Tired of staring at the same four walls yet? As any design lover knows, the power of paint is unparalleled when it comes to transforming a space. That’s what makes wall murals so great: They’re a fun way to add a splash of color and personalize even the dreariest of rentals. For proof, inspiration, and a little laughter, you can turn to the artistic masterpieces of @verygaypaint.

Based in Los Angeles, Nicholas Scheppard and Jenson Titus run a wall mural painting business via their Instagram account. This hilarious and talented duo is taking the wall mural trend by storm with their masterfully painted designs that can serve as serious inspo for onlookers. It’s amazing how creative they get with bold patterns, geometric shapes, and wild color combinations—the possibilities are truly endless.

Wall murals can range in pattern, style, and color combination, as @verygaypaint show in their feed. Take this makeshift headboard above, for example, that is simple yet striking in a room that follows a similar palette.

Opposite of that, there’s colorful wall art like this one that reflects a moody landscape to bring the outdoors in.

If you’re short on wall space, Scheppard and Titus prove that you can still join the fun and work with paintable surfaces like doorways, kitchen cabinets, and bathroom medicine cabinet walls.

If the idea of freehand painting anything on your wall sounds intimidating, color-blocking is a good place to start and can be done easily with some painter’s tape.

Simple geometric shapes can make even the dingiest corners of any apartment almost unrecognizable. Think circles, semi-circles, triangles, and stripes to add a pop of color or create an accent wall.

If you’re lucky enough to live in the Los Angeles area, you can commission @verygaypaint to work their magic in your home or work space—just DM your inquiry on Instagram. And if you’re here just for the inspiration, there’s plenty of it.
