for a few months now (i’m 16 wks) DH and I have sorta comprised on doing a super mario theme for our LO…but lately i’ve been having second thoughts….
the only inspiration I’ve been able to find:
i’ve found other images online for super mario themed nurseries but these 2 were the ones DH and I liked the most….
but i’m so torn, because there isn’t much super mario baby stuff out there….and i think i’d prefer to have the same theme for both the nursery and when we go register though it wouldn’t be the end of the world to not have the same theme (i realize we’ll probably get mixed-matched stuff but still…i’ve already had family members hounding me on what ‘theme’ we’re gonna be doing for LO)….is it wierd to do one theme for all baby stuff and then super mario for just the nursery??
just wanna add that i know super mario or any type of ‘gaming’ theme for a baby is not everyone’s thing but DH is a gamer and it’s our first, so I do wanna try to meet him halfway somehow…

DH and I are gamers. We’re not doing a gaming theme for my baby when I have one. Also, that nursery screams “boy” to me, so if you end up having a girl…?
I would doubt you will be able to find crib sheets and that type of thing. Also, that shelf looks custom. That’s a huge undertaking, especially if you’re not 100% sold on the idea.
Personally, I would go with a more traditional nursery. Then if you have a boy, he can have that room when he’s a little older. I think that would be an awesome room for a toddler or even a kid more kindergarten age.

What a cute idea! I love Mario, I think touches of it would be better though than the room being all out Mario, bc it will be a lot harder to change it if you so choose.

We went for a generic Safari theme for our LO’s nursery. We knew people would have an easier time finding things.
When he gets older, we wil probably do a Star Wars, Ottawa Senators, or some kind of gaming theme.
I would wait til your LO is older to do the Mario Bros room.

I guess it depends on when you want to redo the room later on. If you are okay redecorating in 4-5 years when your LO is old enough to have an opinion and want things that don’t match you theme I say go for it. If you want this to be a room that lasts until their teenage years, I would pick a more neutral theme, and something that is easier to update gradually.

I’m not into video games but even I think this is a super cute theme! I think you should go for it. But remember that just because you have a theme does not mean that every inch of the room has to have mario on it. I would do some murals and little accessories in mario theme. Then for bedding, curtains and rug, choose bold colors that pull from the mural or other accents, and that go with the game, (red, green, etc). If you go for a girl room you can focus more on Peach and bring in light pink, light blue, etc.
Also, all your other baby stuff that you register for does not need to have mario on it. Just find things that coordinate.
Here are some photos I found on line that I think do it very well and have a nice balance.
