    I would go with green. It’s more versatile. In 6 or 7 years, you may want a very different little girl’s room than you did nursery, and with green, you may avoid the need to repaint, etc. and simply be able to swtich out the decor and accents.

    I think the green wall is the way to go so you can avoid repainting later! Love the idea of using a decal to make it a little more girly! What about something like these?

     

     


     

     


     

     


     

    Also, since you said the room is bright, you could do curtains around the crib in a pretty purple chiffon or something so it’s still all princessy:

    I think you will be happiest with the light green walls and light purple accents.  I think that the purple will “pop” more against the green, vs. the other way around, and I think that the room will have a softer overall feel to it.

    I think if you are going to do the walls green you will want to go with a richer hue of purple, or go with the purple walls. The last picture doesnt have green in it but you can see how the green from outside pops against the purple in the room

    I think purple walls with green items will be cuter and more girly.  But green walls would be more neutral for next kid or repurpose the room.

    I am a bit biased because I LOVE purple.. and had a bright cheery purple room growing up 🙂 I voted purple. Kind of like the purple photogbee has in her first pic 

    It was a lot like this color.. I think. lol I’m recalling it from memory here

    I had lots of white furniture and actually had a mostly light green and yellow quilt for my bed

    like this color:

    or this one

     i also had light whispy white curtains

    curtains like this could work nicely

    I would definitely do pale green walls and bring in lots of purple accents, like bedding. We’re having a girl and chose light green for the walls, figuring we may end up with two babies sharing the room in a couple of years.

    I voted for purple walls with green accents. I know it isn’t as practical if you have another child but I think it will look amazing!
