Dress up a plain, neutral-hued wall with a vibrant wall mural. If you don't want to hang wallpaper, a painted mural is another way to add a pop of colour and interest to a boring wall. Use a painted wall mural to accent any room in your house. Prior to painting the mural, choose a theme to coordinate with the room decor. Paint the mural yourself using stencils if you're crafty, or hire a professional to do it for you.

Rainforest Theme

If you or your child is a nature lover, transform a bedroom into a tropical haven with a rainforest-themed wall mural. Begin with a white or tan wall, and design a lush forest of green trees of varying heights. Include plenty of palm trees and ferns, along with bright orange, yellow and red tropical flower patterns. Enhance the mural with a menagerie of rainforest creatures, such as vibrantly-hued birds perched in the trees, sloths, monkeys, tigers, colourful butterflies, snakes, lizards, insects and frogs. Create whimsical patterns, and use touches of glow-in-the-dark paint for a child's bedroom, or design a more realistic-looking mural for an adult's bedroom or bathroom. A waterfall will add a sense of fluidity to the mural.

Garden-Inspired Look

If you're a garden enthusiast, transform a bedroom, sunroom, den or home office wall with a charming outdoor scene. A garden-inspired wall mural will infuse a room with a soothing and serene touch. You can start with a vibrant yellow or orange accent wall or a bright white palette. Bring a bit of the outdoors in by painting a garden full of vibrant yellow, orange, red, purple and pink tulips, roses, sunflowers, hydrangeas, daises, lilies and other spring and summer blooms. Create a respite-inspired look by incorporating a brick pathway and garden bench into the design. Finish the mural with a few vibrant butterflies and buzzing bee patterns.

Enchanted Scene

Delight a young girl with an enchanted forest bedroom wall mural. Go for a fairy tale-inspired look complete with girlie colours and a castle. Create the castle design to appear off in the distance with a long brick pathway leading to it. Design plenty of lush green trees and grass, along with a misty pond surrounded by white ponies and winged fairies. Incorporate dreamy shades of light pink, lavender, silvery white, dusty blue and muted green.
