Right now we’re trying to figure out what we want the nursery to look like. Honestly, we really don’t know what we want. I don’t want to just paint the walls a plain color but I want something with a little pizzazz. John just doesn’t want something too busy.
Here is one picture that we like:
We both like this, though not necessarily in these colors. I don’t think it would be too hard to do, because it is just straight lines that need to be taped off. I think it would look fun behind the crib, but not necessarily the whole wall, maybe just above a chair rail. Who knew that argyle would be cool on modern nursery walls?
Here’s the other picture that we both like:
I don’t particularly like the shades of colors that are being used, but I think that the polka dots are really neat. This would be really super easy to do on the walls with paint, even though the website I found it on used stickers (I’m not afraid of playing with paint. If something goes wrong, you just paint over it!). We have some shelves that are currently white that will go on the walls and I want to put the baby’s name up in wooden letters covered with fabric. I think I would make both of those in stripes, in similar colors to the polka dots, to contrast with the dots. But, how many walls to put the polka dots on?
There is only one really good sized blank wall. That’s where the crib is going. Two walls have windows on them (which are being replaced with low-e windows within the next month, we’re having the estimate done early next week) and the final wall has a nice sized closet and the door.
So, what do you guys think? We could use some opinions as I’d like to start painting within the next week or so (I want to have the nursery done (other than furniture) before I start teaching again in September). Please leave comments here or on FB, as we really would like to know what you think.
PS. Yes, we do know what we’re having, but we’re not telling anyone other than family until we have the official anatomy scan at beginning of August, just in case there was a mix-up.
PPS. I can officially apply for my K-12 Bio license in NJ. I got an A in my class 🙂
