Remember my Pregnancy Mellow? Well in a lot of ways, it's still in effect, but I'm finally starting to think about some baby-related stuff. I'm reading my first baby-related book (Happiest Baby on the Block by Dr. Harvey Karp), I'm doing some very initial research into childcare options (I'd like to stress very initial), we're discussing pediatrician options, and I even made a list of all the crap we have yet to accumulate for this child. All of these things, and more, I plan to get your input on because seriously, we have no idea what we're doing.
But today is about the baby's room. I'm having so much fun thinking about what I want to do in there. I have no real theme, but it will likely involve a lot of colors and patterns. We have a couple elephant and giraffe things we'll incorporate, and I have my eye on some world/map/atlas-y things, as well. I don't plan to spend a ton of money, time or effort on a room for an infant, but since we just bought this house, we have a blank slate and it's fun to imagine.
Anyway, I need some input on paint color. As you know, we won't know the sex of this baby until it's born, which fortunately poses very few problems for us as our taste is very gender neutral anyway. We've decided to do a purpley-grey color on the walls. I think purple is usually gender neutral, especially if it's not leaning toward fuschia, and I'm more drawn to it right now than the usual yellows and greens. I've pinned several potential contenders, but they're all starting to blur together.
Can you help?
Here are six shades I've narrowed it down to. I think you should vote in comments!
A) Beguiling Mauve
B) Studio Mauve
D) Chaise Mauve
E) Dressy Rose
F) Crushed Grape
Keep in mind that I want the purple to lean toward grey rather than red or pink, but I don't want it to end up looking grey. I have a lot of grey in my house already. Also, if you think I'm totally off base with the purple idea, please don't tell me, just don't vote. Or vote for the one you hate the least. I have a vision damn it!
