A French Bulldog stole my heart!

Decorate your home and yourself with an adorable ‘frenchie’!

French-bulldog-1

Bondi Vet says that the French Bulldog is often described as a “clown in the cloak of a philosopher” because of their mischievous attitude hidden behind their sometimes stern face. We reckon that pretty much sums them up!

With great personalities and loving natures they make wonderful family pets … so it’s really no wonder that we also love to decorate with their likeness!

Here at Vinyl Design and Vinyl Living we simply can’t resist creating products with the (not so humble) Frenchie:

  • With our French Bulldog wall decal you’ll feel your heart strings tugging madly as she watches you with ‘those puppy dog eyes’ … and you can have our adorable Frenchie on your wall in any one of our range of 25 colours. The almost perfect solution if you’re not allowed to have a dog ;-) The same adorable Frenchie can go everywhere with you (well, wherever your laptop goes) coz we also make her as a laptop decal!
  • Our hand printed canvas range features the most handsome and noble French Bulldog on either our canvas tote bags, or our canvas cushions. Love this guy in his dashing bright red bowtie!

Give your home a tropical beach vibe wherever you live !

Rattan furniture, leaves prints, jute rugs and everything else for the perfect beach house!

Tropical-Decor-1

We all love the relaxing feel that we get during a summer break, and who doesn’t dream of kicking back in a tropical paradise without a care in the world?! We sure do!

The trouble with the tropical paradise dream is that it’s not always possible to get there … and if you do get there It doesn’t come back home with you. That is … until you decorate your home with that relaxing, soothing, refreshing tropical vibe!

We’ve done some online browsing and have made a list of some of our favourite decorator items to make it easy for you to give your home a tropical beach vibe … wherever you live.

Rattan furniture is making a comeback and is gaining in popularity as we speak! Did you know that rattan furniture not only looks GREAT but it is also environmentally friendly too? Rattan grows all year ‘round and the planting and harvesting of the growth assists in restoring the decrease in the population of trees and forests … and it’s a fantastic alternative to logging too.

Melbourne-based The Family Love Tree hand craft beautiful rattan furniture and homewares using traditional methods and supporting small villages and communities along the way. We love the whole range of The Family Love Tree’s rattan pieces, but the Latitude range has really grabbed our fancy! The Latitude range is described as “elegant, understated design meets lush, tropical sensibilities” and we couldn’t agree more! From bedheads, to planter boxes, to bar stools this range screams “TROPICAL” to us, don’t you agree?

Freedom Furniture has a range of tropical inspired homewares too – affordable and look amazing! Our top picks from Freedom Furniture this month are: Monsteria Leaves in two sizes (look real and you don’t have to water them!), the very glam Ritz 3-tier drinks trolley (makes us think of a posh tropical hotel!), and the very stylish and of so practical Araby Basket and the Landoni Basket.

Brighten up!

Splashes of colour and eclectic design to create your very own individual space!

Eclectic-Home-Decor

You know how sometimes you come across one divine designer piece through your newsfeed or Instagram feed, or even in a proper magazine … a piece that you instantly fall in lust with?!? One thing leads to another and you find yourself tracking that one solitary piece of divineness to the website where you can purchase it … and then you DISCOVER a whole lot more divine pieces that you fall utterly head over heels for? We do!

For us it all started when we caught sight of this gorgeous print by Brent Rosenberg. Titled ‘Beautiful Morning - White’ it is part of his amazing ‘Beyond the Noise’ collection. Printed on 300gsm bright white cotton rag paper with archival prints; this is a limited edition with a print run of only 50 and each one signed by the artist.

Where did we discover this gorgeous print and what else did we find there? Co.Co the shop can be found in Bay Street Port Melbourne, and of course they are also online for those of us not lucky enough to be able to shop in person! Co.Co describes themselves as “a colourful collection of people and personalities with a consuming passion for beautiful design” … we reckon that a perfect description for the amazing collection of eclectic and beautiful pieces we’ve discovered in their online store!

Some of our Co.Co favourite finds (in addition to that amazing ‘Beautiful Morning - White’ piece) are:

Mongolian Lambswool Clay Cushions: Oh my gosh, they are soooo soft! What a beautiful focal point one of these would make to your lounge chair, or a sumptuous addition to a special chair in the reading corner!

Lynette Velvet Musk Cushion: The Mongolian lambswool cushion is gorgeous but why not go the extra mile in lush and add one of these stunning cotton velvet cushions too?! Mixing textures is a wonderful way to add luxe style!

Margot 3-seater Velvet Sofa: This, now THIS, sofa was designed so be sat on … and enjoyed! Covered in the most sumptuous soft velvet, or in a stunning fabric, you will fall in love with this sofa like no other! As if it wouldn’t be difficult enough choosing just one colour/fabric (there are five to choose from) you’ll also need to choose from either brass or black legs … our vote goes for the brass!

Milan Chair – Blush: If you’ve got a sofa you’ll need an armchair as well ;-) The Milan chair with it’s brass legs and velvet upholstery is the perfect companion to that gorgeous Milan sofa!

Nel Lusso Mushroom Lamp in Gold: One word describes this … D-I-V-I-N-E. Oh wow, you will love this lamp … the ambient glow it gives is truly swoon-worthy!

Well, looks like we’ve just furnished a room … it doesn’t take long! We’re sure we could keep going forever because we are in LOVE with Co.Co! Now, we’re off to check out the Co.Co sale pages ;-)

Bring some outdoors in, as we prepare to wave goodbye to winter!

