    Darling Husband 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.

    Super Mario Munchkin Room, I wanted a fun, unique baby room with comfortable, bright colors for my little man. Super Mario Bros. was a favorite of mine when I was growing up, so I decided to create a world based around the game. I hand-painted everything except the smaller details, like Mario and the mushrooms. I had those created by the talented Valerie Solosky. (You can find her store on ebay.), Nurseries Design
