el Favorito

When my friend told me she was going to paint her daughter's room lavender and said she wanted me to paint a red tree, I thought she was a little cri-zay.
Turns out, it's a wonderful, funk-a-licious combination and my new favorite mural.

I had painted a white tree in little Clara's room before and it was one of my first real murals. Henry was just a baby and he stayed on the bed while I painted. He couldn't even roll yet!
Since there were so many sentimental feelings towards that sweet white tree, I basically painted the same things again in red and added some new, fun touches.

And here it is!
Seriously, how fun is this room? What a lucky little (almost) 5 yr old little girl with her funky decorating momma.

Funky, and maybe a little creepy, owl.


Peacock!





Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday!

I love it! I've never been a fan of purple but it's growing on me lately. The peacok is my fav! I have totally been messing with making a peacok in my mind lately too! The tree you made is totally gorgeous...so whimsical!
