Custom Designed For You

by Lisa Stewart 25 Sep 2011

Having trouble finding the perfect fabric, wall covering, or flooring? Did you know you can design your own? New technology has made it possible for you to personalize anything. Now you can put your own stamp on your home by creating custom designed materials of all kinds: from fabrics to wall coverings to floorings and even to countertops.

I loved this wall covering inspired by the pooch. It's just one example of how you can imagine and then create items that absolutely no one else will have. And don't keep all the fun to yourself!  Let your friends and family be involved in the artistic process too.  When they see their own ideas transformed into something truly unique, they'll feel a special joy that will last for years.

Online retailers and manufacturers have made it easy for you to create one-of-a-kind looks. One great source here in the Durham, NC, area is Spoonflower, a producer of custom printed fabrics. I am pictured there watching the printing process.
