    I think that color is beautifUl. You could do watermelon or coral accents for a girl and navy for a boy. I love it!

    I think it’s fantastic, with yellow and grey you can add coral/pink for a girl and greens for a boy if you want to add more colours after baby is born. 

    We painted our smallest bedroom (currently the office) a light orange colour. Fiance picked it and told me later that it was because it would be perfect for a boy or a girl lol.

    Love the top and middle choices! We are also TTC but when I moved in with now-DH, we had much of his newly built house painted and I chose almost that exact color for our guest room which will become a nursery (here’s hoping). It would be really nice with coral/brick/peach for a girl or navy/white for a boy or yellow/grey + ? for gender-neutral. There is so much you can do with it! Word to the wise though, the blue-greens are super TRICKY to choose correctly. They look like totally different colors in diferent lights/times of day. I tested like no less than 6 similar shades on 3 walls for 3 days and was SO glad I did. It also helped using a lot of Pinterest and Houzz inspiration for some tried-and-true suggestions, what we chose had been named a top pick from Southern or Coastal Living I forget which but it helped me finalize! Good luck 🙂

    We painted the bedroom closest to ours bright sky blue and it will be for a boy or girl. Blue is our fav color. I think all of your colors work!

    I think the idea blue is a boy color is stupid anyway. It is a color, it has no gender! I love the blue! The second color is so pretty. I will say, having painted walls blue, try out the colors in a small area first because they don’t always look the same on the wall as they do on the sheet.

    I LOVE the first one. IMO, the other two are too dark? The hues are pretty though, and can be made more boyish, or if it’s a girl, can have coral/pink accents added.

    I think it’s a nice color and fine for a boy or a girl, but it’s pretty dark. I wouldn’t paint a whole room that color unless it had a LOT of windows and natural light, or else it’ll just be super intense. Maybe do an accent wall in that color with the rest of the room light grey or yellow? That would tie everything in nicely, too.

    I love it.  But I love blue!  

    We painted our nursery bright blue (Costa Rica Blue by Benjamin Moore.)  I love it.  

    We are accenting with yellow and grey.  And we have a big tree decal to put up once the paint has cured (2 weeks.)  

    We still don’t know if baby is a boy or a girl, but it doesn’t matter.  (I’m pretty convinced its a girl, we should find out on Friday.)
