You are my Sunshine nursery ideas

I am wanting to redecorate my daughters nursery, with the theme you are my Sunshine. Any ideas? Her furniture is an Oak color. Her walls are currently a light green. I really don't want to change the furniture color. What color should I paint the room? Bedding ideas?

  • what about doing a garden mural? You could do a base in light blue, with flowers and a big bright sunshine.

  • Yellow walls are nice. Maybe paint a sun on the wall.

  • The frst thing that popped into my mind was a mural. Nothing intricate, but maybe the sun peeking out from the corner of the ceiling or something? And you could paint the walls sky blue and white. I imagine green, yellow or blue bedding, or maybe some combination.

    I'm not much of a decorator.....was just imagining. Great theme idea, btw!

  • If you are wanting to make her bedding yellow, making the walls yellow also will be a lot of yellow IMO. If you aren't able to do a mural on your own you could google wall art or wall decals or something along those lines and see if you can find some cute things. Keeping your walls a solid color like green and/or blue may work if you find things. Or you could just put a border up 3/4 of the way up the wall. We did this with my first son. If you can paint a sun, and do it in the corner, it could go on the ceiling and 2 walls...making an entire sun. And the walls blue and make soft clouds at the top of the wall and ceiling.

  • I would paint the walls a light aqua blue and then go to Etsy for sunshine decor. Like this
    or this[]=tags&includes[]=title
    cute wall decal[]=tags&includes[]=title

    Then I would get white sheets with yellow polka dots and a solid yellow comforter.

  • Just thought of something else. So that it isn't too much yellow or sunshine in the room, at the baseboards, on the same wall as the sunshine decal these flowers in whatever color

    Then get some accents in the color of the flowers. A small lamp, throw blankets, etc.
