Hello my lovely readers! Christmas is just around the corner. If you haven’t seen my first post of this Christmas Gift Idea Guide series, you can check it out here. Since most of us will be spending Christmas at home (not by choice), I think homeware and home decor are great gift ideas!
Last time, I suggested flowers and vases and this week I am suggesting canvas prints and framed prints.
I don’t know if it’s just a thing in Sydney or the fact I’m at this awkward stage of adulthood where people are starting to move out, but so many people I know have moved out during the pandemic.
Photowall kindly reached out to me to try their products and I was elated. I’ve been meaning to add a little bit of spice to my bedroom. Photowall are a Swedish company that inspire others to decorate their living spaces. They specialise in wall decor and have a range of products including wallpaper, canvas prints, framed prints and posters. I also really liked how you could upload your own image as well. Photowall even have in-house photo editors that will edit your own image to your liking including removing or adding objects and changing colours.

I knew straight away that I wanted something a bit abstract. I thought I would show you a few of my favourites that were in contention.
This is absolutely gorgeous and I was so close to opting for this print and then I thought it was a little bit basic.
However, you can never go wrong with a simple abstract and minimalist design and if that’s something you’re going for, look no further than this.
I love this colour scheme of pink and blue and it’s just an effortlessly chic design.
You can tell I really like simple and abstract prints. Although I was a bit worried that my parents would think I’m really weird if I ended up getting a print of two arms haha.
If you have the option, consider decorating your wall with wallpaper. I think this would look amazing if you had a a newborn or wanted to decorate a child’s room.
You can’t go wrong with a nature, jungle themed wallpaper. This looks amazing with minimalist furniture and design.
I ended up going for:
I really enjoyed how you could customise your print and see how it would differ by changing the dimensions. I only had the means for a small print. A huge landscape canvas print would look sooooo amazing behind a living room sofa. I realised if I got the 40 x 50 cm, it would actually cut off some of the design and I didn’t want that.
Shipping was ridiculously fast and shipped from Sweden. I placed an order on 25 November and it was shipped on 27 November and arrived on 2 December via DHL. The process only took 1 week which is amazing for international shipping.
Pictures do not do it any justice but I’m in awe of how beautiful it looks. It matches with my walls really well and it’s a really simple, clean and minimalist abstract design. The print looks really lovely and fits my aesthetic really well.
This was also so easy to build. Photowall provide really simple instructions making it the perfect gift for anyone. It probably took no longer than 15 minutes to put it all together. The canvas print was also really sturdy and super high quality.
Something I find with prints is that if it’s really large, the picture will essentially blow up and be of really low quality. However, the printing on this was so well done and very detailed.
Photowall are also environmentally conscious. They work on a production by order system meaning there is no excess wastage of materials. The printing ink they use is biodegradable and does not contain any hazardous chemicals. I think it’s really important to support businesses that are morally ethical and sustainable.
If you are looking to spruce up your empty walls, look no further than Photowall. This has made me really want to move out and decorate a house. I’m excited for the day when I’m no longer excited to shop online for makeup and clothes but for furniture. It has also made me really nostalgic for Sweden. I visited Stockholm about 2 years ago and I really did fall in love with Scandinavian minimalist culture and innovation. If you ever visit Stockholm, please visit the subways haha.
Photowall have kindly given me a discount code that you can use to save on all your wall decor needs.
Thank you so much to Photowall and thank you all for reading! I can’t believe Christmas is so near!
