I work with a lot of new homeowners who hire me to select paint colors and wall treatments. Usually, we are just switching up colors to suit the new owners’ tastes. Sometimes we’re trying to get rid of dated wallpaper, faux finishes, or wood paneling. And sometimes, if we are lucky, we uncover awesome surprises in the form of murals. One of those times was this morning at an early color consultation meeting.
Here are two murals that I can’t resist sharing. I’ll withhold telling you whether or not we covered them up…to each her own.
The first comes from a bedroom in a house that is, inexplicably, not near the White Flint metro station. If the scale is not clear, let me clarify: it was pretty large. 10 points for a realistic ceiling depiction.
The second is a stunningly accurate depiction of the Beatles in their Yellow Submarine period. It is AMAZING.
I have to say that the people who commissioned these must have been fun loving and artistic people. They certainly make my job more interesting.
