This tree was hand painted. However there are many decals you can purchase that would produce a similar look. Try looking on amazon's website - type in "tree decal". Many options should be available. Good Luck!

Hi Alicia, I painted my daughter's room very similar to this, but now I am having a hard time finding bedding that goes with the soft blue and green. Any suggestions? Thanks :)

That is a DARNED cute bed! As long as you have pillows to accent, I don't think it will be too white-- you can also use a soft green or blue flat sheet to break it up, ( and pillowcases) or a rug with the accent colors would tie it together as well. Check out Garnet Hill - they have some terrific rugs and bedding- I've attached an image of cute polka-dot sheets that would work, as well as some adorable pillow ideas from Etsy- one is fun, the other is a little more sophisticated but has the colors as well as bringing in a bit of yellow.

Let me know what you think!

There's a website you can order wall prints from to project on walls, as described above. I've seen it done in a boy's room with an airplane on wall above the bed. I know his dad is not an artist so I was surprised how well he painted it.

I purchased these shelves from Target and painted them brown to match the trunk color...I think they also came in white. Good Luck with your project!

If you're looking for a great blue that makes a nice "sky" background for a mural, or just a lovely shade in a room, try Ben Moore's Summer Shower/2135-60 or Sherwin's Hinting Blue/6519. Both have the right amount of gray undertone.

The color is Ben Moore's "under the big top" #1675. It reads slightly more blue in person then what the image shows..

What are the dimensions of the shelves that you used for the tree mural?
   Comment   January 16, 2012

What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Houzzers loved the adorable wall mural with built-in shelving in this space. Often, it can be a challenge to design a kids room with a theme that doesn't feel cheesy or over the top. While this design is simple, it's still playful and bright enough to cheer up a child's playroom.
8. Branch out. Any space can be decorated with wall art. Get creative! Here a tree is painted on the wall, and the branches are actually shelves. What a simple way to create functional and cute wall art.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 7 Tips to Create a Snuggly Attic Nursery
7. Pick furnishings to interact with the murals. Take your murals a step further and your space will really come to life. In this nursery, the designer incorporated shelves that seem to grow from the tree branches. Brown suggests suspending wood planks from ropes secured to the ceiling for nightstands, shelves or fun seating.
Get creative with a wall mural. This clever tree incorporates bookshelves on two walls.
