Gender Neutral Nursery Inspiration

As Zoolander might say, Gender Neutral is “so hot right now” and today we have some tips to create your most stylish and functional gender neutral nursery, along with some product suggestions and inspiration along the way.

Step 1a. Start with a focal point, like a crib or an eye-catching mirror.  We love this Dream On Me 5-in-1 Convertible Crib.

Step 1b. Select your crib mattress. Bet you didn’t know that crib mattresses could come in different colors? Well the Lullaby Earth Breeze breathable 2-stage crib mattress does and for our gender neutral nursery pleasure, we love the gray. (By the way, you can enter to WIN a Lullaby Earth mattress with Gugu Guru each month in our Sweet Dreams Sweepstakes – score!)

Step 2. Build around your focal point with complementary but functional items.  Don’t just add to add – trust us, you will regret filling your nursery with too much “stuff” later on. Your nursery should be as serene and uncluttered as possible. For storage and hampers, we love the whimsical bins from 3Sprouts.

Step 3. Choose non-toxic, high quality products that are built to last like a non-toxic, machine-washable rug from Lorena Canals. We are digging this gray ombre for gender neutral nurseries.

Step 4. Make sure you have a comfortable place to sit for those late night feedings. We are huge fans of the Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker – another high quality piece that will last.

Step 5. Invest in some good tech to ease your mind when both you’re present and not in the nursery. We’re big fans of the new Project Nursery baby monitor, which boasts the world’s smallest 1.5” audio and video Mini Monitor; perfect for taking with you around the house to keep a constant watch on the little one.  Talk about multi-functional – the aden+anais Serenity Star includes a feeding diary, sound machine, room temperature indicator, night light and clock. If you’re a music lover, adding some modern lullabies and rhythms to the nursery helps to create ambience. We dig the VAVA Voom Bluetooth speakers that provide 360 degree surround sound. Lastly, air quality is key and Crane’s smartDROP Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is a high tech humidifier that increases air moisture for easier breathing and a good night’s sleep.

Step 6. Keep in mind that diapering can now be stylish too. With brands like Ubbi, a diapering station in the nursery no longer has to be a disorganized, plastic eye sore! We love their sleek diaper pails (including the awesome black triangles featured above that’s coming soon) and caddy.  Plus cover up a diaper changing pad – like this one from Munchkin – with a gorgeous cover from aden+anais and that corner may just be the chicest in the room!
