It isn’t always easy to find the right products to create a gender neutral bedroom. There’s certainly no shortage of pink and blue decor for a bub, but what if we don’t want to go super ‘girly’ or ‘boyish’ with our styling, or we want to dress the nursery before we know the gender of our child?
Well, the founder of Mulberry Threads Co, Kira Sterling, has kindly given us her three top tips to achieve a gender-neutral nursery, which are both stylish and practical. Take a read!
1. Naturally neutral
Select cooler colours (charcoal, stone, Paloma, white, frost, platinum, steel and taupe) and subtly or dramatically change the room with accessories.
I personally love the combination of pastel yellow and grey for nurseries – super cute and calming (and dare I say, even better than the more traditional pinks and blues?!). Mulberry Threads Co organic bamboo Cot sheets provide understated glamour and have some great colour combos for gender-neutral spaces. PLUS, they are made from super soft bamboo, which you can read about the benefits ofover on a recent post of ours here!
2. Growth Spurt
Stretch your style and select versatile pieces of furniture that can adapt to the stages of change and remain colour neutral throughout their growth.
This is a great tip for sustainability and budgets – allowing us to get maximum use out of the one product. Teeny cots by Incy Interiors feature rounded corners and sturdy, removable sculptured side rails that can be transformed into a ‘big bed’ as the little ones get that little bit bigger. And they look timeless too without being the slightest bit tacky.
3. Add texture
Select soft accessories with natural fibres to fill out the space. By adding texture with neutral colours, your little one will be surrounded by healthy organic vibes.
I am absolutely loving the Olli Ella Nyla Changing Basket! It’s handwoven using the soft natural fibres of seagrass and you can add sheets in whichever colours you like inside. Then, once the bub grows out of it, use it as a toy storage or display basket.
