Dressy drama

There’s nothing like luxurious marble to dress up a space. Why not take the traditional up a notch and make a statement? Part of the pleasure of installing a mural is the freedom to scale up smaller patterns until they are almost surreal – pushing the limits of both space and time. And remember, dark hues can help hide unsightly cables and other elements that are necessary but not nice to look at.

Historical harmony

Whether you are a fan of steampunk, or just have a soft spot for the machines of times gone by, a mural that features the dark, earthy tones of sepia photography will surely invite contemplation of the best of the past. Historical imagery makes a room warm and cozy, a perfect complement to a roaring fire or scented candle.

Timely texture

It’s no secret that texture is a major player in interior design for 2023. Floors, backsplashes and entire walls are expected to show off an appreciation for tactile sensations.

Whether you prefer the textures of the natural world or the more harsh metal textures of man made surfaces, a dark textured mural could invite the visceral reaction that brutalist architects relish. Embrace contrast when choosing a wallpaper mural and remember to make sure your furnishings complement your bold statement.

Deceptive depth

Geometric designs and optical illusions are perennial favourites when it comes to wall murals. But no need to turn to past masters or pale colours if you’re looking to add depth to a room. Dark, contemporary designs featuring plant foliage, building interiors and abstract forms can add a sense of space and keep you contemplating a ‘trick of the eye’ for hours.

Neoclassical niceties

A dark mural featuring neoclassical symmetry is sure to please anyone following 2023 interior decorating trends. To add a sense of grandeur to a room, turn to the forms and balance of antiquity, or take a page from the Renaissance, when artists were inspired to create balanced designs like the exquisite pattern featured above. Black and white murals go especially well with brightly coloured furniture.

Sombre space

Dark murals are not only for adults – teens and even children can find comfort in contemplating a dark-hued wall mural featuring the murky depths of the night sky. A striking dark space mural is not only a pleasure to look at, it can help reduce visible wear and tear on heavily-used walls and bring a sense of coherence to a room that might not have much personality.
