Whether you’re creating creating a shared space, or unsure of your next child's gender, a gender-neutral nursery is an excellent choice. Modern and versatile, neutral nurseries have never been more stylish and inclusive. Wondering how to get the right look? Here's some helpful tips to create a room that your child will love!

Gender-neutral nursery tip #1:
Play with pattern

Patterns are unisex. Playing with a patterned accent, such as this feature wall can anchor an entire room, add colour and create visual weight in its place. This kids room uses a checker board pattern wallpaper with coloured scallop confetti. You can style it easily, without being overly kid-like and the best thing is, it grows with the kids.

Gender-neutral nursery tip #2:
Focus on Play theme

Focusing on the "Play" theme helps to create a gender-neutral nursery space. Simple walls put emphasis on decor and whimsical accessories, encouraging open end play. Practical details such as open shelving, easy-access toys, and reachable storage hooks allow kids to play independently, creating a functional, kid-friendly room that your child would love.

Gender-neutral nursery tip #3:
Use a rainbow of colours

Not sure of what colours to use? Introducing a rainbow of colour to an all-white space can really dress up a space without compromising a gender-neutral approach. Playful and eclectic, this confetti wallpaper features a burst of vibrant colours. We have curated a list of furniture from Crate and Barrel for a joyful confetti theme room.

Gender-neutral nursery tip #4:
Opt for the right colours

If you thinking of anchoring your room around a colour, consider going with colours like green, grey, white, yellow, orange and brown. These are gender-neutral colours and goes with practically anything. 

We love green as neutral colour. Various shades of green works well together (psst.. just like our mini timberland wallpaper) and it’s the most comfortable colour on the eyes. According to Jessica Strand, author of “Baby’s Room: Ideas and Projects for Nurseries,” green calms the nervous system and conveys a sense of balance.

Gender-neutral nursery tip #5: Invest in Versatile Furniture

Always invest in pieces that is not just for use in baby’s room. After your toddler outgrows his nursery, make sure the furniture you choose  remains timeless, versatile and works with the rest of your home decor.

Gender-neutral nursery tip #6: Keep it simple

Less is more. When it comes to gender-neutral spaces, keep it simple and chic. The simpler you keep it, the less there is to say boy or girl.

Minimalist nurseries focuses on the natural environment, bright spaces with loads of natural light and textures. It keeps clutter away, creates spaces that feel clean and attractive for their simplicity.

Avoid themes as are usually gender led. Such themes include floral, astronomy, dinosaur, princess. Instead, consider nature inspired themes, such as a woodland, animals, clouds, animals, or letters and numbers that is versatile across both genders.
