This project was simply furnishing the front room of a small Portland apartment. The apartment is north-facing so we chose a soft yellow for the ceiling to bring in a feeling of warmth and sunlight. The walls are a pale grey, and both colors find their way into the layers of Emily’s abstracted land and sea scape mural.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Create a muralWhat do you see when you look at this wall… a sweep of sandy beach? A wash of ocean blue? Just a few lines of colour can result in a fun visual effect and bring life and interest to a flat surface. If you want something that looks like a large-scale piece of art on a shoestring budget, try getting creative with your paint application. This design could be replicated relatively easily with some good pre-planning, a roll of masking tape, a selection of tester pots and a dollop of patience. If in doubt, ask a professional decorator to help you.
