Nursery, Pregnancy

Gender Neutral Nursery Tour

When we were deciding upon a nursery theme, I wanted it to be happy, calming, gender-neutral, not toooo theme-y, and something that was very “us.” So, basically something that was super hard to explain and didn’t really exist. I knew how I wanted the nursery to feel, but not really how I wanted it to look. After much, much, much deliberation, internet shopping, in-store shopping, and buying/returning, I’m really happy with the final product. I think it’s fun, inviting, but not overdone.

For the changing table and dresser, I kept it simple with a grey cover and reused a white basket to hold the wipes. I keep diapers and other little extras in the top drawers. The sign was a gift from some friends, and done by a local artist. I love it! The changing table is right near the door for easy access.

We went with some framed prints of our favorite national parks, and made the crib the focus of the room.

The rug was a late purchase, after Miss Little Foot was a few months old. I had a plain, neutral rug but after getting to know her personality, I thought the room needed a little more spunk. 

The nightstand is a cheap Craigslist find that I refurbished a few years ago. My plan was to replace it eventually for this space, but I think it actually works well here. The touch lamp is a must for nighttime feedings and diaper


I have two sets of sheets (highly recommended if you have a spitty, poopy baby!) and this is one – grey and white, subtle print by Aden and Anais.

The smaller bookshelf on the floor is actually a dish rack I spray painted white. It was a Pinterest-inspired project that seemed like a really good idea at the time…definitely not worth the effort!

These white Pillowfort Baskets are great for holding blankets and toys! Also shown is the sound machine, and another view of the nightstand.

Finally, these silver and white linen curtains add a little fun to the window while also blocking out some light. This window doesn’t get much direct sunlight, fortunately, so we didn’t need to get really dark window treatments. We’ve used this rocker and ottoman SO MUCH! It’s sold on Amazon for a fantastic price – good thing, because it’s seen it’s fair share of spit up and blowouts over the past 9 months. It’s a little smaller than a full blown rocking chair or recliner, which was perfect for this corner near the closet door.
