What better way to start the design breakdown series than with an incredibly adorable gender neutral nursery. I have found myself becoming an “honorary” aunt this year, (boyfriends siblings became parents to the most beautiful twins) and throwing a baby shower for a friend who is due next month. I am surrounded by the joy of babies! Of course, upon hours and hours of my own baby-pinterest-pinning — I found this adorable gender neutral nursery that I just knew would be perfect for our design breakdown 01.
First off — let’s start with a “general” breakdown of “gender neutral” design.
- Begin with a neutral base — shades of gray and white, beige, greige, etc. is the way to go. Black and white is always a classic & agreeable color palette. Of course, accent color can be added in accessories and decor elements further into the design.
- Focus on pieces that are streamlined with clean lines. Too much curvature will prove feminine, while very heavy pieces will lean masculine.
- Texture & pattern — enjoy pieces that bring a unique interest to the space. For example, a woven rattan chair, or a Belgian linen drape. Elements that will add warmth and depth to the space, without causing too much drama.
Moving on to the look — I can’t find the designer to credit, just the Domino article link — so if any of you know, please hit a girl up! Anyway, I just fell so deeply in love with the airiness and simplistic vibe of this room. Of course, the large bunny print initially drew me into the space, while textured pieces like the beaded chandelier, woven pouf and moroccan shag area rug showed me this would be a baby-cuddling-approved oasis.
