Wallpaper tree mural

Spring is on it’s way and I’ve been thinking about tree murals and decorating children’s rooms and nurseries with a tree theme.

I’ve found some lovely ideas that might inspire you to do the same for your child room.
The theme is gentle and timeless. Depending on the style you choose, the look could be equally at home in a baby nursery as a child’s room.

Firstly the wall decor and of course murals in partcular

Your choices are to hire a mural artist to paint a mural for you
or
Stick on tree themed decals or wall stickers
or
Paint one yourself using a paint by number kit or tree stencil kit

and then there’s ideas for other tree themed elements that you could incorporate around the room to tie the theme together.

Tree themed Baby nursery

This nature-themed nursery was created for a client in Southern California, and features floor-to-ceiling custom items. The real tree branches, mingled with the tree and bird decals, are truly a spectacle!

Over the changing table, tree branch hooks carry cute little buckets to put all those bits and pieces needed for changing nappies (wipes, diapers, etc…).

Tree decals combined with real branches suspended from the ceiling create a place to hang little pictures and toys above the crib.

Make a rustic tree curtain pole

I found this image on In Home Design

There doesn’t seem to be any instructions on how to make this so here are my suggestions.

How to Do it

Go for a walk in the country side and find yourself a lovely stick.
Make sure it is the correct width for your window plus some extra either side of the window.
Try and find a stick that is quite dry.
Paint the stick with an undercoat and then spray or paint it any colour you wish.
Use an acrylic paint intended for woodwork.
Purchase two curtain pole brackets that come in various shapes and forms.
Like this one below for example.

Attach the brackets to the wall add your painted branch and all that’s left to do it attach your curtain.

Please note that because the branch may be twisted and ‘branchy’ you will might find that tie on curtains like the one in the picture above will be easier to install.
These curtains are better left open as a decorative feature rather than a functional curtain.
A blind on the actual window would be advisable to use in conjunction with the curtains.

Et Voila!

Tree Themed Shelves

I think this is charming and simple. I found it at Live Wire Farm .
If you are a bit handy I don’t think it would be difficult to recreate the same idea.

How to Do it

Find two appropriately shaped branches.
Cut the back of each one flat so that they can be screwed flat against a wall.
Make sure that the tops are cut flat too so that your shelf can rest flat on the top.
Buy or find, or cut a shelf the length and depth you require
Mark where the supports touch the shelf and screw a couple of screws downwards into the branch brackets to keep it in place
Et voila!

Some more rustic shelf ideas to compliment the tree theme. I spotted this one on Design Sponge.
There are some instructions there too.

I found this coat rack idea on The little things we do
Hang pretty flowery bags on the hooks to store toys or other bits and pieces, or simply hang coats on it!

Tree themed Beds

Slightly out of most of our budgets ;-) but it’s so lovely I couldn’t resist it You can find this at Atilladesign on Etsy

This is fun I found it at Raphael D’Amato

DIY Tree themed Beds

When I look at these beds, I think that with a little bit of thought you could make something similar.

What’s to stop you screwing some lovely branches like the ones above to an existing bed to turn it into a tree themed four poster bed?

Or how about a canopy above the bed substituting the pole for a tree branch?

This post is becoming too long!!
The more I research the more ideas I find, so I’ll stop here and do some separate posts on tree themed bedding, rugs and soft furnishings ideas.

    Did you ever do those other posts you mentioned at the end, about tree-themed rugs, bedding, soft furnishings, etc. I’d be interested in seeing them if you did, and a search of your site for “tree themed” or “tree” only brings up this post.
