Gorgeous Gender Neutral Nursery Ideas and Inspiration
Expecting a baby and don’t want to do the whole pink for a girl, blue for a boy decor? Many parents-to-be choose to opt for gender-neutral styling. Whether you’re waiting until birth to find out the gender of your baby, or you just want to style a room that’s going to grow with your little one, a gender-neutral nursery is ideal.
With the rise of Scandinavian style and the introduction of more sophisticated aesthetics for children, nurseries are becoming less traditional every day, and we’ve got the inspirational ideas to prove it.
Thanks to its association with subdued colour palettes and minimalistic aesthetics, a Scandinavian style makes a beautiful choice for a gender-neutral nursery.
To give your nursery the Scandi treatment, keep things clean and simple by opting for a white-dominated colour palette and adding touches of natural wood. However, don’t forget to also keep the room child-friendly with a bit of whimsy.
To add a little charm to your Scandi style, gender-neutral nursery, try adding unique decorative elements, such as some simple yet striking wall art or an eye-catching mobile.
Green and Gold
Creating a gender-neutral nursery doesn’t mean you can’t add colour. While you may be eschewing blues and pinks, there are still plenty of other tones to try.
In particular, green can make a lovely choice for a gender-neutral bedroom. If you want a bold look, select a deep shade of green, but remember to use it sparingly. Alternatively, if you want a subtle aesthetic, choose a soft green or mint tone and use it more liberally.

Other accent colours to consider include metallics like silver and gold, which can bring simplistic nurseries to life. The luxurious hues are ideal for decorative pieces as well as small furniture items.
Instead of creating your nursery with a “boy” or “girl” theme, consider styling it to suit an entirely different aesthetic, such as nature. A nature-inspired room is one that all babies can appreciate and love.
To create a chic nature-inspired bedroom for your child, try bringing elements from the outdoors inside. So, when it comes to colours, select earthy tones, such as brown, orange and green. And, when choosing furniture, opt for wood.
To complete the space, add appropriate decorative elements, such as plants, woven baskets and a rug.

Shades of Grey
Grey is another fantastic colour for gender-neutral nurseries. Thanks to its neutral appeal and chic appearance, the hue has become a recent favourite for interiors and looks set to continue its reign.
When using grey in your baby’s nursery, think carefully about where you’ll use the colour and how dark the shade should be. In general, if you plan to use grey on the walls, a lighter tone would be best to keep the room from seeming too dark. But, if you’re only using grey as an accent colour on small decorative elements, the shade can be as dark as you like.
Another way you can make your gender-neutral nursery stand out is to give it a retro spin. We particularly love a mid-century style with statement furniture pieces to match.
To give your baby’s room a retro touch, start by choosing your cot. It doesn’t have to actually be vintage but rather just have the appropriate aesthetics. Then, add drawers and an armchair to match before completing the space with accessories.
Now that you’ve created the perfect gender-neutral nursery, all that’s left to do is wait for your little bundle of joy to arrive.
