When I was a kid, my dad painted a huge rainbow mural on my wall in my bedroom, and it was my favorite. When I was in my early 20s, I had a boyfriend who painted a hot pink Radiohead bear on my apartment wall. These hand-painted memories are fond ones, but recently, I’ve found myself pinning images of Jean Cocteau’s Villa Santo Sospir.
Jean Cocteau’s home is an artist’s paradise tucked away in the South of France. Completely hand-painted from top to bottom in ethereal scenes, it’s the ultimate tribute to French art.
I’ve rounded up a collection of other hand-painted walls I love. From easy DIYs to jaw-dropping quarantine projects, these artful walls are an interior delight.
French Artist Nathalie Lete is one of our absolute favorites here at Glitter Guide. She spent the past year hand-painting her home with the most delightful florals and nature-inspired art. Read our interview with Nathalie here.
Hopie Stockman, artist and owner of Block Shop Textiles, used quarantine to hand-paint her bathroom wall with animals and florals inspired by her favorite walls in Jaipur.
Bridget Beth Collins is one of my favorite IG accounts to follow for floral and creative inspiration. Earlier this year, she created the most whimsical scene on her dining room wall with watercolors for a temporary botanical look.
Artist Esmé Shaprio created a protective mural in her Brooklyn apartment to help her home feel like a safe space during quarantine.
My friend Christina Winkelmann infused a pop of color into her kitchen by adding a fun statement wall. All you need for this DIY is paint, tape, and a whole lot of patience.
This Victorian townhouse in London is one of my favorite homes of all time. I especially fell in love with these individually hand-painted bathroom wall tiles.
This hand-painted corner is the perfect eclectic accent in a cozy master bedroom.
This 115-year-old house was completely transformed with hand-painted walls in virtually every room. I love this entryway, which was inspired by the creator of the art hanging on the wall.
When an artist transforms their space with their own artwork, magic happens. Not only is this home filled with the owner’s original work, but she took her talent to the walls as well.
This DIY mural by Molly Madfis is an easy upgrade for a blank space. I love it in her playroom, but it would look equally as darling in a bedroom, living room or any other space in the house!
