Serious Drama

by on February 28, 2013

There is nothing cooler, in my humble opinion, than large scale images. I love the idea of blowing up art or photographs and turning them into wallpaper. It’s bold and dramatic and makes a statement in any room.

Supersized images fill the walls of England’s Glemham Hall. 18th and 19th century portraits of Baroness de Rothchild, Madame de Pompadour, and other nobles burst out of their frames and into the present.

Another way to create this bold statement is with wall decals. This jumbo goldfish makes a splash in this dining room. Isn’t this just spectacular?

Want to create a custom mural or wallpaper? Then check out,  You supply the art, they create the wall image for you. I totally love this! Just think of all the possiblities…photos, digital art, words, portraits….let your imagination run free.


Playing with scale isn’t just for real life drama. Try it out in your next digi piece. It’s amazing how scaling elements up or down can suddenly change the entire feeling, place and world of your piece.
