Nursery Inspiration - Baby Boys

As I've mentioned a time or two, I have a pretty strong feeling Baby Collins is a little boy. I'm not sure where it comes from, but I've conducted an unscientific survey of moms, and apparently the "feeling" can be the real deal. Several mommas I know swear they knew their baby's gender long before it was confirmed by medical technology. Of course, the "feeling" can also be completely off. At any rate, I have a 50/50 chance of being right about this boy thing, so I'm sticking to it (until the ultrasound tech tells me otherwise).

Needless to say, I've spent a lot of time pondering the possibilities for Baby Collins all-boy bedroom. Here are some masculine nurseries I'm loving...

Designed by my all-time favorite, Candice Olson, this baby boy's room is super-fab. While theme rooms really aren't my thing, I love the color palette. There is no doubt that this room is made for a little man.
Is this one a little boring? Probably. But I kind of love the simplicity of it. It's a room that a baby boy could really grow into as he gets older. With a few accessory and/or color changes here and there, the room could easily be transformed into something fabulous for every stage of a child's life.
This nursery makes me really, really want white furniture for Baby Collins' room. It looks crisp and fresh. Surprisingly, I don't mind the powder blue walls either, especially with the fun accent wall. I usually don't like patterned walls, but for some reason this works. It looks preppy (which is exactly the look I want if Baby Collins is a boy).
How stinkin' cute is this?! It's probably a little bit modern for my taste, but I really, really like it. I'm not quite sold on turquoise in a boy's room. I'd probably go with a navy and green palette instead.
This is super cute and super funky. Again, probably a bit modern for my taste, but I love the gray walls paired with the pops of color. It's the kind of room that little one could really grow into as he gets older.
This is just so, so sweet. I love the white walls paired with the muted blues and tans. It's simple and airy and oh-so fresh. As a realistic mama-to-be though, I know better than to paint a baby's room white!

For now - these are the designs that stand out for Baby Boy Collins. In just a few short days, we'll know the gender and the nesting can begin! Oh, I can't wait!
