Hmmm which nursery theme to choose?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
We were going through the Babies R Us catalog and putting stuff on a gift registry and decided to go with an aquarium theme. Fishies are cool, and it was blue, and we're having a boy, so it all seemed to coordinate nicely, and the stuff was very cute.

But.... we bought some cute jungle animal type wall stickers a little while ago with the pan to use them in the baby room. I just remembered that this morning. So we can either change to a jungle/animal theme and use the wall stickers we bought, or keep with the cute aquarium/sea life theme.

What do you think?

Oh and we've only just done the registry, and nobody would have looked at it, or tried to buy anything off it as of yet.

Edit to add: And the wall stickers weren't hugely expensive, so it's not a BIG deal if we don't use them, but it'd be a shame not to.

Why not have both? Sorta a Land/Sea theme - one half is the sea, one half is the land/jungle.

After all the baby will learn about many different kinds of animals

Ooooh! What if you painted a waist-high line around the room that looked like a sandy beach... and above the line were some rolling green hills and a blue sky with a few puffy clouds... and below the line was an aqua-blue sea... jungle animals above, fishies below...?

That sounds like a cute idea!

If you have to go with just one though, I like the animals

That sounds awesome, but we're not doing any redecorating since we're renting. So we can only use accessories to decorate the room.

Question: do you have a guest bathroom that will eventually be "his" bathroom? You could do either theme in the bath and the other for the nursery. . .

(I'm kinda partial to Classic Pooh myself, so I shall abstain from voting.)

Nope, just one bathroom for everyone to use

Ooh, I like RicaLynn's idea! If there's a bath, that is. But if there isn't, I'd go with the animals, too -- for a tiny baby, warm furry critters seem a little friendlier than scaly wet ones!

I like the aquarium theme * whispers, that what I used for my kids...lol*

I like the animal theme, that is what i did for my boys. But if you really like the aquarium and it feels right (ask PJ) then don't worry about the stickers.

Do what feels right. Blue is very soothing!

I like both Sarah, I am no help! Sorry! Both suggestions are awesome though!

BTW, if I'd have a boy, it would be a construction site theme.... lots of orange....

I like the idea of doing both, and was actually going to suggest that myself. Even if you just do, say, a corner of the room as above water with the animals, it would be very cute!

I think the jungle/animal theme is a cute idea (especially because you already have the stickers) and you could decorate the room with adorable stuffed animals

Ok, I just went and looked at the wall stickers again... they're too cute not to use I think. And we don't really have anything else to put on walls, so I guess we'll change to the jungle animal theme. And I LOVE zoos, so he should too....

I love both but this should not be a surprise the aquaruim theme is my vote

Jungle theme, of course, so you can have BIG CATS!

Well I voted for the underseas theme! All my friends have either done jungle or planes/cars/etc. I've not seen anyone do an aquatic them!

I like the jungle idea. My nursery (nigh on forty years ago) was done in jungle theme in animals, and I can tell you-my only memories prior to say, two years old, are of our German Shepherd, our cat, and that jungle theme wallpaper...

I voted for the jungle theme.
Living in florida there are soooooooo many places that have the aquarium themes. I did Baby Looney Tunes for my oldest and Teddy Bears for my youngest.. But I like the Jungle theme

Maybe you could paint the inside of his closet a nice green and use the wall stickers in there? That way, you'd stick with your original plan for the room and also be able to have a bit of the jungle
