hi ladies. this is crossposted here and my ddc.
i could use some advice on painting our nursery. colors and designs and what not.
p.s. it's a girl and she's due nov 15th!
here is the background DEFINITE info!
this is what the room looks like now. we just painted it "buttercream yellow."
this is the door and walk-in closet
left side of wall
right side of wall
here's the furniture we are using. it's all ordered but not in yet=)
undecided on glider still =)
here's the bedding set we are using which is also ordered but not in yet!
okay, now obviously we did the room yellow which is what we want our main color to be as far as paint goes. what i'm having trouble with is our accent colors and shapes.
originally, i wanted to do the yellow wall with a pink stripe about 40" up the wall with different colored and sized circles inside the stripe. kind of like this:
similar to that but with different colored circles inside the stripe.
then i thought, whoa, i am handpainting this it is gonna take WAY too much time and way too much work. and frankly, i don't think i have the patience. also, if we ever change the bedding the circles won't really make sense.
so i came up with another idea. keep the yellow wall, do a pink double border about 40" up the wall all the way around the room and instead of circles just do vertical stripes within the border. i thought maybe it would be a good contrast to the circles in the bedding. i wouldn't actually paint in squares, i would just do vertical lines going down of different colors. kind of like this:
now, i'm thinking this will take a lot of time too so i'm wondering if i should just go simple.
keep the yellow walls, and just do a thick pink stripe about 40" up the wall all the way around the room. like this:
then i could focus more on accents and go crazy with my lettering.
here is what my lettering looks like plain:
i plan to paint these with crazy circles all over them and stuff. i have stencils and quarts of paint with the accent colors of the bedding. the dark pink (which we'll use for the stripe on the wall), light pink, muave, and green.)
what do you ladies think i should do?
got any new ideas for me?
i'm open to almost anything, as long as it isn't TOO time consuming and doesn't involve me buying anymore supplies! we are going broke! lol.
