I first laid eyes on this wallpaper while scrolling through Instagram. It was this whimsical cityscape pattern being used in a downtown high rise office which I found so “out of the box” and inspiring! The large black and white butterfly is what sold me! The color and quality of this paper is top notch, plus it's thick and durable and extremely easy to work with.
Add a Stunning Floral Wallpaper Mural to Your Happy Place!
Originally our wall was a terra cotta color. You’ll notice the bottom of the wall is painted black to accent the new mural. To prepare the wall, we sanded to smooth out the surface. This helped not only with mural adhesion, but also with its final appearance. We then laid out the mural panels on the clean floor in the correct order before applying them to the wall. This mural was 4 panels by 2 panels so we needed a good sized area! We also marked the wall where each panel would begin and end which made it easier to match each panel’s seams to the next.
Starting with our first piece, we applied paste and carefully placed it against the wall. We rolled it until all the paste was evenly distributed wiping off any excess paste from the edges. We did the same with the remaining panels.
I just couldn’t believe how beautiful this looked when finished.
This is this view that I see all day long as I pass through my home! It is flooded with light and literally calls me into the space and inspires me to be creative! This is my happy place!
