🏠Marvellous wall mural transformation

We interview Cherry, from @cherry_at_home on her recent bedroom transformation using a wallpaper mural to completely overhaul a neutral bedroom into a tropical oasis!

Read the interview below, which covers what mural she used, her design style and advice and tips on doing this transformation yourself!

About Cherry

“I’m a 30-something solo buyer trying to create my own cosy home. I’ve taken someone else’s neural space and am slowing adding colour, pattern and lots of plants!”

What inspired your decision for the mural?

“I painted the guest room in a simple neutral (a mistake though I liked the colour!) when I first moved in, in 2020 suddenly I was spending all my time in the room as it also became my home office. I’ve wanted to redecorate for a while and had my eye on wallpapering the whole room. When Hovia got in touch, I was instantly drawn to the Redoute mural and the impact it would create in the room; it also contains my key colours – pink, mustard & teal.” 

Cherry’s interior style

“I love lots of different styles and my taste changes based on the style, setting and age of a property. Typically it will involve colour & clashing patterns – I’m not a coordinated person!”

Before & after

“It was a cold room and very simple, now it looks warmer and cosier but also bigger.”

Where is the wallpaper from?

Hovia – they have a wonderful selection of wallpapers and murals. I was really lucky that they were happy to work with me on a mural to run around the whole room rather than a feature wall.”

What tools did you need to do the walls?

“A tape measure and (large) spirit level to find your straight drops (even a relatively new building doesn’t have straight walls!), a large brush to paste the walls, a wallpaper brush to smooth out any bubbles as you hang the paper.”

How long did it take?

“I’m lucky that my mum is a good decorator and helped me – it took her about 4 days but I’m sure someone more experienced could do it quicker.”

What advice can you offer someone looking to have a wall mural in their bedroom?

“The mural is scaled to fit your walls so remember it won’t look exactly like the sample you have. Be confident in your choice and don’t shy away from a bold design – trust your gut!”

What interior trends are you loving at the moment?

“Stripes – they never go out of fashion, maximalism, bold kitchens!”
