When it comes to adding those personal touches to a home, there are an endless amount of ways this can be achieved, whether it be by painting rooms a certain colour, adding wallpaper, accessorising with cushions and other home furnishings, or by prints and wall hangings. For me, I seem to be on an endless quest to find that balance with having objects (i.e. books) to add interest and talking points to a space, while looking organised and somewhat minimalist. To be honest, this quest is still proving a struggle, ha!
I do however love prints –photos, art and the like on the walls of my home, so when Photowall –a Swedish company with a passion for design and quality- contacted me and asked if I would like to create my own canvas, I jumped at the opportunity.
Photowall: Packaging & Delivery
It took a while for me to select the right photo from my collection that I thought would look nice blown up onto a canvas, but eventually, I went for this photo that I took at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show back in July.
Before placing my order, I needed some help from the customer service team at Photowall and I have to be honest, the person that I dealt with (online) was super helpful. Eventually, I was able to place an order for a 60x50cm canvas* with a DIY frame.
When the canvas turned up before I opened the box I was a little worried I had ordered something ginormous by accident, but as you can see from the photo, everything arrived tightly compacted with no damage. The canvas itself arrived rolled up ready to attach to the frame once assembled.
Photowall: Assembly of the DIY Frame
As instructions go, assembling the canvas could not have been simpler. It was a case of un-rolling the canvas onto a clean, flat surface; positioning each of the four wooden frame sections on top; removing the protective paper to reveal the tape, and folding the canvas upwards onto each edge to firmly attach. You then fold the frame sections in towards one another, attach the corner brackets, and then screw into place. Simples.
As I assembled the frame by myself (which is/was totally doable), I had a small amount of difficulty that resulted in the frame not screwing together quite as succinct as desired. However, I do acknowledge this as my error and not that of the product or instructions. Looking at the completed canvas all set up, you would not notice the errors I made.
Photowall: Quality and Appearance
Photowall’s wall murals and canvas prints are environmentally friendly, fire-retardant in accordance with Swedish standards and do not fade in sunlight.
Overall, I am very impressed with the quality of the Photowall canvas and the level of service I have received from their team. I could have ordered one of their prints available online, but I saw the opportunity to make a print of one of my own photos, which I do not always think to do but so glad I did.
The canvas is very large and makes a real statement in my home, which I love; I would definitely look for further opportunity to create more (canvas) prints using my own photography going forward, particularly also as gifts for friends and family.
