Nursery Ideas

Okay, confession. I'm a bit of an obsessive planner. Okay, a lot a bit. But I just prefer to plan rather then cross my fingers and hope for the best! Kill me.
So, even though we have about two months left until we find out what the sex is (I know, I'm dying!) I've started "browsing for nursery ideas. Mind you, I'm not huge into themes, so most of these pictures aren't themed at all, but these are all I have found so far. Just thought I'd share and if you have any ideas or pictures you love for nurseries, let me know and add the link in the comments!
P.S. I'll probably be making my own bedding, so I'm not restricted with that. I can pretty much make anything I can dream up, as long as I set my mind to it!

This is one of my favorites. Not too baby-ish that it won't grow up with her, and I'm loving the idea of "no pink" in the bedroom. She'll be covered in it, why not make the room free from it?

This one is my mostest fav one so far. Once again, no pink and I'm loving the crisp white with the bold red and light blue. Could also be used as a boy room if I changed some accessories and avoided floral

I like this room because it's really warm feeling and the pink isn't too pink, more like a soft rose color. So weird, I love pink normally, but I think since almost every baby girl room has pink, my rebellious side is coming out!

This one is similar to my favorite (with the white paneling on the walls) but used rose and pale yellow. So springy!

Okay, all of these boy rooms are themed, but do you know how hard it is to find kinds rooms without a theme? And girl rooms without pink? Murder.
Loving the cars on the walls, though. If I did this I don't think I'd make the bedding to match though. Too matchy matchy is not my thing
I like this one because it's not "beachy", it's nautical. Though a surfer room like Brooke Franco did for her boys would be super cute and fun! Love the navy stripes and bold red.

And of course, this post would not be complete without a cowboy room! But the more I think about it, the more I'm steering away from this. It seems too predictable for Pete's little boy to have a cowboy room, and I don't like to be predictable. I might have to fight him about this one though :)
Now it's your turn. Let me know what you think (as long as it's not "I hate all of these pictures!" That might hurt my feelings . . . )

I love love the first picture for a girl room!! And the cowboy room idea for a boy. I saw a really cute pillow in a cowboy room that had stiched on it little buck-a-roo. It was super cute.I also saw a way cute picture idea and I thought of you guys. The little newborn was inside daddys cowboy boot. SO CUTE! and Pete have a million boots. I will try to find it for you. I totally started thinking of ideas for the nursery when I found out I was pregnant too. Its so fun!

hayley, I can't believe the news! This is so exciting! You're going to be the greatest mommy! And I totally agree about steering away from themes. Much better to go with pretty patterns, and colors that you love. Please keep us updated on what you decide! And congratulations!

I'm exactly like you with the non-themed room thing. I'm getting ready to post Silas's new room - probably on Monday. We seem to have similar tastes, so I'm thinking you may like it! ;)

Congrats on the little one coming!!! How exciting.

And thank you so much for your words of encouragement this week.
