Decorating my room with Photowall— The Review







In Collaboration with PHOTOWALL
Disclaimer: I was given a free product
in exchange of a review, but a
ll opinions
and views on 
this post are honest and 
unbiased.
Let me introduce you first to photowall, they’re a Swedish company 
with a passion for design and quality. Their wall murals and canvas 
prints are environmentally friendly, fire-retardant in accordance with 
Swedish standards and do not fade in sunlight. 

All their motifs are selected
with care and printed on demand. 
Among their products, they have wall murals, wallpapers,
canvas prints & posters

They were kind enough to approach me and give me the amazing 
opportunity to work with them, and that couldn’t came at a more 
perfect timing, so didn’t have to think twice and I said yes. 





Ever since we moved to this new place – and that was like around October in 2016, if I’m not wrong – I would finally have my own bedroom and wouldn’t have to share it with somebody else, because of that I was really excited to decorate it, at the time I was still in University and every semester that went by got me busier and busier, then I graduated and completely forgot about this but only somehow I still had this longing in my heart that I wanted to re-do my bedroom at some point. 

It wasn’t until last year around end of November that I got this creativity bug back again and I told my parents: "you know what I’m re-doing my bedroom, this time for real"- that’s how I’ve gotten so far, a lamp and a brand new bed base, gave away my old bed and dresser to my grandma and then December came and ended, a new year started and once again, I was on a some sort of creative rut, and I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do with it.

As I started looking for some inspiration online I slowly started to develop some sort of style and I finally knew exactly what I wanted to do. I primarily had the idea to do an accent wall by adding a wallpaper, the thing is most of them have to be glued and we live in a rented apartment, so not something we are allowed to do and so many other factors that for me that was not a good idea, plus there were these two outlets on the wall that I found very annoying. So then, I was like okay and what about doing an art gallery wall or better yet adding a huge canvas print just above the bed? To be honest, finding art prints here in my hometown has been really hard, since I started this project back in November, I’ve been looking for that everywhere, and most of the designs I didn’t like nor didn’t fit my aesthetics / style that I was going for, this is why this opportunity came at a perfect timing.

So, when photowall approached me, I jumped off excitement and I was eager to collaborate with them, so I said yes! They would gift me with one product, it could be either wall mural, canvas prints, poster, anything that I wanted. I spent hours, but HOURS looking at every single one of their products and found there were some that could match my style. 

When it comes to art, I’m more like an abstract type of person, I don’t know there’s something about it that I have always loved so much, so once I was on the website, which by the way, it’s very easy to access and scroll, I went to check their canvas prints, and chose the category of art & design and then chose another (sub)category of abstract and that’s where I spent the most hours looking and saving my favorite ones and putting it all together in a power point presentation I have made on how I want my room to look like, I had lots of favorites, and decided to go for a canvas print (size 110cm x 70cm) with motif on the edge as well. 

I really wanted something bold but at the same time neutral but still with a pop of color to enhance the wall where I was going to hang it, as I browsed and looked art by art I noticed the “mid-century” designs from Ana Rut Bre, and that’s how I completely felt in love with the Circles Mid Century VII one. It was just perfect and meant to be. It has more of a pastel hue colors but also neutrals, so double-win and that’s the one I chose.


About the product, you may think it comes ready to put on the wall but no, it actually comes unassembled but it does include everything you need to put it all together and have yourself a easy-peasy DIY moment, it’s easy to install and they provide even a video on their website on how to do it in case the instruction paper doesn’t work for you. I loved that it came this way (unassembled) because if it came ready there may be possibilities of getting broken or something, so who knows. 

My brother did help me assembly it and also hung it up on the wall for me the next day it arrived (Sat). although it seems it went up a little higher than expected. Either way, I'm still in the progress of renovating my room, and moving furniture here and there and eventually I may be putting this on the other wall front facing this one, but once it's all done, I'll share the very final result on another post. 

The overall experience is that I was happy to find out their products ship EVERYWHERE, including Colombia– where I’m from, silly me thought it was only for US and/or Europe, but with the girl I talked to via email, she was so kind and helped me out and answered the questions I had at the moment, once I had the product on my cart and checked out, I then received an email where they told me my order would take up to 4-5 business days to arrive and included a PDF of my receipt and none of that took more than 5 minutes. The whole experience from via email to the process of ordering, the easy to access website, I just have one word for it and is AMAZING, and YES, it only took 5 days for it to get to the other side of the world and arrive to my humble abode just like how they previously mentioned it, and that's what I call a good service. 

I really love it, and highly recommend you to try their products, you’ll love it and you’ll feel inspired to add a new art piece onto your wall, or re-do a room in your place because that’s how exactly I felt when they emailed me and immediately got lost in their website, as I have been on this creative rut for a while, I got inspired again to continue this bedroom makeover project that I was putting off and off, not only I knew I would love the product for myself but that you guys would love it as well, again, the quality of it is amazing and it's easy to assembly as well. Also, I have a little surprise for you and is that they kindly provided me with a code for you all where you get 25% off on any product in their website.

For 25% off use code: melissablog2020 (Valid until end of April 2020) 

Oh, and if you want something more unique, like for example having your photo turned into a wall mural, or canvas print, etc. They DO offer that option as well. You'll be amazed at the quality of their product. This art canvas print I chose is actually printed and when my mom saw it the moment I opened the box, she thought it was hand-painted and for a split-second I thought- is it? it really looks like it, but no, it's actually printed. 



Hope you guys loved this post as much as I loved it. Sending you all good vibes and lots of love wherever you're all from and stay safe and take care of yourselves. Until next time! xo
