Here is the video for a summary of the post below:

Referring to a bunch of images found all over Google and Pinterest, we put together this fun mural for our friend’s baby’s room. The design is to be gender neutral and fits the child from a baby’s age till he’s older.

We proposed a soothing warm-greyish-green for the feature wall and a grey-ish cream for the other three walls because they are pleasant, soothing colours for a bedroom and not gender baised. We also sketched out the possible current and future versatility of this layout above: Where the baby cot and future bed can be placed, as well as nursing table / desk area.

Oh yeah, we also added Casper, the house owner’s dog into the Calvin & Hobbes mural to add a personal touch for the family in the kid’s room. Here are a few views of the finished piece:

The left wall is a measurement wall for the kid. Wonder if he’ll exceed that height!

  1. I noticed that you are painting straight on to the wall as if you were not having the some sort of sketches before that. Am I seeing it right? or do you actually make some sketching on the wall first before you put the paint? You get what I mean? …

    Great work there with the colours and cartoons!!!

    1. Hi!! Thank you for your comment. Yes, get it, I do a rough outline sketch on the wall first before painting. Thanks for dropping by!!
