Our master bathroom renovation project was coming up soon, so I spent a few nights trying to put together my plan for that room. After looking at hundreds of photos of master bathrooms to narrow down what I really wanted for that room, I decided I wanted to start our bathroom design by finding one that was inspired by nature. mural or wallpaper to use as a jumping point for resting the room.
I imagine putting up an amazing nature -inspired wallal wall or wallpaper on an empty wall. As a refreshment, this is what the bathroom layout looks like…
That wall was 12.5 feet wide, 8 feet high, and had a window in the middle. And as you know, I love nature-inspired designs that specifically include trees, flowers, and / or birds. I also love designs that are reminiscent of geodes and natural stone, and almost anything will look like watercolor.
So after searching through hundreds of designs, I chose my favorites of fifteen murals and wallpapers. Most of it is from a specific website, but I don’t have any kind of business relationship with that store. They just make thousands of options, and I love that you can make as many and size their wall murals as any size you need to fit your wall. You won’t get that option if you buy wall murals from places like Overstock and Wayfair.
However, I started with maybe 60 options I had saved, and narrowed it down to fifteen.
Peach Blossom Floral Wall Mural
This mural has trees, flowers, and looks in watercolor. Plus, the colors definitely fit my style. The only problem is that it’s a one-size-fits-all option, and just shy of the width I need. I’m not sure if I can do this work.
The pattern of this (unnecessary colors) class reminds me of natural stone.
This is a mural I’ve attached that doesn’t need to be inspired by nature, even if it’s kind of reminding me of a geode. But it’s an alcohol ink paint, which is also one of my favorite things.
I really like it, but it can be a bit abstract for my taste. I included it, though, because the colors are perfect for my taste.
It’s one of my absolute favorites, but if I’m honest, I didn’t know I was using it in a master bathroom. It reminds me of the wallpaper that is in my studio, and while Matt has always said that he doesn’t care what the master bathroom looks like, I can push it into it.
Once again, I was fascinated by the watercolor look of this mural. Plus, these are my colors.
This one seems different for me as far as colors go (even if there’s some teal and aqua in there), but it’s actually one of my absolute favorites.
This makes my top fifteen because it’s less feminine, but I also get there my nature-inspired elements, and there’s also blush pink here But the black background keeps it from getting too frilly.
But I got this one, and it’s all floral, all femininity, and all fast.
I also added some flowers to the black background in my last fifteen. It seems like no small character to me (because I usually like bright flowers and white backgrounds), but I think these black backgrounds can be a good jump for a good mixing femininity / masculinity in a bathroom. Matt didn’t ask for that, and he didn’t expect it, but I think it looks weird.
This is another flower on a black background that I need to add because I love frilly soft pink flowers.
And this is the third and final flower with a black background that I added. While these flowers are not my favorite (I prefer the tall one), I like that this background is gray and black.
And then there’s this one. It gives everything — trees, flowers, birds, lots of color, and a watercolor — visible in the background.
It’s one of two wallpapers I’ve included in my last fifteen, because… peacocks.
And finally, this wallpaper that I originally considered for the guest bedroom accent wall made it to my last fifteen for the master bathroom. Again, I like the black background, and I like the colors of the flowers in this wallpaper.
So that’s my last fifteen murals and wallpapers I’ve considered for the master bathroom. And I can’t stress it out, but Matt seriously doesn’t care what I do there. We’re not just one of those “design together, decorate together” couple, and I have to say I like that. 😀 Every time we move into a new house, Matt will give me the keys and say, “Cheers! Do what you want! ”And the better it is that this is what he really meant.
She always told me, “As long as you don’t paint the walls pink,” then she’s okay with anything I do. But when I started talking to him about the master bathroom, he said, “Do whatever you want! If you like pink walls, paint the walls pink! ”(FYI, I haven’t said pink walls yet, and I’ve never considered it.) And every time I ask him about a wallpaper, mural, or other bathroom design element, he would respond, “Kristi, do you know what I’m going to do there? I don’t look at the walls. ”
All that being said that while the arrangement of the interior was designed with that in mind, and the design of the vanity constructed to be available to him, I also had elements there that were specific to me, starting with a mural on the wall that inspired by nature.
But after narrowing down these options, I also considered using wall mural (or wallpaper) in different areas of the bathroom. I don’t like the idea of choosing a weird design, just use it on a wall taken with a tall vanity, a window, and two large mirrors. So instead, I thought of using it in the bathtub alcove. I think that’s weird to look at!
