So we bought or first items for the babies room, and I'm excited to tell someone about it! I'm from the Jan 10 ddc!
Amazon has quite a few bedding sets 70% or more off! I found the French Toile in Green, we both love it. Our idea is to decorate around that and Van Gogh's Starry Night (a friend of ours painted it for us), it's dark blues. We're not finding out what we're having, so for now we'll keep it classy and gender neutral. I would like to paint - but I'm not sure what color. I was thinking a sage to army green (my fav color)! But looking for ideas...
I love the starry night painting and decorating around that theme....however....to be honest...I think the bedding looks pretty girly. I think that toile style is generally more feminine....you may want to make sure you are comfortable with that being gender neutral enough for a rough and tumble little boy should you have a little boy. I think its gorgeous but for a girl....Sorry

I never visit this board and just happened to pop in here tonight for the first time... I actually totally disagree I think the toile looks lovely for a boy or girl in that colour. There's plenty of time down the road when they're older to do a different colour, but for crib/nursery bedding I think it's beautiful for either gender!
Christina and Jonies - that's what we were thinking. We won't make the room girly with it if we have a boy, we'd do trees, and sky or something. Forest is a good idea!
The idea is to not be matchy matchy and all typical nursery. (ME=anti-tradition!)
also - the nursery is more for the parents than baby! All the baby needs is a place to sleep, it doesn't care what the bedding looks like!
I'm still brainstorming how it fits with starry night
I give you credit for not finding out the sex and doing gender neutral - I could never do it!!!! I think the forest idea is a good one - maybe you could paint a mural on the wall that is trees....I also saw a good website with art work for a modern nursery with cute "tree and nature" themed art work.
