Q: Hello! We're currently decorating our future nursery and we're excited to go with a forest-y look for the room. We're papering one wall in a tree paper (Sandberg's Rafaël, see the picture above), but we can't figure out what color to paint the other walls.

There's a lot of white trim in the room, so we're not wild about the idea of matching the wallpaper's cream background. We were thinking an extremely pale blue or yellow (like a cheerful sky?). We don't want it to look cold or too grown-up. What do all of Apartment Therapy's wise readers think?? -Sent by Ini

Editor: Oh my goodness, I love a nursery-painting question that doesn't mention gender! Ini, this wallpaper is fabulous and I think your nursery is going to be amazing—lucky baby. Readers, what color do you think the other three walls should be painted?
