Desenio is a Poster & Art Prints company located in Stockholm, Sweden (although they do ship internationally). I for one was really impressed with the shipping - I was about 5 days all in from ordering to receiving the prints, which were packaged securely - no issues there.
On first look at the website, I was extremely excited. The aesthetic on the website alone matched up completely to what I had in mind for our bedroom - minimal, black and white with tiny accents of colour, and really laid back. The prices were amazing as well - I had made the mistake of comparing full canvases/already framed images to the prints on Desenio. They were a fraction of the price, buttons, pennies evens. This was my issue though - I'd never bought prints. If I'm honest, immediately upon opening my package I was indifferent. Prints are prints I suppose: this was the first lot of prints I'd ordered from anywhere, and anyone who has seen them in person before will know that when not in frames, or placed appropriately, they can look underwhelming. Once in the frames though, they changed completely in my eyes.
I had ordered a Black Plexi-Glass frames for pretty much every print I received - and these simply made the images look so finished and classic, it was amazing the difference that a simple plain frame could make to these. I also ordered various White Plexi-Glass frames for Baby J's nursery, but will wait to show those with the Nursery Tour when I finally get round to that.
The first lot of prints were used to fill up a pretty big blank space - and I really just wanted something plain, simple, but that could tie in a little bit of colour that it's safe to say I was otherwise missing.
Finally, this print has been 'hidden' far from the eyes of anyone that could judge him, according to Jordan - sometimes it's easy to forget I share this room with a boy who doesn't have the same opinion on motivational quotes as I do. For now - it's set up shop in the wardrobe, but I think it fits in quite nicely there.

I don't think I've quite made it to Pinterest level yet, but at least I'm closer than I was before...
