Large Scale Wall Art from Photowall

One of the most frequently asked questions I field is: Where did you get your large scale wall art?  And I love answering this question – because I love talking about our massive paintings:

Large Scale Wall Art

Hubby’s grandpa painted most of our art (find the full art tour here), but I’m always looking for ideas for you to get your own large scale wall art.  I’ve shared blog posts before, with curated lists of sources for large scale art alongside tutorials for how to make your own, but today I’m sharing a new-to-me source with possibly the most budget-friendly idea yet!  Photowall is a great source not only for affordable canvas prints, but also beautiful artwork turned into murals.  Installed on a wall like wallpaper (which Photowall also sells), these murals can give the effect of large scale wall art – but for a price that is much easier on the wallet!  Plus you can customize sizes to your exact dimensions and even crop designs if you desire.  I wanted to test Photowall for myself, so I ordered canvas prints and wallpaper samples – I plan to install one of their murals in my office (keep reading to help me choose one).

With the help of Photowall, I freshened up the artwork in my Mom’s space – starting with her dining room.  You might remember the chic makeover we gave this space a few years ago.  Not much has changed since then.  We did shuffle some rugs around, so now this space has a more neutral cream colored wool rug.  We also added the track for artwork – the beauty of this system was supposed to be that we could change the art as often as we wanted without having to poke new holes in the beautiful wallpaper (the art hangs on clear cords from a track mounted close to the ceiling).  But after I hung one of my own aerial photos of a frozen Lake Superior, I never changed it.  It was definitely time for a refresh!

So this weekend I swapped out the photo I took of the ice covered lake, for this gorgeous piece called Swan in the Lake.  I feel like it completely changed the vibe of the space – for the better.  It’s more summery, for starters, with a perfect, serene vibe!  I chose it because it looks like it could have been photographed on our bay.  Plus it ties together the beautiful green silk curtains we sewed with the soft sky blue ceiling.  The rooms feels so cohesive and a little more special now.

The canvas was securely packaged and shipped quickly with no issues.  I ordered the largest size: 39.4 x 27.6 inches.

You can also order this – and a seemingly endless choice of other pieces – as a mural, for a bigger and bolder impact:

Speaking of murals, when I spotted this Heron Fresco wall mural, pictured below, I frantically ran around my house trying to find an empty wall large enough to accommodate it.

Unfortunately, my walls are filled but this piece was too pretty to resist, so I ordered a small (17.7 x 23.6 inch) canvas print.  I originally ordered it for my bunkie bathroom, but my Mom liked it so much, layered on her blue fireplace, that she won’t let me take it home…  I really have to stop having my packages shipped there, lol.

If you’ve been searching for a way to get the look of large scale wall art, check out Photowall.  You’ll find everything from stunning photos to abstract paintings, available as canvas prints or murals.  To really make a mural really look like art, I suggest ordering the mural smaller than your wall and then “framing” it with pretty trim.  Photowall even sells the wallpaper paste required (in a powdered format) along with a kit to make it super easy.  I’m going to try both and let you know how it goes!

I am planning to wallpaper the space above my slatted walls with a mural from Photowall and I have it narrowed down to two, so I’d love your help choosing!  Let me know in the comments which one you prefer.  These are the two options:

Option 1: Up and Away – Light Blue

Clouds Wall Mural

Option 2: Watercolor Green

Here’s a reminder of what the space looks like right now:
