Wall Mural

It has been a long time since I had the opportunity to paint directly on the wall, what with staying in rented houses and having to deal with irate house owners! But since we moved into our new home, my hands have been itching to dress up one of the walls. The TV room is small and so the accent wall has been painted a light blue and a beautiful silver framed mirror we found from an amazing shop on Commercial Street hung on the other wall.

I love the mirror, but somehow felt the wall looked too plain and due to space constraints, I did not want to add a console table beneath it. So I wondered why not wall decal option? Browsing through the decals available online, I decided I would rather paint it myself! I had some paint remaining from painting the wall, and imagined the same light blue would look great.

Here is the wall before the painting:

We had a great weekend, finally got around to fixing some long pending light fixtures, went shopping, finished my painting and had a great Sunday evening with friends. Here is the finished 3 panel painting on our living room wall.

Art On Multiple Panels

I’m absolutely loving this style of paintings and art on more than a single panel. The concept of carrying the art across 2, 3, or even more number of panels provide exciting visual and serve as the focal point of a room. I’ve been wanting a 3 panel painting for my living room accent wall and looking for some inspiration fell upon these great finds!

They range from paintings on canvass, to digital prints, textured clay mediums, textured wood and even metal.

I was so inspired and encouraged to try something on my own. I bought 3 canvasses and painted a visual very close to my heart and of course would look gorgeous on my blue accent wall. I have finished 2 panels, the 3rd one will be done and mounted on the wall this Saturday! I promise a better pic of all three soon!

The ways in which you can display multiple panel art in your home is truly only limited to your imagination, don’t you agree? Happy Weekend!
