When Elizabeth and Derek Hopkins moved into their home in Mission in 2018, it was mostly gray and neutral. It wasn’t until lockdown that Elizabeth decided their home needed more vibrancy. Having earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting, Elizabeth put her knowledge of color blocking and color theory to create large, mid-century inspired murals throughout the house. “It started as the circle on the wall, and then after that, I wanted to redo my dining room because I didn’t want it to be as boho. I wanted to move toward bright, colorful and happy,” Elizabeth says. Now, she and her mom, who is also a skilled painter, are teaming up to create eclectic, retro-inspired wall murals in the homes of their friends and family. The two hope to start a business together, and Elizabeth is currently taking inquiries through her Instagram, @bohoinkc. Elizabeth’s murals vary in cost depending on complexity and size, but her small-scale designs start at around $200.
