Murals or sometimes ‘Muriels’ (my Mum had a friend called Muriel, she lived in Stafford). Anyway, murals are big news at the moment, not just any old wallpaper, but something that is used across a big expanse of wall to make a statement. It could be a cityscape, a forest scene, a never-ending road, seascape or night sky, pretty much anything in fact. They work really well in kids and teenagers rooms, you can even create your own with a favourite photo, but I have picked a few different styles for grown ups. Enjoy.

So love this design - organic, interesting and beautiful to look at. It reminds me of ink on blotting paper or a water stain.

Reminiscent of Rorschach psychological test pictures, I could look at this design for hours. Maybe that is the idea! The pop of emerald on the chair works really well too.
