Adding a Personal Touch to Your Home and Office

Customising your walls and using décor to create an enjoyable working space

Custom Wall Decals

Recently Vinyl Design were engaged to create custom wall decals for three businesses – Dialog in Melbourne and Steric and Xinja in Sydney.

Steric has been around since 1964 and are sure to have processed and packaged lots of foods that we’re all familiar with. Dialog has grown since their inception in 1979 to provide innovative IT solutions across Australia to all industry sectors. Two different office décor looks for very different industries … IT and food!

It’s important for our workspaces to be harmonious, unfussy, and uncluttered to allow for creativity and industriousness to flow. But at the very same time it’s important to avoid a sterile and stark environment … it can be a tricky design game! Neutral walls are a very good place to start because that gives you a base to decorate with wall art as well as important company information.

We worked with Steric to create teamwork and meeting spaces that will ensure that the company’s vision and purpose are forefront in planning and development. A constant reminder of what Steric is all about. We used both images and text to ensure that the large wall piece was a focal point of the meeting room, is visually appealing, and it’s message is clear … but also leads to creativity in thinking and discussion. This large custom wall décor for Steric sure is a winner!

Dialog are innovators in the IT space and so it makes perfect sense that the custom office décor we worked with them to create reflects that. Areas of the office building that would usually be left plain, boring, and lacking in creativity now have the designer look (and well within a design budget). The printer room has a fun new look – not necessary; but an injection of fun to an otherwise boring and monotonous task area making collecting and setting up the print run something more fun!

Creating a Special Space for Your Little Princess

Décor for walls, doors, mirrors and windows, storage, and an ‘oh so perfect’ throw

Girls-Room-Decor

As we glide into winter our minds are on staying indoors and making our spaces cosy and inviting. Recently we discussed decorating boys bedrooms … never an easy task! But now as we collectively bask in the afterglow of “the wedding” let’s look at decorating your little princess’s bedroom!

Decorating girls bedrooms is always something fun, but it is soooo easy to get carried away and go overboard! A top tip here is to start with two or three background pieces and then build up slowly … you are always going to find something new to add ;-)

A perfect starting point is your walls … every room has them so starting there gives you a wonderful backdrop to the fun that can come later! And, what better to decorate your walls with than a pretty wall decal or two (or even three!).

First up take a look at your room … every room will have some obstacles in the way be it doors, wardrobes, windows, or essential furniture; but we can also use these “obstacles” to decorate on! Now, think about what theme or style you’d like to use. Next up is the FUN bit … choosing the decorations!

Starting with the walls gives you a lot more latitude when it comes to decorating the rest of the room with soft furnishings and other décor items. Vinyl Designs have so many pretty designs to choose to decorate your wall space! Have a look at some of our Kids Wall Decals to get an idea of which theme feels right to you.

Let’s have a play here! We’ll show you a sample of our selection for a dreamy little girls bedroom :-). Our theme is not specific but rather soft and dreamy … you could choose nature, animals – wild, friendly, or forest, or even something fanciful like diamonds and fairy tales!

Don't think about walls only though, our decals can also stick on windows, doors, wardrobe doors, you can use your imagination.

Something tall like the Dandelion Wall Decal would look great next to the bed or cot or on a wardrobe door, you can have it customised with your little girl's name, she'll love that!

You can complement the Dandelion with a flutter of Butterflies Decal (you can choose any two colours from the palette to make up your flutter!). Each Butterflies pack includes 16 butterflies in varying sizes from 8-14cm - plenty to make a lovely show!

Let’s finish off our wall display with a couple of VERY cute bunnies resting just next to the bookcase … you can find the perfect little buns in our Fluffy Bunnies Wall Decal!

If nature and animals themes are not your thing you could opt for something simple and minimal like our Mini dots wall decals, there are 50 dots in each pack and you can create a wallpaper effect without the hassle of real wallpaper!

There you are, you’ve created the perfect backdrop to your room with something on each wall that’s fresh, fun, and simple! Our wall decals are removable (so even if you’re renting you can use them without worry of paintwork getting damaged!) and nearly all come in a choice of 25 different colours – for this room we’d choose two main colours and maybe add either a silver or white as a contrast.

With the background done let’s take a look at some other beautiful décor items that we could use to dress our little princess’s room.

Batman Decor for Little Ones

Superheroes wall decals, prints, accessories and more for boys bedrooms!

Batman Wall Decal

Whether you are a home-owner or a home-renter being able to give your kids a space of their own is a priority for most parents.
Decorating a bedroom is a great way to create that individual space! And as a bonus when you give our kids a space to call their own they are often “keen as” to use that space (especially awesome at bedtime!).

Which little boy doesn’t dream of being a superhero? Which little boy wouldn’t love a Batman themed bedroom?
Starting with a neutral monochrome base for your room – too much colour and your theme will get lost! The colour and WOW will come when you add the decorating details.

We’ve put together a few ideas to help you create a special space for your little superhero … and all of these products are non-marking so if you’re renting that’s a definite plus!
Our Batman Mask wall decals are the perfect backdrop to your little hero’s room! Each decal measures 10cm x 9.6cm which is a great size to make a statement and be seen. All of our decals are easy-peasy to apply and when you’re ready to remove them they won’t mark or damage your paintwork. They can even be attached to mirrors, windows, or large glass frames. Just $25 for a set of 12 decals!

Eclectic Lamps To Lighten Up Your Space By Zoe Darlington

Shabby Chic Lamps from the old world

Zoe Darlington Lamps

Do you want to lighten up your traditional home décor and experience eclectic vibes in your home? Everybody wants to brighten up his or her home décor but the issue that they mainly face is they can’t bear to do away with their existing traditional wooden furniture. People do not want cheap furniture or home accessories because quality is paramount to them. Some love their traditional décor and they don’t want to start over. So, the problem arises about how to incorporate traditional furniture with something lighter to enliven the home.

Colour, style, and materials are some of the most important things to choose in order to give your home a facelift.

Products We Love: Vintage Style Milk Bottles

Vintage Home Decor

Urban-Cartel

Ceramic milk bottles from Australian brand Urban Cartel

There’s nothing wrong with being nostalgic. Folks naturally long for times when things seemed simpler and made more sense. Of course, this isn’t always the case. Life has always been hard and fraught with uncertainty or doubt. But when it comes to design, there is no question that vintage is most definitely in. Homeowners and apartment dwellers alike adore decorative pieces that remind them of the past. With that in mind, we will review a product that is as charming as it is useful.

Vintage milk bottles are a sweet reminder of the rustic life most earthlings once enjoyed. Less than a century ago, many of us were working on farms and living off the fat of the land. A major source of income, of course, was provided by milch cows. Dairy farms worked from sunup to sundown to fill the bottles that were often delivered to our front doors. While the milkmen of old have long since hung up their proverbial spurs, milk bottles are more popular than ever!
