White is great, but as you’re about to find white and babies don’t mix! Fortunately, with the trend of gender equality and gender neutral products, you’re really not at a shortage for decorating tips for your nursery. So, here are some of the awesome gender neutral themes and décor you can add into that little space that will soon be occupied by a little one!
Nursery Wall Stickers
The first place to start when decorating your gender neutral nursery are the walls. You don’t want something too girly, just in case you have a boy, and you don’t want something too boyish in case you have a girl. The struggle is real. The easiest thing to do that is incredibly stylish is to leave the walls white. Then, use nursery wall stickers to add in a splash of personality. Stars with an adorable quote work for whatever baby you pop out, or even the tree friends forest decal seen at the beginning of this post.

Baby Bedding for All
Baby bedding can be a tough thing to buy. You don’t necessarily want anything too light because we all know they’re about to become really messy. Overfilled diapers and overfilled tummies are never light-tone friendly. But if you go with a bold color, it could be too gender-specific. The secret is to go with baby bedding that has all kinds of colors! They’re perfect for all babies – boys and girls.

Mobiles are another baby item that tend to be either pink or blue. This nursery mobile one is awesome because it has several different colors that appeal to both girls and boys. And as you’re about to find out, sleep is very important – and well needed.
The Right Light at Night
