I am very early in the process, but I am trying to pick up odds and ends here and there to help with budgeting. I've always thought that if I had a girl, I would want to decorate the room with a fairy theme. If I had a boy, I would want to use a Peanut's Gang (Charlie Brown) theme.

Then I saw the Carter's John Lennon line of nursery items. I fell in love. I love music, and I loved the fact that everything had music notes or song lyrics on it. Of course the line was discontinued, and I am buying the set piece by piece from ebay. So far I have the changing table organizer, the two lamps, mobile, and some of the bedding. It is becoming more evident that I will not be able to get everything that I need with this design, so I was wondering what you guys thought of mixing themes? The room is lilac now (we will only paint it if it is a boy) so it would be perfect for the fairy theme. I just don't know if it mixes with the jungle/music theme of the items I already have. I don't really like other items that are jungle/animal themed that are not from this line (I was surprised at how much I fell in love with this line)

Here are some pictures of what I already have:




sorry the picture of the lamp is small...

What do you ladies think? Can I combine this theme with another?? We do not yet know if the baby is a boy or girl- I just like to plan ahead and be prepared for all possibilities! Thanks!

What of the bedding pieces do you have? I don't really think this would combine too well with fairies myself. I would do some solid colored stuff to fill in what you don't have.

I agree, I think solid colors would probably look the best, IMHO.

I completely agree! Solid colours would definitely work best with the jungle theme.

I have the Lennon Real Love line. It will not mix with fairies. If I couldn't find something I just used solid colors. I found some Wallies on Ebay and put them on the dresser. We live in an appartment so we can't paint the walls. I hope to have baby after we move into a house. Then I plan on painting the room a soft yellow or blue. I mostly have Lennon stuff I found on Ebay or second hand shops in the room for decorations. I love Giraffes and have a collection of stuffed ones that are in that room.




PS I'm a doll collector so some of my dolls are sitting in the crib till we need it for a baby.
