The Peanut Room (i.e. Max's Kingdom) aka Where the Wild Things Are Murals

So all the furniture came yesterday (even in the snow). Very exciting. ;-) I think things actually look a bit better in person vs. in the pictures since I can't seem to quite get a good angle to include everything, but you can get an idea of what our "Where the Wild Things Are" nursery room is looking like.
Here's the changing table / dresser. The little dragon guy in the corner actually hangs up on a wall, but we're not sure where he goes yet, that's why he's all slumped over there. The curtains have leaves sewn on to match the lamps that I made all forest-y. And the flying dragon guy was a Christmas present to me from Tony.
Here are the closet doors. We put some puffy wallables on them (Max, Moishe, Emil, and Tzippy) that we'd found on the Internet. They are 3D and soft.
Here's the crib (currently sans mattress). There's room next to it for the glider/rocker and a small table for mommy's water (or martini, as Tony mentioned). Just kidding, mom.
So here's the corner showing the other light, the chair, and part of the armoire. I imagine peanut will be getting most of his meals here. I do need to find a little stool for the chair. The one that you could order with it was way too high. I just need a little tiny one. You can't really see it in this picture, but I made a little round leaf topper for the table by the chair so it would match the other stuff.
And here's the armoire. And our current outsize dilemma. The big giant leaf. We got it from Ikea ages and ages ago for the nursery but until we just put it together we had no idea exactly how big it was. We'd thought it was 1/3 the size it actually is. It is kinda cool though. So we haven't actually attached it to the wall yet. We're debating about whether or not it goes in the room. If it doesn't, I'll find a place for it in the basement in my craft-y room (once it is built).

So if you have an opinion, please share. Should the big giant leaf stay or go? If it goes, I'll probably make a shelf to put up there with some leaves hanging off of it for the stuffed Wild Things to go. Any comments welcome. :-)
