It’s still really early, but I’m feeling icky from first trimester nausea and decided to day dream a bit… I’ve been in love with this bedding since before we even started TTC (I actually have curtains in my kitchen in the flowery fabric!) and I’m hoping to be team green, but I’m wondering if this would be too girlie?
What do you think?
Here’s the stock picture: (I would want the walls a similar color, though there is only one window so I probably wouldn’t use the flowery fabric on the windows too)
And here are two bedding options I worked out: (I like the idea of the chevron to balance out the floral)
this 2nd bed skirt may be too busy… not sure…
I would like wall decor similar to the stock picture, I would probably balance out the floral with maybe chevron curtains (or just plain white/cream), plain lamp shades and maybe some kind of neutral coordinating pillow for a glider?
But I’m wondering is it just too girlie overall? Or do you think it would be balanced for a boy as well?
Obviously once the baby is born we could “boy” or “girl” it up with small accessories if we needed too, but just right off the bat.. What do you think?

I think it’d work out just fine for a little boy or girl. I voted “just right”.

wandering_gypsy: I think it’s girly but that’s irrelevant. Soon enough you’ll be so preoccupied with poop and spit up you won’t notice the decor.

I think it will work for either. Besides, kids only perceive things as “boy or girl” if you teach them that way.

If you skip the flowery fabric it can be awesome for a boy 🙂 I love the theme though

The flowery fabric is “girly” imo.

Aquaria: lol very true. I also feel like since I’m going to be the one spending the most amount of time in there (that will remember the time, baby won’t remember any of it) I might as well go with something I really like, I’m hoping to breastfeed so I want something I’ll enjoy being around.
Thanks for all the feedback ladies, I’m definitely not a pink/purple person but my style is still pretty feminine, it’s hard for me to figure out what isn’t actually too girlie without being plain. lol
Keep the feedback coming! 🙂

wandering_gypsy: Ooo, I love it. I don’t think it’s too girly, especially if you do the chevron curtains. The floral pattern for the bedding isn’t a super frilly, girly floral anyways. I think I like the first bedding option better, too, with the understated cribskirt and the blue edging. But either way, I think it’s appropriate for a girl or boy 🙂

I think it might be a little girly, but not overly so. Plus, baby stuff is “cute” whether it’s meant for boys or girls, so I almost feel like anything baby neutral could be considered “girly” if you think about it enough, since it’s all so cute!

I think its neutral enough and very peaceful looking! Once baby is here, people will inevitably buy little girl or boy trinkets and that will add to the decor

I don’t find it too girly; I think the flowery pattern is balanced with the overall color pallette and other elements, like the chevron curtain.

I’d stay away from flowers to be truly neutral. Great colors though! Love the chevron. 🙂

I think it’s fantastic. It screams adorable baby, but not a specific gender (imo).

if I had to guess a gender based on the photo I would guess it was for a girl. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was for a boy either.

Not too girly. It is very babyish. I really like the blue and yellow scheme. I am going for a team green nursery as well and will likely use a simiar color scheme in darker hues. The wall paint for our nursery is Chesapeake Blue by Benjamin Moore.
