my son is 11 months old and ready to move into his own room. We just found out we are having another boy so I'm excited to set things up so two boys can eventually share the space. Ive picked a "space" theme and had a friend make a quilt. I need to decide on a wall color for the room but would like some opinions. Here's the panel of fabric that I am using to draw my color pallet
I have a dresser that I am planning on painting red and a very large piece of graphic art depicting a rocket launch - it's over 5 1/2 ft tall
The crib is a dark finish too so I was thinking of picking up on either the yellow or the green in the fabric as my wall color to keep things from being to dark.
here is what the quilt looks like pieced together (you cant see if but the boarder of the quilt is the same red corduroy as the red patches). The polka dots also have similar green and yellows. I plan on using the quilt as either part of the window treatment or as a wall hanging.
What color would you use for the walls if working with this fabric?
Seeing as you're having another boy (CONGRATULATIONS, by the way!!! ) I'd paint the room two different colours. Red and Blue. Red on two walls, the opposite of eachother and Blue on the other two walls. You could even do Green and Blue, since your chest of drawers are going to be red.
I'd suggest green and yellow, but, you're going to be sharing the room with two boys, and I think green and yellow are more neutral colours.
Good luck!!! And don't forget to come back and show us what the end result looks like!!
This is a hard one, I know what you mean about not wanting the room too dark, but I don't think yellow or green are space colors. Space is black, but black would probably be out of the question and too dark even though I bet black would look really cool. So I say a dark navy blue. The fabric is bright and colorful enough to brighten the room frrom the curtains and bedding...along with the dark furniture and dark navy would be close to black and be more representative to what space is like. I wouldn't pain the walls red if you're going to have a red changer. I think it'd get lost.
Another suggestion, is if you don't have them already get those glow in the dark star/space wall stickers and put them on the ceiling to repesent the stars and planets, lil kids LOVE to look at those at night. I bet you can find them for cheap off ebay.
Hope this gives you ideas, these are my ideas. Good luck! Would love to see the finished room!
I'd paint the walls two colors. Bottom half red, top half the blue. Divide the two colors with a white stripe or chair rail molding. Or, if you can get your hands on more of the fabric, make your own border with it and use starch to paste it up.
