If you are one of those parents who does not want to know the gender of your baby and be pleasantly surprised just with the little bundle of joy you are awaiting, you may want to look at some ideas to decorate your baby's room in a neutral fashion. Even if you do know the gender, it sure is a great thing that you do not want to succumb to the traditional blue for boys and pink for girls, or race cars for boys and princess castles for girls, and transcend all these tiny forms of gender bias to create a neutral room. In a way it teaches your child to appreciate and respect the opposite gender as much as her/himself. Without going deeper into this philosophy, here is a look into some gender neutral baby room ideas that you can inspire from or execute for the apple of your eye.
Primary Color Theme
The primary colors blue, yellow, and red, make for a great base around which a unisex baby room can be designed. Absolutely colorful, and vibrant, have a wall painted with checks of these colors. Divide these checks with thick white lines for a visual break. The rest of the room does not need much accessorizing, simply because this wall has done the trick. Allow the rest of the furniture to be of a neutral shade, such as white or beige, so that this wall stands out. Decorate with the accessories as per your choice, after your baby comes home.
Another design idea includes the use of animal prints in different manners. For instance, zebra prints, tiger paws, or creating the footsteps of a bird on the wall toward its nest. Create a mural on the wall with a scene from wildlife, such as birds flying or perched on a tree, monkeys hanging from a tree, etc.
If you thought that a tropical theme could be used only to create sophisticated interiors for adults, think again. Beaded curtains in neutral shades, such as orange and white, yellow and orange, etc., around the crib, with wall art that includes seashells and star fish, along with rustic wooden furniture would make for a great room. In such a case you don't have to worry too much about choosing colors, as the accessories do the trick perfectly!
Cartoon Characters Theme
Timeless cartoon characters that we have all loved can form the base of some great neutral baby room designs. Any cartoon character is a great choice for this idea. Add related accessories, such as hanging lamps, throw cushions, and rugs to complete the look of the room.
If you are a parent who does not like too much fuss around the design and décor of a baby's room and would like to keep it neutral, so that the design lasts for a while, keep the area simple and design it around a contemporary theme. You may not think it to be very apt baby nursery theme idea, but by choosing the right accessories, you can actually have a beautiful room. Play around with colors, such as a light gray, white, subtle orange, a soft blue, sea green, lemon yellow, or a deep purple. A combination of these shades will make the room look like a beautiful little paradise for your little one. Accessorize with picture frames, stickers, decals, and other types of wall art.
As hard as it may seem to you, coming up with neutral decorating ideas for a baby's room is not a tough task, as long as you implement the aforementioned ideas and derive inspiration from these to come up with some of your own. Combining furniture for baby rooms, along with some painting ideas and a theme on which the room will be centered, will help you come up with some unique ideas, be it a little blue-eyed boy or your beautiful princess.
