Adelaide businesswoman Carli Harrison is connecting online consumers with local home ware retailers on her new style board website Design it Yourself.

With South Australian software developer Axios, Carli has created a blank style board where consumers can select from a range of interior products, wall colours and floor coverings to create room designs.

“It’s not an e-commerce site. What we’re doing is promoting retailers – not just in South Australia, but around the country – and sending consumers back to the retailer’s website to purchase products and services,” Carli says.

Tips to create a home that reflects your own style
4 Oct 2016 By Carli Harrison

When it comes to designing our homes, it’s easy to get caught up in the millions of images of décor inspiration that are available to us and lose sight of what our own sense of style really is.

We live in an internet obsessed world where there are so many resources to inspire our creative side. Looking through home magazines and browsing images on Pinterest, Instagram and interior design blogs can assist greatly when inspiring and determining the foundation of your style.

Creating a folder or inspiration board of images that you like is a great place to start, however keep in mind you don’t need to duplicate something out of a magazine or website to create a beautiful home – your own style is what will make your home beautiful.

There are some great online tools out there to inspire you and design rooms that reflect your style. Pinterest for instance is a great staring point for ideas, and with Design It Yourself – a new app for home decorating – you can recreate and redecorate your rooms on screen as many times as you like, saving your favourite items to a shopping list to revisit later.
