Tree Murals and Wall Decals

Product Information

Do you have a wall in your home that is not simply painted or wallpapered or hung with an artwork, but has a mural on it?

I recently enjoyed Centsational Girl’s tree mural on her young daughter’s bedroom wall. A tree is not just a beautiful object, but also very versatile. With a few paper crafts, I can imagine the wall art being turned into a cherry tree in Spring, a maple tree in Autumn, a Christmas-sy tree in Winter…you get the picture πŸ™‚

The Tree Makes the View

For me, trees are God’s work of art. I have yet to see a tree that I didn’t like! I don’t think there is such a thing as an ugly tree.

My watercolor of a view of Mt. Fuji

I painted the scene above, a quick watercolor sketch of a view of Mt. Fuji. The mountain by itself would have looked fine, but you can see how much less interesting the composition would be without the tree in the foreground.

The Beauty of Trees on the Wall

If we had our way, I think many of us would love to have expansive glass walls with unhindered views of a breathtaking forest or garden. That’s because nature’s colors soothe not just the eyes, but also the spirit.

When we can’t take the indoors out, we try to take the outdoors in. Here are some rooms with beautiful trompe l’oile trees.

The mural was created by Paint A Lifestyle. What gorgeous fall colors! I wouldn’t mind at all seeing this beautiful work of art year round.

Instead of painting a group of trees, a single tree with flower or leaf accents works just as wonderfully.

This elegant dining room in Sacramento, California was designed by Peg Berens Interior Design. The walls of the room are curved and the window is small; what could be more perfect than a tree mural?

Berens says on Houzz: “[T]ree is amazing, isn’t it? Believe it or not, the entire wall is wallpapered. This covering is by an English company called Fromental. The paper is actually hand painted silk. The tree is painted on the paper and the flower buds are embroidered silk in custom selected thread colors. They appear to glow! This product is quite pricey, but you could achieve a similar look by painting a mural on a faux finished wall.”

Get the Look

For those of us who can’t paint our wall or purchase bespoke hand-painted silk wallcoverings, a great option would be to use a wall decal. I found some lovely wall decals trees at Wallspirit:

I love the wide array of choices! There is a whole range of colors to choose from, so if you want an orange tree with brown leaves you can have that. The direction of the branches can also be reversed. Those feeling glamorous can include a few Swarovski crystals to their set. From Wallspirit:

These wall tattoos adhere to almost all surfaces. They are ideal for fine, medium grain, and smooth wallpapers as well as for tiles, glass, wood, smooth plaster and plastic. No special expertise is needed to apply these inexpensive adhesive wall motifs or texts and remove them as needed without leaving any traces.

Please ensure that any dust or dirt is removed from the surface. Freshly painted walls should dry for at least 10 days before applying a wall design. You can use a piece of transparent tape to test if your surface is suitable for a wall design. If you are still unsure, you can request a free test motif before placing your order.

By adding our own cutout flowers or fruits and other accessories we can easily customize these designs.

Oh, and for those who want a botanical design that’s not a life-like tree, there are other options. This bamboo decal’s one of my favorites πŸ™‚
