I've admired mural wallpapers for ever. And I've been thinking it might be time to get some of this action in my own place.
My favorites are the grisaille murals. Now, picture something like one of these...
...with my 70s brass etageres. I know, crazy. But in a really good way, right?
The office is 20' x 10' so it's got a nice long wall perfect for a mural.
I know ya'll think I'm really fancy, but I cannot afford De Gournay or Zuber wallpaper. So, on one hand I'm considering hand-painting the whole thing myself because I really really really really REALLY want this to happen. And on the other hand I'm like
(still not over it) One thing I know for sure is that if I do paint a grisaille mural, it will be on canvas that I will affix to the wall, because I will never ever part with it. I will be buried in it, mummy style. We could be talking a ridiculous number of hours of my life into this thing. So, I'll try doing one section and if it isn't horribly painful, I'll attempt to do all 30-ish feet (minus window and doors.)
Ok, now that I wrote it, it really does sound a little extreme.
