Murals can make any space unique, and instantly provide atmosphere, whether you are looking for calmness, excitement, or professionalism! If you’re not sure how a mural can work for you, or you’d like one but aren’t sure where to start, take a look at the examples below (please note the murals on this page aren’t painted by me, they are meant to inspire!)
If you want to change the appearance of a room, a trompe l’oeil window can do that. Have any style of window, looking out over any view. ‘Trompe l-oeil’ is French for ‘deceive the eye’, and this type of painting is all about creating the illusion that something 3-dimensional is there when in fact it is not. Windows are the most commone example, but you can do this effect with anything – shelves, bookcases, carvings, vases….
In the example on the left, everything has been painted – the window frame, the view, even the curtains.
If you want to go beyond the window, why not make an entire wall a view to a different location? Make a small room seem large, or just transport yourself to a different place and time.
If you have a painting you love, a great idea is to replicate that painting in large scale. The image on the left shows Van Gogh’s Almond Blossom paintings, reproduced in a much larger scale than the original.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to murals for children’s bedrooms or playrooms. From their favourite hockey player to the seaside, from a woodland scene to a window to another place, a mural brings magic to their room.
Perhaps you have a meditation space or yoga studio, and you’d like to make it a little bit special. A mural can do that. Plants, trees and relaxing views can all add to that overal contemplative experience.
A mural can really make your business stand out, whether it’s a design on the outside of your building, or decoration inside on a wall or counter space.
Got a man cave or a sports den? Murals can be great fun, whether it’s anything from a team logo, to an oversized baseball!
