We're starting with a very pale purple base. I'm painting thick stripes on all four walls. Color will always appear more vibrant once it's on the wall. We've chosen Benjamin Moore's Grape Ice:
I'm still creating an accent wall with decals from etsy seller byrdiegraphics in soft blue which is a pale aqua color.
They already have the furniture for the room which includes two contemporary white cribs (you don't realize how big a crib is until you have two of them!), an oh-so-comfy white large armed chair and ottoman, a white changing table, and a white dresser. The room is a bit cramped for space but they have a large closet so storage for clothing and extra wipes, diapers, etc. won't be an issue. I am currently sending them accent tables. Some of my favorites:
We would do either of these in blue or that pink to highlight the wall decals and brighten up the ambiance.

I am using ANOTHER owl mobile from etsy! I should be some kind of etsy dealer. This one is from fongstudio and we're going to hang it from a teal ribbon:
I just emailed etsy seller ManicMuffin Totes about a custom teal and pink owl pillow for their comfy white chair:
They have also purchased this purple and white rug from Linens 'N Things, returning their striped rug, once they decided I could paint the walls:
We still have much to do but we're off to a great start! Once they select a table, I'm working on curtains and bedding.
