    Hello All,

    Maybe completely stupid to be asking !! I've been treated to the Timbuktales range at Mamas and Papas. I'm Team Yellow and loving not knowing what the baby is so his range I think is perfect !! However I really want to paint the nursery wih a coloured feature wall and thinking of Orange. I've been advised not to make it too bright as the baby may not settle etc. Any views on this ??

    Thanks

    Sam ❤ xx

    I painted a blue and green rainforest feature wall in the nursery and had the fisher price rainforest animal stickers. So if you want bright orange then go for it.

    I love the Timbuktales range by the way. x

    I think colour is fine but ive also heard pastel colour s settle baby better and the less u have in there to stimulate baby too much the better. You could maybe do a feature wall?

    Baby's can only see black white and red so I wouldn't worry about orange. It should be fine! Xx

    I was going to say same as Amy, newborns only see black and white anyway. I'm sure when they're lying in the cot they won't see much of the wall anyway. Xx
