Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.

Classic Pick: This moody treetop mural by Anthropologie has the detailed, artisanal look of a precise drypoint etching. It gives depth to a room, and suits the elaborate contours of antique furnishings.

Fresh Spin: The scale of this customizable adhesive wall mural is blown up and exaggerated. This painterly floral design’s softly blurred watercolor hues and fluid lines make it a good fit for contemporary spaces. Learn how to apply this mural on H&H TV.