We’re craving greenery and have discovered some beautiful pots, other botanical inspired delights.

Pots-and-Plants

Indoor plants are SO good for us … they are scientifically proven to improve our moods, improve air quality, help us sleep or study better (not at the same time!) … and, they look great too!

But, it’s not just a matter of picking any ol’ plant and bringing it indoors ;-) It’s important to select the right plant for your home and treat them right so they will groooow and thrive!

You could aim for a plant in every room, and then maybe bring in a few more to particular areas for the added benefits plants will bring as well as for impact and to brighten a space that could do with a little more interest.

If you are lucky enough to have a wide window ledge in your kitchen, hall, or laundry you could dedicate the space to an indoor garden – if you aren’t lucky enough to have the ledge you could ‘fake’ one by using a couple of shelve brackets right under the bottom of the lower architrave of a mid-height window, add a shelf and then pretty up with your plants! These gorgeous Jasper Timber Pots by Home Republic are available from Adairs and would look AMAZING in a large collection!

For a small hall table or corner space how striking would these Cylinder Pots from Pop and Scott look?!? You could pot them with plants of varying heights and foliage, use them to display foliage from outdoor plants, or even fill them with faux blooms from Adairs beautiful selection (seriously, they look real!).

Do you remember how exciting it was as a child to pop a stem in a glass of water and watch it slowly grow roots? Well, Ivy Muse have these beautiful ‘Stem’ vases that are ideal for propagating plants (like the popular designers choices Devil’s Ivy or Monstera) – made from clear glass with a pretty 3-D printed ceramic top by the Alterfact Studio in Brunswick these vases are absolutely divine!

Time for a kitchen décor spruce up!

Freshen up your kitchen using wall decals

Kitchen-Decals

Whether you love to cook or you’re ‘meh’ about cooking the kitchen is the heart of every home! We tend to spend so much time in our kitchen … whether it’s cooking, eating, or cleaning up … that we don’t often get the chance to give our kitchen décor a bit of a spruce up.

Vinyl Design has a great range of wall decals that would look amazing in any kitchen! Got patterned wallpaper instead of painted walls? No problem … because Vinyl Designs wall decals can be used on windows and doors as well!

Use our chalkboard decals to help your family remember what they’re meant to be doing … or what you need to buy. Add a touch of whimsy to your kitchen with our trio of birds chalkboard, a quirky moka chalkboard, or these fun speech bubble chalkboards. All of our chalkboard wall decals are the perfect size for writing your notes … and we’ll even send you the chalk!

Inside the pantry (although these are so nice they’d look fantastic out on the benchtop!) our chalkboard labels are perfect for labelling your pantry staples – each pack has six labels and you can choose from six different designs for your chalkboard label pack.

The kitchen shelves wall decal is super fun and can really jazz up a kitchen that doesn’t have a lot of fitted wall cupboards or shelves. Being wipe clean you can also position them above your cooktop, which is a real bonus. Each set comes in your choice of two colours – go bold, go retro, or go glam, the choice is yours! These kitchen shelves decals are supplied with each piece ready for you to attach individually so you can make up your own composition … now that’s going to be fun!

No kitchen is complete without tea towels! Over at our sister site Vinyl Living we have absolutely gorgeous 100% linen Australian made and designed tea towels in eight original designs … our tea towels make the drying up a breeze (and even fun!). Order individually or choose any two tea towels for the special package price of just $40.

Our “A meal without wine is called breakfast” quote wall decal would suit just about any breakfast bar! And in a choice of 25 colours you are sure to find a colour to suit your kitchen colour scheme.

Maybe you’ve got a specific design in mind for a custom reusable wall decal? We love doing custom wall decals, so if this is something you’d like to discuss please get in touch with us and together we can make it work!

We’d love you to share how and where you’ve used your Vinyl Designs decals with us – share on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #vinyldesignaustralia or tag us @vinyldesign. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for more tips and ideas on how to dress up your world with Vinyl Designs!

Using wall decals to customise your family’s space

Quotes-Wall-Decals

Does your family have a special saying, or is there a special quote that you love? Maybe you’ve always wanted to dress up a wall in your home but don’t know quite where to start?

Our custom quote decals in-situ

We love doing custom work and when we think about all the custom quotes we’ve created over the years for our lovely customers there are two that really stand out … both of them looked amazing and the love for them keeps coming and coming!

How beautiful is this girl's room created by Justine Brown of Chocolate Brown Interior Styling! It’s the perfect bedroom decal to inspire both little people and big people who are thinkers, doers, and dreamers. Justine chose to have this decal created in our silver colourway … what would your colour choice be for your room? Ps. We love the wooden swing Justine used in this room too!

Our super happy customer Jessica had a wall that needed some dressing and what a beautiful way she chose to dress it! This family and friends daily reminder of living a happy and caring life has really taken on its own place in Jessica’s home and looks amazing!

Can you imagine something like these on your walls … remember our decals come in 25 different colours and are removable so even if you’re renting or don’t want to mark your walls you can decorate your home with a special quote too!

We’re very excited to show you this picture featuring our Floor Lamps Wall Decal; this is Janet Lee’s apartment, Janet is the smart person behind Living in a Nutshell, a website about decorating ideas for small spaces now also made into a book!

Her motto is “Designing out of the box…when you live in one” and we couldn’t agree more, it’s not so difficult to create an amazing and original space even when on a budget and in a rented apartment, a small office or dorm room!

We love how she combined our vinyl lamps with real light bulbs creating a very effective décor on a budget!
