The guest room was painted with light yellow. When we found out we were expecting the guest room would be our 1st baby's bedroom. I thought it is simply a good opportunity to create. It is a small space so we can't be creative so much with adding furntiure etc but we can paint the walls. By looking at the wall I can envision lines that would make the room look longer. I joined the freecyclers group and picked up some paint and simply worked around with what I have. As for inspiration? It is the idea of having an opportunity to create and working with what you've got (innovate). I thought didn't have ideas on the other wall. So, I've asked my husband to create something on the other side -- his own. He has never done it before and was weary about it painting is easy if you make a mistake paint over it. If you plan and sketch your idea it should be OK. So here is the snippet of what my husband ended up doing.

Modern, fresh and clean.
Foot Print and Hand Print - a different color for right and left.
Alphabet Print was originally designed as a modern monogramme stationery.
Paint Colors were received from freecyclers. We didn't choose it is what's available.
Crib a hand me down.
Pillow around the crib. MIL sew a light avocado green as the original pattern was too busy and we didn't want the decor to blend and not clash.
Our favourite in the room - - the wall murals and the paintings. We will take more photos. We change every so often as to how we decorate.
