I painted the nursery walls today. We had decided to only go up as high as a piece of trim board that is even with the top of the window and the top of the closet; therefore, the space above that would be white. It seemed like a really great idea at the time because the highest point of the ceiling is about 13-14 feet, and then it slopes down to about 12 feet.

I am happy with the paint color...but when I stepped back and looked at it, I'm not so sure about leaving the upper portion white--I still have the blue painters tape up along the trim board. (Please disregard the Scarface poster--that will be gone tomorrow along with the plates on the wall! The ceiling comes to a point at the center of the window/poster.)
The crib and the rest of the furniture are white.

I will be putting some vinyl quotes up on the wall--definately over the crib. Once the lovely Scarface poster (there is one about the same size on the opposite wall too!) and the plates are removed, I think it will look bare above the trim and I have no clue as to what to do.

Any ideas?

The bedding:

I can't really tell with the painter's tape and the other things on the wall. The off-white color kinda goes with the bedding, but I'd think you'd need to separate it with a border or something. I think, I personally, would paint the whole wall.. or I would've done a border, but lower. I hope you get it figured out!

huge thanks to Jaidynsmum for my lovely siggy!

Here are my suggestions. I'd either paint the lower portion a little darker (so the bedding doesn't blend right in) or leave the color you have and paint the upper half a creamy beige color (maybe even similar to the one in the sample bedding pic.) That would provide a little more contrast. Good luck, can't wait to see how it turns out!

*Thank you so much to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!*
