Gender Neutral Nursery Design

Designing a nursery is no easy task. Historically it's been very easy to go down the 'pink' or 'blue' route and sometimes take it a little too far. These days strong colour choices and a well thought out design is becoming the trend and neutral nursery designs are reigning supreme.


Whether you’re patiently waiting to find out your baby’s gender or you simply want a neutral and minimalist design, we’ve pulled together four of our favourite gender neutral nursery designs to inspire you.


We love this minimalist nursery shared by Decor Pad. If you want a scheme that both you and your little ones can enjoy for years to come, and is appropriate for both genders, a white and grey colour palette is perfect. It is also creates an incredibly calm and soothing environment. We love the blue accent with the cushion, which really can be any colour just to add a little bit of warmth to the room.

The space here is clearly limited, so minimal design works better. Instead of a traditional changing table, this nursery features a simple changing matt on top of a chest of draws - a perfect use of furniture which can grow with your child. 

A mix of textiles has become increasingly popular in nursery design, perfectly illustrated with the image above, shared by Sarah Sherman Samuel . We love the way there is a mixture of fur with wood and wool, all bringing this room together. Gender neutral, simple and stylish but still with buckets of character. The white base colour means this nursery is especially bright and created a peaceful space for the little one.  


Who couldn't love the soft tones and natural wood in this nursery shared by Chantelle Grady. Wallpapers are always a concern when you don't know what your child will like growing up, so framed prints are a great alternative. We love the scandi touch in this room with the big bold rug making sure the room doesn't feel too empty. 


And lastly, a total favourite and an instagram obsession is Oh.Eight.Oh.Nine's nursery shared on the Mini Style Blog. Tarina is particularly skilled when it comes to interior design and her constantly evolving nursery really is the pick of the bunch. Black and white and oh so Scandi, combined with prints and a touch of natural, tan and green, gives this space a really clean and modern feel. The organic textures through wood, leather, wool and natural greens soften the monochrome theme.
