If you’re about to become a new Mom, congratulations! Have you got all your preparations up and running and raring to go? Of course, motherhood is a very tender, yet worrying, time, and there’s going to be plenty you’ll need to do, but is the nursery all finished and looking pretty? If not, no worries.
It’s actually becoming quite a trend these days: wait until the baby is born to actually give them a room of their own with a bit of personality about it. Following along in this vein, a lot of new parents don’t actually want to know the gender of their baby and wait for it to be a surprise when their newborn comes along. But how do you prepare for that? Well, any baby can have any color in their bedroom, so let’s focus now on decorating a nursery for a (for the time being!) genderless baby!
Use Shades and Tones on the Wall
Not only is this interior design choice going to be friendly enough on baby’s eyes, but it’s also going to be entirely gender neutral. It’s a good choice for anyone who wants their baby to grow into their room, and to make sure that there’s always more space to redecorate in.
Fill the Closet with Neutral Clothes
It’s a crucial part of your nursery design, and one you’re probably feeling a bit stuck with right now. But when it comes to dressing your baby up, there’s plenty of gender neutral baby clothes out there for you to invest in. Your baby is going to look stinking cute in them, no matter the gender! So make sure the closet in your baby’s nursery doesn’t follow too much of a color scheme, and always have some light shades and tones to fall back on.
Add Some Animal Decor
All kids love animals as they grow, and because of that, you can easily add some pops of color with animal decor all over the baby’s room. Whether you want to go for a farmyard scene, or some wolves in the woods, or some lions out on the prairie, this is a good way forward.
And you can paint them yourself! If you feel you haven’t put much effort into the nursery yet, this is a surefire way to wipe any of that lingering guilt away. And remember, the more pops of color the better; no matter if a real tiger isn’t green and purple!
