I've had the below Caroline Rose print for a few years now...
But I changed up the off-white frame I had, to this black frame (both Ikea)...
I think the black frame really pops against the creamy/ivory walls, and also brings out the colourful print. Just a small change but it makes a difference.
You may remember my hall, stairs and landing redecoration from last year. It left a blank canvas that I wanted to brighten up. The hall received a grandmother clock and some console table styling but upstairs was still rather plain.
The best way to rectify that was with a Cozamia print! Nancy's work is absolutely beautiful. I first saw her prints on Swoonworthy, but it took me ages to decide which to get, as they are all so tempting!
I eventually decided on Sweet Chinoiserie which I truly love. Here is a close up shot I took on my phone for Instagram, but it actually shows the detail quite well (and looks better than my camera photos if I'm honest!)...
Isn't it stunning?! Even just looking at it here is making me smile!
Here it is in place over the stairs (and none of the walls are straight, so if things look like they're hung wonky, it's the walls to blame - we did what we could!)...
I've gone with dark frames for the print and the mirror, to bring some contrast to the lightness of the hall.
It's very difficult to photograph, as I had to try to combat the glare from the window on the picture.
These photos don't really do it justice, but you get the idea. The colours and vibrancy of the print are shown much better in the Instagram close-up.
It honestly makes me happy every day. At first I thought it might be wasted in that spot, but I end up seeing and enjoying it all the time.
It's difficult to get Cozamia prints in the UK, but Joss & Main sell them, which is where I bought mine from. It's a member only website and has lots of different promotions for a few days at a time. Cozamia prints often feature, so it's well worth a look. (I'm not being sponsored by Cozamia or Joss & Main - I'm just letting you know in case you love the prints as much as I do and want to get your hands on one! I haven't found them anywhere else in the UK.)

I bought another Cozamia print at the same time (picking just one was too difficult!) but I'll show you another time when I've found the perfect spot for it. To be honest, looking at the Cozamia Gallery now, makes me want to buy more - aarrghhh!
