I’m due with #2 at the end of the year and ordered a pullout sectional at lunch today for when our guest room converts to nursery #2 and learned that they’re operating on a 3 1/2 month lead time, which means I need to order basically now to have any wiggle room before my due date, but I’m drawing a blank on nursery colors.
Baby is a girl. Big sister’s room is violet and blue so I wouldn’t want to repeat that. The room is already painted a pale grass green that could work for a nursery but I have no ideas for complementary colors, or we could always paint. Help!

@karenbme: we painted my daughter's room yellow and really like how bright and cheery it looks! My grandma also made little embroidered frames pieces that we hung in her room, similar to the one in this pic.

Not sure how you feel about pink, but our daughter’s room is Sherwin Williams Malted Milk and it is the perfect sophisticated blush color! It looks great against our dark wood trim and brass accents.

@winter_wonder: those embroidered frames are adorable! I used to do needlepoint (my grandma was our summer childcare) and I’m sure could find a kit or something, maybe for something leafy/botanical.
@bees_knees: malted milk looks exactly like the color of my elementary school bedroom! It is uncanny. I’m not against pink, in general. We have light floors and white trim, though, so that color may not be ideal in our space.
I did see this picture https://uwdecals.com/products/ferns-eucalyptus-wall-decals that I thought looked dreamy, with a crisp white wall and some green accents elsewhere. For my older daughter I painted a mural of mountains behind her crib, so I feel like it would be a nice symmetry.
