Bespoke design

We love getting interesting request such as the time we were asked to create a bespoke wallpaper for a kitchen wall. Based on our Galley Head lighthouse print, we had it printed up and delivered right to the door. We also designed a beer label for the Clonakilty Brewing Company using the local Galley Head lighthouse.

If you fancy going wild with one of our prints or have an idea you like to see created in our style, do contact us, we’d love to bring it to life!

Let's start here

My husband, Jason, is a big fan of lighthouses and I had bought him a print of The Designer of Things “Galley Head Lighthouse” around the time we were planning and deciding on the finishing touches for our latest project: creating my dream kitchen/dining room. Whilst looking at colour swatches and imaging what wow-factor thing we could do for a feature wall, in a moment of inspiration, Jason asked if we could somehow put the Galley Head Lighthouse design on that wall?

It was a stroke of genius, and I immediately dropped The Design of Things, Bert, an email to which he almost immediately replied: “I’m in!”

Bert took time to figure out exactly what we wanted, created a design that he super-imposed on a photograph of the same area so we could easily visualise what it would look like, found a supplier that printed bespoke wallpapers, and handled the entire project from first email to delivery with his signature flair for unflappability, consummate professionalism and eagerness to try something new.

What has resulted is a statement piece of unique wall art that we absolutely adore. Anyone else who sees it immediately gets wallpaper envy and sparks a conversation about the who, what, where and why!

Working with Bert is a pleasure. His clarity and uniqueness of design will always ensure you feel you are in safe hands and that your brief is well and truly heard. Thanks Bert!
