I've had a keen idea for a long while now that it would be light grey, white & purple (deep purple). HOWEVER, I just came across this gorgeous baby girl bedding in land of nod yesterday (it's new!). I could still get by with a grey, white & purple color palate, but this introduces a vibrant yellow into the mix as well. I love the quilt, with it's array of different patterns that mix well. I love how it looks graphic & modern, despite having a 'country quilt'. Perfect compliment in my eyes! Want to see it???
Of course you do!
I would lay down either carpet tiles, or a large graphic rug, that covers all but the perimeter of the room's floor. The rug would be either purple & white, or grey & white (two colors; keep it simple).
The walls: urban sunrise by Valspar. A light grey. The ceiling would be painted the same color. However, in the middle of the room, I would paint a HUGE, WIDE dark purple stripe (we're talking like 4-6 feet wide), and the stripe would rise up from the floor, up the wall, wrap-up onto the ceiling, and down the other side.
The crib would look something like this (not this exact one, but I love the decorative spindles, so one very similar to this style):
I think a day bed in the room would work as well. That way, "mom" could catch some winks in-between baby waking in the middle of the night. And.....when baby outgrows the crib, she can just go straight to the day bed. Here's an example from IKEA:
I have a ton of lighting ideas too, & art, & furniture (vintage, vintage, vintage & painted & adorned with gorgeous custom knobs/pulls) & drapes (think homemade from canvas drop cloths courtesy of Home Depot, then stenciled & painted!), but I'm holding-out for now!
