Mural and Wallpaper
Two things most people want nothing to do with. This abstract wallpaper mural adorns the wall of a teenage boy’s bedroom wall. The pressure was on to make this perfect – he is a student at a local charter arts school, so you know, zero pressure. Thankfully wallpaper is making a big come back. The options are endless when it comes to accent walls in wallpaper. Add in the abstract look and things get a little more challenging.
Small Room, Big Impact
This bedroom is on the smaller side with only one large unobstructed wall. The requirements were for the accent wall to be cool, incorporating gray and green. I went directly to a source for custom wallpaper murals and started the design process there. After selecting the perfect shades of green I was able to customize the design. Because part of this wall is behind a door when open, and a bed is in front of it, I wanted to make sure the majority of the design would been seen.
Wallpaper is only good as it’s installation. I can’t stress enough to hire a professional wallpaper hanger. (I’ve hung wallpaper, I know how it goes. And for a mural, you don’t want to mess around) Everything about this wallpaper mural is custom, down to the paper it is printed on.
This mural arrived in a large tube. I unrolled it on installation day with the wallpaper hanger. Each piece rotated top to bottom to match up the mural. This was a direct paste installation, meaning the paste went on the wall not the paper. Just one paper hanger put this up in an afternoon. It would have taken me a week most likely. I popped back in halfway through to check on the progress. The seems are perfect so it doesn’t even look like wallpaper at all.
End result is stunning
The final result is breath taking to say the least. The deep rich green hues are stunning. The add depth and drama in all the right places. I held my breath to hear how the art student liked his new accent wall. He loves it! This was definitely a great way to set this space apart. Accent walls can be fun but this one went way beyond the fun factor.
