More Crib Stuff

So I have a thing for blue and brown. My mother in law searched the globe for me to have the perfect blue and brown bed set for myself.

Do you think there'd be any way you could accept a blue and brown room as femenine if need be? If there were, say, blue and brown dresses and things of that nature on the walls?

I really heart the brown stuff, and I don't think we're going to be finding out the sex of this one.
P.S. This set is usually $250 and I found it for $75.

I think you can do what ever you want, I LOVE brown and blue together, even for girls. I like how in that picture there is the white wall with hints of blue and brown accents. The cool thing is you can always accent the brown and blue theme with pink and green accent colors as well because they all go together. I also love that furniture!!

I think blue and brown for girls it totally acceptable. It's your kid, you get to do what you want!

However, as a child who was mistaken for a boy until I was approximately 11.5 years old - I prefer that you do not dress her in all blue.

P.S. Your pregnancy widget is super creepy today. Eek. You growing a seahorse?

P.S. I like the set, too.

(Why not three comments from me today? Sorry about manhandling your blog.)

I for one am quite excited that you two crazy kids aren't finding out the gender. Is Lou-dog absolutely certain it's another girl?

Louis is 100% positive it's a girl and I'm 100% it's a boy. Hey, one of us will be right.

(Thanks for confirming I can do whatever I want with colors guys.)

I'm painting the walls in my nursery blue, with perhaps one brown wall. The bedding I bought is brown, blue and green with a tiny bit of yellow.

We don't know what we're having, nor are we finding out. And I find this color combo perfect for either a boy or a girl.

(I grew up with a blue room!)

AthenaBee said...

Yay Sarah! I'm even MORE happy to hear of some one else doing this for their room!

Does it make it seem any less real not knowing what it is? I'm hoping it will help me that we have a name picked out that goes either way, so I don't have to call it "It" the whole time.

Just want to echo what everyone else is saying -- I love the idea of a blue and brown room for a little girl. I absolutely love those colors, and that room is AWESOME. I love the wood floors.

Brown and blue are gorgeous and perfectly acceptable for any gender. Miss J had an adorable brown and blue outfit last winter and she looked positively feminine in it.

Sarah said...

How would not knowing the sex make this any less real? No way, it's still so VERY REAL! It just means that we are waiting a little longer for another surprise. There are plenty of reasons to find out via ultrasound and plenty of reasons to wait and see it just depends on what you feel like doing! And it's definitely not difficult to decorate without knowing!

I tell you what, I LOVED knowing the gender of our baby. I loved being able to call her by her name. Labor was such a crazy ride, that I loved knowing that one thing was for sure: Lila was coming.

It helped me.
