Cool Stuff: Surface View Murals

Got a big, blank wall you're not sure what to do with? Murals from the UK's Surface View will turn that bland swath of wall into something truly breathtaking.

The company transforms images -- everything from great works of art in London's Victoria & Albert Museum to photography to vintage postcards -- into stunning, semi-custom murals that go up up like wallpaper.

Simply browse the dozens of images in Surface View's four collections (V&A, Land of the Lost, Photographic, and Ephemera, each with several sub-sets) and choose the one you like best. You can preview each mural in a variety of settings, from work spaces to bedrooms to dining areas to entryways. (As you can see from all the images included here, I got a little carried away playing with the fun preview tool.)

Next, select a matte, satin, gloss, or linen finish. Finally, enter the dimensions of the wall you're covering to get an image that's cropped and sized perfectly for it.

The murals aren't cheap, mind you -- one that covers a wall measuring 10 by 8 feet will run you about 560 pounds sterling, or roughly $1,120. But, boy, do these have impact.

I love both the murals and the furniture. It makes me want to buy a bigger house to incorporate one into my decor.
