The secret to a neutral color nursery is layering. We don't want to see a white tone spread all around the room, what we want is a combination of whites and creams playing together in harmony.
Keep It Light & Fun
For a gender-neutral nursery, keep your colors choice minimal with whites, creams, tans, woods and natural greenery. This color scheme will create a clean, light feel and allow your main room piece to remain the focus in the nursery. The main furniture pieces can be plain white so they’ll show how the rug stands out, they serve to complement the star of the show rather than compete with it. And as well, adding a colorful mobile or toys is encouraged to make sure your little one has lots of visual stimulation even in a neutral space.
