In decades past, the trend was to go all in by decorating your nursery with the gender in mind. But that is no longer the case. These days, the trend in nursery design has moved toward more gender-neutral spaces. According to Pinterest, the gender-neutral nursery is one of the top trends. Pinterest reports that unisex nursery pins spiked by 230% in 2016, with Pinners between the ages of 25 and 34 leading the way. Gender neutral nurseries seem like the holy grail of baby rooms for parents who do not know what they are expecting. Also, if you plan on having more than one child, it makes sense to invest in neutral items that can be reused for baby #2, #3, and so forth. And for those who are on a budget gender neutral nurseries make sense too!
Here are nine are gender-neutral nursery designs, as well as some tips and ideas you can use for your baby’s room.
Grey with yellow
Yellow works beautifully as a gender-neutral shade and by combining it with gray it will give you a fresh, modern look. The great thing about gray is that it’s so versatile; it can be paired with almost any color palette. Bright hues look especially beautiful against a light or medium gray. Just be careful that you don’t have too much yellow since it can evoke feelings of anger and frustration, resulting in fussy, over-stimulated babies
