Paint Suggestions for 3 Year Old Girl's Room

jlnickDecember 19, 2012

My daughter's new room will have bright and lighter pink accessories, with the bedding below. Furniture will be white. I think I want to paint the walls a shade of greige. I will probably end up doing some type of wall decal for decor, so want to keep the walls rather basic but still interesting, and still contrast against the white furniture. But appropriate for a 3 year old. Any suggestions on a color? Thanks in advance.

I think the greige sounds good but as to specific color the best thing to do is to grab a bunch of paint swatches and look at them in the actual room. With colors like that the daylighting and nightlighting the room gets are really going to affect the choice.

I think you will get more mileage out of your greige choice as a neutral backdrop than you would a typical "girl color" . If at 4-1/2 she suddenly hates pink, you could easily shift gears without repainting.

I have the same bedding (sheets) from Land of Nod. I paired it with BM Nimbus in my daughter's room. It's leans more gray than beige, but it goes well with the bedding.
