Gender Neutral Eclectic Nursery


When I was a mama-to-be, the designer in me focused on the nursery as if it were the most important project of my career, and it became the epicenter for all baby preparedness. I mulled over every detail, including the furniture, color scheme, fabrics and accessory choices. My husband and I chose not to find out the gender of our bundle of joy until the day of birth, making the project that much more difficult. Traditionally families visit a baby superstore, select a theme and flood the space with pink or blue decor. And while those tactics are well suited for many new parents, I was determined to create a unique, gender-neutral space. Instead of selecting a theme, I focused on creating an eclectic nursery, which gave me the ability to change the idea of what a nursery should look like.

Project Details

The rug was our first nursery purchase and set the tone for the varied color scheme we went with. The¬†Leonard ‚Äď Black Resin Moose Head¬†is from White Faux Taxidermy,¬†Rock With Ewe Sheep Rocker¬†from The Land of Nod,¬†Authentic Models Royal Aero in True Yellow, Rugs USA Fergana Drip¬†Chevron Multi Rug,¬†Kalon Studios¬†Caravan Crib¬†in black,¬†IKEA¬†Ribba picture ledges¬†in white, and wall color is¬†Benjamin Moore Creamy Beige.


Accessorize with virtually any item that strikes your fancy, choose a simply and beautifully designed crib, experiment with a bold fabric, rug, or wallpaper choice, and lastly and most importantly create a space that can easily transition out of babyhood.
