New rug and paint chips...

Joe and I were in Target last weekend and weren't even shopping for the nursery, but I spotted this rug. It's 8' x 10', has all the right colors and is super plush and comfy to sit on.

I'm planning on placing the wallpaper border at chair rail height and was originally thinking of painting pink on top and violet on the bottom. A while back, my waiting momma friend, Heather, suggested using one color for the walls (lighter on top and darker on the bottom) using my 2nd color as an accent with accessories in the room.

I think with all the pink in the rug, I'm going to take Heather's advice and use violet on the walls...light on top and darker on the bottom.

What do you all think of these paint chips? The colors directly on top and on bottom of the border are what I'm considering. I think they coordinate very nicely with the rug.


Here's everything together. I'm starting to get motivated to finally start painting and putting together the room.

I'm so glad I found this rug, because it helped me start to pull everything together.

We have the same border and use yellow on the top 1/2 of the walls. Good luck with your decision.

I think the color choices are great and will look good in the room! A plus to having darker walls on the bottom is that they are probably less likely to show the hand prints and other smuges that kids just seem to make.
