Nursery suggestions

Hey all,

We are turning one of our guest rooms into our nursery. It's already a yellow color kind of like this:

We want to keep the yellow color because we think it could work whether we have a boy or a girl. When we find out the sex, we'd like to do a little decorating with some accent colors in the curtains and pictures.

Does anyone have suggestions for colors that might work? Suggestions for either sex would be good. :D

    I think you need to figure out an idea of bedding and go from there.  We also are using room that is painted about that color of yellow.  We are going to use some reds, browns and blues.  We are using a neutral theme.

    I saw the cutest neutral yellow nursery with bedding that was a nursery rhyme theme ex. Cow jumping over the moon, dish running away with the spoon, humpty dumpty the whole nursery followed this theme it was adorable and worked well for boy or girl. I wanna say I found it on the land of nod, not sure anymore because we found out we are team blue and I'm
    In love with elephants so we're doing a blue elephant themed nursery

    I think green, blue, and browns are great colors with yellow.

    After doing some reading, I don't think we're going to get a bedding set for the nursery. We won't be using a bumper, and the blanket won't be used really since we won't keep it in the crib with the baby. Maybe it would be used later, but I plan on making a baby blanket anyway. We'll be buying the fitted crib sheets, but those can be in any color really.

    I like the colors you've picked. They sound nice. I was thinking browns or blues too, especially if it's a boy.

    I've been liking this color combo a lot lately!  Land of Nod has some super cute yellow and grey sheets that I would totally buy if I was a FTM.

    I'm doing yellow, lime and either raspberry or turquoise (depending on the sex). I'm also doing a polka dot and chevron thing...I'm just not big on the classic baby themes.

    This sounds super cute!  Right now the plan for our nursery is to do Grey and white with turquois - then add accent colours when baby is here (depending on gender)..

    I'm also loving the yellow and grey that's popular right now. And the blue color that almost looks grey is really nice with yellow too. These colors could go for either gender too which is great. 

    I also really like nautical themes for a boy's room so you could do navy and white with it and get sail boat decor :)

    For a girl I like the idea of accenting with raspberry colored stuff. That'd be super pretty

    I really love the yellow and grey combo.

    DD's room was already yellow, but we didn't start decorating until we knew what we were having. You could do green, and then once you know what you're having accent with either pink or blue. DD's room is very garden-y feeling w/ different shades of pink and green accenting the yellow. For a boy, I think the yellow walls would work well w/ either a nautical theme or even (some may not like this) like a pond theme (w/ frogs and ducks).

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:26-27&33-34

    I hear ya abotu the whole bedding set.  Everyone is different when it comes to this.  But for us we are doing our based off a bedset we say and liked.  Plus it fits our situation. We are doing Artic theme for this baby.  With seals, whales, polar bears ect.  This baby is a FET and since it was frozen we thought it would go well boy or girl.

    This is where our idea came from to help figure out ours

    I plan on doing a yellow & grey nursery, but with grey walls and yellow ceiling. I love yellow & grey together and it can work for either sex. I've found bedding that I love for both boys and girls (and neutral too) in this color combo.

    I posted a link a few days ago about deciding on bedding. One of the ones I liked a lot was grey and tan/yellow. See link below:

    This set is really cute. I love your idea for a theme. I think it will be great. :)

     

    Thanks again for all the suggestions, ladies. I really am liking the yellow and grey suggestions as well. This has really helped inspire some ideas for ways we can make our yellow nursery cute.
