    @Evie19: Hey! That second nursery picture I pinned on my ‘broody’ board on Pinterest 😉 I love white as it’s calming and I find it happier.

    Beautiful set! I voted white because I’m always drawn to white cribs in nursery inspiration photos, and I think the set you picked would be lovely in white. I do see your dilemma, though, because I think the deep wood would also work and be timeless. Still, I’m sticking with my guns on this.

    @Evie19:  Very pretty set! I voted white. It’s definitely in all of my inspiration pics right now too! I think it is so much softer and peaceful for a baby/kids room. And to be honest, by the time they are older they will probably get a new dresser anyways. I think white will be classic enough for the length of time your kid(s) will make use of it.

    Personally, I love white- that is what I originally wanted. However, we had beautiful dark cherry furniture that had been in my family that we decided to use instead because all we needed to do was buy a crib to match. We decorated the room with calming colors and now I don’t regret the choice.

    One more thing- I only like white furniture for a girl’s room. I’m guessing you don’t know the gender yet, but would that play any part in your decision?

    I normally like white but if you plan to keep the furniture or at least the dresser for the child’s use later on..wood might be best. you can always refinish and paint wood should it get chipped stained etc.

    I remember having white furniture as a child and I destroyed it Lol. My husband told me he didn’t want white in our baby’s room because it could get dirty or poopy! Gross Haha!! But I think he meant its harder to keep clean. I personally am looking at black furniture. But I do really like the wood. Where did you find it??

    @Evie19:  I guess I am in the minority…I voted wood. While the white looks so pretty and calming, white gets dirty very easy, and I can see you having to scrub all the time once your baby gets older. You can still do everything in white, but the furniture I would keep wood.

    I voted wood…. I agree with your co-workers that it does look better quality. And then I thought you would have some color with the wood and then use the rugs, bedding, decorations etc. in a cream/white/nuetral.

    Why not a set with both? Babyletto makes some stunning mixed wood sets.
