    The tall shelf is definitely going to be gone. I think even something low would block off the area too much, especially if the desk is next to the window (where the shorter shelf is, but getting rid of that too). It will be a single floating shelf or nothing over there, I think.

    Debating on adding these floating shelves, as modeled by K...thoughts? Too much?

    I don’t think the floating shelves should go that close. Let it shine!

    This is what I’m leaning towards

    I really like it. Especially against that wall color.

    I love how even that small bit of seeing your home gives these awesome beach vibes.

    Thank you!! I appreciate that feedback so much. I know that the bright colors we painted the entire house in are not everyone’s cup of tea but it makes me very happy, so it’s always nice to hear that others like it too.

    Seconding FN's animal suggestions. I'm not overly familiar with desert climates but some other possibilities: burrowing owl, hawk, bighorn sheep, and apparently bobcats can live in the desert which E might be into.

    I can see where you're getting that, but I think it's just doing what rabbits do. I don't think the owl or deer necessarily look too woodland with the coyote and roadrunner.

    Maybe too different?

    I think the rabbit or horse(s) would work really well especially with the coyote and roadrunner.

    As for the painting, it is gorgeous! It would be an amazing focal point for the landscape wall. What do you mean by too thin though? Like I get the dimensions aren't what you want. Is part of the aesthetic the sizes and orientations of the art?

    Come on, people. I can’t believe none of you have suggested a jackalope yet.

    I don’t have a super eye for art but yeah, I feel it’s a bit of a different feel if it’s longer and thinner versus a thicker 16x20 or something. I’m just thinking if it with the mat and frame, since it will likely be on a wall by itself I don’t want it to feel incomplete.

    I’ve thought about how I could put the thinner landscape over the changing table instead of the blank wall but I like the animals over the changer since that’s more interesting for the kiddo to look at.
