Sometimes a wall asks for a subtle something-something, like this shimmery gold wildflower mural I painted in Sonia’s Milton, Ontario home.

Keep scrolling for more photos and to see why we should work together if you’d like a hand-painted mural, too!

Wildflower Mural That’s Customized

One benefit of having a hand-painted mural created is that it can be customized to fit your room perfectly.  Sonia’s daughter, Risha, wanted something girly but simple.  Something that wasn’t massive because she loved all the other décor she had in her room, too.

I painted a wildflower mural that fit perfectly over her bed and was subtle enough to not take away from the rest of her room.

Consultations Make the Design

I wouldn’t have known what Risha wanted for her room (or the space available to paint a mural) if we didn’t have an in-home consultation.  This is where we chat design, colours and size.

Gimme a shout if you’d like to book your consultation!

Non-Toxic Paint That’s Safe for Kids

Many of my clients only use eco-friendly products in their home to keep their kids safe and healthy.  That’s why I only use non-toxic acrylic paint and no-VOC latex paint for my murals.

Shimmery paint (whether gold, silver or coloured) is very sheer and goes on super transparent, so for Risha’s wildflower mural, I first painted the flowers in a dark mustard yellow using a non-toxic acrylic paint.  Then I painted over it with three coats of shimmery gold non-toxic acrylic paint.

Personalized Service

I’ve hired contractors to work on my own home in the past, and would get frustrated that they’d come and go and leave my house in upheaval while they “fit” other clients in around me.

That’s why I only book one mural client per week into my schedule.  That leaves me plenty of time to pivot if we decide to add more into the original design or if it just takes a bit longer to finish than I originally thought.

As Seen on TV

I’m the go-to-mural-girl for celebrity designers and TV personalities like Mike Holmes, Mike Holmes Jr., Sherry Holmes, Colin and Justin, Tracy Moore, Brian Gluckstein, Christian Dare and more!

I like to think it’s because I’m a super-detailed-perfectionist that always delivers a top notch mural.

I pride myself on offering this service to ALL my clients, not just on TV sets.
