Kelly’s House of Murals

Kelly’s House of Murals

Kelly grew up in a house decorated with her mother’s hand-painted murals. Today, in her Del Ray home, she’s continuing the tradition. I stopped by to see these special murals painted by Kelly’s mother (you may remember this house from the Del Ray House & Garden Tour this year, or the previous tour in 2014).

There’s a splendid mural of blue sky and clouds on the ceiling of the front porch.

The other two murals are in the two kids’ rooms. This one pays homage to a children’s book author and illustrator that Kelly loved as a child, Gyo Fujikawa.

Kelly’s mom added Superwoman, one of her daughter’s favorite super heroes, into the design.

Kelly’s son’s room has been transformed into a scene from outer space, complete with flying spaceships. I can only imagine how much he and his sister love their rooms and will grow to appreciate their grandmother’s artistic talent all their lives.
