Creating a gender-neutral nursery can be a fun and creative process, and it can help to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for your little one. Here are some tips for designing a gender-neutral nursery:

  1. Choose a neutral colour palette: Consider using colours that are not typically associated with gender, such as white, grey, beige, green, or yellow. These colours can create a calm and soothing atmosphere and are suitable for both boys and girls.

  2. Avoid gender-specific patterns and motifs: When choosing bedding, curtains, or wallpaper, choose patterns and motifs that are gender-neutral, such as stripes, polka dots, stars, animals, or geometric shapes. Avoid overly feminine or masculine patterns and colours. Our Waterleaves Collection here is an excellent example of a gender neutral pattern.

  3. Mix and match furniture: Instead of buying a complete matching nursery set, mix and match furniture to create a unique and personalized look. Consider using a mix of vintage and modern pieces to add character and charm to the space.

  4. Use natural elements: Natural elements like wood, plants, and natural fibres can add warmth and texture to a nursery. Choose wooden toys or furniture, add a plant or two, and consider incorporating natural fibres like wool or cotton into your decor. Our changing basket here is made from a natural seagrass materials, designed to match gender neutral nursery interiors.

  5. Add interest with art and accessories: Artwork is a great way to add interest and personality to a gender-neutral nursery. Choose artwork that is gender-neutral, such as nature scenes, abstract art, or animals. You can also add personality with accessories like pillows, blankets, and toys that are not specific to any gender.

  6. Personalize the space: Personalize the nursery with your own touch, such as a family heirloom or a special piece of artwork. You can also add your baby's name or initials to personalize the space further.

Overall, creating a gender-neutral nursery involves choosing a neutral colour palette, gender-neutral patterns and motifs, mixing and matching furniture, incorporating natural elements, adding interest with art and accessories, and personalizing the space. By following these tips, you can create a warm and welcoming space for your new arrival that is suitable for both boys and girls.
