When we saw this image featured under Bedrooms on a design blog, we instantly thought: what a great solution for jazzing up a place, like the drab walls of a rental studio a friend is struggling to make into a home, however temporary. We started looking into services that make wall murals, imagining cool images from ourarchive wrought BIG.
First we came across Murals Your Way, a service will make any high-resolution image you have into a 6-x-4-foot mural on canvas, fabric-backed vinyl or a repositionable material. If you planned it right, you could forge a really huge mural by seaming together smaller panels. Murals Your Way’s faq gives a sense of what’s possible, and there are A LOT of possibilities.
Then when we were hunting around for the photo credit for the bedroom image, above, we discovered that the mural came from Pixers, a company that sells bespoke wall murals printed on vinyl or repositionable material. They have thousands of images, allowing you to decorate your walls with scenes of Paris, geometric colors, or a rainforest…
There are a number of ways to afixing your mural to the wall, from permanent wall-paper-style treatments, to impermant solutions like grommets to free hang your mural or adhering them to portable wood panels. We’re wondering about putting a mural on the ceiling, or using one to cover our homely fridge.
When we began to imagine a wall mural, first we remembered the wonderful muraled bath at The Villa Noailles, an early modernist house, now an arts center, in southeastern France, built by architect Robert Mallet-Stevens.
Then suddenly Hiroshi Sugimoto‘s work popped into our head…
His serene feeling would be our inspiration.
What would you put on your wall?
