2021 Project Highlights: A Beautiful Life Begins At HomeAll Things Mural / By Susan Harter Inspiring Interiors A Beautiful Life Begins at Home As we roll in year three of this pandemic, what a bright spot it’s been to see all of the lovely, inspiring rooms our clients have created with the help of our murals. I’ve always been a firm believer in the power of pretty. The darker the world outside becomes, the more we need the joy of beautiful things.What an inspiration to see our clients making their homes into havens of peace and comfort these last two years. I see it as a deep act of faith in the future, in ourselves, and in each other. An appreciation of beauty is, to me, not a flourish on life, but life’s very foundation.I once read that when female textile workers went on strike for above-subsistence wages, back in Victorian New England, they paced the streets crying, “Give us bread, but give us roses.” All of us long not just for survival, but for the beauty and civilization that make life so well worth living. I thank all of our clients for showing us their determination to build gorgeous spaces, in faith that we will soon gather in them again together, and laugh and eat together and sing once more.Here are some of our favorites from the past year: Dining Room Mural for Joshua Pickering Featured in Luxe Magazine Our Barringtons Cool mural lines the tall walls, punctuated by apricot curtains, a dripping crystal chandelier, and his own custom rug design. Joshua Pickering walks a divine line between classical and unexpected in this elegant Dallas dining room. Imagine creating memories with loved ones with this as the backdrop!
