i love nurseries. you can use fabrics, textures, and colors freely there - and who doesn't love teeny tiny baby shoes? i really like the idea of using gender neutral colors in a nursery, especially if you don't know the gender of your baby. you can add feminine or masculine touches, but there is a much greater chance that the child will reuse the furniture or other accents in their older years.
