Organic and Modern Gender Neutral Nursery


We adopted and weren't sure if we were getting a boy or a girl so I designed a gender neutral nursery!

Design Inspiration

I wanted a serene space that was calming and soft.  Since we weren't sure if we were getting a boy or a girl I went with mint green on the walls so I could pop in a pink & coral if we got a girl or stick with grey & browns if we got a boy.  I love gold so I popped in some gold accents and tried to keep the rest pretty organic.

Decorating Style

Transitional.  Although, I love nature and always incorporate some element of nature into my designs.  I also wanted this room to have a mid-century modern feel, so you'll see a nod to that design style.

Project Details

We spent a lot of money on our baby :) so we didn't have a ton to put into the nursery.  All of the items were very reasonably priced!

Art Prints: Jennifer Donovan Art & Design (frames, IKEA)

Lamps: Target

Dresser: IKEA

Rug: HomeGoods

Crib: My crib from when I was as a baby

Glider: Walmart

Glider Pillow: The Blue Bird Shop (Etsy)

Window Treatments: Target

Mobile: Made it myself using this tutorial

Large Letter: Michaels (sprayed gold)

Flokati Rug/Drape: IKEA

"You Are My Sunshine" Pillow: HomeGoods

Rocking Horse:  Goodwill find, refurbished

Ottoman: Old Time Pottery

Wall Color:  Sherwin Williams, Lighter Mint

Favorite Items

The art prints and mobile are absolutely my two favorite elements of the room!


If you want a soft mint, definitely go with the Lighter Mint instead of Mint Condition (one step up)!  I was worried the Lighter Mint would be almost white but it give the perfect shade of soft green.  Mint Condition would've been way too much green for the look I was trying to achieve.
