Culture and politics aside, there are some serious advantages to having a gender neutral nursery. Unless you want to repaint walls, repurchase blankets and redecorate, you are going to want to stick with gender neutral items.
Not yet sold on the idea? These nursery ideas are too cute to pass up:
A simple wall mural creates a point of personality and interest in a neutral room, like this easy mountain scene. Add a few framed quotes, prints, and a wooden cloud, and you are all set- whether it's home to a little prince or tiny princess.
It's all in the colors
While cool colored neutrals definitely don't sway the gender boat, blues, oranges, and greens all do well when paired with grays (or other calm colors).
Baby mobiles are a fab way to add personality and whimsy into a gender neutral nursery. While you could swap out pink bows for blue cars, there are plenty of options that remain neutral. Cute air balloons go either way (and are just darling).
Having an animal theme isn't only cute; it doesn't have to change when your little boy becomes older brother to a bouncing baby girl. Owls, foxes, elephants… the options are limitless (and are all adorable).
Simple prints within a theme (say, a beach theme?) make sense no matter what gender baby sleeps there.
Add in a pop of color on neutral walls by adding some felt bunting around framed portraits and quotes. It's an easy DIY if you have some time on your hands (or more realistically, it's easy to purchase online too).
