Nursery Themes! What are you doing?


So I had the dreaded winter cold last week and stayed at home on the couch for 2 and a half days, thus I had a lot of time to think of a theme. My BF really liked the idea of a nautical theme, with anchors and sailboats and such, so we are going with that. Unfortunately, since we live in an apartment, we can't paint the walls, but we are going to get some decals and stuff to put up. And though our registry is done, we are going back to the store to pick out things for the nursery that go with the theme so that people can buy some stuff for the baby shower if they want.

Let me know your ideas! I really liked thinking of a theme and I'm kind of sad that we've picked one already, but I really love the one we picked and I'm excited to pick things out for it.

I decided mine a few months ago and it really took me about five minutes. I am doing a story book, childrens literature theme. I have quotes from different authors that i'm stenciling on canvas, I'm making a stacked booked lamp for his little desk, peter pan clock, a flying key mobile from harry potter, Pooh corner map on the wall, my husband is making a signpost for the corner pointing to a bunch of fictional locations, Narnia, Hogwards, Neverland etc.. 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.

That sounds really cute!!

We are doing a modern mural of sorts, by wallpapering one plain wall, with this pretty, whimsical floral wallpaper I found http://www.houzz.com/photos/11200047...rary-wallpaper. And then I'm going to paint the other three walls.

I have a few bunnies already (just by chance, people have bought them for her), so we are going to get a bunny painting and call it done (along with some other pictures on the wall - like her name in and I love this https://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtsyVoice...tion_leftnav_1).

So I guess our theme is not really a theme...just whatever we love. haha

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.

We are having a little girl and our theme is yellow, grey and white Elephants with accents of teal and orange. Handmade bedding and handmade mobile which drops 60cm with floating elephant plushes and leaves. I'm on the hunt for suitable wall art ideas

My theme is pretty much Spring based and girly. Light pink walls, light green trim. I have painted one flowery wall mural and I am working on a tree. I will likely hang up or paint owls. I want to find natural looking tree branch shelves but so far not luck Dx

He'll be staying in our room for at least 9 months since we're in a 2 bedroom house, so we're re-doing our whole room in a Star Wars theme (Light vs Dark). We're not painting the walls either, so buying several decals to put over the crib and the opposite wall, and buying Star Wars fabric to do the crib bedding and accessories. Can't wait to get our tax return so I can drop some more money!

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.
