Oh baby! Congratulations! Part of the excitement in anticipating meeting your little one is prepping for their arrival – including decorating the baby’s room. If you’re waiting to find out the sex or if you’re wanting a gender neutral nursery, you don’t have to steer clear of colour. In fact, you can embrace it!
Bright Ideas for a Stylish Gender Neutral Nursery
A nursery designed for growing, playing and dreaming is easy to achieve with a gender neutral nursery theme and a few hardworking furnishings that have staying power.
Start with a must-have convertible crib (don’t forget to buy the rails) and a comfy glider/rocker, both designed to take your little one from newbie to toddler and beyond.
From there, inject personality and modernize the space with graphic animal-themed artwork and a standout area rug for warmth underfoot. (You could even put a swing in the nursery, if you dare. We did with this baby’s room.)
Base in Neutrals, Anchor with Colour
One-on-one-time with your little one should be all snuggles. And this dove grey chair is comfy for you both. Plus, there is a hidden pull handle on the inside, making it easy and safe to recline while holding your baby. The dove grey fabric pairs nicely with lots of bright colours, worthy of an orange gender neutral nursery. And, as your child grows, as does their taste, this soft grey Gracie chair is a timeless style and versatile shade that will still look current later.
Baby Mattress Matters
While not about choosing colours, this is still worth noting. Regardless if you’re choosing to do a gender neutral nursery or not. Opting for an organic mattress will keep your little one healthy and well-rested. This crib mattress features a two-stage support system – one side for infant, the other for toddler. It’s also breathable, regulates temperature and it comes with a lifetime warranty. Plus, you’ll love what doesn’t come with it. It’s free of VOCs, vinyl, flame-retardant chemicals, off-gasses and phthalates.
