For a while I have been trying to bring more plants into the living room. We have three big sliding glass doors in the living room so you can see my lovely tropical garden from every angle. I hung a macrame hanger in front of window, and borught in more pot plants. Some of which didnt like the transfer from my garden to inside!
I mulled over it was that I wanted - actual plants? or did I want something different on the walls? Huge sunflower posters? Wallpaper? I just didnt know, all I knew was that I needed a change. We had just purchased new living room furniture. Dark grey, a safe colour with the silver grey curtains, and pale yellow walls. In the meantime, I began to wash down the walls, and curtains, and remove clutter.
It was very timely to recieve an offer from a wonderful company in Sweden called Photowall.

They offered to send me a product so that I could review it on my blog. Ohmigosh - the choices! I knew that I wanted a nature theme, but did I want wallpaper or a canvas print or a wall hanging?
There are lots of different articles and ideas - how to make little baskets for your office equipment from leftover wallpaper - or a garland of rosettes! Gosh I certainly came away with all sorts of wonderful ideas!
In the end I ordered a canvas print of a forest scene. Thinking I would put it behind the couch and it would seem like a window looking out to the forest. I ordered a long narrow print, thinking that I did not want it to be overwhelming. Considering it came all the way from Norway it arrived very quickly. Very well packaged in a long box. Immediately I could see the quality of the product.
I laid it out on the table out in the garden, and followed the instructions on how to put it together. Placing the wooden frames along each edge and then turning them inside to stretch and lock the frame in place.
