-AD: Some of the prints featured were bought with a gifted Desenio voucher-

It’s been a while since I switched up the prints on my gallery wall, so I thought it was about time I gave it a little refresh. This time I decided to go for a slightly 60/70’s inspired vibe when choosing my latest gallery wall prints and I’ve also kept a few of my favourite Desenio prints up as well but I’ve just changed them around a little. If you want to find out more about Desenio, how to get 45% off prints and 10% off frames and also which prints I chose and why I chose them then keep on reading…

I've been meaning to do an updated lifestyle and fashion favourites for a while but I've just not got around to doing it until now. I thought I might as well call it my winter lifestyle and fashion favourites as we're fairly close to the end of winter now (finally!). So here are some things which I've been loving this winter...

Last year I put a gallery wall up in my room and it honestly completely changed my room for the better and just kind of knitted everything together if that makes sense. I was kind of mad at myself for not putting anything up on the brick feature wall for a few years because I felt like I'd been missing out. I also feel like it was an easy way to add not only a pop of colour into my room but also show my personality and what I like. As much as I love my gallery wall and the prints I picked up last year, I thought it was about time to just change it up a little for the new season and give it a little refresh. Desenio kindly gifted me a voucher* to pick up some new prints, so in this post I'm going to be showing you my revamped gallery wall as well as talking about why I picked the prints.

I've kept all of the same frames from my last Desenio order because I really like them and I've had no issues with them that have made me want to change them. I also like that they are lightweight so it makes it easier to put them up. I did pick up two of the small frames (13x18) in Black and one medium frame (21x30) in Black because I'm thinking I may have switch to an all black framed gallery wall at some point in the future but I'm still happy with my copper and black frame mixture at the moment. 

So from the left to the right (going down and across) I picked up the Scrabble Love print in 13x18 which I just think is a cute little print. It's simple and sweet and I didn't want too many bold prints in the smaller frames because I know I'd already put quite a few bolder larger prints in my cart. Next is the Frida Floral print (21x30) which I absolutely love. it's bold, it's pretty and I think once I finally get around to painting my bedroom walls with a warm teal colour, it's going to blend in really well. However my mum did say she thought it was "Boy George back in the day" when she first saw it (I honestly don't know where her head is at haha!). It's definitely one of my faves that I picked up in this order. At the bottom is the & Poster (13x18) which I bought just to break up the wall a little and I think it works really well. It's simple but it still quite a statement print.

Then back up to the top I chose the Go Your Own Way (21x30) print which is obviously a nod to the Fleetwood Mac song and I was basically brought up listening to the likes of Fleetwood Mac and they were also my mum and dad's band back in the day as they were about when they first got together. I'm also a fan of Fleetwood Mac and I think the print works well with the bold coloured prints either side. I decided to keep my Girl Power (13x18) print from last year up because I just think it's a nice little motivational print and I think it looks nice in my photos when I use my gallery wall as a background for my blog and insta photos. At the bottom of is the Pink Paris Perfume (13x18) which I think just adds a girly pop of colour to the wall and I've also got another Chanel perfume bottle print in my room on my bookcase so it kind of ties them both together. 

If you read my Desenio blog post last year then you would've seen that I chose a print called "Memphis" which is kind of similar to my new 80's (30x40) poster. I just love the kind of abstract design and the bright colours. I definitely think it's the feature point of the whole gallery wall right now. Next is the La Lune (21x30) which I got because I just needed something relating to the moon on my wall basically. I love anything like that from stars, moons etc but I chose the La Lune print in particular because I like that it's in black and white and it's kind of a nice contrast against the bright colours of the other prints and it's similar to my last moon print that was up previously. The Inhale The Future (13x18) print is kind of a reminder to breathe deeply when I'm feeling anxious as I find that it helps me a lot. So I just thought it'd be a handy little reminder to have on the wall. Lastly is the Be Kind Pink (21x30) which I love. I just think it's cute and I like how the "Be Kind" fades out the further it goes down the print.

I’d been debating on putting some prints on my brick feature wall in my bedroom for a while, as I had nothing on the wall apart some fairy lights over my bed and I feel like it was just looking a little bare and well, boring. Because the ‘brick’ is obviously wallpaper, I didn’t want to potentially ruin it and then have to wallpaper it all over again - because what a hassle that would be! (and I loathe wallpapering with a passion). But I recently decided to bite the bullet and attempt trying a gallery wall to try and make more of a feature out of the wall and I’ve got to say, I actually love how it looks and I wish I’d done it sooner!
