3 Ways to Style a Gender-Neutral Nursery
In years past, decorating your nursery always started with the baby’s gender, to make sure that the space stayed within strict color schemes associated with either boys or girls. Nowadays? A nursery that doesn’t denote gender is all the rage. And good thing too, as the options for decorating a nursery are limitless when you’re not confined to sugar and spice (or snails and puppy dog tails, for that matter). Here are a few ideas courtesy of our in-house team of interior designers.
A Sea of Blue & Teal
First up: A gender-neutral nursery featuring blue and teal accents is perfect for boys and girls. Splashes of white keep the look clean and refined.

Prints + Lots of Color
Start with a few fun prints and a patterned blanket to liven up the scene — in colors from orange and yellow to blue and red. Going gender-neutral luckily allows you to work with whichever (and as many!) colors as you want.

Simple Yet Coordinated
Opt to go more simple, but not necessarily more quiet. Some light blue, some orange and a fun doll collection liven up the space and tie in nicely with a gray and white palette.
