Remember those cardboard dolls when we were kids? The ones you could dress up with different paper clothes? I bloody loved them! Well, this is like the adult version!

Carli Harrison, an Adelady has revolutionised the way we style our homes!

Design It Yourself is a web based app (mobile version hopefully coming soon) can be used on tablets and pc’s and is really great at encouraging everyday designers to create their own style for their homes, it then gives you easy access to purchase the items you’ve used.

How cool is that? If you’re thinking about re-styling your home or even just a corner of your house, give this a go! I will warn you though, it’s a wee addictive.

Here are Carli’s top 5 points WHY you should download the app!


5 Reasons to Use Design it Yourself

1. It’s completely free!

Design it Yourself is free to use on your PC and tablet.  We wanted to ensure that everyone had access to this fabulous new design platform.

2. It’s super fun

It’s never been more fun to create your own style. A simple 2D flat lay design with easy search function for products that can then be dragged onto your blank canvas.  You can resize, place items on top of each other and rotate them.  You can save your designs into your account and you can print them.

3. Easy to purchase products

There are 100’s of products to choose from that have been uploaded by various retailers.  All items that are selected as part of your design can be purchased through your shopping list on the retailer’s website.

From the comfort of your lounge you can coordinate colour and style easily, giving you the confidence to purchase online.
