It’s no surprise that two of our nature-inspired designs made it on to the calming murals shortlist. Both drawing inspiration from the natural elegance, serenity and colours of plants and trees, the murals bring a freshness to a wall and in turn, encourage you to leave stress at the door. The large scale photographic leaves of the Rubber mural are a lush, deep, captivating green and the white space around the mural brings calmness and airiness that will generally make rooms feel bigger, lighter and more inviting… especially when placed behind your bathtub. Silkwood, on the other hand, captures a naturally occurring ombre effect, from the deep blues at the foot of the trees to the vast, open bright sky at the top of the mural. The photographic forest murals are one of the best options if you’re thinking of a calming wallpaper for bedrooms, as you feel you’re sleeping beneath the stillness of the canopy.
We couldn’t talk about stress-busting wallpapers without including the oh-so-calming watercolour wall murals. The fluidity, the depth of tone and imperfectly perfect shapes created by the ink and the water coming together allows any onlooker to drift off and get lost in exploring the details within the design. If you’re looking for a calming bedroom wallpaper, look no further than the Flow mural. With its mesmerising blue tones diluted with soft tidal whites, you can almost hear the ocean as you head to bed each evening. Continuing with the blue theme, the Dana mural celebrates the drama of watercolour, with a mark that almost resembles the eye of a storm, so sit back and relax as the watercolour waves wash around you.
The healing and calming effect of crystals is widely acknowledged around the world by many cultures and with the Celeste mural, it is easy to see why. The humbling grandeur and intricacy of the crystal formations make it hard to be distracted by anything else. Added to a turquoise themed bedroom, this mural really shines and is undoubtedly one of our most popular calming wallpapers. We also wanted to give a shout out to the calming power of our ombre murals by including Rust Ombre in our round-up. Calming wallpaper for bedrooms doesn’t always have to be a serene blue, as seen here with a soothing, cosy terracotta hue that resembles a warm haze, reminiscent of holiday heat. Sink into a deep sleep surrounded by the soft rusty shades and breathe out the stresses of the day.
