I'm pretty blessed...we have 3 bedrooms...an office and a loft so at least I don't have to give up any space that's currently being used for other purposes in order to do a nursery. We just moved into our house in January so really nothing is in order yet. So I'm going to start by painting the guest bedroom and then the future nursery. I figured I'd have guests before a baby would come into the picture so that's coming first.

I'm doing an elephant themed nursery that's gender neutral in browns and greens. White walls though. Just as long as the awful yellow that is currently there is gone I'll be happy. Also doing no VOC paint.

We have a very tiny office and a very tiny spare room, and things will have to be shuffled A LOT to get baby into this house, especially since we need to keep one room as the office because hubby is in school for 3 more years. I think we'll move the litter boxes from the spare room into the office, pack up all the bookcases and store them, and have the spare room for wardrobe, crib and change table/dresser. There is an area in our bedroom that we can put a bassinette/small crib, so baby will be in there with us for the first year or so anyway.

But once hubby is done school buying a house needs to become first priority!!!

Our current office is a pale pistachio green - this will be our nursery one day. My husband loves birds, and I've grown to love them too, so we'll probably do baby birds/nests as the theme to the room. Patterns change so much over time, so a lot of it will depend on what's out there when we're pregnant!

Daisey- Do you have any pics of the room? I was thinking of that scheme but wasn't sure how it would turn out,

Our future nursery is currently our junk room. We have 3 bedrooms...ours, the guest room, and this junk room. We've started clearing some of the junk out of it although with our fertility issues we're not sure when it will be needed. (We know we'll have a baby there eventually...either biological or adopted, so we're not worried that it will never be used!) The room is already painted this really beautiful green color and we have this awesome antique etched glass mirror in there. Eventually, we'll just add the furniture and baby and we'll be good to go!

The future nursery is currently our spare bedroom. We just moved into the house 6 months ago and as we hope to get happy baby news soon (we've been trying for 4 months now) we are already taking steps to make it baby friendly. I have always wanted to do a nursey in a pale mint green and pale yellow (gender neutral - a plus because I don't want to find out the baby's sex before birth) so we painted the room a beautiful pale mint green - and have gotten so many compliments on the color already. I've already got a crib set picked out that I found online but have forced myself to wait to buy it until we know we've got a baby on the way.

I think I'll have to give up my scrapbooking room (not that I'll mind or have time to sb anymore!) and I'd love to have a dog theme- maybe a green and brown so it'll work for boy or girl...

His thought is to keep the crib in the office/nursery while the child is an infant, until we figure out a more permanent solution. We are in the process of turning our basement into a fourth bedroom, and at that point we will have an additional space to work with. The child would mostly just be sleeping in the space, and doing all other activities in other parts of the house.

But I still would like a designated space for my baby :)

Katiemouse, the house thing has been such a huge source of stress it my life, so hurray! Maybe now my mind will tell my body "ok, she can go into nesting mode, give her something to nest for".

Hmm a nursery/office sounds a little impractical. Does he work from home where he's always in the office or is it just a room to hold stuff? I would hate for baby to start crawling and pull a keyboard down or chew cords or something like that.

We've got a couple different rooms in the house that would make a good nursery. My favorite is currently the computer room/office. It's the perfect size for a nursery set, and right across the hall from our room. Only problem is, my hubby is a computer guy and doesn't want to give up his space. He wants to have an office/nursery combo room, which I think is absurd, although I agree it's somewhat practical.

The other possibility is the room that is currently our guest room, which I just got set up and kinda want to keep. I originally thought about doing a nursery/guest room combo, but after I got the bed in there, I realized there's not really enough room to put a crib.

I've been really attached to the idea of gray lately, so I think I'm going to do a white/silver/gray nursery, regardless of sex. I've even got some interesting ideas of "art" to put into the babies room (with the help of friends and family). I'm so ready to have a baby...now if only my body would cooperate!

Fun topic :) We bought our house two years ago and we actually picked it out with future children in mind. The top floor has tree bedrooms and two are "spare" rooms at the moment, either could be the nursery but I'm guessing the one closest to the main bathroom will be the one we choose. When the time comes we will have to paint and maybe change the carpet but we won't be TTC until this summer so I have time to think about it all. Exciting times!

PS I love the blog YIYEHTOV, I'm going to keep checking on it for design ideas!

We finally are moving into a house (in two months anyways) so the babys room will be right next to the master bedroom. When the baby is newborn I'm hoping to put the crib in our bedroom if space permits, otherwise I might just sleep in babys room (I'm weird) for a while.
It will intially be a guest bedroom, so I need to figure out what I want to do with a base color on the wall that can be guest bedroom to nursery. Then I think I'm going to focus on decals that can be easily removed as she/he gets older.

edit: I love that blog...reading now

I think know which room will be the nursery, and I think I have paint colors picked out in my head. We just bought our first apt and are moving in two weeks!!

Now I'm just trying to decide if I should make the "nursery" my home office for starters, or if I should leave it empty for starters. I'm kind of superstitious about starting to decorate it or anything, and we don't plan to TTC until July/August. Any thoughts? I work from home so I need an office, and I'm thinking it might be better to get a more permanent solution from the start rather than move my office later... but then again, why wouldn't I use a whole room for my office it I can, esp since need for a nursery is at LEAST a year away? Ah, decisions. :)

We are going to have to do a big switcheroo in our house when we finally get pregnant and close to the baby coming. DSs room and the spare room are both downstairs and ours is upstairs. Baby will get what is now the spare room, dining room will become living room and living room will be our bedroom. whoo. I have two ideas for room decor. One would be baby forest animals, or Sooner stuff. The room is already dark green and animals are more unisex than sports memorabilia...but I do love me some football.

I know the room, it's the only other room on my top level and it's next to the master bedroom. I don't plan on decorating until I know the sex, because I do want to do a theme. But I really should start clearing stuff out to make way. Joe and I talked a little last night about spring cleaning (now to see it actually happen. ;)

I've got the room picked out ~ When we moved into our new house I knew immediately that it would be the perfect nursery...it's small, but not too small and it's right next to the master bedroom. Right now it's used for storage and the walls are white - As soon as I'm prego and find out what the sex is, we'll start to decorate. I've already got the ideas in mind for themes and colors for a boys or girls room! I can't wait to deocorate it!!

I have the room picked out too, I knew as soon as we moved in which it would be and the lady who had our house before us left behind beautiful white curtains and an oatmeal coloured carpet that is perfect for a nursery. I'm pretty sure I want to know the sex when we conceive but I may change my mind so I'm planning neutral colours and I like the idea of neutral animals too like teddy bears. I don't want it to be too babyish as I plan on the little guy or girl staying in there for a few years - I'm not ready to give over my home gym and games room in the large spare room just yet! ;)

I've had mine planed since Summer of '07 when we moved into our house. It was a couple of months before we started TTC we knew that one way or another we would eventually have children and we had the perfect room and it needed painted. So we went ahead with the pattern we wanted. So the paint job is done but the rest isn't. I do have the bedding and hopefully we'll be able to have it completed soon.

I had a plan for the longest time, but now I can't find the nursery bed set that I had planned on using, so it looks like I may have to come up with something else.

It's always nice to see a lighthearted topic in here...so I thought I would create one!

Do you have a nursery yet, or even a room 'designated' for one? SO and I have decided on one room that is currently our study/junk room. Last week we held a garage sale with my mom and emptied out a lot of the closet and room. Our next goal is to get papers and miscellaneous stuff cleared off the desk and an old trunk moved into the attic. We plan on steaming the carpet and having shutters installed in the coming months while we are not-not trying.
