I can't stand baby blue! But it's really hard to find nursery bedding for boys that doesn't have that color in there a little.
So I had to make my own.
We are going with a music/drum theme. Inspiration is Michael Miller's Groovy Guitar fabric in lagoon blue, lime/avacado green, black, white and grey!
I thought my MIL was going to have a heart attack when I mentioned "black and white" in his nursery colors. But we love it! HA!
No pix yet bc it's not done.
But look on etsy.com for ideas. There is tons of bedding there and most shops let you pick from ANY fabric out there!
Hey! I had MUCH fun decorating my team green nursery, I went with greens and yellows mostly....here's a link to pictures on my blog.
I think even if I did know the gender, I'd still do something similar, I'm not really into intense pinks and blues, anyway.
Good luck! (and I can't believe your baby's position in that picture, looks kind of uncomfortable, but I think he/she will be a great gymnast someday) :)
I am basically doing green and brown. I am painting walls green and have brown curtains. I needed gender neutral and loved the polka dots and stripes and opened the door for a green and brown room.
We never really did decide on a theme but things kind of came together on their own.
The house we moved into, the room was already painted a nice soft yellow. My dad gave me an antique sage green (maybe a tad lighter) rocking chair and we had to put some room darkening curtains up anyway and DH found some great ones in green.
We also have touches of dark brown.
We are not really doing a nursery theme, per say but more a room for the baby. We have vintage books, a few stuffed animals DH and I gave each other over the years and and old record cover of The Muppets Movie framed (love that movie).
Kind of sounds random but it really does work.
We are team green and did a tourquoise/teal color with lots of white trim and then green bedding.
We used the bananafish Joshua bedding set which is meant for a boy, but I thought was neutral enough in case it was a girl.
Link to my blog with pictures is in my siggy!

Im team green and it took me forever to figure out what I wanted to do for our nursery. I found this bedding from pottery barn http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/sweet-lambie-nursery-bedding-set/?catalogId=5&bnrid=3580801&cm_ven=GoogleBase&cm_cat=Shopping&cm_pla=Home%20page&cm_ite=Datafeed
A lot of people that reviewed it said they were having boy & girl twins and they really thought it was a good gender neutral bedding. I wanted to stay as far away from any yellow or green, my DH is a John Deere freak so I already have plenty of yellow and green items in my house. So the wall color is going to be like a dark-medium khaki color with white trim. I was even thinking of making the ceiling color darker than the walls but Im not sure about that yet. I guess the "theme" is going to be lambs but Im not going to go all out with that part Im just going to keep the theme confined to the bedding.
LO's nickname is Lightening Bug so we went with a Bug/Garden theme. We painted the walls yellow and I'm making a wall hanging with felt applique bugs and trees and flowers and things mixed in with the alphabet.
We're holding off on the rest of the decorations until Bug is born unless we can convince its very artistic uncle to make us some cool custom Lightening Bug art.
I hate baby blue and pink, so even if we did know what gender LO is now, we'd still have gone with green or yellow or primary colors.
we were team green first time around and this time too so we did a gender neutral theme. Our theme was basically sheep. It consisted of greens, creams, and blues. here's our nursery..
We're Team Green & we decided to do bright lime green walls (with white trim) and we went with a jungle animals theme. Our bedding is all very neutral (think white, beige) - it's the Cocalo Snickerdoodle set: http://www.cocalo.com/search.asp#results
We're also planning on putting up a decal: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62760813/monkeys-jumping-on-a-tree-wall-decal?ref=sr_gallery_8&ga_ref=auto&ga_search_query=monkey+wall+decals&ga_order=date_desc&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade
Team Green All the way! We did Black and white Damask print and polk a dot. We will throw in color after we know what the sex is....Purple if girl Green if Boy :-)
on etsy.com for ideas. There is tons of bedding there and most shops let you
pick from ANY fabric out there!
what I did - ordered bedding and curtains from an Etsy seller. We decided on
the Zoology Brown fabric by Michael Miller and we have espresso furniture in
the room. A friend of mine who is an artist painted a big tree on one wall
behind the crib and a giraffe on another wall. It looks great! Here's a pic of
We know it's a boy, and I have definitely embraced the Aqua Blue. However, the more I look at my tropical ocean inspired nursery, I feel it is also a gender neutral design for any ocean/beach lover. If it were a girl, I would have added hibiscus pink instead of orange to the color scheme.
The woodland and forest animal ideas on Etsy are too die for. Here is a link to one treasury that is absolutely precious!
my nursery progress
We are Team Blue, but still went with neutral colors because I'm not a fan of "themed" nurseries. I got a lot of inspiration from Project Nursery.
We are going with grays and yellows similar to this. It's very understate and serene.
Good luck with your nursery!

We're Team Green and chose this bedding, but painted the walls yellow. I thought it looked more boyish in the pictures, but now that it is in the nursery it's a lot more neutral. The "blue" is more of a turqoisey (spelling, sorry!) blue than it is a pale blue. We plan on using this bedding for any future kids.
This is our bedding:
We did the walls in Sherwin Williams Swimming (6764), and our glider is a chocolate & ivory paisley with large print. Our other nursery furniture is espresso colored. (We're team green, FWIW).
We are basing the colour scheme for the nursery off our wallpaper border.
