Minimalist murals

From Habitat plus - decorating and colour trends 2020

A painted wall mural instantly opens up a room – and your imagination.

Instead of covering an entire wall, why not define a special area with a little artistic flair? Paint direct onto your wall or furniture or take advantage of the flexible décor trend and paint onto a surface like foam board for a moveable mural to add style to a rental property or so you can move it room to room and take it when you move to a new address.
