I used contact paper to cut out branches and applied them to the wall.

I actually found this duvet at TJ Max. But I combined it with other elements to add color

For the headboard fabric, did you finish the edges on the fabric samples?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to 11 Ways to Remake a Room With Fabric
Bored with your headboard? Update it by covering it with a variety of fabric samples. In this example, the designer attached the samples with decorative tacks.
Laura Fenton added this to Pattern Scout: Cozy Up to Patchwork
Blogger and mom Cherie Marcel found herself with a surplus of discontinued high-end fabric after working in a design shop. Rather than scrap the pieces, she turned them into a patchwork wall hanging to act as a headboard for her bed.
Be UnexpectedHere's another option for spicing up your headboard. Hang art over a portion of the headboard and add a little DIY art to the wall behind. These two additions keep things visually interesting and unpredictable.
Use remnants for a unique patchwork design. Creative decorator Cherie Marcel didn't let her fabric samples go to waste; instead, she used them to fashion a fabulous headboard.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Headboard Alternatives to Make a Dull Bed Divine
If you like crazy quilts, you will love this. Although you could accomplish a headboard treatment like this with a quilt, these are actually fabric samples that have been collected and inventively mounted to create a colorful, welcoming anchor for this bed. Critical to the success of the design is the unexpected piece of art integrated into the composition. The trio of ruffly throw pillows restates the color story while adding more texture and variety.
