Trending: Wall Murals

I’m back from my whirlwind trip to Australia! Wow, what a fun time I had! It took me a full day to acclimate, reconnect with my family, and feel mostly normal, it’s quite a long journey. Today I’m back to work!

Have you noticed the growing popularity of wall murals? They’re showing up everywhere in room reveals, they’re definitely trending and arguably the cooler version of the painted accent wall that was so popular in the 2000s.

Creating a scene that spans the length and height of a full wall is nothing new, in fact it’s one of the most old school installations in design. Think of the painted frescos from centuries ago, intricate mosaic scenes in ancient cities, and wall murals that cities and towns use to capture and display their history.

Paint and wallpaper are the most commonly used backdrops in interior design, but a wall mural does something different. It tells a story and sets the tone of a space. Murals can be serene, playful, exotic, or even visually transport the viewer to a different time. Of course one can always hire a local artist to make one’s vision come to life, or you can turn to any number of preprinted wall murals. These are a few of my favorites.
