There is nothing more exciting then decorating for a new baby's arrival.

I'm on my second nursery and I've learned that it's not wise to spend too much on decor especially a crib. Sooner that you expect your child will outgrow the crib and will have different ideas from yours regarding how the room should be decorated. Keep the paint color scheme and any expensive fixtures such as furniture, rugs, etc. flexible and go crazy with inexpensive accessories such as a fun duvet cover, wall stickers, etc.

When my son was a toddler I repainted the bedroom walls bright blue and green and accessorized with a blue Kura bed from IKEA, rainbow striped curtains, a solid red rug, and primary colored sling bookshelves. Once I decorated his room that way I've been able to have first a sea creature theme and then a space theme without spending very much money. All I did was change the wall decor and the room looks completely different.
