Your baby's nursery, A to Z
There is no limit to the themes from which to choose when decorating your baby's room. Some of the more popular include moon and stars, fish and underwater life, florals of all types, patchwork and country patterns, teddy bears, planes and trains, the alphabet and almost any kind of animal, sport or cartoon character.



"A classic room will not completely encompass a theme, but will include small details to add individuality and scope to the room's purpose, while still maintaining the elements of a well-planned room," says Broc Clark. So consider this the green light to create a theme with your favorite elements. "I am not the type to buy a 'matchy matchy' set for my own bedroom, so I wouldn't for the baby either," says Lisa, due in November. "I am just going to make all my stuff so it is one of a kind... I like an eclectic look, so my stuff will coordinate but not match."

Are you stuck for a theme idea? Start small! A great room can be built around one little thing that catches your fancy -- for example, a toy firetruck, your old pink tutu or some special artwork.
