I'm trying to convince DH to do something like this since we're Team Green, so now I'm trying to look online for ideas on how to finish decorating it.
Anyone else have ideas yet?
The room we're using was painted green at the request of DH when we moved in, so I think we're going to keep it like that and lighten it up with the furniture and decor. I think we're doing either baby animals or owls and keep it neutral. I can see it in my head so hopefully it turns out how I imagine!
Forgot to add that we are team green
First off, OP- I love your nursery idea. It looks awesome.
We don't know if we are having a boy/girl yet (we are team find out, but we have a couple more weeks until we do find out). But we have decided to go with something like this: http://www.chiccheapnursery.com/2011/real-rooms/dark-and-colorful-baby-nursery/ (sorry- not clicky). We wanted something that could be easily changed from boy to girl since if we ever do this again, we will just move baby one out of the nursery, and move baby two in.
I love these ideas! I have always,nown I wanted to do primary colors, so we're going to use Skip Hop's Mod Dot bedding. ( http://www.skiphop.com/product/completesheet_moddot.html )
The room is already painted green, and I have dark brown furniture in there already.
Love the idea OP.
If it's a boy we're doing a Where the Wild Things Are theme. If it's a girl we are doing a yellow, grey, and pink nursery.
We did/are doing a beach theme. We knew we were going to have more than one child and I didn't want to redecorate each time so we picked a neutral theme for ours. I have different boat/water pictures up in the room and the bedding looks similar to this.

We're team green and I want to use these colors and see if I can find matching jungle theme things. Not sure if jungle stuff would match but I'd be okay with just using these colors because I am in love with them.
We're trying to keep it neutral but we're no fans of yellow and green usually becomes too much.
We're thinking dark blue ceiling with glow stars. These blue with clouds walls. Maybe an ocean/beach theme for bedding. Lots of blue but we both like blue. We can always add pink accents later if we need to .
Oh- I love all these ideas! I can't wait until people start posting pics of their nurseries!
Summer2122:I would honestly just do the basics and add girl/boy themed stuff afterwards.
I think I'm going to use this idea as well. Plus, it'll give me something to do the first couple of weeks of maternity leave when I'm still confined to the house.
We are team green and have had our nursery picked out well almost since the day we found out LOL...We are huge Disney buffs! SOOO. we are going with Lion King....if we have a boy it will be more animal focused and if its a girl, it will be more cheetah print focused. I just love earth tones so this worked out perfect!
Here's something similar to what I hope the Nursery will look like for our munchkin!
Team Green here. We're doing grey walls with white birch trees (I know, I know, it's popular, but they've been my favorite tree since I was a little girl so I'm really excited about this trend).
A white, low profile crib (probably Babyletto from Target), dresser, bookshelf, glider... the basics. I want to all of the accents in the room to be dark red... pillow, crib sheet, lamp shade. I love cardinals and plan on incorporating them throughout. I found some ADORABLE etsy mommy and baby cardinal prints that I think I'll be buying!
I was in love with this bedding, but DH vetoed :( http://www.target.com/p/migi-alphabet-bedding-collection/-/A-11133427 We were team green. I wanted to do molding like that on the wall in white, with pale yellow above. I still regret not doing it! We did a sock monkey theme instead:
I have an idea, but a lot depends on the sex.
Dd is moving upstairs this week, so I have to do her big kid room as well.
Since I'm an aw, this is dds nursery: http://www.chiccheapnursery.com/2011/real-rooms/real-room-whimsical-nature-themed-nursery-for-a-baby-girl/
The baby will share with DS until we build a house in the next couple years. His walls are a light-ish aqua, like the photo below. So I didn't want to go too girly with her stuff because it has to work with a toddler boy's things as well. I'm doing a white crib, and yellow and teal and white bedding. Here's my inspiration photo:
and here's the crib skirt fabric- I'm getting it custom made on etsy for $50.00-
and I just got a yellow/white gingham crib sheet from ebay from Pottery Barn Kids.
Then, I'll do pops of coral in the artwork/mobile, etc...DS's side has orange so I think it'll go well.
If I had a separate bedroom for baby girl, I'd do dove gray walls with white trim, and peach and blush accents.
