White walls are not necessarily boring, or at least not boring for British artist Charlotte Mann who creates intricate murals on white walls, turning bland space into impressive masterpieces. Using a special water-based non-toxic marker called the Posca marker pen, she creates incredibly meticulous wall murals that turn empty spaces into funky cluttered rooms. Her work consists of 1:1 scale drawings on walls. Even if Charlotte’s works never extend beyond the wall itself, they fill up an empty room better than a pile of furniture, and sometimes replace windows with a view. So if you want to redecorate your plain white wall, instead of repainting and put some wall paper, why not consider Charlotte’s idea? Of course, it isn’t easy to create intricate works of art like these. But it is definitely a unique way to decorate your home. Click here to find out about Charlotte Mann.
