I'm not a fan of the slate color on the bottom half of the wall. A child's room is a perfect place for colors which are calming--after all it's their bedroom.

I'm getting old. I don't understand the need to start a child's life out without vibrant colors that stimulate their minds and imaginations. Thank goodness the books on the wall might attract the child's attention and inspire reading. Not saying a room needs to be chaotic about color, just don't like the limiting visuals. Nothing in life is black and white, and IMHO a child's first room shouldn't be either.

What's black and white and red all over?

dont worry, extended family and friends will soon mess up any theme the parents choose for the children's rooms. Lots of colourful toys will be added! And to the living room, and hallway, and then we will get one of those dilemmas posted. Help, how to get my house back!
