Jimi Tribute wall mural at magic murals

Jerry Blank's electrifying wall mural pays tribute to one of the greatest guitarists of all time and singer-songwriter Jimi Hendrix. 

Trendsetting guitarist James Hendrix who was considered one of the most influential musicians of his time is especially remembered for his performances at the 1969 Woodstock Festival and Monterey Pop Festival. Blank's extraordinary mural is a pictorial depiction of the award-winning Rock & Roll musician and his musical journey over the few short years that he experienced mainstream exposure. 

The painting is sure to take fans on a trip down musical memory lane to Seattle born Hendrix's path-breaking albums, ‘You are Experienced’, ‘Axis:Bold as Love’ and beyond. Blank, in his effort to honor the brilliant musician behind ‘Hey Joe’ and other unforgettable pieces, infuses his own admiration and interpretation for Hendrix’s work by blending his distinctive collage treatment with graffiti style art in this one-of-a-kind wallpaper mural. 

Joplin Tribute wall mural at magic murals

This wall mural from Jerry Blank’s The Art of Music collection paints a visual tribute to singer, song-writer and composer Janis Joplin who left a lasting and powerful impact on the world of American music during the course of her short life. The famously rebellious singer from Port Arthur, Texas shot to fame in the 60’s as the lead singer of then popular psychedelic rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company. She later held her own with the bluesy backup group she formed, namely the Kozmic Blues Band and the the Canadian rock band she headed - Full Tilt Boogie Band. Through her relatively short musical journey, she left an undeniable stamp of originality on every album and track she was a part of. He refusal to conform differentiated her as a peerless singer and artist. She is remembered for her performances at the Monterey Pop Festival, the Woodstock festival and the Festival Express train tour. But, most of all, Janis Joplin is remembered for not being afraid to experiment and living her life and making music on her own terms. It is this spirit and colorful personality that Blank captures with the use of bold strokes, vibrant shades and a tiled background effect in his Janis Joplin wall mural.

In the Seventies disco was king! The sideburns of John Travolta made young girls hearts beating faster. Bell-bottom jeans were hot and the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street was still allowed to eat Cookies. Are you ready for a trip down Memory Lane?

The design of the 1970s was distinguished by a strong confluence of creativity and functionalism in furnishing and decor. We already recognize many '70s furniture designs as icons of mid-century modernism-and the proof is the prices they command at fine furniture auctions today. Bony examines the works of international designers whose creations exemplify this period, from the ergonomically-focused designers working in America to the pure design movement in Scandinavia and design innovators in Italy led by Archizoom, Alchymia, and Gaetano Pesce. This indispensable reference book chronicles the period's interior design trends with over 200 photographs focusing on artistic and decorative innovations that created the first intelligent and informed design conversation between two continents.

Retro Wallpaper - 70s Circle Wallpaper yellow brown - Mural Square wallpaper wall mural

A staggering collection of 1970s fashion faux pas, from torso-clinging disco shirts to billowing bell bottoms. Mothers in hot pants, dads in leisure suits, children subjected to cruel knitting experiments… The 1970s brought us many things—some remembered fondly, others with a collective wince. But the true horror of the 70s lies in the many and various crimes against style. Whatever the cause, an almost universal lack of restraint, coupled with a dearth of taste, led to some of the most ghastly and regrettable styles in fashion history. Most people have, of course, set fire to any photographic evidence of their grimmest fashion errors, so the author has had to search far and wide to track down some of the crotch-mangling, buttock-hugging, polyester numbers you find here. So sit back and enjoy this homage to fashion's darkest hour.

Mid-century modern furniture refuses to fade into the obscurity of the past

In recent years, mid-20th-century modern furniture, ceramics, glass, and textiles have become hugely popular among people who appreciate the stylish contribution that these pieces make to today's home.

Modern Retro will inspire you to create a look that combines classics by such visionaries as the Eameses, Bertoia, and Aalto with thrift-store finds and the best contemporary design.

Combining the clean, unadorned lines of the International Modernists with organic and geometric forms, the Catalina Collection is suggestive of the works of America’s Mid-Century Modern designers. All pieces are crafted in solid American black walnut or maple hardwood. 

Add a little contemporary glamour with a touch of retro lighting. 
Modern Retro is not about slavishly recreating a period feel - but instead taking the best designs of the 1920s through the 1970s and use them throughout your home in a relaxed and individual way. 

Past and present can sit stylishly together - allowing you to make the most of the gloriously eclectic forms, colors, and patterns available.

Crazy mix of patterns, shapes and colors with a twist of quirkiness

The clean, cool lines of modern architecture was a direct rebuttal to the neoclassical styles that came before. Rooms flowed into one another and often included floor-to-ceiling glass walls to open the house to the natural world. "The new structures placed emphasis on efficiency and function, as well as informality and comfort," says author Lisa Skolnik. Inside, bold, spare furnishings like low-slung sofas and ovoid glass coffee tables were arranged with minimum clutter and often featured built-in furniture to keep the space open and airy. Clocks, lamps, and glassware took on asymmetrical and free-form shapes; most popularly, kidneys, amoebas, and boomerangs. That lime-green Egg chair of grandma's - which you thought hideous as a child - would now be snapped up in a second by a savvy collector.

Living Retro style 

retro - yet modern with a splash of rainbow color

representing all things Mid-century Modern - a.k.a. super hot right now - this colorful planter not only looks terrific out on the patio or deck, but also inside. It's perfect for holding magazines and whatnot in any living space, or place it on a shelf for a little flair on its own.

The conical bowl shape is how this planter originally got its name in the 1950s, as it resembles a little bullet or space ship ready for take-off. Back then fiberglass had burst onto the scene in decor products and just about everything else, so this planter, in true homage to its predecessor, is crafted of fiberglass, too, in a wide range of colors. You'll love it - and you'll love a few of them even more. Consider a trio in different colors! Super swanky.

In the Seventies disco was king! The sideburns of John Travolta made young girls hearts beating faster. Bell-bottom jeans were hot and the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street was still allowed to eat Cookies.
