I was recently contacted by Photowall, a Swedish company, which sells wall decorations. As a blogger I get contacted by a lot of companies that want to send me products in exchange for reviews, but I’m quite picky about it, because I don’t want to have and advertise just any junk out there and I care about the sustainability aspect as well. However, I took a look at Photowall and really liked what I saw, so I decided to accept their offer and got to choose a product for free in exchange for this review.
Photowall makes gorgeous wall art: wallpapers, murals, canvas prints and posters, all made to order and digitally printed right there in Sweden. They offer a huge selection of beautiful motives and you can even order wall art with your own image, which their team will prep for you. To be honest, I never really considered wallpaper as something for the 21st century, until I saw the photos on their website and now I’m sorely tempted to transform my bedroom into an exotic forest.
However, since I currently live in a rented flat, I chose a printed poster. As an engineer I naturally ended up with an airplane mechanical drawing and I love it! The order process was smooth and simple – you get to choose the size of your product and adjust the image to fit as you want, and with posters you can either choose to order a hanger as well or not. My package arrived within a few days and I really liked that it included everything needed to hang the poster, including a nail for the wall. It also included a clear DIY plan of assembly even for something as simple as a poster with hangers, so you should be fine even if you normally get a screw stuck up your nose when you’re assembling furniture at home. 🙂
The poster I received is printed on a thick, quality paper and all the details in the print are clear and beautiful. The wooden hangers are also quite well made according to my craftsman boyfriend, so I would say that the overall product is worth the price they’re asking as there is a definite feel of quality to the whole thing.

Here are a couple of other socially responsible details that convinced me to accept this collaboration with Photowall and write this review:
- Their extensive environmental policy: among other things, Photowall uses biodegradable printing ink and recycled material for their wrapping. My order came in a cardboard box with almost no plastic and the poster was wrapped in thick brown paper that I later reused for Christmas gifts + the ink actually had a different smell than the usual chemical freshly printed smell (yes, I sniffed at it, because I was curious if a biodegradable ink smells any different).
- Locally manufactured products in Sweden, made to order to reduce waste (they even list the company that recycles their production waste).
- Bonus points for free standard delivery everywhere.
- They also have a magazine with cool tips for interior decoration and as you might imagine, I particularly liked this article about sustainable decorating.
Now, how do you feel about wall art? Do you prefer your walls bare or barely visible?
