I wanted to show the viewers how gender neutral nurseries can still be fun. I chose Yellow and Gray and Aqua and Pear Green.
Before sonograms could tell you the sex of your baby, parents-to-be painted their nurseries yellow or green and used the Winnie the Pooh characters. The yellow gender neutral nursery has been updated by using today’s new neutral, gray. Sheets with gray background and yellow -white modern patterns. Stars are prominent in the lamp, wall paper border and the Sweet Dreams wall art. Felt covered hangers have made their way in nurseries. They are no only for adults now! Isn’t the yellow giraffe adorable! Babies love the petite blankets with animal heads. Happy Hippo!
Want more color for your little boy or girl? Aqua and pear green are still neutral but with more color. Bedding, wall plaques, and adorable mobiles will catch your little ones eyes and keep them entertained for a short time…while you do the laundry and dishes.
Lamps with eye catching animals and patterned lampshades are an affordable addition to your nursery. The portable diaper changing storage has places for diapers, lotions, wipes and a change of clothes. Tucked into a pouch is a matching diaper changing mat. Must have if you live in a two story house with the nursery on the top floor and the kitchen and living on the first floor. Stuffed animals are another way to coordinate the color and theme of your nursery.
I used Raggedy Ann and Andy for nursery colors and theme. Pale blue walls, blue and white checked drapes, white furniture and of course, several Ann’s and Andy’s. My accent color was red from the red yarn hair on the dolls. At the time it was the perfect nursery theme for both a boy and a girl. I know it is difficult to resist knowing the sex of your newborn, but it can be fun decorating for the unknown. Another reason to not have a gender specific nursery is if you plan to have your children close together in age. You could make any of my two examples more for feminine or masculine by adding a few accessories or color that are associated with the sex of your newborn.
Guess who I met at Fox 8? The ACC mascots! They were there to announce the men’s and women’s ACC tournaments in Greensboro, NC.
