I had a green rocking chair and yellow walls from a previous nursery, so I had to play with them. Luckily we picked the Winnie the Pooh theme that goes great with those colors. I soon found several items that would go great with the colors and theme. I also wanted to buy a Babyletto Hudson crib to match the one I bought for my other son, in case we move and I want to have the baby boys sleeping in the same room. I also had the green Ikea rug, that I was using in the playroom and I thought it would go well with this nursery.
We picked Winnie the Pooh because I used to love it as a child and we had chosen Cristopher as the name of the baby, like Christopher Robin in the story.
Vintage, Classic. We stuck to the classic look of Winnie the Pooh versus the bright colors of the modern version. It's elegant, sophisticated, but also simple, and soft.

This nursery theme works great for a boy, a girl, twins, or for when you don't want to find out the sex of the baby.
