Nursery for our first child, which he can grow into with minimal updates
My husband bought the lollypop picture at a charity event before we even started on the nursery. From there we knew we wanted something a little different than traditional baby blue. We decided not to go with a "theme" and just went with items that caught our eye. We chose items that won't be to "babyish" for him as he gets older, or that can be used with future children, regardless of gender.
I saw the lantern cluster done before on another website, and I knew I wanted to incorporate it into our nursery.

There were items I liked, but were not as important to me, which I did not want to spend the $ on. With a little research, you can find comparable products for less money. Choose what is important to you, and splurge on those few items.
