The trend of oversized patterns and murals on interior walls, is still on it’s way up! If you were like me, when you hear “wallpaper mural” you think of the 70′s versions of forested and jungled rooms. Well, not to fear these are not your 70′s murals. And there are no variegated moss green shag carpets either….shiver. Did I ever tell you we removed exactly this type of carpet from our first home, along with some green palm frond wallpaper? Yup, we did …but I digress.
Today’s murals are nothing like that. They are pure gorgeousness.
I think this one above is my favourite. I’d love to put it in a bedroom at the cottage. The panels are 18″w x 110″h (and come in 4 panel packages) so they are great for rooms with high ceilings.
Can you tell what this one is? Red, rusting metal. Fabulous in an office lobby, or as shown here, a boardroom. Perfectly appropriate in an engineers office or metal company.
This one is cork. So neat, I kind of see pencil shavings in this one.
This would be so great in a living room with some very sleek, white and soft neutral furniture and a splash of red.
Of course, concrete is so popular right now. I can see this around a gas fireplace insert, instead of a traditional surround for a modern contemporary feel. It would also be great as a backsplash in a kitchen with glossy cabinetry. The contrast would be amazing!
Probably my second favourite. If you had a cottage or country home that didn’t have wood walls inside, this would be the perfect solution to bring in some of that warmth.
Now, this one I would put in an elegant spa, a powder room or a women’s boutique. Beautiful and oh so classy!
So which one would you use and where?
