Working with 14' ceilings, Tyler Karu and Landing Design created a mural of an 18th Century map of the coast of Maine sourced through the Library of Congress. It is a one-of-a-kind element unique to this room and makes it the statement of the space.
To create a unique space for the homeowners' little boy, designers anchored the space in a bright blue wall color and mural that depicts a map of the world. Then, they added a navy bed frame to add contrast in the space. Finally, they added colorful pillows and the occupant's prized possessions-a statue and a guitar-to give the space a personalized touch to the room.
Behind the headboard, a mural of an 18th Century map of the coast of Maine sourced through the Library of Congress acts as the focal point for this bedroom design.
The space is actually quite small in footprint, but has so much volume from the high ceilings. Addressing the headboard wall in a unique and dramatic way seemed to be the only way to fully design the room.
Aerial survey maps were painstakingly pieced together to create an original mural wall. It took three days for the installer to match up the maps for one continuous span of the West Coast across two walls.
This travel-inspired kids' bedroom features wall-to-wall map murals, including artwork on the tray ceiling, an over-the-top airplane bed where the "pilot" can board his or her bed via built-in steps, and a cozy, cushioned daybed with underseat storage and extra pillows for comfort.
