I’ve spoken about this a few times on the blog but I am currently renovating my home. When I moved in the style was very 1980’s and like most people we are on a limited budget. I’m not somebody who does white/cream/beige throughout my house. I like a little colour and like a statement wall. As an alternative for wallpaper I have considered wall murals which are relatively inexpensive and can easily be adhered to the wall with little DIY expertise.
Wall murals are great for small rooms, as well as larger surfaces and they can dramatically change the design and visual aspect of any room. Murals are not expensive and allow you to customize your home. They are easy to apply yourself and are much easier to put up than wallpaper as their is no pasting of the paper required. Wall murals could cover an entire wall or just add a focus point. Many are also suitable to be wiped clean meaning little finger marks can just be wiped down with a damp cloth instead of needing to repaint a wall or replace your wallpaper. They also have the advantage of being eye catching and can bring interior features in to a room like this faux brick wall.
My 13 year old daughter is flamingo mad and she knew straight away that is what she wanted in her bedroom. She picked some pretty flamingo wallpaper for behind her bed. It’s a beautiful coral and grey. The remaining walls are painted in a coral paint but as her room is rather large the walls look a little bland.
When searching for a something suitable I came across this gorgeous flamingo wall art which will look stunning hung over her desk:
Whilst I was looking for wall murals for my daughters room I came across some that would look fantastic for my son who has chosen a Marvel theme for his room.
I’m really liking this wall mural of Captain America’s shield for over his desk. The wall is painted a pale grey and I think it will add some interest to the rather plain wall.
I think its rather clear that I do love tea and especially love a good afternoon tea. I also love a little bit of quirky. If you can combine afternoon tea and quirky all the better. I think this Alice at the Mad Hatters Tea Party wall mural sum up quirky afternoon tea perfectly and would look lovely on my new renovated kitchen wall.
Have you ever thought about using a wall mural in your home?
