This ivy wall mural gave much needed life to my interior design studio walls. See the before and after.
My Interior Design Studio Before
Here’s the lonely blank wall, waiting for some inspiration to hit me. I have so many other walls in the house that will have a collage of frames that I didn’t want to do that here. So this 21 ft wall has looked like this for over a year.

It was finally time to liven it up with a green ivy wall mural.
I hired Terry Friesen and his son (who live in Abbotsford) to install the mural for me. They did a beautiful job!
When I called a paint store to get the referral she gave me 3 names and said Terry was her first recommendation. Since I have learned that you pretty much always get what you pay for (ugly costs the same as pretty), he was the first person I called. And I’m so happy I did.
Ivy Wall Mural
My wall of ivy looked so real! The next day I left the door open when I went for lunch. When I got back there were two birds flying back and forth in front of the mural! #nokidding
I felt so bad, I quietly tip-toed in and opened the second window so they could figure out how to fly out! I need to get some sheers installed ASAP.
Here’s the exterior view before.
And, here’s a view of it at night. So lush and green from the outside looking in.
I eventually added some curtains to my studio french doors. My backyard has been a work in progress. Tour my 2020 backyard tulip garden here.
I love the drama and feeling of nature right inside!
I consulted with a client recently who had a big blank wall right in front of her kitchen sink in an apartment. I suggested an ocean mural so it would feel like she was looking outside a window.
Do you have a blank wall that would look amazing with a mural?
