Unisex baby bedding is an answer to a prayer for the mom-to-be who can't find a way to fit traditional baby blue and pastel pink into her baby's nursery decor. For those of you are new to the world of nursery decorating; unisex is simply another term for gender neutral meaning that the color, print or theme lends itself equally as well to a nursery design for a baby boy or a baby girl.
And it's not just about taste. Neutral colors often translate into big savings for a mom and dad just starting a family since the crib set and room decorations can be used for more than one baby whatever the sex. For others, savings are not the only motivation behind buying a set of unisex baby bedding. There are times when it just comes down to what's stylish and fashionable or as we mentioned earlier, a failure to be in love with those classic baby colors.
I’m sure that it comes as no surprise that some nursery themes are more indicative of a baby boy or a baby girl. Modern decorating trends have blurred the lines a bit, but even the most forward thinking individuals’ first thoughts of a room decorated with ballerinas would be that it was occupied by a female rather than an infant of the male variety.
Here are a few themes with cool, gender neutral baby bedding collections currently in the baby stores and boutiques:
In the past, the colors in unisex baby bedding were primarily stitched up using fabrics with patterns in shades of green and yellow. Chances are that if you are among the numbers who have rejected using pink and blue, you will also turn up your nose at the idea of unisex baby bedding sets in yellow and green.
So, it’s good to know that the range of modern nursery color schemes that are regarded as gender neutral has broadened to include trendy combinations of orange, red, black and even brown which has always been associated with masculine rooms. And pink so long as it’s closer to coral than cotton candy pink is no long labeled as being restricted to feminine decor as in the case of some extremely popular pink and brown crib sets.
Here are a few of the latest unisex baby bedding colors:
The beauty of these color combos is that most will allow you to add an accent color to the mix of your own choosing without compromising the neutrality of your nursery décor. As an example; you could easily add red accessories to the first three on our list with really cool results.
