Some of you have asked for a post about Panoramic, Scenic Wallpaper Murals.
Last week we looked at affordable Chinoiserie wallpaper panels which can also be wall murals.
But today’s murals depict scenery. Panoramic scenes. And, these could be somewhere exotic/tropical, or located in an Arcadian setting in Europe, the U.S. Or, something the artist made up.
Quite a while back, there were these two posts where we looked at some expensive hand-painted panoramic wall murals.
One is this post about Grisaille wallpapers.
Grisaille, if you don’t already know are tone-on-tone designs rendered in gray or sepia. Sometimes, some color is added to parts of the image.
Above is a dining room by Rebecca Brandon (she does not have a website to link to) with one of my favorite Grisaille scenic wall murals by De Gournay.
This panoramic wallpaper is credited to YR Mural. That is another source for hand-painted Chinoiserie papers. They have been around for quite a while. It is evident that they are taking designs from the other big companies like De Gournay, Paul Montgomery and Zuber. I don’t know how they get away with doing that. Maybe they have changed the designs just enough. Not sure.
And, I don’t know how much these papers are, but if anyone has ordered from YR Mural and can share their experience, that would be terrific!
Below is a printed scenic wallpaper mural found on Etsy
Tropical Rainforest Wallpaper, Vintage Grey – Florawallpaper – Etsy. To be clear, all of the papers from Etsy are printed and a LOT less money than anything hand-painted. Many of these also come in a removable version. But some also require traditional installation.
Florawallpaper is a new source with a lot of beautiful scenic wallpaper murals and many others– And great reviews.
Switching things up, I want to revisit fabulous Paul Montgomery. In addition to his beautiful Chinoiserie designs, he also does some equally exquisite panoramic, scenic wallpaper murals.
And, the reason that I’m including the expensive stuff is because Paul has recreated via Mural Sources many of his hand-painted designs. This is the super high-quality printed version that we discussed last week. And printed like my bedroom is. For example, check out the detail below.
This is a detail from Mural Sources. Yes, this is a print! And as great as it looks here, I can assure you that up close it is even more magnificent! Please notice the design is identical to the hand-painted version, above. This part of the design is towards the bottom left.
Another Paul Montgomery scenic mural in this traditional dining room.
Jefferson County from Mural Sources. Again, this is a print! Extraordinary!
This is one of my favorites from Paul Montgomery, entitled Dixie and hand-painted.
And, yes. It is also available at Mural Sources. (below)
This is an excerpt from the large wall mural (Dixie) from Mural Sources. You can get samples of these murals which I highly recommend. I promise that your eyes will be popping out of your head when you get them.
Now, I want to share some more printed scenic wallpaper murals I found on Etsy. These are quite affordable and there are dozens of beautiful murals in differing styles. And also a few new sources!
ChinoiserieWallDeco -scenic affordable wallpaper murals. This one is grisaille-ish, but it comes in other colorways.
Please forgive the hideous bed.
And, a wallpaper with a water color effect – from Coordonne – Lotus – Aloe colorway – from Wallpaper Direct.
Another really great source is MakeupWallDecor on Etsy. They have dozens of gorgeous scenic wallpaper murals.
Okay, and to finish off, a very special treat.
Some of you may know of the phenomenally talented muralist, Susan Harter.
She has taken the Arcadian style and loosened it up in a most fetching painterly way.
Susan does hand-paint her murals, but many of them also come in a printed version. The samples you can get are only $8.00 I don’t know how much her printed murals are, however. They can be customized, as well, especially color-wise.
Above is a Susan Harter grisaille mural done for a showhouse.
Well, I hope that you enjoyed these panoramic, (mostly) affordable scenic wallpaper murals.
