Help! Looking for a good gray (hint of blue?) nursery paint color

Posted by JenniferMarshall (My Page) on

My husband and I are going to paint our nursery soon. We are expecting a baby girl. The crib will be white and furniture most likely white. We are having a hard time picking the perfect gray color. I don't want anything too dark because the room only has one window that doesnt let in a lot of light and the carpet is dark brown.
My husband was thinking an accent wall?

We have paint paper samples from home depot and lowes. Martha Stewarts were kind of the favorites. Does anyone know of any good light gray colors, or colors that are gray with a tint of blue (like a light vintage/robins egg/minty blue) that will work for the room?
I know when you paint the colors on the wall they arent always true to their colors. Any recommendations would be great!

SW Sea Salt looks very nice with dark brown.

Valspar has a color called "Silver City." It is a nice gray with just a smidge of blue to it. It you have a nice texture and use semi-gloss, it's shimmery. Looks great in my little boy's room, which has zero texture. And I had extra, so I painted my bathroom with it too! (That;s where I found the shimmer!)

Looks great with all colors, especially browns and primary colors.

I can look at my chip books and see what I can come up with if you're still looking.

I did my bedroom in a light slate blue-gray with white trim and ceiling.
