A friend of mine will be finding out the sex of her baby soon and so she has been discussing the nursery and how to decorate it a lot lately. I love interior design so this is something I have a lot of interest in, and sometimes daydream about for myself in the future.
So I figured I’d come here and see what others did for their “themes”, or what colors did you use/fun design ideas/anything you’d like to share if you didn’t have a specific theme to the nursery. And please post pictures so we can see!

I am nowhere close to having kids but work in the interior design industry and day dream about my future daughters nursery when I’m bored haha. I have two ideas that I keep going back to and I’m sure these will change in the next 5 years before I have kids lol. But I would do a gold print wall paper behind the crib and then paint the walls a very faint coral or aqua.
Kinda like this-
The other is mermaid theme with these colors-

I did like a nautical/sailboat/lighthouse theme. I went thrifting for most things, made a little bunting banner thing, drew/painted some pictures to frame, that sort of thing. I used mostly reds, navy, light blue, and white.

We did jungle/Lion King. I have a little girl, but that was my plan regardless of gender.

My son’s nursery was an ‘alpine forest’ theme. I couldn’t paint or hang anything on the walls at my old rental so they where just a nuetral grey colour but I had lots of pine tree and bear themes ornaments/toys in his room. When I move I think I’m going to go with a jungle theme but that will depend on what he wants because by the time I move he will almost be 2 and will most likely want to decide for himself.

The most beautiful nursery I’ve seen was for the daughter of a friend of mine who is french, and it was all very.. french. There was no real theme to it, I guess, but everything was stylish and a little vintage, and very dreamy. And white, there was so much white in that nursery: it astounded me she could keep it so clean and white.
I most likely will do something like that–I’m not much of a “theme” person (e.g. didn’t really have a color scheme at the wedding). But then again, I also play with the idea of doing woodland creatures/forest theme. 🙂
I’ll figure it out when I’m pregnant and having heavy nesting urges. 😛

I’m not really into themes. But our nursery will be grey, white and mint. White furniture, a nice fluffy grey area rug, lots of grey blankets, swaddles, changing pad covers, etc. and then a few pops of mint in the blankets and mobile and such. Once the baby is born and we know the sex we’ll add some pops of coral/pink or more blues.

I’m not a mom but I always daydream of what my future kid’s room will look like! My first idea was elephant/safari but not cartoon-y animals, more modern. Sort of like this:
Then I thought of honey bee themed, also very modern, with pale yellow and gray colors and honeycomb shaped floating shelves and these adorable curtain holdbacks:
Or doing a traditional baby lamb/baby bunny theme with lots of cream and white, with a fluffy sheep mobile and lots of cute baby stuffed animals.
I also really like the “nordic” looking stuff that’s becoming more popular on pinterest. Lots of natural light wood and basic colors/patterns, lots of white.
ETA: Also, enchanted forest for a little girl would be so cute! With lots of green tones and purple flowers, toadstools, and moss covered things, and fairies everywhere like a fairy mobile.

We were team green for our twins so it had to work either way.
It is aqua and dark purple and monkey and elephant themed.
