The most popular baby nursery mural of all time is the “Tree Mural”. Trust me, I am a mural artist and I have hand painted all different types of trees in baby nurseries here in New York. You can see examples of my work here – www.surfaceswithpaint.com
But in spite of the tree being the number one request of clients, I love when artists get creative with their designs.
This first design was done by Octopus Tree Design and I love, love, love the color scheme. Who would ever think to paint the walls a deep olive green in a baby nursery? But boy does that tree stand out with the brown and different shades of pink in the leaves. Great use of color!
These next 2 mural designs I found on the Nursery Ideas and Inspiration Blog.
Love the silhouette look on this first one. Such a simple concept but has a great impact. And love the pop of color with the orange bird house added to the branch. Gives a great 3-D effect.
This one is more realistic and detailed. Great job with the bark. Goes nicely with the monochromatic colors in the furniture.
If you are looking for brighter colors, then how about this tree mural from www.roomzaar.com. The tree stretches across 2 walls and incorporates bright red, green, and blue leaves with cute little owls and birds. The white picket fence is a nice touch as well. Love how they tied in the bright colors into the furniture and crib bedding as well.
My favorite tree mural design is the flowering tree. These delicate blossoms bring so much life into this little girl’s nursery. Check out the shading in the branches. This one was done by artist Kris Garard who is featured on Find a Muralist.
I hope that these photos can give you some inspiration. As a mural painter, I often search on Google for ideas and implement things into my own designs. You can definitely do the same.
And if you are not quite sure about what mural to go with, how about starting with picking out the crib for the room? Here are some fabulous baby cribs for you to check out:
