I just ordered my crib and I just wanted to share my nursery theme ideas so I could maybe get some tips about the paint colors.

This is my crib ... ... I found the matching espresso changing table but it was currently out of stock, and hopefully I'll be able to find a espresso dresser for a decent price otherwise would it look weird if I had a white dresser??

I'm wanting to use a moon, star type theme because I'm not finding out the sex so I need something gender neutral.... I'm thinking one of these three..





I think my favorite one is the middle one, what do you think?? What about paint colors I'm not really sure? I know I want two colors for sure. Oh preferably something not yellow either..

Here's an example of a dark crib with a white dresser. If done with the right colors, the combination is striking.


You could also buy an unfinished dresser (usually cheaper) and then stain it to match the crib if you are unable to find a matching dresser in your budget range with that finish.

As for paint colors, for the middle set, you could use lighter versions of the green and purple in the blanket or use two of the colors from the wooden stars on the wall. You could also pull the sage or the light blue from the last quilt as your wall colors instead of the yellow.

The middle one is my favorite too. I would look at the lime green color in it for paint color.

I love the 2nd set.

I totally agree with the PP that the white and espresso will look amazing if done with the right colours. The walls I think could be a green colour.

judging by the pic Cocao posted, I think it would look just fine!

I also agree on a green paint for the walls if you dont want to do yellow.

And I like the last bedding set the best. I just like all the colors.
