Wall Murals

When you think of a wall mural what comes to mind? For me I think of folk art and childrens bright paintings, like those you would find at a school or playground.

I am feeling a little inspired by artist David Bromleys home and think it is time to bring back the wall mural. You see, paint is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to rejuvenate your home, so why not combine this with a little creativity and put your personal stamp on your house? Granted, not all of us are blessed with the artistic ability to do this freehand but don’t let this turn you off! Many murals are created by using a projector, so if you can trace you can create!

Find a design, image or photo that you love or draw something yourself then use the projector to enlarge the artwork to fill your wall, mark out the design with pencil and then you’re ready to paint! Be honest about your abilities, realistic images will require shading and blending of colours so it is probably a good idea for beginners to start with a more graphic images that have clear blocks of colour.

Below are some inspiration for different styles of wall murals for all levels of ability. Take a peek and hopefully they will inspire you to take the plunge. And if worst comes to worst, and you absolutely hate the result, you can always just paint over it. No biggie, see?

Still scared? Why not paint a wall with blackboard paint and let you friends, family and visitors create their own mural for you!
