A lot of parents decide not to find out the gender of their baby until it actually arrives. For them, decorating the nursery can be a tricky task. But nurseries today are no longer limited to pinks and blues and decorating a gender neutral nursery has become a lot easier. Here are three tips to remember when decorating a gender neutral nursery for your little one:
Inspiring Ideas for Decorating a Gender Neutral Nursery
1. Choose a neutral color palette:
Picking a color palette will give you the design direction to move forward. For a gender neutral nursery pick two or three non–gender specific colors. Warm greys, turquoise, teal, white and yellows are muted yet warm for a baby nursery. Once the baby is born, you can decide to add touches of pinks or blues without making a lot of changes.

2. Add personality with texture:
Texture can work wonders in adding depth and personality to the nursery. Look for a textured rug to lay by the crib and layer it with a smaller fur rug. When shopping for clothes or toy hampers, woven baskets are a great way of bringing in texture. Consider soft patterns for the drapes and crib bedding.

3. Pull it all together with wall decor:
Wall decals and framed art are a budget-friendly way of infusing character into the nursery. Choose gender neutral decals like polka dots, stripes, stars or animals. Use decals on one wall to avoid going overboard. For the rest of the room, collect a range of pictures that can be framed and used. Framed art is an easy way of introducing a theme and can later be easily replaced to match the personality of your baby girl or boy. You can also consider hanging a couple of family photographs to add a personal touch to the nursery.
When decorating a gender neutral nursery, remember that the baby does not care whether the room is pink or blue. Let your creativity dictate the way forward for you. Create a nursery that you like and will love spending time in.
