What color should I use? (piog)

We jsut got the bedding for our baby's nursery. It's a celery green color (pic included). We want to do the room in pink and green. My question is for the green, should I try to match the bedding or go a shade lighter or darker. Also, should we do the walls with green on the bottom and pink on the top... or all 1 color. 2 of the walls have paneling on the bottom half and plain textured walls on top. (pic included) and the other 2 walls are all textured. (I thought about doing the 2 walls 1/2 and 1/2 and the textured walls all pink. There's too many options and I need help. Thanks.

I would do pink on top and green on the bottom and maybe a shade darker in the green.

Wow those are some brown walls lol

I like the pink and green idea. Perhaps green on top and pink on the bottom.

Pink walls with green trim a shade darker then the bedding, green carpiting

Sadly, they are actually a BRIGHT orange. Our entire house was canary yellow, some shade of yellow or an orange when we moved in. We have painted everything except the baby's room.

i would leave the brown on the bottom and paint the top pink. Hopefully the brown matches the crib or the floor, otherwise I'd go a darker celery green on the bottom.

I agree with a previous poster--pink with a green trim. I think a sage green similar to this shade would look good.

I would do pink on top and stripe the paneling in pink and a darker celery green.

If you put the green up top, it would create a equal balance of the colors.
