4 Vintage Industrial Style Wall Charts

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 by

Whether you live in an industrial conversion or simply want to channel a heritage aesthetic, original wall murals can be an impressive way to entirely transform a space without renovating. From brick walls to entire roomscapes, the latest photorealistic designs can transport you to a different time and place. But if space, or creative courage, is a little more limited, a vintage look is just as readily achievable with carefully chosen prints and charts. You’ll want to save these papers.
