the flower and the wall

by Grace Bonney

Wall murals have never been my go-to for decorating, but they’re slowly starting to grow on me. If I’m lucky enough to have children in my home one day, I plan on hiring Jen Corace to create a full ceiling-to-floor mural of woodland animals and children. To me, her work has always been the perfect ratio of slightly creepy to downright beautiful. But until that day, I’m going to keep slowly warming up to murals for adults, thanks to work like this from Yvonne at in Glasgow. Yvonne created this hand-painted mural to mimic the feel of wallpaper and incorporated perfect pops of gold-leaf gilding. I rarely see a spot of metallic I don’t love, so this unique design moved up toward the top of my list pretty quickly. Yvonne is still building her portfolio, but you can see more of her work and her about commissions . xo, grace
