It took two coats but the room looks great.  The picture doesn’t do it justice, but we are loving the warm yellow walls!

We picked out about 20 different paint samples at the store today and taped them all up … only to realize we should have chosen some lighter options.  We are left with 2 yellows and a yellow/orange shade.  In the end we felt all the blues were going to make it too much of a “boy room” and didn’t love any of the greens.   I’m on the fence … think we need to go back for some lighter greens to check out.

2/22 – update – just to share, this is the color that is topping my faves at the moment – Glidden “sunbeam” – an orangey-yellow:


Bedding February 17, 2010

We scooped up the baby’s bedding set pretty much as soon as we decided what we wanted!  It’s “Little Tree” by Migi. We like that although it’s got some blue, it’s definitely gender neutral without being the typical green checks or polka dots.

We haven’t figured out the rest of the nursery yet, but this is our building block of sorts, and it’s nice to feel like we’ve done something towards making our office into a baby-space.
