Black and White nurseries are super trendy right now, and for good reason – they’re gender neutral, so you can set them up long before baby comes and they transition really well to toddler/kid rooms. However, when you’re working with two strong contrasting colors such as black and white, you’re going to want to throw some patterns into the mix to make for a stylish room. We rounded up nursery essentials for your black & white pattern inspired nursery – plus, head to the bottom of the post for some inspiration help.

Crane Drop Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier, black:  We have posted many times about why Crane Humidifiers are a nursery essential, so we had to include a plain black Crane Drop Humidifier black and white nursery. Humidifiers are especially important for Newborns because they are Obligate Nasal Breathers, breathing only through their tiny noses for their first 4 – 6 months. Any congestion can make breathing, feeding, and sleeping incredibly difficult for your little one. Why not grab this nursery essential in black to match your black and white nursery?
