I believe it is a Jenny Lind da Vinci crib

The dresser is refinished. We took an oak-veneered dresser and painted the outside white and switched out the knobs. More information on my blog:
http://www.a-lovely-life.com - just search for "Violet's nursery". Hope that helps!

No - I painted it by hand. Etsy has a lot of great tree decals though!

Prelude by Behr. I clicked on "more info" beneath the photo and a green tag appeared with the color name. A great Houzz feature!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Great Ideas for Girls' Nurseries
Wall decor can be a challenge in a space with angled walls. Here, a large mural is the perfect solution. More inspiration for kids' rooms: 15 Ideas for Your Baby's Nursery Kids' Rooms: I'm a Big Boy Now Get This Look: Colorful, Classy Nursery
Vanessa Brunner added this to Closer Look: Violet's Magical Nursery
This room is located at the top of Hufnagl's house. The sloping lines of the roof prevented her from hanging wall art, so she created a mural instead. After painting the walls a soft blue-gray, she drew the tree freehand, painted it with white latex paint, and added gray fabric leaves using liquid cornstarch as the adhesive. The dresser was a hand-me-down from one of her family members. Initially this piece was all oak. Hufnagl painted the outside white and replaced the knobs with chic metal-and-white pulls. The quirky metal owl on top was a gift from a co-worker and his wife. Wall color: Prelude by BehrSheets: White fitted crib sheets from TargetCrib skirt: Carousel DesignsCrib: Babies R Us
Natalie Myers added this to Nursery Essentials: What You Really Need
Let's start with the crib, the first thing on your list. I feel that a simple model such as the Jenny Lind is just right. You don't really need the convertible versions that change from a crib to a toddler bed to a full size bed. Most of them look awkward in their non-crib forms. They are more expensive than the basic crib models offered by Ikea, Land of Nod or Pottery Barn Kids or Craigslist. And, realistically, by the time your child is ready for their next stage of sleeping, you will probably be over the original style you chose. And it takes all the fun out of buying their "big boy/girl bed." Make sure that the model you pick is not on any recall list.See more of this nursery
Lauren Hufnagl didn't let a sloped wall stop her from creating something special on it. She painted this wonderful, wall-spanning tree in her daughter Violet's nursery.
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: The Ecofriendly Nursery
Ecofriendly WallsLow-VOC or zero-VOC paint is the best option for healthy walls. Read up on 5 great ecofriendly paint options here.If you live in an older home, it likely contains lead paint. Even if it is buried beneath layers of newer paint, you should still be careful when repainting or scraping off old paint. If you see any chipping paint, carefully sand and paint over it (have someone else do this if you are pregnant) and thoroughly clean the room, paying special attention to window sashes where paint chips tend to accumulate.Ecofriendly wallpaper? Yes, it does exist. While most wallpaper available today contains vinyl coatings as well as other harmful substances in the glues used to adhere the paper to the wall, several companies are producing lovely wallpapers without the yucky stuff. Try Kimberley Lewis for ecofriendly wallpapers made in Brooklyn, and Phillip Jeffries for natural-fiber and grass-cloth wallpapers.Nursery style note: Feeling crafty? Try your hand at a mural like this beautiful white tree. It eliminates the need for additional wall art and provides a sense of depth in a small room.
