Mural ideas for picture-perfect feature walls
1. A floral fiesta
Once you’ve discovered the endless possibilities that floral wallpapers unlock, it’s only natural to want to go a step further. We are currently going gaga over vibrant floral feature walls that bring a blast of color and vibrancy to any given space. It’s just what a dull, lifeless room needs - case in point, bathrooms, utility areas, stairwells, and so on. Colorful floral wall murals are best placed in clutter-free, monochrome spaces where they can truly steal the show and exude feel-good vibes.
2. A Zen retreat
To those who shy away from wall murals because they’re afraid of going overboard, we recommend serene abstract designs. Composed of muted colors and balanced forms, such wall murals are a great idea in home offices, bedrooms, and understated living rooms. Keep your furniture sleek and minimal to allow the eyes to linger on your abstract statement wall. Using the right layout and lighting, you could create an inspiring, gallery-esque vibe in your home with the help of the right wall covering.
3. Peppy pet themed walls

4. Sweeping city views
Peel and stick wall murals are a great way to create a customized “view” in any room. You can enjoy the experience of being in your favorite city by devoting an entire wall to its unique skyline. We’ve got a range of sophisticated cityscape murals in our collection. They range from quaint Venetian scenes to panoramic views of the Big Apple. You can take a photorealistic route, or add an additional touch of drama by going for a black and white color scheme.
5. Underwater paradise

Nautical wall murals bring excellent opportunities to introduce rich aquamarine tones to your decor and establish a coastal theme in one quick move.
A word of caution: it’s best to avoid glossy vinyl prints when adopting a nautical theme, as they won’t do justice to the vibrant colors and details in the images.
