Paint colour for new wee boy's room

So I'm brewing a boy, due in December.

Any tips for what colour to paint his room? At the moment it's our spare junk room so we're undertaking a makeover this bank hol weekend.

We want to avoid the whole 'blue for boys' thing and I like the idea of a jungle / animals theme. If we paint the walls, we can then put up stickers and friezes which we can change as he gets older. I love this Mothercare Little Circus range of bedding etc.

Any ideas for paint colour? We thought maybe yellow? Any thoughts gratefully received!

I'd probably go with off white, to offset all the inevitable brightly coloured stuff!

Or if you're going for a jungle theme, you could do a pale green.

this website has a nice range of jungle themed wall stickers.

Thanks for the link minipie, I love that wall sticker, it's perfect! Having to sit on hands to avoid spending a fortune I don't have on that site.

One thing that put me off blue paint is it can look cold, so not sure about green - although it's meant to be calming.
