I know this is the forum for nursery ideas, so maybe it's not the right place... We're moving at the end of the year when our house is finished being built, and I want to have the builder paint DS's room a color that matches whatever theme we choose. Then we don't have to bother repainting after we change our minds later!! He'll be 2 1/2 by the time we move, so I want to do something a little older for him. I'm thinking about this bedding set with the toddler bedding from BRU:

I'd like to do something creative with the walls but I'm hopeless at painting anything but a plain color. Any suggestions? Or does anyone have any ideas that are more fun than just buying a bedding set?

Thanks!

This is the perfect place for you!!! This is a place for decorating nurseries and children's bedrooms! Glad you found us

That toddler bedding is adorable, perfect for a little boy! There are also a ton of other boy toddler bedding ideas, Pottery Barn Kids has some great ones as well.

As for the walls, you could use a wallboarder, paint a mural, get wallies, hang up framed art work, etc. Paiting the walls two-tone with chair rail inbetween is a nice idea as well. You could also hang up shelves and wall pegs/hooks, which would take up some space on the wall to get rid of that "empty" feeling.

Id go with a plain color like the blue in the bedding so when he gets older you can still decorate his room. if you wanna decorate, id get the border that matches the bedding. Or maybe paint pics to match, or buy the accessories.

I agree especially if you're not 100% sure yet. A nice blue will go good in a boy's room for long time and then you can just change the accessories and decor if you change your mind.

But...if you're wanting to get creative...you could have the painters paint the walls blue, then do the bottom half green yourself like hills and then some clouds in the sky. That would leave it up for cars, planes, construction, whatever...

I really like this idea - we did something similar in dd's room - with blue sky and green grass then used stencils to add butterflies and frogs and flowers etc in the room

sassafras - can you post a picture? I think I'll be better off if I have something to show the builders. I'm ok with doing something a little "crazy" cuz we can always paint over it in a coupla years!!

If I were you I would paint the walls a solid color because that bedding set is quite busy already. I would pick out a color from the bedding, maybe the red or the green, and use that. Using the blue would be too overpowering.

If you want some variation, you could paint alternating walls - one wall red, one green, the next red, etc. Then you can get really creative with wall hangings.

I'm sure whatever you do will turn out great!
