As we move forward into a new year, we wanted to highlight our amazing designers in a fresh, new way. Designer Custom Source is excited to add a new Designers page to our website. This page will feature designers from all walks of life that share the same vision – their love for design.
Fine Art Photographer & Designer, Cheryl Maeder, of Gardenhouse & GardenWalls is the first of many. Gardenhouse was first created by combining two of Cheryl’s passions; her love of photography and restoring vintage furnishings. Now she has entered into a new venture creating her new wallcoverings with nature’s beauty in mind. This collaboration of custom cushions with a backdrop of artful and nature-expressive wallcoverings has been the inevitable partnership of Designer Custom Source and GardenWalls.
“GardenWalls, our nature-inspired wallcoverings, grew out of our client’s design requests to further marry their indoor/outdoor Gardenhouse home furnishings. I receive my inspiration from nature; the play of color and light inspire my designs and photography. Each of the collections feature elements that I photograph in nature. Just walking through the mangroves to the seashore, or strolling through the everglades in South Florida, I find myself constantly being inspired to integrate nature into my designs. I approach the world with a holistic philosophy. For me, art and design are inseparable. I see the GardenWalls Collections as Wall Art bringing the outdoors into our indoor living spaces. The GardenWalls are custom designed to fit any wall size. They are created on a high quality Type 2 vinyl and are Class A Fire Rated. GardenWalls are 52 inches wide and as they are custom designed for any wall size, the height is dependent on the clients’ needs. The GardenWalls were created for hotels, spas, healthcare facilities, schools, restaurants, and other commercial spaces, as well as private residences. The GardenWalls are applied just as wallpaper by a wallpaper installer. We have pricing for the Trade as well. Minimum order is 10 feet x 10 feet wall size.” ~ Cheryl Maeder
Known for re-imagining vintage furnishings, this beautiful creation was dreamed up by Cheryl herself. Using her talent of combining color, pattern, and unique vision, these classic Sunbrella fabrics were transformed by our DCS workroom into whimsical cushions and pillows for this gorgeously refreshed settee; all placed on a perfect scenery of Japanese Spring in the color turquoise. “DCS added GardenWalls to further enhance the idea of ‘custom,’ which we pride ourselves on specializing and providing to our clients in home soft goods. These GardenWalls will be easy to access from our site and will give a classy and high-end feel to many commercial businesses and home interiors. A great partnership that is certain to benefit both companies.” ~ Anita Winter, Art & Media Director
