Finally I Have The Gallery Wall Of My Dreams

Finally I Have The Gallery Wall Of My Dreams

For a very long time now I’ve had an image in my head of having a grand ‘tumblr’ picture wall, I’m not the only one right? After lusting over Gabbi’s (Velvet Ghost – YouTuber) beautiful picture wall in her vlogs, it made me really want one of my own. In today’s blog post I am going to share mine with you all and advise you on how you can create one!

I have recently been working with Desenio; a company who supply the most amazing Scandinavian prints at very reasonable prices. Without them I simply would not have been able to create the picture wall of my dreams. Scandinavian design posters and photo style prints seem to be the rage at the moment, and I can see why because they are so stylish and cool! Desenio have tonnes of prints to choose from, including typography/quote posters, floral prints, even Bansky Art. Their extensive range has just got everything covered!

My Prints:

So as some of you may know, I LOVE interior design and making my room look as good as possible (read my Room Tour blog post to get an idea of what it looks like). I was honestly spoilt for choice when it came to choosing my posters from Desenio, but was particularly drawn to the pinks and floral/plant style ones.  This probably explains my reasons for choosing my two favourites; a pink tulip and a close up cactus shot. I just knew they’d go really well with the colour scheme in my room.

I also chose this quote print which reads: “Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf.” I paired this with the black and white image of a wave as I thought they complemented each other well. I love having prints like this on my wall to remind me to look after myself and my emotions.

To the far right I have a cute little piece of art work done by artist Annabel Dover, shop for her work HERE. It is a beautiful floral milk jug (I believe) with gold foil detailing, I love it!


The frames are also from Desenio and are such great quality! I wanted to go for a variety of different frames to liven up my bland wall. My favourite are the gold frames also from Desenio as I think they look so good against my white wall! Once you’ve added a print to your basket it pops up with a notice of the right size frame to buy, in four different colours, making the whole experience super easy!

How To Make Your Own Picture Wall:

  1. Choose prints of a similar style – Desenio have a Gallery Wall Inspiration page making it very easy to find prints with the same style and colour scheme. I would suggest choosing 2-3 colours maximum to avoid a busy look. Another tip to see if your prints are of a similar style is to look at your ‘recently viewed items’ section at the bottom of the page.
  2. Already have several pictures that don’t match stylistically? – Try using the same frame to coordinate them in colour and style.
  3. Mix up the sizing – In order to give that ‘picture wall’ effect you want to choose prints of different sizes. I would suggest getting one large one and then a few more of smaller sizes.
  4. Plan before you hammer! – Lay the pictures out on the floor and combine them until you find a pattern that you like, or use washi tape to temporarily mount your pictures on the wall. This way no/less mistakes can be made! Also I would suggest doing this part with someone who can stand further back to see if the position is okay.

Desenio has kindly given me a 25% off code: ‘TILLY25‘, this excludes the ‘handpicked’ category and frames, but it still offers a vast amount of posters for you to kick start your gallery wall! I hope you enjoyed today’s post, I think I am going to be doing more interior posts as I really love creating them and I think you guys love reading them – am I right?

    It sucks because living in a rented apartment means nothing on the walls! And I’m too lazy for blutack so my walls are completely blank 🙁 I am moving in September so hopefully picking some cool prints up 😀

      Ahh that must be so annoying! There is a product which is sticky and uses velcro to hold pictures up on the wall, it supposedly doesn’t leave marks 😬 you could try that?x

    I am obsesseddddd with Scandi style interiors especially after going there recently and staying in some really cool Airbnb apartments which were decorated in such a cool way! Love the ones you chose, especially that cactus close up. I live in a rented apartment so cant put anything on the walls for now but that should change in the next year or so, so I’m trying to save up all my inspo for then! Sophie xxx
