Here is a wall that commands some attention! Exuberant palatial romance combined with a hint of Versailles nostalgia, bordered by the finest drapery. It’s true that some murals need a bit of space, and this is definitely one of those, but look how easy it would be to place the furniture – all it requires is a bit of symmetry. It would be absolutely dreamy behind an inviting bed.
