Exterior Decorating with Murals Idea #1
Many flats and condos in large cities have enclosed spaces off the back that are just large enough for a small cottage garden. This space is a great candidate for an exterior mural. Extend the cottage garden in the city with an exterior mural that opens to an open pasture. This will create the illusion of space beyond the confines of the back patio.
