Geometric shapes, focal-point murals, contrasting ceilings: turning walls into works of art is the new in-thing, and it’s gaining interest all over our Insta feeds. The best part? You can just paint over it if you move or change your mind. So dig out those paint samples, and scroll on for our favourites.
Interior designers @2lgstudio have been throwing shapes (and painting them on walls) for years – we’d go as far as to say they’re the OGs. Case in point? This pastel paradise. Created for our campaign collab last year, the use of shape, colour and comfort make for a seriously happy home.
Painting your own mural? Pick out colours from your fave accessories, and use these shades in your masterpiece. That’s why @the_creative_planner’s retro room looks so put-together, despite the far-out design.
Creating a mural doesn’t have to mean coming out of your comfort zone. We love @myoldbrandnewhome’s soft pastel tones. Offset with luxe brass and plenty of texture, it all makes for the perfect Nordic-inspired nest.
Patience is a virtue. And we’re sure @barbara_ramini_interiors exercised some when creating this piece of geometric goodness. The unexpected use of colour and shape is a totally modern take on a classic kids’ room.
Earthy, boho interiors are so on-trend right now. Case in point? @theottohouse. That deep terracotta curve, wooden headboard and abstract, arty throw nod to a mid-century Californian abode. The ultimate place to peace out.
The beauty of this trend is that you can really play, and we think @designbykinship’s got the bright idea. By matching the wall to the linen below, getting into bed must feel like diving into a tropical paradise. The pared-back surroundings also stop it from feeling too busy.
“A little sunshine” – that’s exactly what our homes need right now. This zesty yellow wall art frames the shelves beautifully, and emphasises all of @living31_’s happy greenery. The finishing touch? Just add coffee, and hope the rain holds off.
