You would be surprised to hear how many people have talked to us about a weird wall in their home that they had given up on because it was, well, weird.
But we have turned the strangest walls into spectacular murals. All it takes is a little imagination, and you might just be surprised at what works for a nice nautical chart mural location these days.
Will Berson is a great example. His wall of choice is a trapezoid. Yep, you remember the trapezoid from your geometry class. But Will wanted a mural showing off his cool location on the New Jersey Shore. And he wanted it positioned so that the window in the middle of the wall didn't cut into his favorite areas. The picture above is what we did for him.
And what about stairwells? Not a typical rectangular wall, but they make for some of the most interesting murals. They aren't the easiest to design, but let us help you and the results will look marvelous.
The key to a good stairway mural is realizing that your focal point will change as you ascend (or descend) the stairs. And if you are comfortably seated in the room, viewing the stairs, the view should be interesting as well.
Another very common "weird wall" is the wall with a sloping ceiling line. In a room with such a ceiling, your eyes tend to drift upwards with the line of the ceiling. This natural eye-path can actually work well when composing the layout if your mural has a similar eye-path. But for most walls, the focal point should be about five feet above the floor to match the location of the eyes of most people who walk into the room.
We have done a number of ceiling murals lately, and some of them have unusual shapes such as this octagonal, recessed ceiling.
