We wanted to have a room that was not over girly and felt crisp and clean for the small space. We went with a shade of gray with white accents and little pops of color throughout. We re purposed several things thanks to white spray paint and worked on keeping the costs minimal.
clean open feel for a tight space
The closet doors were painted an off white before so we used chalkboard paint and painted them with that so we could write down nursery needs such as diapers, wipes etc and little notes to the baby. The baby will be able to use them when she is older for her own artwork.
I wallpapered the one crib wall with Allen Roths wallpaper from Lowes and we then had paint matched to the gray color for the rest of the walls.
I made a photo wall with a mix of Ikea shelves and random frames some new and some re purposed.
The white fluffy rug is from Target to help soften the room.

Just go with your gut and don't be afraid to mix old with new!
