Q: I am in the process of decorating a room for my almost 1 year old daughter and her brother or sister who is due in late February. We have painted the walls with "Sun Shower" by Behr and the crib we have for my daughter is a dark wood. I'm wondering if I should purchase the same crib for my next baby as they will be sharing a room or go for something non-matchy?

Also with the color i've chosen for the walls, i'm wondering how I can make the room gender neutral (in case i'm having a boy) but still keep elements of girlyness on her side. Does anyone have ideas or suggestions in terms of bedding, art, etc? Thanks so much for your advice!
