There’s still some planning to do before we decide on anything for sure. It’s really fun to think about!! Ahhh!! I can’t believe we are really finally doing this – so exciting!! 😀 Currently, the carpet in the nursery is a dark brown, which we aren’t changing. The walls and trim are white (blah). The room definitely needs spruced up and brightened. I’m pretty sure we’re going with a light/bright green (pictured below) for the wall color.
For the crib and other furniture, we haven’t decided whether we’ll go with brown or white. White furniture could help lighten and brighten things up, since we have brown carpet. However, I’ve always like the way deep brown furniture looks. I want to focus more on the wall color and theme prior to choosing furniture. I hope to get the room painted in the next couple weeks, and then it will be easier to decide on the rest. 🙂
These colors are pretty close to what we like best:
The theme is definitely monkeys! 🙂 It will be a mixture of safari/jungle, but mostly monkeys. We’d like to get some safari stuffed animals, a rug, lamp, pillows, and other cute little items to match. This is a removable wall applique from Amazon that I really like. It’s large, so I think it will look great for the wall behind the crib.

I love the idea of having block letters to spell the baby’s name, too. These blocks are pretty cute. (With the name Graham, obviously). Or even something more simple, with just the colors we like would be really nice. I don’t want to over-do it with the monkeys.
This is the bedding that our good friend got for us! I love it!! It has some yellow in it, which we could also utilize as an accent color. It doesn’t all have to be a precise, perfect match though. The blue, green, and brown colors are my favorite.
Here’s a photo where they utilized the dots in other areas:
Some accessories I like (these might not be the exact things we get, but you get the idea): 🙂
