{client love} nursery concepts

I am so excited to be helping two of my closest and dearest friends design there nursery for there first baby.  He or she is due in January, which sounds like we have tons of time to plan.  But, its almost September and before we know it the holidays will be here and then it'll be January.  And there is always that possibility that the baby will come early.  Ahh, that sounds scary when I put it like that!  But fear not, because we've been working hard on getting this little room together so they're not scrambling at the last minute.  

They've decided to keep the gender a surprise (we did too!), which means we have to design a gender neutral concept for the room.  I put together a little sampling of some gender neutral rooms that I've found absolutely adorable.  (More on Pinterest).


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 
(Starting at the top left) 

They all have a few ideas in common:
  • No pink or blue.  Choose a color scheme that is calming or playful for either a boy or girl, like greens, grays or yellows. 
  • Replace a gender specific theme (like butterflies or cars) with bold patterns and prints like chevron or polka dots. 
  • White furniture makes a neutral base for either gender.
  • Use simple artwork without suggesting a theme, like ABCs, animals or a cute saying.  
Here are a few concepts I put together for them based on a few ideas we talked about.

{dog theme}
in honor of there cute little sproodle


{giraffe theme}
because all kids love animals



{music theme}
since they are both really into music


{travel theme}
they also both love traveling and toured the world together



I hope you like them!  We've narrowed in a few ideas, so when everything is final I'll report back with our final selections.  In the meantime check out my Pinterest board to see more of the products we pulled together.
