I did a nautical theme with my son. I loved it! Here are some photos of his room.

This time we're having a girl and I'm doing sort of a boho/whimsical theme with lots of flowers, butterflies, and dream catchers. The main colors will be purple and mint

I have always been an avid reader and so has my husband so as soon as I mentioned it that was that. Of course for a boy I have adjusted a little bit to include Treasure Island and slightly more masculine stories. Pinochio instead of Cinderella that kind of thing.
OMG that's such a great idea!!! Reading is a huge part of my life too (Goodreads is one of my favorite websites lol), but unfortunately not a big part of BF's. Still, we want the little guy to read a lot and are thinking about doing a "Bring a Book for Alex and get entered in a raffle to win" at the baby shower or something. But that nursery idea is so cool and I would have loved it as a child.
that's already on my baby shower invitations. with a note inside for him to read. My best friend has already supplied him with all of the Shel Silverstein poetry books and my mom sent over all of my books I had as a kid, unfortunately they're very girly.. I don't think he is going to be interested in my Anne of Green Gables and Little House on the Prairie collections.. I am in love with my nursery plans. and everyone who hears it says that that sounds just exactly like us. It feels really good.

I love Peter Pan! I think if I had to choose just one story to focus on Peter Pan would have been it. there are so many great decorating decisions to choose from.

We are going for Cath Kidston style, lots of pink and flowers for our first girly. Can't wait to get started. I'm making her a patchwork quilt with the top left fabrics x

I had a natural theme the first time. My son's room is painted in a pale, almost mint green, two smaller walls in white (opposing), very light wood with white and a bit of Aqua blue. I got a cloud curtain at Ikea and a Mobile with bugs from Ikea.
I will keep the room the same. Tbh my son never spent much time in his room. It is more to store his things. He sleeps in our bed.

Can I just tell you that I tried the Star Wars theme first and BF shot it down?!? I'm kind of a super nerd and love Star Wars, so I was a little PO'ed at him for that one, but I got over it lol. Still, that's wicked cool.
That might have been a relationship changer for me! Hubby loves Star Wars as much as I do at least, but we constantly fight about our preference for Jedi versus Sith. Trying to find a delicate balance in the decorations is going to be interesting.

I want grey and baby pink. Either clouds or elephants, but we don't get the gorgeous variety of stuff you guys in America get though, I'm always on eBay and etsy and everything I like is from accross the pond

Haha well obviously your son is the Chosen One and will bring balance

But yeah, all these nursery ideas from you ladies are amazing! I'm just so curious to see what other people are doing. This is our first child and I honestly just really liked thinking of the theme, and now going to the store to start picking things out for it. Some of these are so creative, it feels like a cop out to be going with something more mainstream, but I have a degree in marine sciences and I love to scuba dive, so it just seemed to fit

We are re using all the things we had from our first as it was neutral so although we know we're having boy, it will still be fine.

It's a jungle theme so lots of colour and animals.

We're doing a loose Peter Rabbit theme.

My friend got us the collection of Beatrix Potter books, so I thought it would be nice to work around them

What I want to do is have the walls pink and cover some canvases in the same fabric as will be used on her quilt. Not sure on decorations yet though, so will keep looking

We're not going to be setting it up yet as we're looking for a new house, so don't want to decorate and then be moving as it will just be a waste of time and money
