Hi,
It's not exactly a nursery, but we're remodeling our entire house (and get this, baby #3 is due in 46 days. Ack!), and my 2.5 year old DD and 18 month old son are going to be sharing a room.
I'd like the room to blend together nicely, but how do you decorate for both a boy and girl, and still have some gender separation going on?
Thanks in advance!

One way might be to do an animal theme with the more feminine animals being on the girl's side and the more masculine ones being on the boy's side.

Are there brother/sister or girl/boy cartoon character pairs you might use? Minnie Mouse on one side and Mickey on the other or Minnie, Daisy, & co on the girl side and Mickey, Donald, and co on the other. Raggedy Ann and Andy?

You could do a royalty room, Over his bed "our sweet prince" and over hers "our sweet princess" paint the toom like rolling hills and put castles on it... really you could do anything. Make it a bright primary colors room (like crayola kind of theme), or I knew a little boy who had a field theme. She fixed white pickets around the room for the fence and it looked like a room right out of peter cotton tail.

A garden theme could also work.....bugs, turtles, and frogs on his side and butterflies, ladybugs, and flowers on her side.

I've always LOVED Sesame Street and did my kid's room in those characters!

I would probably just choose simple colors that go well together. I'm all about being able to grow with whatever I buy. My son LOVES the movie Cars (and I mean LOVES...) but I won't decorate his room in it because he probably won't want to watch it every day in a year.

I would go with a gender neutral (like brown, yellow or green) and then do pink accents on one side of the room and blue on the other.
