thousand birds' and 'Live more' quote. My favourite colour is yellow yet believe it or not I have nothing yellow in the house so this was my inspiration for the birds prints. I also just love the quote, I'm quite the worrier so to have this somewhere I can see it all the time helps remind me to live a bit more!
For the other end of the room, I wanted something more colourful and fun as that's where most of the girls toys are. I chose the 'Pineapple green' and 'Flamingo' print as I thought they were fun and add the bit of colour but still aren't too much. Who doesn't love flamingos and pineapples?!
I'm really happy with my prints and think they do the job of adding a bit of colour perfectly! We have also ordered new sofas and colourful cushion too so I can't wait for those to arrive and the living room be nearly finished!
