I know this doesn’t really help, but I REALLY like the first one…I think I might buy it for my little monkey! For me, it’s just easier to read.

i love the look of molding to create a frame on the wall!

Are you planning on being in that house a long time?  It just seems like it wouldn’t be worth it to paint just part of a wall.  Could you put it on a mirror, instead?  What about just repainting one whole wall as an accent wall?

The second one seems like more work and might look goofy.   I’d go with the first one.

I like the square of paint and molding idea – it will make a really nice feature in the baby’s room.  And I love the decals – I’m monkey crazy these days – the cutest baby stuff with monkeys – I die…   Tongue out

if you exchanged it, do you think she’d notice the difference after it was up on the wall??

Can’t you just tell her you already ordered the ones from etsy and take the ones she got back? Just say you can’t return the ones you’ve ordered since they were customized (or something).

Get the ones you like.  It was a lovely gesture of her, but Im sure if you explain that you tried it and it just didnt work and you went with the other one she’ll understand.

I actually like the second set of decals better.  I like the font better, the spacing better, and even the monekys better. 

I think painting a square and putting molding around it would also be cute.  If you really don’t want to deal with paint again then get a poster board frame and put the decals on heavy paper or poster board and then put in the actual frame.

I was planning on doing green in our nursery (long saga as to why that changed) and you need to be careful with blue greens and yellow greens.  Based on that first picture, if that is very similar to your wall color, it looks a bit more blue green to me than truly a yellow green and the second decal set is definitely yellow green.  Sometimes, just because it is a shade of green does not mean it matches another shade of green.  To me, green is a very tricky color if it is the primary color in a room.

In regard to your question, I like the idea of painting a white square on the wall and framing it out as if it were a picture if the greens in the second decal truly match your wall color.  If it isn’t complimentary though, I wouldn’t do it.

ETA: I went to behr’s website and pulled up your color.  It seems to be very close to coordinating with the second set of decals; however, it is pale enough that the second decal may blend in and you lose all that detail.
