Can a little girls nursery be light green?

I am expecting around January and I am having a girl. The bedding I have from my first daughter is white with purple and pink flowers and is trimmed in green. I was thinking about painting the walls a light green. I purchased a light green changing table cover and also a light green crib sheet. I think they would look nice, just don't think I have ever seen a nursery painting light green for a girl. I was hoping for a boy and I was going to paint it the same but decorate in frogs and have my cousin paint a frog that matched the bedding on the wall. He is really good and I had the whole bedroom set in my head, but now I think frogs are not really for a girl but maybe I could still paint it the same color. Let me know what you think.

  • We painted our dd's a nice apple green before she was born. I'm not a pink and purple kind of girl and I don't think I could handle a pink and purple nursery lol.

  • You could still paint it a light green. Adding pink around the room and I think it would be cute.

  • It can be any color you want it to be. I know that purple and green go well together, so go for it if you want to!

  • I did my daughter's room in green with a periwinkle border that has touches of that same green and some yellow in it. It's beautiful! I did it shortly before she was born and changed up the bedding when she got older to update the look to a young girl's room. I still love it (as does she)!!! Go for it!

  • Its going to be YOUR daughters room, You can paint it any color you want. Colors are just that colors. I think the room idea you have sounds great. =)

  • A friend painted the nursery for her girl/girl twins a light green with purple accents. It was really nice.

    Our nursery was a small room so we kept the walls white and did the curtains in blue and purple.
