Nursery Theme (or Lack thereof)
As soon as people found out we were expecting, they started asking us about our nursery theme. To which my response was always "I dunno". I didn't really want to give it much thought until we knew the sex. I always assumed, though, as did most of our friends and family, that there would be some kind of nature or animal theme, ourselves being nature- and animal-lovers, and those being such common nursery themes. However, as I did research on-line for nursery theme ideas and viewed pictures of nurseries with themes, I found that it was all just too over-the-top cutsie for my taste. I was having dinner with my friend Susan last week, and for some reason, it hit me like a flash--I would decorate in blue and brown. You see, I love that color combination and have always wanted to decorate a room in those colors, but have not had a room that would be appropriate. This is the perfect opportunity. The colors are both manly and appropriate for babies, and they make me happy. Plus I think the Talleys should be happy, as this theme incorporates UNC's color, "Carolina Blue". The photo is the bedding set I ordered on-line from JC Penney. Hopefully I will like the colors and the fabric in person as much as I like the picture--if not, we're back to square-one.
