Gender Neutral Nurseries

Painting a nursery the ‘gender color’ has been the big trend for many years, and now we can see the trend changing towards gender neutral colors like beige, brown, green and orange.

A pink girls room for your little princess is undoubtedly cute, but a gender neutral color can be a good choice if you don’t know the gender or if you are expecting to have more kids who will inherit this room. Lets look at some great design solutions that aren’t too girly or boyish, or can easily be transformed. These photos are taken by real home owners, which I think makes it extra interesting:


orange and brown baby nursery

This orange and brown nursery is definitely as gender neutral as can be, and is one of the most fun color choices I have seen in a while! Neat idea: Glue wooden letters of your child’s name to a picture frame and hang it over the crib!


grey and white baby nursery

This grey-green and white nursery is definitely suited for a baby boy or girl. The grown up color choice is completely contrasted by the polka dots painted on the wall, making the room fun and interesting. Reminds me of snow flakes!


light blue and brown boys nursery

The round shapes are continues into this nursery. Altough baby blue isn’t very gender neutral, this room is too pretty to be left out. See the squares painted on the wall behind the picture frames? Lovely touch!


beige and pink baby girls nursery

Beige room with pink details like valances and bedspread, which are easily changed to blue if a baby boy comes along.


light yellow nursery

If you want a more permanent name sign than suggested above, this mural makes for great inspiration. Beige nursery with red and blue details will suit both genders.


striped wall brown maroon blue baby nursery

I think this is a fantastic idea! Brown and beige are gender neutral colors, as well as maroon. If it wasn’t for the name on the wall, would you be able to guess if this nursery belonged to a baby boy or girl?
