Dishwashers By Design.

By Alison August 14, 2007 7 Comments 1 Min Read



Well now, I’m really not sure how I feel about this whole business of applying giant sized stickers to household appliances to snazz them up a  bit…

Buy these two from Fairy for £5.00 each (All proceeds go to the Make A Wish Foundation) and you will have bought yourself a little piece of Celia Birtwell  or Louise Redknapp with which to decorate your dishwasher.

Which would I think be all well and good, were it not for the fact that the designs are cruelly compromised by the Fairy advertising in the corner: when I spend my days decanting this and that into vintage loveliness in order to banish ugly packaging from my life once and for all (decant! decant! decant!), the last thing I want is to add advertising disguised as design to something as big as a household appliance…

Heavens above, I’m a stroppy madam aren’t I? They are for charity after all.

This week sacrifice a magazine and go make a childs dream come true instead.

    These are neat. I also hate company information on my goods and will go through much effort to remove any sign of company packaging info on my products, even if it means re-cantering. These decals are vinyl so, it seems it would be easy to cut off the "fairy" logo. I like the stacked dishes decal- do you think it would distract from the pile in the sink?!

    O.M.G. Ive just found you …and I can't stop laughing, and adoring and discovering. A cool chick with a S.O.H (just check out the "lonley heart" lingo) and in the U.K too. Iv'e died gone to heaven and there is a God after all!!
    I'll be back. (I couldn't stay away!) xxx

    P.S I can't believe that the "Bird cage" has been sold!! I feel like "Mutley" when things go wrong…"Sassin, frassin, dassin"!

    I like these! We're redoing our kitchen and hopefully a new dishwasher is in the pipeline so I might go and have a look at the link 🙂

    I agree with Raina, it must not be too hard to cut off the logo and I really like the blue one. That would look lovely in my kitchen, but alass……. I don't have a dish wasser

    Hmmm…I'm thinking yellowed edges when subjected to cleaning fluids…
    could be used as an excuse not to clean, though…

    Alison, I agree but think there is a work-around. I stencilled the fronts of my washer and dryer in my old house in Virginia–and I know you know how to stencil. Now that you've brought this up, I may do this again on my current washer/dryer.
