    I know it's sooo early but i've been thinking of what to do with the spare room for baby's arrival. I want to keep the baby's sex a surprise so i've been thinking of a jungle theme (nice and neutral) - what do you all think? Have any of you had any ideas?

    We're going with neutral Winnie the Pooh stuff and really colourful toys etc. My mum has kinda decided the theme with what she's been buying us, but I'm more than happy because I love Pooh Bear!!

    I think thats a lovely theme. I do prefer the neutral themes to plain pink or blue.
    I havent given it any thought as we've decided bubs will sleep in our room with us. Saves some money that does!! Our room is pink already, and I feel like im having a girl so job done!

    oohh loving jungle themes - we were toying with getting the jungle chums coordinated range from babys r us

    http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Babies-R-Us/Bathing/Changing-Mats/Jungle-Chums-Changing-Mat(0021574)

    or the one from dunelms

    But we are going with yellow on two walls (lemon fizz colour got it last night yay) and either white or lemon tinted white on the other two walls with a rainbow mural ending at each cot (so they are our pots of gold) and rainbow crystals on teh window. We have some blackout curtains with various nursery type pics on them so will be getting some stickers for the wardrobe too but may wait to see what flavour they are before choosing them so we can 'gender' them up a little lol

    I LOVE jungle though its fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like the jungle theme as well. We're going to find out the sex, but prefer a more neutral look for the nursery. We even painted our 'guest room' yellow with plans of it becoming the nursery before I even got my BFP.

    Well our small room is painted a bluey greeny colour, I call it teal? At the moment it is a bit of a 'chuck junk in it' room, so it will need a bit of a clear out, but in order to do that we will need to clear the loft out. We have been meaning to do this job for a couple of years so this will be a good excuse for a clear out up there too. Not sure about theme, was thinking of perhaps neutral - I have seen a lovely range in the next catalogue called Dylan and Daisy. A bear and a donkey and all browns and beiges. Maybe something like that, but haven't looked round at anything else yet.

    We have our nursery already planned out (since before we started ttc), we want the gender to be a surprise and everything to be neutral because we want a few kids and want everything to be able to be used for all of them. Our nursery is going to be green and yellow walls with black furniture and froggies, turtles and snails are the theme. Although I have changed a couple times, but some sort of animal theme.

    Winnie the Pooh. Always knew it would be Winnie the Pooh. I have an unhealthy obsession collecting Eeyore things lol I've started looking for crib bedding, but I'm having a hard time finding something I like.

    Well if I'm having a girl I would like to decorate with cherry blossoms. There's a bedding set at babies R us that I really like. And I have no idea if its a boy. I already used my theme last time with DS. His room is decorated with super mario brothers.
