Hi, i live in a typical cape house so the upstairs has two slanted walls - so it's not your typical 90 degree walls in basic bedrooms. Therefore it makes it a little harder to decorate. Anybody else in this boat? If so what were/are your plans for baby's nursery? TIA!

Rooms with slanted walls often look the best when the walls and ceiling are painted all the same color-or the ceiling a shade lighter. It will help open the space up with those angled sides. I bet you can do something really neat with the slanted parts. If the crib fits under with enough room for you to get in, I bet some neat shears hung on both sides would be cool. Wall art is going to be difficult unless you have plenty of straight walls for that.

Another idea for those slants is to paint trees growing up them with the branches just touching the ceiling. You could paint your clouds and blue sky up there then.

I'm sure a lot of what you can do will depend on what gender and style you go for.
