The Writing’s On the Wall

Some thoughts on how a custom mural can breathe life into a stale interior

Designer Advice on Wall Murals:

“In a contemporary setting a mural can be such a breath of excitement. It could even spill onto the floor and go up an opposite wall just a little bit. A mural doesn’t have to be limited to paint or wallpaper, but it can be ceramic, wooden or metal. Your vision is only limited by your imagination.”

“Murals are an immovable piece of art. They create an atmosphere, set the tone or mood, or illustrate a theme.”

Eric Doucette

Artist and faux finisher


“They work great in kids’ spaces and nurseries. A mural can be a subtle accent wall without overtaking the whole room.”

Kathy Weiss

“Murals establish a unique style in a home and announce that the owners reject cookie-cutter home design.”
