Maybe you've noticed that excessive ornaments have gone out of fashion in recent years. Ascetic minimalism have dominated almost every kind of interior, from living rooms to coffee shops, restaurants and bathrooms. Nevertheless, there’s every indication that this trend is steadily fading – things that are ornamental, beautiful and intricate are once again in favor. Empty, white walls be gone! Let there be color and patterns! An ornamental mural will give you almost endless decorating opportunities with the use of patterns and colors. You'll find different kinds of ornament murals in this category: from toned down and subtle designs to vivid and eye-catching graphics. Which one will be your favorite? Perhaps this guide will come in handy when making the choice.
The word "ornament" comes from the Latin word ornare, which means to decorate. And this, in fact, is what defines an ornament: it’s something that decorates. It's that simple... but maybe there's beauty in simplicity. Look at all these decorations with double or even more complex functions. Compared to them, ornaments stand out with their directness: their role is to decorate and nothing more.
What follows, it may not come as a surprise if we say that our ornament murals are one of the most elaborate and decorative murals that you can find in our catalogue. Surely, even after a cursory look, you'll find that most of the time these murals have patterns which can humorously be called doodles – they are full of swirls which look organic but are not necessarily inspired by real plants. As a result, they're surprisingly universal and will look great in many types of interiors with different styles and characters. You can find some of the most interesting ideas on how to decorate a homely interior or an office down below – we hope that you discover something that will inspire you to experiment!
Semi-abstract patterns that can be found in most murals with ornamental prints go extremely well with other decorations. What exactly do we have in mind? Well, mostly that by choosing an ornament mural you can create interesting, layered compositions. Many paintings or posters will look great against an ornament mural, as long as they have a pattern that’s distinctive enough. It may sound complicated but let us explain: the point is that you can hang a different type of decoration on the wall decorated with the mural only if the color or pattern in that second decoration is vivid enough, so that it doesn't get overpowered by the mural. The effect is extremely interesting. Imagine for instance that you hang a black-and-white movie poster or a sepia-toned photo against a colorful, ornamental mural... It'll look absolutely gorgeous! However, make sure that you frame the decoration (no matter if it's a photo, poster, painting or something else) if you choose to decorate your interior in this way, so that the visual border between the two layers of the composition can be clearly seen. This idea is definitely for people who love vivid and eye-catching arrangements – it's bold but definitely worth trying out!
We've mentioned that ornament murals are vivid and eye-catching decorations, and now we want to convince you that they're a great idea for decorating office interiors, which generally should be kept at a certain level of cool professionalism. Why is that? Well, hear us out! First, not every ornament mural has to be extremely vivid. It doesn't even have to stand out! Many of our ornamental murals are characterized by subtle, delicate patterns and toned down, elegant colors. What's more important is that they lack a theme. They don't have a particular motif, which makes them a non-controversial, neutral type of decoration (it's an extremely important aspect that has to be taken into consideration when decorating an office – especially if you're going to meet clients or contractors there and not only employees).
Every parent knows that decorating a shared sibling room is one of the most difficult tasks! Ornamental murals can help you overcome this problem: it's worth choosing murals in cheerful colors that are suitable for a child's or a teenager's room. Some of the ornament murals can even be used as a page from a huge coloring book! Their additional advantage is that your child won't grow out of it as quickly as it usually happens with murals depicting adorable animals or characters from cartoons. As a result, you won't have to change the decor so often. It's because these murals slowly "grow" with your child and they don't look childish.
