If you're looking for something unusual for the home, DigetexHome bespoke home accessories and furnishings are a refreshing alternative to mass-produced products.

This innovative online shop sells affordable, custom-printed wallpaper murals, roller blinds, fabrics and cushions. You can choose from hundreds of stylish designs - just give them the dimensions of your space and they'll do the rest. They will even change the colours of the products to suit your scheme.

If you are feeling really creative, email your own high-resolution digital photos to the Digetex team and they'll use them to create a wallpaper mural, blind or cushion that's all your own. All the murals arrive as paste-the-wall, easy to hang wallpaper widths.

Digital wall murals are becoming more and more fashionable. Used instead of the traditional feature wall of patterned wallpaper, a mural can make a huge impact in a room. The only difficulty is choosing which photo you'd like to live with for years. The online library has a huge selection to choose from - from urban graffiti designs to pretty vintage florals - but don't miss the impressive New York City skylines series or the photographer Barbara Chandler's captivating Love London photos.

I like the Chinoiserie collection of digitally printed cushions best. The patterns are so pretty, featuring bamboo parchment, cherry blossom and origami patterns. There is a great selection of roller blinds, too, in standard or made-to-measure sizes.

Using blinds as wall art seems obvious, but so many shops still play it safe with plainer options. This is a refreshing tonic to the standard blandness, with pop art images, flags, maps and beach scenes - who says blinds have to be boring?

Digetex continues to expand. Kitchen tea towels, aprons and grand carver chairs are recent additions to the ever-growing selection of printed homewares on offer. Your favourite holiday snap is no longer confined to a photo frame.
