I don’t know why I like grisaille wall murals with bucolic country scenes but I do.
I would love to have a dining room or bedroom with one of these idyllic countryside landscapes rambling across the walls. I like the idea of art covering an entire wall!
Smash cut to reality – I live in a tiny cottage in the Hollwyood Hills…so small that there is probably only enough room to squeeze 1/2 of a tree from one of these wallpaper scenes.
I can still dream. 🙂 So today I bring you pastoral wall murals in the form of wallpaper and panels … that’s today’s CHEAP TO CHIC!

I like. What do you think? Too busy? Or are these wall murals just the right touch?
P.S. Still without a computer…my sis DS is putting pressure on for me to return her Macbook Air. Dell people say they are coming by to fix my laptop next week. How long do you think I can keep my sis at bay?
P.P.S. Will do my market review next week when my computer is up and running. 🙂

Swooning over these!!!!!!
I wish I had the moolah to commission someone to to paint any of these on my wall. But hey, you know what Biggie Smalls said…..”The mo’ money, the mo’ problems”. Ha!!!!!!!!!
Honestly, these rooms are beautiful, thanks for posting!
Find your scene – hire an art student and have them ‘pencil it in’ on your chosen wall – taking into consideration any changes you would like to make to it in advance. Once you’ve reviewed to ensure it meets your specifications, let them complete. If you don’t like – paint over it!
This makes the process very affordable. It will also provide that long-contemplated answer to the question ‘Where would you really like to live?’ Answer – ‘In the mural on my Dining Room wall…’
Beautiful photos – thank you for sharing!
I love all of these rooms, especially the grey and white bedroom! Very inspired!
I think what makes them so lovely is that they are so soft and soothing in color and therefore don’t intrude on the rest of the room and its decor. I love them.
I like the last room and the Italian scene paper. I really like these types of wallpapers when it is of exotic locations – if I got one it would have to have palm trees and an elephant in it somewhere!
Hope they can fix your computer.
I have to say they are not for me, a bit too busy but thank you for sharing, its refreshing to see some different wallpaper!
I think the murals are fabulous. They add glamour to each space. Of course, I am partial to the pricier one!
Love this resurgence – and the selections you have shown here are beautiful.
I’m a traditional lady, so I love the murals! That dining room is absolutely stunning, and the monochromatic scene is such an updated way to do the mural.
