  • how about the white wainscot shown in the picture with the green walls as close as possible to the bedding with thin brown stripes. Even the wall color in the picture is ok, just use artwork that compliments the design of the bedding. The bedding is beautiful by the way.

  • I like the walls from the photograph off the site from the bedding. Did you not like it? You could always go with a lighter green (more mint) & then white at the lower bottom. Do a chair railing around the wall. It looks very fresh,clean & also calming for the baby. Another thing is to paint the room all one color except for one wall & make it you focus point wall. Your decor in the room will add the rest to the room. Whatever you decide on good luck & have fun with it!

  • I am unable to add chair railing to the walls, we are on base and they only allow painting, and no i do not like what they already have on the walls for the picture i want something that will look nice with it and that isnt even in the right theme of colors.

  • Why don't you consider using a faux suede paint in the same mint green as the bedding? It will be one color, but will have a "brushed" appearance to it--which adds a warm feeling to the room, then hand paint tall blades of grass--draw in pencil first then paint--grass doesn't require any artistic ability!  The add simple white eyelet curtains/valances/panels. You could even buy large animal wall clings and go with a nature theme!
