Gender neutral nurseries are becoming more and more popular. Some parents may want to wait until birth to learn their child’s gender, or raise their child without stereotypes. Others are planning to have more than one child, and want to be able to reuse baby items. As your baby grows, it’s practical to be able to easily repurpose the nursery, and that’s easier to do if you haven’t heavily invested in traditional pastels. Plus a more neutral room is likely to be a better fit with the decor of the rest of your home. There’s no reason the nursery can’t be stylish and sophisticated!
Finally, while the nursery is a room for your baby, when it comes down to it, your baby really does not care a lot about how it looks. You’ll be spending a lot of time in this room–how does it make you feel? What do you like about it? A successful nursery will be a calming retreat for both parent and child. Here are some fantastic examples of how to pull that off.
