A Gender Neutral Nursery for a Sweet Baby Boy!
Hi friends! Now that we've basically completed Clara's big girl bedroom it's time to finally begin work on our baby boy's nursery! I have been looking at ideas for what seems like forever! I've had a serious challenge deciding on a theme because I just like so many things!!
Initially I wanted to do a forest theme, which would include a forest green accent wall, taupe walls and little brown bears and other forest-like creatures. I even ordered a swaddle to match the nursery theme I had envisioned immediately after we found out we were having a boy (the adorable swaddle set is linked here). However, after thinking more about it.. I just really don't love the colour green! LOL! Dark green is very trendy right now, and I am loving the earthy tones I keep seeing all over on instragram right now, but even though I love it I just don't think it's "my" style!
When browsing for inspo. I gravitate toward gender neutral nurseries that are light and airy.
I am also a huge lover of the coastal design style and I adore the nautical theme (think whales, boats and anchors)..so I think this a more neutral colour scheme and a nautical theme will make for a better "happy place!"
Below are some of the nurseries inspiring me! I'm also sharing my favourite wallpapers for boys since my last post was my favourite wallpaper for girls!

Bright and white stunning gender neutral nursery by Kelley Nan
As you can probably tell I love spaces that are light and bright spaces overall but have pops of blue and/or a coastal vibe. I am loving the look of wood panelling as well as board and batten but I also have a soft spot for wallpaper (what a surprise!) I can't wait to begin work on this nursery as I so badly want to commence "nesting mode!" Baby boy's clothes are currently piled in a cardboard box in his closet so I cant wait to get a dresser and start putting them away!
Here are my favourite wallpapers that I think would look amazing in a nursery for a little boy! Many if not all of these could also be considered as gender neutral. Let me know which is your favourite in the comments below!!
