View Full Version : What color should we paint James' room?

We are going to have a twin bed in James' room (even if we have a crib in there for a while, too), and I have decided on a wild animal theme for the bedding. I am pretty sure I am going to use this set from Company Kids:


Right now the walls of the room are off-white (like the whole house), and I would like to do something different, but I am sooo bad at picking colors for decorating. The carpet is also beige, and the furniture will be pine with a natural finish. Any suggestions?

How about a bright sky blue? That would allow the pine furniture to stand out, I think, and would be a good contrast to the bedding. I saw something like this on the Behr website, and Bayou is a bright blue that might work. Were you trying to be more subtle, though, since your house is ivory?

I would do blue, yellow or red, so you have more of a contrast between that and the bedding. If you do a green or a brown, you'll just have a whole lotta neutral.
