It’s all in the details…
Whenever I’m doing a room makeover, one thing I keep in mind is the artwork. So when we were doing our bedroom makeover, what Desenio artwork we would display in the room was one of the first things on my mind. As a renter, prints always helps to bring in my personality into the house. Artwork helps to bring a certain vibe to a room. For me, the vibe I wanted to bring to our bedroom once the makeover was completed was a calming and relaxing. I wanted to wake up feeling refreshed and go to bed feeling totally unwind.
It’s not something that can make or break a room, but it can certainly drive where the tone of the room is going. Here are some of the things that I took into consideration when I was picking our Desenio artwork for our bedroom…
Colour is key when it comes to any design of a room. When it comes to frames, I am a huge fan of the oak frames. They are such a natural tone, which helps bring in the neutral vibe to our home. We’ve been using them throughout our house, so we wanted to keep this same flow throughout the house.
When I came to choose the colours in the prints, I really wanted to bring some darker tones to our home. I went with this black and white print for the side of the bed, along with this line drawing for the other side. To cover up where the wall light use to be, I went with this large blush pink and black graphic print. Finally, to bring a touch of my personality into the room, I went with this gorgeous Paris rooftop print. All these tones help compliment the other things in my room.
POSITIONING/ PLACING THE PRINTS.
Where you place the artwork is also key for bringing and room together. I love the American trend of prints at the side of the bed, so wanted to replicate this in our own bedroom. I was worried that the prints would be too small when I chose them. But now looking at them all together, they look great. For the big one on the chimney, not only did I want to make a statement on a large blank wall, but there was also a need to cover a light fitting that we got rid of. It’s one of my top rental tips. If you need to conceal a light fixture that you’ve temporarily removed during your tenancy, get a large print to cover up the wires. That way when you come to leave, you can put it back up and no one was none the wiser!
For the Paris rooftops, I really wanted a leaning print on the chest of drawers to all something to that styling moment. I think it looks great with the rest of the bits, with the tones and vibe of the space.
Finally, when considering artwork, you have to think about how it works with the rest of your home. Most of our artwork is from Desenio, but the prints that I chose for the bedroom, though a bit different, definitely match with the rest of the prints in the house. That continuity allows for the house to feel much bigger and open, creating much-needed space that this home needs. It also helps establish that vibe you were aiming for to continue throughout your home.
