Fun, Inviting Gender-Neutral Nursery

When she started planning her nursery, Bumpie Jenna H. didn’t know her baby’s gender, which made getting started a little difficult. “I wanted our baby’s nursery to be fun, playful and practical,” she says.

As she looked for inspiration, “I landed on a design from a lion poster I loved.” The yellow, white and brown print (which can be seen in the back of the nursery) helped shape Jenna’s vision for this whimsical, gender-neutral room.

A yellow and white gender-neutral room

Jenna added rusty oranges and greens to the yellow and white color scheme "to prevent the room from being too match-y."

Colorful accessories

To accessorize the room, Jenna reused pieces from elsewhere in her home. "This kept everything budget-friendly," she says.

"I think I [created] a fun, inviting space for our little one -- whether boy or girl," Jenna says. We agree!
