My husband and I chose a gender neutral nursery design because we chose not to learn the sex of the baby; we love surprises! Call us old-fashioned but we just want to enjoy my pregnancy and will be happy whether we have a baby boy or girl.

Plus, our decision to go "unisex" with the nursery design will save money in the long run.

One of the first steps in embarking upon our journey, was to paint the walls a soft grey color that literally should go with any accent color we add down the road.

The paint color that we chose is called "Sherwin Williams Functional Gray" which is a lovely contrast to the green and white damask baby bedding set that we bought from Etsy seller Fingers and Toes.

Gender Neutral Baby Nursery Themes

I used ribbon that I found at Joann Fabric that closely matched the fabric of the green and white damask baby bedding perfectly to use as tiebacks for the sheer curtain panels that I bought at Meijer.


My hopes are that I hit the target on choosing decor will suit either a baby boy or girl.
The artwork was the inspiration for the owl and bird nursery theme. The tree wall decal that you see in the pictures (from Etsy seller Janey Mac Press) caught my eye because decorating with birds is so hot right now.

Gender Neutral Nursery designs for those having their first (or their fifth) child.


Once I had an idea of what I wanted for the baby's nursery theme, I knew which nursery furniture and decor I wanted to purchase. From that point on, I kept a watch on the websites and stores for deals on the items that I needed.

The baby's crib is Baby Mod by Million Dollar Baby ordered from walmart. The dresser and night stand are Canopy, the nursery glider and ottoman are Storkcraft brand and all came from Walmart.

As luck would have it, almost everything I bought for the baby's room was on sale. It's a little difficult to get discounts and deals on custom baby bedding orders and stuff you want from Etsy stores, but you can definitely find sales, coupon codes and the like for just about everything else.


I have wooden letters from Hobby Lobby that I plan to hang above the crib to spell out the baby's name after the baby is born. I also bought some artwork, Alpha Birdies and Counting Birdies Artwork (from etsy seller Blue Finch Studios) and art from Babies R Us that will work for either a baby boy or girl nursery.

I love the room and hope to repeat it in our nursery. Did you install the wainscoting yourself and if so, did you use chair rail along the top and then molding for the wall design?

I searched online for weeks for gender neutral nursery ideas, and this one is by far the best I have seen! Thanks so much for giving the paint color you used-after looking at this room we decided to use it too and we love it! Your nursery is modern, calming, but not overdecorated. Great job and thanks again for all the tips!

Gray wasn't on my list of paint colors for the nursery walls until I saw your pictures. Now I've bumped it to the TOP of my list. Congratulations!
