*AD WITH GIFTED ITEMS
I love scrolling through Instagram homes pictures or Pinterest boards and love watching other people’s homes and what they did to it. However, I also noticed that lately everyone is trying to replicate this perfect magazine style shoots where a picture of faux plants, geometrics or landscape are featured in the artwork. These days seriously our homes lacking personalisation. It’s very rare to find a traditional picture of a family or couple in their homes. You only seem to see that if you visit your parent, grandparents or aunties. Younger generations and millennial focus these days or aesthetics rather memories.
I think this not as much as can show lack of bonding with family it also can be quite sad! Especially when someone has family leaving away or loved ones, and with technologies these days, we keep contact via Skype or FaceTime. I personally have pictures of my dad and sister on my mirror, like every day when I do my makeup or hair, I can look at their faces and smile.
Today, I want to challenge you and show you how can you make your home looking like a great magazine photoshoot and yet enjoy that cute picture you would post on Instagram instead. I have ordered canvas, framed picture, cushion and mug from My-Picture.co.uk and honestly, when I put these up, my room has brightened straight away. I have used pictures from my Instagram as well.
My-Picture.com offers an affordable printing of canvas, framed prints, cushions mug even towels and rugs. This range is huge in sizes and many options. You can have cousin double sided or single sided, you can opt for a better quality etc. Same with Personalised Canvas Prints, you can send any picture in many sizes and shapes from rectangular to square with white edge or picture stretched over the edges. The options are never-ending. The quality of the products are also fantastic and print quality is great. I used my Instagram picture quality and came amazingly with no blur whatever, but make sure you have high resolution and use there preview to be sure. You can also email them and double check before sending.
I personally enjoy the service very much. It took literally 10min to upload all images, personalise to send an order. I waited around 5 days and courier delivered the parcel, well packed.
Let’s talk prices. These days artwork can cost a fortune and printing in your local printing shop prices can give you some serious heart attack. I tried few times printing just documents which would be expensive but personalized items are very expensive. Luckily My-Picture.co.uk offer affordable prices and most of the items are already discounted so don’t hesitate to check their prices. Use my code

For a rented space, you can use command brand products like in student room I did with using their products. Also, check this post for more inspirations. Command products offer you to hang your artwork without damaging your walls.
I love my cat cushions and mugs. I love my cats too of course, and already I am having my cat jewellery, having a cat personalised decor was a no brainer for me. Having two sweet faces of my cats with my morning coffee, or having a cushion on my chair, gives my home this sweet cosy vibes. I also chose to print canvas of me and my boyfriend in the Maldives. It was a great shot of two of us and chasing a canvas for this one was a perfect idea. It gives me the extra texture of the material but also the thickness creates a nice 3D effect on my wall. Instead of hanging it, I just placed it on my chest of drawers and I think it gives a really nice gallery effect. I also opted to print a picture of myself in Aruba with flamingos. Aruba was my dream destination and having that wish come true and seeing that picture on my wall every day, it reminds me that anything can be possible every day.
I noticed how my home became brighter and cosier and more homely with all this personalised artwork and decor around. I replaced this with previous quotes and pictures of lances and I do have to admit how it change the appears of the room. I absolutely love it.
