Une autre façon de faire une déclaration audacieuse sur vos murs est d’y accrocher un miroir élégant. Grand ou petit, rond, carré ou rectangulaire, rustique ou glamour : il y a un miroir pour tous les goûts. Présentés au-dessus d’une table console dans un hall d’entrée, comme alternative à la pharmacie dans la salle d'eau ou au-dessus d'un foyer, les miroirs sont une façon élégante et pratique d’habiller un mur.
The Mexican mural movement in the 1930s brought a new prominence to murals as a social and political tool. Diego Rivera, José Orozco and David Siqueiros were the most famous artists of the movement. Between 1932 and 1940, Rivera also painted murals in San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City. In 1933, he completed a famous series of twenty-seven fresco panels entitled Detroit Industry on the walls of an inner court at the Detroit Institute of Arts. During the McCarthyism of the 1950s, a large sign was placed in the courtyard defending the artistic merit of the murals while attacking his politics as "detestable."

Warli painting is an ancient Indian art form in which the tribal people used to depict different phases of their life on the walls of their mud houses.
