14 gender neutral nursery ideas you (and your baby) will love | My Baby My Star

If you’re not sure if you’re having a boy or girl, or just prefer non-gender decor, check out these gender-neutral nursery ideas that don’t rely too much on stereotypical colors and themes. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wanting a dinosaur-themed baby room in green and blue, or a garden-themed room that covers all shades of pink, but if you prefer a more gender-neutral nursery design, you’ll resonate with these rooms.

From bold wallpaper to perfect paint colors, layered rugs and inviting textures or colorful accents, there’s a gender-neutral nursery idea you’ll love. Some of these nurseries have a subtle theme (like rainbows, animals, or plants), but every idea on this list is for everyone. Whether you want the nursery to be as color neutral as gender, or you think the more color the merrier, here’s an idea you’ll want to borrow. And because it will probably become your favorite room in the house, don’t forget a comfortable chair (may I humbly suggest with an ottoman), as well as timeless pieces of furniture, lighting and curtains that will grow with your child because you don’t want to replace those expensive items, if you don’t have to.


Animal wallpaper in neutral colors

If you don’t know if you’re having a boy or girl but you know you want wallpaper, an animal print is always a safe choice, especially when the paper is this cute. Being grayscale, the animals pop in while still looking sophisticated and calm, and the white furniture is a nice grounding point against busier wallpaper (which is just one wall). This room by @oursomersetnest gives me storybook vibes.


A children’s room with rainbow motifs

You can never go wrong with rainbow bookshelves. This playful room from Studio DIY is super kid-friendly (love the low trash cans for kids to reach into). A Moroccan rug fits the vibrant rainbow theme while also being super soft and warm, and white touches like the sheer drapes and the decorative but neutral bubble decorations on the crib’s spindles offset some of the rainbow’s brightness. This is a children’s room that easily converts into a room that a toddler will love.


A focal light

Airy and light with lots of lovely details, this gender neutral nursery from A Beautiful Mess is as elegant as it is inviting. The black and white wallpaper with a subtle bunny pattern works well with a boy or girl, and the white furniture is a classic choice. Rattan accents (like the giraffe, a toy bucket, and a sunlit mirror) add a natural texture that works well with the plants and colorful yarn tapestry. Plus the showstopper here is the light fixture, which adds a bit of drama.


Minimal with the right color accents

This calm but playful nursery designed by Sarah Rhodes (and featured in A Beautiful Mess) proves that white walls and ceilings can really bring out the other colors in the room. A colorful rug draped over a dark wood floor adds some airiness, and you can’t go wrong with solid curtains (this will be a boon during nap time). If you could see the whole room you would see a gallery wall made up of family photos and the wall above the changing table has been painted a cheerful coral to add a pop of colour.


DIY Wallpaper (For Much Less)

If you like the look of a flashy wallpaper but aren’t sure if it’s worth the investment (or time if you’re planning on making sticky wallpaper yourself), this hack from A Beautiful Mess is a great idea. Here, broad, flowing brushstrokes in a pretty cobalt blue look wallpaper-like and add so much interest and color to this baby’s room. Plus, you can do this in an afternoon. The awesome wooden mountain backdrop is also a DIY, and mid-century touches like a geometric light and sturdy chair pull the space together.


A star border

The subtle yet cheery star border in this room (photographed by @annastathakiphoto and designed by Lisa Mettis, founder of Born & Bred Studio) works equally well in a baby or girl’s room. “Think of the child’s room as an extension of your personal style and the rest of the house. Carry some of the colors from the rest of your home into the children’s rooms. Kids have such beautiful, fun items that are great for creating a rotating display. Let the color come through their belongings and textiles like quilts, cushions and window dressing,” says Mettis.


jewel tones

You might not immediately think of jewel tones when it comes to a child’s bedroom, but The House That Lars Built proves that these rich colors work So Good. The palm tree wall color is so saturated and deep that the room doesn’t even need a ton of art or wall decor, and if you look at the entire post, you’ll see that gingham curtains give it a playful vibe. Plus, you’ll thank yourself for getting a rocking chair and ottoman during those late-night feedings.


A designer wallpaper

This cool gender neutral nursery by @randiensley has a clear focal point: this stunning wallpaper designed to look like an elegant chalkboard. The beautiful paper is Kelly Wearstler (and it comes in other colors) and because everything else, from the simple line drawing to the white curtains to the clean lines of the furniture, is so clean and understated, the wallpaper really shines .


Simply sophisticated

This gender neutral baby room by @michellemelerine is understated with so much elegance and has such a peaceful feel (which is good because you’ll be spending a lot of time in that rocking chair). The geometric wallpaper is super subtle and pairs well with the printed blinds, and the lime green door is a lovely way to introduce a bit of color. Plus, you can’t go wrong with neutral accents like a white chair and a stunning four-poster bed.


Hand painted details

Check out the Vintage Revivals post to see the amazing transformation of this space; it looks like another room. Hand-painted arches in varying shades of green look like custom-made wallpaper, and a framed black-and-white photo gives the space a vintage vibe. The DIY pressed flower mural adds a delicate vibe that looks great alongside sturdier elements like the potted plant, metal crib, and bright rug.


Adorably mid-century

Dark wood panels add depth and a mid-century vibe to this cute nursery. You can’t go wrong with woodland animals when creating a gender neutral room, and this room has plenty of animal ornaments to tie the theme together. Add layered texture, soft lighting, and a wallpapered wall, and you have a cozy, inviting space that you’ll want to spend plenty of time in. This guest room (or a room for a baby and toddler) thanks to the sofa bed across from the crib.


shades of grey

One of the most effortless ways to create a gender-neutral nursery is to lean on neutral colors and minimalist design elements. In this stunning and modern nursery from Homey Oh My, interest doesn’t come from wallpaper or bright colors, but from cozy textures, minimalist art, an interesting mobile, and baby clothes that become part of the decor (because everything cute deserves it) . are displayed).


Tons of texture

Neutral in gender and color, this kid’s room from Little Crown Interiors (photographed by David Casas) is so serene. Luce texture paired with pops of color like the mustard pillow, green plant, and burnt orange bed sheet with a subtle clay cloth pattern add personality and a bit of fun to the airy space.


Shades inspired by nature

If you’re trying to avoid pink or blue in your gender-neutral nursery, a soft green is always nice. Here, boho touches like an egg-shaped mirror, cascading plant, and macrame wall hanging add warmth and personality to this cute space by @what_jess_grows. The paint color seen here is Overtly Olive by @duluxuk.

If you’re not sure if you’re having a boy or girl, or just want a nursery that doesn’t feel too pink or blue, these gender-neutral nursery ideas are both inviting and sophisticated and you’ll never tire of looking at them.
