Need some color help here

I am looking for ideas for the babies room.

The walls are white with hardwood cielings in dark brown. With a light brown laminate floor.

I currently have this crib that turns into a toddler for DS. New baby will be in a cosleeper first, but I figure for coordinations sake we will get another of these so they match. This is the basis furniture I am working with.

If it fits. I was thinking of adding a 4 by 4 ikea cube thing for diapers in the top half and books and toys in the bottom.

Then a double dresser for both babies clothing.

I am torn between this one and use the top as a changing area

or 2 of these side by side

This will be the only clothing storage we have for both kids, German apartments do not have closets, and I am not doingh a wardrobe as the hanging space is just wasted. The alternative would be to try and find a wardrobe with just shelves, but I have yet to see anything like that at ikea.

I am looking at either white or the light brown color, what do you think. White is cheaper-

I plan to personalize the room with a big owl themed wall sticker. I like bright bold colors. So I will add various color throught the room.

If they do work, do I go white to match the cribs, or pine brown which is the same color as the floor...

Now I have to measure, I hope it would fit...

Ok, no go does not fit, but I am thinking the 2 tall dressers side by side, and then on the wall above, one of those 2 by 4 cube book shelves, assuming you can hang them on the wall.

That will not fill the full wall and leave room for something at the end like a nice hamper basket, or basket for toys, or if needed some smaller other storage solution...
