Colorful Home Zoom Backgrounds for Virtual Meetings
Are you like me and video conferencing on Zoom a lot? Now that we are all working and socializing from home, it’s astounding how quickly the clutter takes over… and let’s be real: no one wants to see the messy bed or dirty dishes behind you. Pearl and Maude has you covered with these free, colorful home Zoom backgrounds for more inspirational meetings! I created six designs so you can have meetings from a different stylish room in “your house” nearly every day. I also created a range of moods because some meetings are all Wes Anderson, some meetings need a boss attitude, and some meetings are a bottle of wine with girlfriends. So inject some personality and magic into your video-conferences with these pretty virtual backgrounds. After all, we could each use a little fun, upbeat decadence these days. Don’t cha’ think?

New wallpaper coming soon with Colorado Street Bridge Painting by Teale Hatheway
These looks were created with Pearl and Maude wallpaper designs and some include paintings by yours truly (Teale Hatheway). I included mirror images, so if you are OCD like me, you can choose the image that best matches the direction of your natural light. Keep an eye out for the animated videos you can use on Zoom too! (These are my first attempts at cobbling together gifs. So squint a little when you look at them. Heh.)

How to use virtual backgrounds on Zoom: simply download and save the images from this post. In Zoom, click on the “up arrow” next to the “stop video” icon in the lower left. Click on “choose virtual background” or “+” to add the background image or video or your choice. (Pro tip: It works best with a plain *real life* background.)
