I was planning on doing a hot air balloon theme if I had a girl (ended up being a boy) - so I obviously think it works for either. I was planning on this for over the crib in the pink/teal color scheme:
I wouldn't be using necessarily these colors, and wouldn't be using all the pieces- just coming up with ideas.
DH's only idea for a boy is "dinosaurs" and I told him that's not happening- haha.
I'll post pics when it is finished!
I love the idea! I've also seen a hot air balloon print in the Walmart fabric section if you wanted to make some cute curtains or a dust ruffle for the crib.
You'll have a lot of blue because everything will likely have a blue sky background, but so? I don't think that makes it too boyish at all. Babies like lots of bright contrasting colors, not the typical pastel colors that we tend to paint nurseries. I say go for it, and stimulate that wee brain!
i LOVE it! I was looking for a different theme for my first born's room. This isn't that girlish nor boyish so it works for either! The pics are great, too. Thanks for the idea
