I was walking through the Presidio in San Francisco and on my route was The Lodge, a hotel in the middle of the historic property. When I entered, I spied a giant ocean wall mural of the Pacific Ocean in the hotel dining room.
Landscape murals make a fantastic focal point that tell a story or create a mood. They bring a destination or travel vibe to any space.
Tropical or botanical murals started trending a few years ago, recently the landscape mural are resurging in popularity, especially the trompe l’oeil style (French for “fools the eye”) with old world pastoral scenes and panoramas.
The landscape mural has its history in centuries old painted murals from Europe. These murals always suit traditional interiors and hotels.
