Spring time with Gallerix wall art.

in collaboration with Gallerix 

You know that spring is slowly making its way back into the horizon, when you hear the sound of screeching seagulls. It is one of my favourite sounds in the entire world as it reminds me of the sea, summer, seaside and it symbolises the end of winter. Ever spring, I get an urge to spruce things up in the interior front and this time, I ordered a new linen sofa in front of the kitchen to create a new coffee spot. I sold my old computer table as I do not need a specific workspace and created this soft ambiance area instead. I love the way it adds another space to the house and visually looks more appealing this way.

I also got the chance to have a new collaboration with the poster brand gallerix which came during the right time with my spring clear-out.  I thought it was quite special to order a poster of a map with the coordinates for our future house. I thought it would be unique and meaningful and was thinking of giving it my husband as an anniversary gift. I love the idea of a coordinated map, as we all have places that are important to us. At first, I was thinking of placing the coordinates for the place in Italy, where we got engaged as this also holds a special place in our hearts. However, I think our house coordinates can look great in our new home, so I went with that instead. If you are thinking of ordering some prints yourself, find inspiration from this collage of prints on the wall that have been made by interior specialists to see what prints suit each other. For the next twenty one days, I will be sharing a discount code xoamys30, where you can get 30 % of your discount.

Maybe it was the sound of the seagulls this morning or that we are heading towards spring, I wanted to also order these cute little sailboats in size 50 x 70 cm in a white wooden frame, to place into Lucas’ room. Since Suvisaaristo is very much a seaside area to live, I thought the sailboats would be a cute addition to his future room. I also love the muted colour palette it has, very elegant and pleasant to my eye. Maybe my son will take up sailing as a hobby when he grows a bit older.

This Sans Couture print is lovely with a neutral colour palate, that works well with the prints I ordered last time, such as the Matisse print. I love the petals as it feels timeless, spring-like and visually it is something I will not get bored of easily. Moreover, the coordinate map in size 50 x 70cm in a white wooden frame is also visually appealing as you can change the colour of the landscape and roads from black and white to a neutral light sand colour with white roads. Many may think that this does not show the details clear enough, but I personally love that the contrast is left to a minimal and does not bounce out too much from the wall. This will eventually look great in our house. It even shows the little sauna on our plot at the moment and our neighbouring houses which is a great little detail. I love the little spruce up or house got this spring, now I am only waiting for the weather to get warm enough so I can begin planting flowers on our balcony.

New collaboration with the poster brand Gallerix

Today I received some beautiful posters from Gallerix, where I was allowed to choose some prints for our home. I wanted something simple and timeless, where the colours would be neutral and blend into the surroundings, so this way they will also suit our future house that we are going to build. I wanted something artisty and somewhat abstract so I chose posters representing Matisse Papiers Decoupes No1 and a sketch-like figurine called Picasso From Femme.

This morning I began my day with a decaf espresso and placing the posters in the frames ( I chose white wooden frames to optimise the least amount of contrast), but there are also wooden and black frames available. I also chose a few posters for our future sons room, a cute hot air balloon print ( called watercolour Hot Air Balloonand also an airplane (called Watercolour Airplane) to create a somewhat aerial feel. I love that these two prints are fairly  doey and soft from the watercolour affect and can suit both a girls and a boys room, incase we have more children in the future. Galleix also had sweet animal prints that were totally darling, that I was really contemplating as well.

I specifically wanted posters and frames in the size 30 x 40 (could get bigger or smaller), so this way they also fit inside a cabinet, as I prefer to have them leaning against something, rather than hanging on the wall. I think it looks quite nice to have these prints as a backdrop in a glass cabinet mixed with old antiques, nice plates, a few statues, on a shelf as they make nice space fillers (not that I ever have free space in my shelves :)). 

You can see my favourite poster list from here, in case you wish to order some for yourself. I will be sharing a 30% discount code on my instagram if you wish to order some for yourself that will last for twenty days. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
