When you see this, do you think boy or girl?
I LOVE it. Hubby is just worried that it's too girly. It's blue...
Tell me honestly what you think. It's listed under gender neutral.

I think it's beautiful, but the pattern on the dust ruffle may lean a little more toward girl than boy. Really beautiful tho.

I say boy. But it's close enough to neutral that a few personal touches added when the baby is born will swing it.

Just keep in mind that bumpers are no longer considered safe equipment for babies. The same for quilts, etc. If you feel you have to have a bumper then get the breathable one.

Hubby's compromise is without the bumper anyway. He doesn't like the bows.

I think it is on the boy side of gender neutral. I really like it. I also do not like rugged baby boy rooms with trucks and such.

My first thought was boy but I could see how the pattern is a little girly. But I don't think a baby boy's room has to be 100% boy. I think it is a beautiful nursery!

To be perfectly honest, nurseries aren't really representative of the tastes of the baby. What do they know? I say make the nursery that you want that looks pretty or whatever and then wait the 3 years it will take for the kid's opinion about paint color to matter

If you think it's pretty (I like it!) with the bows your baby boy won't know. If you go without the bows your baby girl won't miss them

Its beautiful and I think it works for a baby boy but I don't think the theme will transition well into toddlerhood when your guy starts really developing a personality.You'll probably have to redecorate. I think that's a nice "for mom to enjoy" room.

I think that if the pattern was with the same grey shades but stripes or chevron it would look much more like a boy. Very pretty colors!

I think it is too flowery and I don't like the bows. That is totally JMO. I have a DD but her room was all greens and tans and some hits of purple, no frills whatsoever. I am an old tomboy

As a PP said, it is really more for you than the baby, so you should decorate it to make you happy, don't stress about whether you are sufficiently imposing traditional gender identity at this stage, kwim??

I think it's fine for a boy. You can add other things to make it more boyish.

I think it's really nice and I agree with others.. you can change it up once toddler develops a particular personality you can draw from.
