Geez - me neither. Sorry sechome !
gotogregg - cool fan ! What's the diff between Bears blue & Cubs blue ? All I know is sorry Colts Blue - right now. Matter of fact that's what my boys' room is slowly evolving into.

The color combination sounds really pretty! You can paint the walls creme with navy molding. It's so soft and still boyish. Also a bed in a nursery usually looks overcrowded. Is someone else sleeping in the room also? You can put in a recliner for you to dose on.

Maybe you could focus on colors rather than objects, if that makes sense? I like the idea of reds, and other bright colors, but maybe wait on the sports theme til he's a little older (assuming he likes sports). That way you won't have to worry about getting everything to match a pattern.

I recliner is a good place to rock the baby & to use a an extra sleeping space. The pattern sounds busy so I would probably go with cream walls.

it sounds like you are going to have to take the day bed out to put the crib in. maybe a futon would use less space? and as far as the color of the walls....i would do blue. it'll be a color he can always use. red isn't good at all for wall paint.

I am also agree on that.

You can put in a recliner. It's a comfortable place to feed and rock the baby and can also be used for sleeping. It's usually an even better option than a daybed.

i wouldn't put an extra sleeping space in. it's not necessary in my opinion. a rocking chair or recliner would be fine

When its about painting a boy's room you can play safe with the colour blue. If the area of the room is cramped then you can go for light blue and if its spacious you can go for darker tones.

You can opt for built in furniture t5hat can be fixed on the walls, this will save your space problem and make your room look bigger giving your kid more space to play around.
