We decorated the nursery to our tastes, sans theme or cartoon characters (no offense if that’s your thing). We were team green so everything was gender neutral, and actually still is even though Dear Daughter is over a year old because we simply prefer it. I figure once another baby comes along she will have some clear preferences so I’ll take those into account when setting up her room.

Arriving late to the party, but I just wanted to say that as I kid/baby we were very poor and I never had my room. I always dreamt with having my own space and fill it with toys and colors, but I never had the chance because we were all sleeping in 1 room (parents, brother and I). I decided to give my baby his space and make his nursery fun and stimulating, make him feel that it’s his. When he grows up a little, he will decide what he wants and we’ll do it. We are moving to a small apartment (currently 6 months pregnant) and we bought him some colorful furniture and toys and we will paint it light mint, put some animal pictures on the wall and just make it fum for him without going all over the place. But if he wants a crazy colored space when he gets older, I will let him have it because I know how important it is for a kid to have it 🙂

Meh, I like nurseries that look like nurseries.  It doesn’t have to have cartoons to be child-centric, but in the end I wanted my daughter’s room to be a bright, happy, inviting space.  It’s full of bright colors and it makes me happy to be in there (and some day when she’s a bit older I hope that she’ll enjoy playing and spending time in that space that I designed with her in mind).
