Between the 4th and 6th July by using the code “ROCKMYSTYLE” you will be entitled to 25% posters (not including the handpicked category) and as Desenio products are so reasonably priced to start with, means you can really go to town on accessorising your space with illustration, typography or photographic based prints.
The redecoration of our country cottage was never going to be a quick process, we don’t have an unlimited budget or specific allocated time, it’s a case of doing as much as we can when and if we can.
After the “big” jobs were completed (new carpets, re-plumbing, painting throughout) we hit a bit of a lull, with no rooms actually “finished” and a distinct lack of inspiration. Mabel’s playroom has always been my biggest bugbear in that it has zero storage (apart from a small cupboard) and is essentially just a room that is constantly a complete tip. Now I know the point of a playroom is that you can just “close the door” but I would just like at least a little area of calm and tranquility where you can sit and admire the views of…..piles of multi-coloured plastic.
I’ve used a sofa from our old house and introduced some pink and minty shades, the children’s illustrated map and animal prints from Desenio have finished off the cosy corner perfectly and hopefully Mabel’s geography will be considerably better than mine in the not too distant future (I also tend to do pilates by said sofa and endeavour to look at this wall rather than the sea of duplo related debris on the opposite side).
The kitchen is almost finished, I just need to sort out the lighting situation and replace the plastic plug sockets. We were limited colour scheme wise due to black worktops and a kind of ivory/grey tiled floor but I’m really pleased with the combination of Downpipe and Manor House grey cupboards and how the open shelving has added some much needed light and sense of space. I’ve opted for some monochrome typography with black picture frames and I definitely think the room has a more personal feel to it. My husband is the last person to dance anywhere, and certainly not whilst whipping up a fajita storm – we are both somewhat amused by my choice of quote.
Do let me know what Desenio pieces you might already own and what you have your eye on in the comments box below. With constant new arrivals I’m going to be using the discount code myself, happy shopping folks!
