Look up. See white?

If you only see white, you are missing a huge opportunity to make a bold statement for minimal effort. A ceiling is a blank canvas framed by the walls. Leaving it white is a waste of the room’s decorative and creative potential. Here’s why:

1. Ceilings have a decorative function; they literally can raise the roof. Decorated ceilings can lift a room’s perceived height.

2. Like a carpet, a decorated ceiling can pull together all decorative elements (furniture, painting, window treatments, etc.).

3. It can be a high impact-low cost strategy to decorate a room.

4. A ceiling mural can be a great way to inspire children’s play, turning a child’s room into a fantasy world of creativity and imagination.

To wallpaper a ceiling you use less than one-third of the wallpaper needed to cover the walls. Mixing and matching striped wallpaper for borders is a way to define various fields of color within the room without the cost of decorative paint. Above is a constellation mural we recently installed in a boys room in Maryland.

Maybe now’s the time to look up and raise the ceilings in your home.

Dining Room Mural

History decorates this dining room with a mural made of the client’s favorite buildings in Italy. A bit of Florence, a bit of Rome, a bit of Pisa, and a bit of Milan. This mural gives great depth to the room and makes it look much larger than the room really is. The installation of this mural took a day for us to complete.

Walking down to Horseshoe Bay Beach in Bermuda

My Bermuda Scenic Murals collection for Accent Walls. When my three boys were young, we visited my parents in Bermuda each summer. Over the years, I hand-painted my favorite scenes. The paintings bring back beautiful memories for me AND make beautiful accent walls. If you are interested in any, please contact me for mural wallpaper purchase and installation.
