Designing a nursery is one of the most exciting parts of preparing for baby to arrive. There are incredible products available on the market, from paint and wall decals, to all sorts of baby furniture and floor coverings. A popular trend in nurseries is monochromatic themes. The black and white theme is perhaps the most common among parents today. There are a few ideas on Pinterest that can get you started on your design.
One way to keep your nursery gender neutral is with an accent wall. Keep most of the walls a simple white and choose one wall to decorate with a pretty black and white wallpaper, or a decal quote in black, fancy writing. Then when baby arrives, use soft pastel colors for gender appropriate touches such as pale pink stuffed animals, baby blue accent rugs, or pastel green drapes.
For real drama, use paint or wallpaper to make big black and white stripes on all the walls. Then shop the baby stores for gray nursery furniture to soften the space a bit. Personalize the space with framed ultrasound pictures of your little one for the table top or walls.
To keep it simple on parents, keep the walls a solid gray or white and make the space pop with a black rug, black crib, and black changing table.
A white or gray mobile over the crib and black and white pictures of baby animals can really help tie it all together.
