This lil pirate is 6 weeks old. Two walls had a pirate scene with cannonballs being launched and two walls had a treasure map. NYC always has interesting spaces to work with. I camouflaged the closet and made it part of the mural. Visually it enlarged the room. The furniture included the crib, changing table and a bookcase.
His parents!! I think they were pirates in a past life. They had wonderful ideas and really let me play with my own creativity. I've painted children's rooms in model homes for many years. This is a theme I'm very familiar with. Plus, I have a 3yr old nephew who thinks he's a pirate! Arggg!
modern to traditional - It really depends on the theme and the fabrics.
I always try to personalize my murals. The families really connect to that. There are many details added to this mural to personalize it. Including a banner with his name, a Pittsburgh Pirate, an island with the family name and a special bottle of wine.
The 2 walls were painted Sherwin Williams Iceberg blue. It helps to have a base color.
