DESIGN MY WALLS
Ben from Design My Walls believes designmywalls.com.au was born out of desire to take a plain wall, an idea, and create visually stunning, strong statements. The availability of amazing self-adhesive materials, and the success of DIY renovation shows like 'House Rules' and 'The Block' has seen the rapid rise in popularity of removable wallpaper wall murals.
What differentiates theirs from decals and normal wallpaper, is the material that is used to produce the wall mural. It's a 100% Polyester woven fabric, which has a textured matte finish, is self-adhesive and designed for easy installation for two people.
The printing of the wall murals is only a small part of the process though. Design My Walls offers a full custom service and works with the client to find that perfect image to make their wall unique. They can also upload their own image, choose an image or get inspiration from the gallery.
It is then left to Ben to work with that image to make sure it is optimized for use in large scale printing. After 15 years as a Senior Designer and Art Director on national magazines including Top Gear, he knows how to achieve the maximum quality with what he has to work with.
Design My Walls create arguably, the most custom and affordable wall murals in Australia.
DESIGNED + MADE IN
Narara, New South Wales
Where do you get your inspiration?
"I grab my inspiration from everything. Old factories, cabin walls, cities or trees. The hardest part is deciding the image, because the possibilities are endless. Even when the client knows what they want, sometimes there maybe thousands of images to go through and find the exact one they are after."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"It sounds cliché, but the next one. I have a new favourite everyday. At the moment it's what I like to call the textured look. And that can range from anything from an industrial concrete wall to wooden sleepers or a bridge."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"Obviously our woven fabric. It's just cool. It's hard to explain the material until you see it. It has a textured matte finish and is easy to apply to a wall. It leaves no residue and it's crease resistant. The reason I started doing this, is because of this material."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"Growing up obsessed with car design and coming from long designing background in car magazines, it would have to be based around that. You can achieve some amazing illusions and statements with car wraps these days and that could create a great 'design buzz'."
