Q: We painted our guest bedroom the most beautiful rich, deep blue - Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball - before learning that we were pregnant. We love the color of the room and would like not to repaint it. However, we're expecting a baby girl. Can you offer any color scheme advice/tips/images on how to make the room more 'girl friendly'? Obviously the room won't be over-the-top girly, but I would definitely like for it to look like a baby girl's room.
Sent by KellyEditor: This is a rather sophisticated color - almost navy, but not quite. I would consider using an accent color that is equally rich and sophisticated like a deep lavender or vivid magenta. Readers, what ideas do you have?
