Last year, I painted a wall mural in my brother's room. We, my brother and I, decided to go with a black cityscape against the freshly painted snow blue walls. He gave me full rein as to which buildings to paint, as long as I included the Eiffel Tower. So, I decided to paint real and make-believe buildings that either held importance for the family or were his favorite places.
|This corner of this wall is dedicated to the (make believe) "family-owned" businesses, including Farri's Kitchen, Arif Suites, and A.B. Computers. There is also a ferris wheel to complete the French theme.|
|The far left corner of the wall has some of my brother's favorite places to be including the Hershey's Factory, Costco, and a Ferrari showroom. He asked me to include a bank because his little city was missing one.|
Practically every time someone first sees this mural, I get these questions.
1) Did you use a black marker to draw that?? Nope, I used black paint and a paint brush.
2) Why is there a plane flying directly towards the tower?! No, no, it's not like that! The paper airplane symbolizes my brother's dream to travel the world, France being one of his planned stops.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Leave a comment below letting me know where in the world you would like to travel to.
P.s. Look forward to a post about gorgeous zebra-inspired cakes soon!
