Getting the nursery ready?

    I've read in a few of the to find out sex/or not threads people saying they want to get the nursery ready. I was just wondering why those people feel they can't do that without knowing the sex of the baby.

    I take it you want to go pink or blue, but I was just wondering what made you decide to do that?

    We're staying team yellow and still getting the nursery ready well before baby arrives.

    Has anyone found out the sex and still decorated the nursery in gender-neutral colours?

    When I actually get a house and have a nursery I'm not going to paint it pink. I think I'll go for a pale yellow and mint green.

    If we had found out the sex we still wouldn't be decorating in pink/blue - I don't buy in to the gender stereotyping thing. As it happens there's no way we will have the room ready before baby comes (but baby will be with us for months anyway). We've chosen some wallpaper with a bunnies/woodland sort of image on it. It's watercolour so it quite pale beige, greens and blues and is very cute!

    Our nursery is going to be blush pink and golds, so yes it will be pink but I'm really not into the bright colours.

    we chose zeddy and parsnip from mamas and papas before we knew he was a boy so it'll be pretty neutral, and the walls will be a creamy yellow colurs with a border, its a small room so cant go too dark, we've got wood flooring and a big zeddy fluffy rug to go in it.

    Thanks for the replies so far. It's interesting that so many peeps are going for neutral rooms. Sometimes on this site it does feel like I'm surrounded by pink/blue fans!

    We're on team yellow and plan to stay that way after the scan next week. The room we will be using as a nursery was only decorated this spring so we don't want to redecorate again so soon. We have wall paper on one wall which is a bit girly but the other walls are just painted cream I'm only going to use cream & white baby stuff in there and maybe add some more gender specific accessories once bean arrives.

    We chose the 'I love my bear' theme, even getting the paint colour matched!! Before finding out if babba was a boy.

    I'm having a girl but I actually have a yellow/periwinkle blue nursery. I finally got everything up tonight and I am SO glad I have a blue theme. Everything else she has is pink, I think it will be nice to bring her into a nice light, calming enviornment. I'm a firm believer that calm colours means a calm baby!

    We went with a beige/pinkish color, not super bright, but still girly looking, and it was on the paint marks as bieng a "calm" shade :D The rest of the decor is peter rabbit and is all beige, light blue etc...

    I just liked knowing it was a girl so I could make it pretty for her :D

    We found out the gender and his room is a bone color with seafoam green. I didn't feel like doing the traditional blue. I did that with my first son and he grew out of it and I ended up having to re-do his whole room- freakin expensive!

    They wont let us know here in the hospital but even if they did i would still do it in neutral colours as they have got these things wrong in the past. So its neutral colours for me, the walls anyway as i dont do pink or blue walls anyway. After that I will put in some colour.
