This room was designed by Mary McDonald of Bravo's TV show "Million Dollar Decorators". It's her own office and is pictured in a book I own by her entitled "Mary McDonald Interiors - The Allure of Style", which can be purchased on Amazon. She says in the book that the branches are not a decal but were painted by an artist named Jefferson Miles. For the person who asked, she says she found the desk in a shop in Palm Springs but so many clients wanted it that she now makes reproductions of it.

I'm surprised you would post a picture of a room you didn't do. That's completely unfair to Mary McDonald and misleading to the people who see it on Houzz.

where did you find that amazing desk?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Taking a page from Charlotte Moss's gallery look, this cool blue room combines great art organization with little feminine touches. I like, though, the way the black and white of the artwork balances the more feminine aspects of the design.
I adore this feminine display that's a bit more classic vintage than true boho chic. From the curvature of the desk chair to the vintage photo display to the unique pair of lamps on the desk, this look combines several different older pieces that would each be stellar pieces on their own. The light blue theme brings it all together so it looks fresh and modern. To make this truly boho chic, however, we'd need to add more texture to the space with additional fabrics and layers but this would be a good start.

Duck egg blue sets off the Academic's favourite black and white scheme nicely.

This is some sort of black and white Hollywood glam family tree arrangement
Kit Pollard added this to 15 Popular Design Trends on Houzz
2. Galleries. If I had to pick one trend that seems most pervasive, it would be arranging art on a gallery-style wall. In the top set of photos, images like this are everywhere.

The lamps are a great example of just a touch of Chinoiserie...

A wall of framed pictures in my study. Premade frames from art store. Instead of matting, place print on top of art (acid-free) paper from art store. Use double sided tape to secure print to paper, leaving a little more border at bottom of print. Family photos, children's artwork, pictures from calendars, etc.
