Saying goodbye to a nice long vacation visiting my family in Kentucky (a.k.a the reason for my infrequent blog posts:) I wanted to end it with a mural post! I love artwork in homes and these are two of my favorite inspirations.
I love the Interior mural by Lulu DK that reveals how soothing and striking neutrals can be. She is such an amazing design talent and inspiration. I discovered her textile designs recently, but she also got her start in NY painting interior murals. The mural at right is something I would love to try out. Creating a silhouette on a wall by using just one color, a solid background, and the many values of one hue. Powerful.
Here is a glimpse of the family mural that we just painted. My cousin had wanted to recapture the beaches of the Bahamas where she had just visited. She is going into 6th grade and we wanted the mural to be colorful, yet complimentary. We decided to use the Pool colored paint of her bedroom paired with some other brighter colors that you would find in a teen bedroom. To give you an idea of the scale, this wall was approximately 9′ x 16′.
I was lucky to have help from my Mom and Molly in painting this piece. In the end, we all had our artistic hand in it. Below are some of my favorite details.
Have a great weekend and stay tuned for some postcards and inspirational pics from this trip!
