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.

Babyletto 3-in-1 Convertible Crib ($280), KidKraft Avalon Chair ($55), Uttermost Monferrato Ceramic Table Lamp ($258), Mi Zone Kids Safari Fun Wall Art ($30, two pieces), Plow & Hearth Rocking Chair ($150), Child Craft SOHO Double Dresser ($550), Guidecraft Block Mates Safari Animals ($27), Rizzy Home Platoon Area Rug ($46+)

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.
