Dress Up a Drab Room With a Personal Mural

(NewsUSA) - From vacation souvenirs and knickknacks to family photographs, nothing makes your house feel more like your home than personal mementos. Imagine a room where a treasured family photo is the focal point -- splashed larger than life across the walls.

Whether it's your child's finger-painting masterpiece or a candid shot snapped on the beach, it's now possible to turn those memories into murals. Murals Your Way, owned by the Hopkins,

Minn.-based Environmental Graphics, can turn personal photographs into wall murals.

"Murals are a hot trend right now," said Jackie Just, public relations director for Environmental Graphics, adding that the company's mural business has more than doubled in the past year.

Murals Your Way has created custom murals for clients of all different backgrounds. Several golf scenes have been used as backdrops for in-home putting greens and professional golf shops alike.

The owner of Four Generations Pizza, a small pizza shop, used black-and-white family photos of the generations in murals on the walls all around his shop. In another creative twist on personalized decor, a photo of 5-year-old quadruplets posed in front of the Magic Kingdom at Disney World was turned into a mural for their playroom.
