A Modern, Gender-Neutral Nursery {Featured Real Room}

This week’s featured real room is a gender-neutral nursery, featuring black furniture, gray walls, and accents in turquoise and yellow. New mom Erin D. gave birth to a healthy baby girl a few short weeks ago, but when she designed this nursery she had no idea what she would be having.

Erin says, “We didn’t find out what we were having so I wanted to create a gender neutral room that was calming and relaxing— but that wasn’t yellow and green, like many think of for a gender neutral room.” Mission accomplished! The nursery is bright, inviting and uncluttered.

Baby Girl Owl-Themed Nursery {Featured Room}

Putting together a nursery on a small budget can be challenging. But doing so while you are a renter presents a whole new set of complications — no painting allowed, for example. Jordana K. is a new mom and CCN reader. She resides in Canada and designed this neutral, owl-themed nursery for her newborn baby girl in her rental apartment—for about $1,000!

Featured Real Room: Retro Modern Gray Nursery

Designing a gender neutral nursery can present quite a few challenges — like choosing a color scheme and decorative elements that will work for a boy or a girl. New mom Lindsey took on the challenge to design an eclectic modern nursery for her little bundle of joy and we think she totally nailed it! Using gray as her neutral color, she added pops of yellow and aqua for a gender neutral space that’s anything but bland.

Silver Polka Dot Nursery | Featured Baby Room

How do you design a magazine-worthy nursery on a small budget? You take a cue from this new mama! Feast your eyes on this elegant little nursery — are you feeling the silver polka dots as much as me? — and get inspired to put together a dream baby room without breaking the bank. This darling nursery cost less than $1,000!

A muted gray and white color palette with a hint of yellow —to brighten the space— and silver —for a little glitz and glamor– make this the most darling little nursery. My favorite detail about this room has to be the silver polka dots on the wall. I thought they were decals but they’re actually a DIY project with contact paper — can you believe it?!

Many of the big ticket items were gifted to the new parents —like the crib— but the couple set out on a DIY mission. Almost everything in the room is handmade by them —or a loved one— or refurbished/repurposed.

What was your inspiration for the room?

Though we knew we were expecting a boy, I wanted to create a nursery that wasn’t too boyish. I also wanted to avoid any theme (airplanes, elephants, etc.) because I didn’t want to be limited to one thing or color!  I love grey, so we chose a nice warm grey color for the walls and I just love the backdrop it makes for the other colors in the room. Another huge source of inspiration for the room came from fabrics that I either bought or designed myself on spoonflower.com.
