Tulip Mural

By Morgan Bricca August 1, 2010

Once upon a time there was an awkward wall that lived in a dining room. This wall was the focal point of the dining room. Unfortunately, the wall was broken up by a misplaced sconce that didn’t get along with framed art, and was always arguing with the window that hovered above it. So my client and I brainstormed. We gathered inspiration from items in her house that she loved. We noticed a floral design in her calendar, rug, and even pillows. The result: a lively and dramatic mural in the form of a tulip and its leaves, with a monochromatic floral pattern backdrop. It transformed what was once an awkward wall to a strong and balanced wall that highlights their unique style. All the other elements in the room now live together, happily, ever after.
