nursery.

last week, i painted a tree in a nursery that is going to be for boy/girl twins! they are due around february, and i can't wait to see this room after it's completed - my client has some great decor in the works. i liked her unique color palette of cream/minty green/chocolate - a nice, different palette, and great for a gender neutral space.

here it is before:

and, after:

i thought it would be great to play up the high, interesting ceiling lines, and try and use up some of all of that space! i like how the tree is on both the wall, and the slanted ceiling.


my client asked for the multi colored leaves (boy leaves and girl leaves, if you ask me :) ) , and the little monkey. we both liked his little belly!

    Aww that monkey is cute! My husband and I are huge fans of older houses with different shaped walls like that. I love the tree! (of course I'm totally jealous - I'll paint one some day!)

  6. The tree is beautiful! I'm sure the babies will love to look at the tree, the leaves, the monkey, the birds. So much for little eyes to feast on!

  9. Wow, love the color combination to BITS!!! The tree makes the room, so awesome. My favorite thing is how you used the weird corner angles.
