@Leonard2B:  That is a lot of stuff going on in that picture. I would think a nice beige or very light powder blue to match the accents might work. Again, nothing too over the top that would compete with the already busy decor/linens.

I’m probably not the norm, but I would probably do a light color on 3 walls and then one dark wall in an accent color, maybe navy? I have BM Manchester Tan and Hale Navy in my house and really like both.

Could you maybe do one wall with navy blue?  There’s kind of a lot going on already.  I actually really like the tan they have in the picture, but I’m pretty plain too haha.

@Leonard2B:  What about an accent wall mimicking the green stripes? Or the orange color for a little pop?

@Leonard2B:  I would do blue and green with maybe some tan.

You could do a sage green

Personally I love light green as an rule and would do that if I was going to paint. But i’m trying to find ‘non-painting’ room solutions currently. We will be moving when I’m more pregnant and just don’t want to do all that with no air out time before baby gets here. Weird suggestion. How are you going to use the quilt/blanket? Cause it’s adorable but i know most of us won’t be putting it over the baby at night. So I wonder if you could hang it on the wall. Would almost be like a removable mural, kepts it out of the way but also pops really interesting on the wall when not in use.
