Must Make: Hand drawn Wallpaper

I've been seeing this trend of hand drawn walls pop up here and there and I love it! It's super low cost, totally custom and has a huge impact.  The artist has to either be very talented or very patient - or perhaps a bit of both.  Despite my lack of drawing talents, but I am going to attempt it somewhere with the idea the imperfections will make it more interesting (and I can always paint over it if it all goes horribly wrong!)

1. Ace Hotel Room by Timothy Goodman via inthralld
2. DIY version by Permanently Disco
3. Incredibly detailed hallway by Charlotte Mann

The idea is hardly new (hello, its the poor man's Trompe-l'œil) but in this form its a lot more fun! Considering I still love chalkboard walls and hand sketched everything so its no surprise I adore this - you could even say I'm drawn to it. Ha!

Have you tried something like this in  your own home? Please share! I'd love to see!


  1. I can't wait to see what you do! You are always so clever!

  2. I have been wanting to try something like this! I figured I would wait until we have kids so I can utilize this technique in the baby nursery. It sounds like a fun (if not tedious) project.

  3. This is stunning! I also lack the drawing talents needed to pull this off. I did learn to draw furniture and interior perspectives in college but I'm not sure that expensive degree would help me in any shape or form. I think this would look great behind my bed.

    I think I'll let you tackle it first though lol.

  4. I love hand drawn stuff! Especially in black and white. I immediately thought of this when I saw your images:
    Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  5. I love that first one!

  6. have you seen the wall Alisa Burke did in her home? if not, and check her blog-very cool.


There is nothing that thrills me more than hearing from readers. Please share your thoughts. ♥
