If you’re looking for nursery room decor ideas that are more than just baby blues and pinks, look no further. Dive into these gender-neutral nursery room themes that will stand the test of time and bring a stylish charm to the room of any child. Bonus: these classic designs can perfectly transition into a toddler room (or the nursery of another child) without so much as a refresh.
Animal motifs fit well in any nursery room. Lions, tigers and gender-neutral bears, oh my! Whether adorable prints, wall decals or an abundance of soft and fluffy stuffed animal toys, this is one simple way to create a cozy and inviting nursery for any child. Create a jungle theme or lean into their favourite animal throughout the room.
Head in the Clouds
Bright and fluffy cloudy day motifs make for a timeless nursery. We love this trendy sage green wall that makes for a welcome change from the usual sunny blue sky, and keeps the room gender-neutral for baby boys and girls alike.
Bring in the Soothing Night Sky
Sleep is important for little ones, so create a perfectly soothing sanctuary for your new babe to get lots of precious sleep by incorporating elements of the sky. Night sky palettes and subtle starry elements reign supreme (gone are the days of glow-in-the-dark star stickers). However, a night sky-themed nursery doesn’t have to be dark! This soft grey aesthetic is a perfect example of how to bring in soothing sleepy time elements like the star and moon motifs without dark and dramatic colour choices.
Go Graphic With Bold Wallpaper
Encourage an early interest in letters and shapes with this graphic yet neutral wallpaper that adds dramatic gender-neutral flair to your child’s nursery. The crayon-effect lettering is fun and a great way to get your child practicing their A-B-Cs at an early age.
Choose Timeless Textures
Warm up the nursery without adding overly masculine or feminine elements with natural texture like warm wood and soft, rich velvets. Even though this nursery features blue walls, it still reads gender-neutral by featuring versatile decor elements like a map and plant decals.
Choose Soft Neutrals
Skip the blues and pinks and lean into soft neutrals like creamy yellows and soft greys for a nursery that is fit for all! Go monochromatic with an all-neutral colour palette or add in pops of bright colour with an accent piece (or your baby’s toys stowed away in a clever storage box or basket).
Bring Baby to the Beach
A rattan bassinet and seashell-printed muslin blanket make this the ultimate chilled-out nursery that’s not specific to any gender. After all, who doesn’t love a day on the beach?
Choose Playful Patterns
The geometric paint job in bright yellows and oranges adds a fun splash of interest to an otherwise neutral nursery room. With some painter’s tape and a little imagination, it’s easy to DIY your own patterned wall in whatever shapes and colours you (and baby) love.
Bring Elements of Natural Greenery
Fill your baby’s room with natural greenery for the perfect gender-neutral space that’s full of life. Just be sure to pick plants that are kid-safe. Soft neutrals, charming botanical prints and a touch of trendy sage green are all excellent choices that make for a timeless space that can transition between kids.
Add in Shapes and Colour
Not a fan of the neutrals for your new babe’s nursery? You can add in super-saturated bright colours while still keeping the space gender-neutral. Colours aren’t inherently gendered, so mixing all the colours of the rainbow in a space is still possible!
