The idea for The Vinyl Room came about in 2009, while Michaela James - founder and owner of Mount Maunganui based, Design Juice - was looking for cost-effective, yet stylish artwork for her office space.
She quickly realised that vinyl wall decals were the perfect solution; you can buy a large design without investing a huge amount of money, they’re easy to install, and can be changed at any time without damaging the wall.
Unable to find a New Zealand based company, Michaela purchased the following quote decal from an online retailer, and quickly fell in love with the ease of install and how good it looked on the wall.
"People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It's not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn't know it was missing.” - Paola Antonelli
An obvious gap in the market for high quality, stylish, inexpensive wall art, combined with the fact that Michaela already ran a successful design and advertising agency made the creation of The Vinyl Room a no-brainer.
A bit of a passion project on the side, Michaela and her graphic design team began to create wall decal designs in between of client work - each design they created, a reflection of their own aesthetics and interests.
Wall decals are a great way to add a splash of colour and personality to any interior space. Also a good option for offices, cafés, commercial spaces, or retail stores, removable vinyls give you the flexibility to change up your space whenever you want.
If you can’t quite find what you’re looking for, our design team can work with you to create one-off wall decal pieces for your home or business.
