Whether you’re expecting a little one (and you’re choosing to be surprised) or looking to revamp your toddler’s little haven, a monochromatically inspired, gender-neutral nursery is becoming a popular stylistic choice! Gone are the days of pink vs. blue, and in are the creative approaches to contemporary, refreshing and well-defined decorating vibes. With so many designers taking a unique perspective on the idea, there’s plenty of stunning options to choose from that perfectly capture the importance of functionality and playfulness with a keen emphasis on great design. Here are a few of our favorite of-the-moment items!
Homely Creatures Bear Cushion
We’ve seen many cute ways to incorporate animal-inspired accents into a little one’s room in the past, but this is one of our favourites! These soft, cuddly pillows are subtle and friendly, and designed with restfulness in mind. As uni-sex items, they’re a wonderful addition to a girl or boy’s room and style perfectly with any calm-inspired interior.
With wall decals, you can really get creative and personalize the room through shapes, colours, patterns and placements — most importantly, you can easily change your mind! Vivid Wall Decals offer tons of gender-neutral options, all of which easily peel off when you’re ready for a change. If you’re looking to fill a larger space, try an all-over “wallpaper” effect without the expense or effort of actual wallpaper, or do a feature wall to draw attention in a way that best suits your area.
It’s hard to come across bunting and not go, “aww.” It’s just always a cute, classic idea. We adore these contemporary bunting designs from Homely Creatures. Made with 100% New Zealand wool felt, each piece is hand-felted by women in Nepal — making every order unique and special. Truly a lovely way to add some texture to any children’s room, from hanging on the wall to draping to stringing across corners, anything!
The monochromatic nursery and toddler room styles that we favor definitely have a sleek, logical breath to them. It’s so important that the space be as giving to you as it is to the baby, so being organized is pivotal. I’ve found these White Moose Felt Storage Baskets to be incredible! They provide access to easy clean-up, while also adding a nice, sophisticated look to the overall décor. Bonus: they fold down for simple storage in-between use!
One piece that can really tie a tiny one’s room together is a beautiful cot! The Teeny Cot, from Incy Interiors, provides neutral tones of mid-century modern style with a Scandinavian sensibility. Featuring sturdy, removable sculptured side rails, the highlight of this design is the rounded corners and durable functionality. Overall, the look is simplicity at its very best, which is perfection when you’re after an ideally fresh look.
