I think the giraffe pattern on the wall is cool.. but I think I would get tired of it REALLY fast. I like the color combo though.. the green and brown.

I don't love it, but I don't hate it.

I think it looks really dark, but I think that is more lighting than the actual colours. If you go with that theme just make sure you have better lighting in there!
I love the green & brown combo though!

I also like the color combination a lot. I don't know if I like the giraffe pattern - dark colors are really tough to use in smaller rooms - but overall it's not bad.

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

Nay, I don't like the brown color on so much space and I think the giraffe pattern would be impossible to get it to look right.

I think it's kinda fun, but you gotta REALLY like giraffe print to wanna see that much of it during 3 am feedings.
Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

I agree with the others, the color isn't bad, but I wouldn't do a whole giraffe wall like that. Maybe a border around the top or middle with the giraffe pattern.

Jungle is a cute theme.

Although not something I would pick out, it's cute. I think something that brings it down is how dark it makes the whole room. I would paint the window trim white, plus the entire "giraffe wall" should be many shades lighter, IMO. The tan should be way lighter and the brown should be tan. I think that would 'baby it up' a lot and also make the whole room brighter. It would look like a different room. Yet the theme is the same the cute giraffe pattern wall is still there.

not really for me, but mostly because it's just such a dark color scheme...I prefer bright happy colors for baby (or me lol)
