This is the room, all white. 2.5" white blinds, a white closet and white doors. Beige carpet.

Here are my "inspiration rooms" from Pottery Barn. I want to take my favorite aspects from each and combine them in my room.

This is my bedding and the colors that I am working with

And this is my crib, working with espresso furniture

I also have white features, like this chair.

...and I have this huge blue rug

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~

Okay, PHEW! Now that you have the background, which wall sceme/pattern do you like the best? The thin white line in the middle of each is a white chair rail that I am going to install. (ps, I already have the paint, the light blue and dark blue...I just realized that it looks a tad different in each of these pics, I didn't mean for that to happen)

I like the first one, because I really love that deeper blue, it gives the room a very elegant feel. I think you will get a gorgeous room using those elements, Breanna. Beautiful choices!

I think the first one, too! It is going to look sooo great!

BTW, this is one of my all-time fav. Pottery Barn rooms too! Did you get the bedding from there, or somewhere else?

I vote for the 1st one as well! I love everything you have for Reid!

Are you going to be doing wall letters as well??? I think the photo with "Taylor" on the wall, is a wonderful way to hang the letters up for a boy.

Be sure to come back and show us your finished product!!!

I'd say the first one, also. The other two are great, but a little too much in my opinion.

I like them all, but the first is my favourite. I love the way to hang the name in vertical instead of the usual horizontal.

It would depend for me on what you were planning to put on the walls... what color your decorations are, that is. I love that the white shelves contrast against the dark blue walls in your inspiration pics. Or if your decorations are dark blue, I would do #3 paint scheme so it shows up against the white. If you haven't picked your wall decorations yet, I lean toward #3 and would look for mostly dark blue wall art.
