A growing trend this season is the gender-neutral modern nursery. If you’re ready to ditch the pink and blue for a nursery, we’ve got some ideas for creating a gender-neutral modern nursery. A palette of neutral colors of white and cream, grey and stone, with pops of yellow and green are key to creating the perfect unisex space.

A gender-neutral modern nursery is perfect for growing families. Creating a unisex nursery allows for transition from a baby girl to a baby boy and vice versa. Make sure your larger pieces are capable of moving from one gender to the next, like your crib. You can always add smaller accents like a special blanket to really make the space your baby’s. Here’s a how to for creating a gender-neutral modern nursery that’s just right for your boy or girl:

Go for Grey

The Søren Quattro Convertible Station is everything you’ll need for nursery furniture and even grows with your child. In elephant grey and white, this crib/changing station combo is the perfect backdrop for a gender-neutral modern nursery.

Continue the grey and white color scheme with the Sticks Crib Collection from Oilo. A geometric pattern in a dark grey contrasts nicely against a fresh white background.

Paint it White 

White walls are a go-to for a gender-neutral modern nursery that will go with just about anything. White furniture on white walls really makes an impact. Just don’t forget to warm it up with a few colorful accents to avoid it looking too clinical and to give your baby some playful stimulation.

Or layer whites with creams, browns, and natural wood to create a nursery that’s warm and inviting.

Add A Pop of Color

If you’re looking to add a popping accent color, yellow is a classic gender-neutral color. The Triple Band Play Blanket mixes things up by adding a band of yellow round the grey and white blanket.

The gender-neutral modern nursery is a great place to play with color. A soft color scheme really allows fun colors to pop, so go bright and vivid with a rainbow of colors, and accent with vivid greens.

The Alto Crib With Translucent Color Panels is a fun and easy way to liven up a unisex nursery. A bright panel of orange helps to break up the potentially stark and stiff feel a neutral color palette can bring.

Try Warm Stone

If you’re looking for an in-between of grey and brown, try a warm stone. The warm stone of the Rustico Convertible Crib creates a soft and rustic color scheme, perfect for a gender-neutral nursery. Offset this neutral shade with creams and whites.

For a more modern option, consider the Cobblestone 3-Piece Crib Set.The fun pattern of white stones and stripes over the warm stone adds dimension and interest, which keeps the room from going flat.
