Rainforest Jungle Room

Rainforest Jungle Room

This is a bedroom for  an eight year old boy.  He loves rainforest jungle animals--you can see he has a beautiful tiger picture on the wall in the "before" photo below, but he wanted more animals and a jungle to surround them.  


I began this project by searching the internet for good photos of rainforest jungle plants and animals.  I asked my client (client's son) what animals he wanted for his room mural.  He said he wanted a sloth!  Cool.  I wouldn't have guessed that.  Other animals he wanted:  snake, tiger, toucan, lizard, frog, lemur, monkey and a couple flying birds.


In this photo (below), you can see the very beginning phase of the mural set-up.   After an initial base coat on all the walls, I block out sky and foreground areas.  In this room, I painted a sky also, so the ceiling is light blue with clouds. 

Then I added the basic plant and tree shapes.  In a rainforest mural, the more green plants the better.  I added more layers of leaves and leafy shapes.  I wanted the sky to show through, as it gave a feel of openness in this very full jungle room.

Then it was just a matter of adding more detail and more animals.  Here are more photos of the original room and the same walls after the mural was complete.  

Below is the wall with two windows that face the street.  Here is where the bed is placed.

 A full room (four walls and ceiling) jungle mural like this one takes approximately 9-10 days to complete.  This is an example of a higher end mural, as it takes longer to complete and has a lot of realistically painted animals.  A room like this will cost in the ballpark of $1500.  Factors effecting this price include whether the ceiling ("sky") is painted, whether the trim is painted, how many animals desired and finally, the size of the room.  The impact and beauty of this mural will make a lasting impression for years to come.

Lisa did this room for my son. I was so impressed with how beautiful it turned out and how quickly she completed it. It is truly a joy to look at every time I'm in his room. I would highly recommend Lisa and her work.

I love the rainforest scene. If only my kids were not so big now I would fly you out to Colorado to do their rooms! Love your "grownup" work too. You do amazing work Lisa.
