How fun is that?

I designed the fabric for my bedroom curtains! It certainly was inspiring, and a pillow would be a lovely addition to my new couch!

I have lots of ideas, mostly for walls and shelves, but never really thought about unlimited design the way Inmod offers it. This is great! Thanks for sharing, no matter if I get that pillow or not. :)

I am the kind of person who can never find what they want in stores and I'm only starting to discover that I like what I can do myself a lot more than what I can find in-store. My favourite design I've done is some picture frames that I made for my son's bedroom out of cardboard and left-over fabric from his quilt cover that I bought from Ikea.

I am a graphic designer and I design as much as I can myself. I don't like the idea of having the same stuff as anyone else. I like my house to be unique to me and my style. I also work for a sign company which means that I can print my designs to a lot of different medias. I have mainly done wall art but have experimented with fabrics as well.

A few years ago I designed pillows and cushions for my bedroom . The idea was to make a colorful and fun set, so I wove the cover of the cushions with yarn of different material. were a little crooked, but my bed looked very colorful.

I designed a table for two at a time when I need a table but spent my salary on art.

I bought a Salvadore Dali lithograph of Jonah and the Whale (which I thought was great symbolism for a table) from his Heritage series, tipped in onto ragboard, mounted it in a plexiglass frame and flipped it on its side. I attached plexiglass legs to another, fitted sheet of plexiglass and placed the lithograph on top. Then I placed a piece of double-pane glass on the top for easy care. This lithograph was signed upside down, so the table is facing the right direction from all four sides. I love it and because it was constructed in removable pieces, it can be deconstructed and put on a wall in the future.

I have never really designed anything for my home other that artwork.

Does taking something someone else designed and finding a whole new use for it count. Because that's my entire apartment.

I've designed lots of stuff for my place, mostly things I've found at rummage sales ,second hand stores,etc. and repurposed.

Designed our bathroom for our first condo which we just sold, you can do some real experimentation with small rooms. This pillow would make a great start to designing the family room of our new home...

What a great idea to have personalized cushions. I've made several things for my home....artwork, fabric painted runners, paper mache bowls and so on. Lately, I've been saving up some of my ethnic tunics to turn into cushion covers.

I recently designed and built a vintage floral black and white headboard consisting of 6 fabric and foam covered squares. It gives my bedroom a classy, sophisticated, chic and modern touch! I frequently get compliments for my handiwork and people are shocked to know it was a DIY project!
