cool tiled black-and-white wall mural / wallpaper

Recently we posted about services that sell wall murals —both readymade and custom of your own photograph or design — to transform a room.  The usual approach is to hang one big mural of an image or design on a wall.

We’re smitten with this iteration from Milan-based Studiopepe. The image is a graphic black-and-white photograph, in itself a beautiful touch. It is tiled, that is, the many parts of a huge image appear to have been printed on heavy, slightly warpy paper to make individual tiles (do-able on a printer) that are then composed on a wall. Or else  a clever mural was made and cut to look like tiles. It reminds us of the beautiful tacked-up wallpaper we posted ages ago.

There’s something about it being monochrome and not perfectly smooth that makes us feel like we’re in a beautiful old photograph.
