Wouldn’t it be wonderful when you step into a room to step into a different world or time? I love spaces that tell a story and stand out from the rest and I enjoy accomplishing this with a stunning wall mural. You can add style to a room and show off your creative side by covering one whole wall or wrapping an entire room with a wall mural. You can give your guests the impression of dining on a lush hilltop with a country hillside mural, or bringing exotic taste with palm trees flourishing the walls. The opportunities are endless!

Old world colonial decor is one of my favorites decorating styles. I am in love with this black and white dessert scenery in this fantastic living room. Photo Wall has some great classical art murals like this early 15th century print (I am in LOVE with at the moment) that could definitely mimic this style. A touch of orange in the mural makes really makes this look pop!

If you don’t already have a family tree in your home, you can easily create one combining what they call a “saloon wall” and a tree mural. Use a group of mis-matching frames of all sizes and hang them up right under the tree on your wall. It won’t look like and obviously cheesy family tree but will serve as a great conversation starter.

Some homeowners may not be prepared to take the plunge with a permanent mural – that’s okay, there are solutions! You can always purchase a wall mural printed out onto a canvas for easy removal when you decide to re-decorate your space.

Combine the rest of the colors used in your home with your chosen mural and make sure they complement each other. Take the background color of the mural and find the closest match you can for a seamless look that will make your space run on for miles. Consider painting the ceiling a complementary color as well to tie the whole look together.
