Handmade by Me is flooring it…

Floor vinyls for everyone! House and Leisure have listed floor vinyls as no 2 in their “top 26 flooring finishes”. This is what they had to say…”Today’s vinyl is slick, highly durable, easily maintained and installed, cost-effective, and can mimic anything from travertine, quartz and stone to real wood, porcelain and slate.” I can design you your own custom floor finish if you’d like, or pick one of my current designs like my Square Style in Pink as featured in the House and Leisure article below. Email me at sera@handmadebyme.co.za for a quote.

My lovely wallpaper supplier Smart Art  is very kindly and generously sponsoring me some wallpaper for my Design Indaba Expo space. I am so excited about this as you will not only get to see my wallpaper in action as wallpaper, but I am going to show you how you can use it in other ways too. Who said wallpaper is only for walls? Without giving too much away, this blopost is really a big shout out to the lovely people of Smart Art to say thanks so much, I really appreciate your generosity and support!

And now for those of you who don’t know these lovely people, here is a bit about what they do.

handmade by me is now climbing the walls…

Its finally OFFICIAL, my wallpaper collection is ready to go! I am really excited about this as I have always wanted to do it with my designs, but was waiting until I moved back to Cape Town to start looking for suppliers and printers.

The wallpaper itself has a lovely slightly textured finish which really lifts the designs, and each order placed is printed to your size specification with installation services in all major cities round South Africa should you need. For all you overseas customers I am more then happy to post the panels out to you.

I can also do all the designs in the form of a wall vinyl instead of wallpaper which is slightly easier to apply, and you have the option of a splash back finish which is applied to the vinyl for areas which might come into contact with water such as a bathroom or pool area. Please someone do the another rainy day in their bathroom please!!! : )

If you have a room or area you would like to make a change to, and you’re not sure what you would like to do, send me a photo and I will help show you what you could do to completely transform your space into something new and exciting.

To view the whole range of wallpaper designs click here. To make any purchases please contact me with your specs, or view my Etsy store to buy individual panels.
