When thinking about all the ways you can bring a dose of freshness and individuality to your rooms, besides changing the curtains, the bedding or the carpets, the option to look at carefully is giving life to your walls. Let’s get one thing straight: white walls are not alive. They’re point blank like an empty canvas picturing nothing. And if you like staring at a blank surface, than look for another way to freshen your space, but if you care about the overall appearance of your rooms and the design they represent, than the walls have to be treated right. And that means putting some effort into it.
You can always go with painting your walls with one single colour, which is cool if you’re aiming towards a very simple, loose design with elements of traditionalism and class. But if you’re more prone towards playful designs, something witty and catchy, a mural for wall is the right choice.
Feng Shui also supports the use of murals, but of course, with very careful consideration of various factors like position, objects that will face the wall and the mural and similar. However, Feng Shui isn’t a law in interior design, so it doesn’t mean you have to obey it so blindly. Let’s get a little loose here, shall we?
Flowers on your walls
A mural for wall that pictures flowers in pinky or red colours on a white surface is just so cute. It’s the type of mural that works both ways: it keeps the calmness and tranquillity a white wall brings to a room and it adds the necessary splash of colour through the flowers to give it sort of spring freshness and fun. It’s the perfect choice for transforming an otherwise non-sense room design into a really fabulous ambiance.
Of course, choosing the right wall for placing the mural is a story of its own. A mural of this kind should stand as a decorative element, which means it shouldn’t be placed on the wall behind the TV or a large entertainment unit. Think something like the picture above.
A splash of colour to kill the boredom
A room in fresh colours like white, pale grey or beige is a good choice but it’s a boring one, if we have to be completely honest. You’ll eventually start to suffocate in that monotonous ambiance and you’ll start looking for something to focus your eyes on. That’s where an artistic wall mural comes into play. It doesn’t really have to picture something in particular, but it does have to be a combination of really good and powerful colours.
Bring the beauty of the city into your rooms
I personally adore the sight of a large city being brought in the comfort of my own living room, bedroom or dining room. It makes you feel like you’re not in your home, but feeling comfy and happy somewhere in a large metropolis. Black and white city wall murals are perfect for the bedroom as they accentuate the intimacy the room needs to emit. The more colourful ones are great for dining rooms.
