    Unisex nursery ideas/colours

    I'm looking for inspiration for starting the baby's room from scratch...had planned on just doing plain white walls and then adding stickers once born and we know gender, but I quite fancy giving it some colour/wall art. Has anyone got any pics to share or ideas you've seen and like? I am pretty hopeless at this kind of thing!

    We did ours with yellow walls, wood floor, sheepskin rug and  a baby jungle animal  theme from Mothercare for curtains, stick arounds, and hooks.  I had a boy and then a girl, and they both had that as their Nursery and it worked well, and was nice and bright.

    We knew we were having a girl when we had E but I was still wary that she might be a boy so wanted a unisex nursery so we did it a lemon colour with Humphrey's Corner border and bedding.

    We didn't know what sex J was so we painted the walls cream and beige and got a border from Next and got the samed bedding.

    We have gone for duck egg on the walls and we're going to get some wall stickers too. We've got some bits from the baby's r us jungle fun range so it should be nice and bright and suitable for either flavour! x

    We had white walls with the m&p gingerbread border. My man made red gingham curtains. The furniture is all white and lots of teddies around. 

    Since having little miss we've added a but of pink here and there.

    E's room is cream on three walls and pale blue on the other. She has a green 'grass like' rug and we brought in more girly things with pink curtains and cushions. 

    My original plan was for Autumn like colours and once we know which room will be hers/theirs I will redo this theme. I love this
