Portland ApartmentModern Dining Room, Portland

This project was simply furnishing the front room of a small Portland apartment. The apartment is north-facing so we chose a soft yellow for the ceiling to bring in a feeling of warmth and sunlight. The walls are a pale grey, and both colors find their way into the layers of Emily’s abstracted land and sea scape mural.

    I love the mural. Is this something created by the owner, or does it come ready-made?

    I looks odd with the plastic chairs though. I am sure there are matching chairs.

    JHID designer Emily Knudsen designed and painted the mural behind the dining table.

    7. Create a mural. What do you see when you look at this wall? A sweep of sandy beach? A wash of ocean blue? Just a few lines of color can result in a fun visual effect and bring life and interest to a flat surface. If you want something that looks like a large-scale piece of art on a shoestring budget, try getting creative with your paint application. This design could be replicated relatively easily with some planning, a roll of painters tape, a selection of sample-size paints and a dollop of patience. If in doubt, ask a professional decorator to help you.

    Mountain-scape. You may not be an expert painter, but you too can create a modernist mountain-scape like this with just some tape and basic paint supplies. By painting in layers and taping off zigzagging lines, you can give the subtle impression of a mountain vista and mix in different nature-inspired shades for the effect of a dramatic mural without the intricate brushwork.
