Once you have a basic color palette in mind, start shopping for baby bedding. To choose a nursery paint color, you might take a pillow or only the crib quilt with your to the paint store to get a good color match.
With the wall paint color and nursery bedding set in hand, you now have a plan for colors to use in decorating the rest of the baby's nursery. It will now be easy to designate what colors to use in accent pieces that can be displayed throughout the baby's room.
