Trees

I've been wondering a while now about how I'm going to fill this wall above my TV:

I thought perhaps a couple of Lack shelves from Ikea in white, but what would I put on them? It'd be just another excuse to buy more things to collect dust...not that that's a bad thing - buying more things that is, dust sucks - it could be a good place to display prints or pictures, after all...Alternatively, I was thinking decals...more specifically, tree decals, so I've browsed etsy off and on looking for potential candidates.

This tree by kiskastyledecor was an early contender since it fills the wall, but not if I still want to somehow work shelves in.

This tall tree with leaves blowing in the wind in Dali Decals' shop is quite fantastic but it's too wide. I do love the movement suggested in the design though...

Which brings me to Single Stone Studios' oh-so-pretty Cherry Blossom Branch with Birds.

I can pick my own colours from this palette and have been pondering which two for the last few hours....given that I've used shades of brown, green, white/cream and purple throughout my suite, I was thinking the branches in brown and the birds in lime, olive or lilac given that this is what it looks like on the opposite wall:

What say you?

Wow.. I love your living room -- especially that white chair! it works so well with your couch! That chair is gorgeous.

As for trees - I agree. The brown tree with green leaves is great!

Great and creative. I really love the second tree with the movemnent of the leaves blowing away! I would be thrilled to have it in my dining room or any other room. It's really cool.

So, I've been in touch with Alicia at Dali Decals and the leaves are individually cut, so I think the second tree could work after all! Hmmm...
