mural walls - would you have one in your home?

Mural walls were big in the 80s, depicting scenes of Paris and the like. We loved them at the time, but now, well, they've but all been painted over for the most part. And that's because, like any design trend, it comes, it's hot, then it fades. And statement trends like murals can fade quickly.

So would you consider a mural now again?  It's hot and oh so different then it's predecessor! See below for some examples, and for a quote on something really spectacular, check out Deziner Wallz.

breaking the rules with area rugs

In case you didn't know, there are rules for rug sizes. But then of course, I say all rules are meant to be broken, so something like this illustration doesn't mean everything to me. I do abide by these rules often as they do work, but see below for some amazing examples of what some have done to break these rules.
