Gender Neutral Nursery

Gender Neutral Nursery with Animals

Our entire home is based on a neutral color palette and I knew even before we knew the gender of our baby that I wanted a gender neutral nursery.  I also knew that I wanted to incorporate our fur children from our farm in some form or fashion!  I may be a little bit biased but I love how our gender-neutral nursery turned out!

Here are a couple of before shots so you can get an idea of where we started!

First, we decided to add a coat of Shoji White paint and some wood detail to add dimension.

Next, we wanted to add wallpaper to the area above the railing.  We worked with Milton and King with their paste the wall type wallpaper. I knew I wanted to use the Huddy's Dot design but was torn between the Taupe and Black colorways. There are five different colorways as well if the black or taupe doesn't fit your needs.

I ultimately decided on the Taupe because it was a more subtle contrast.  My contractor was able to install the entire room in about 2 hours and said it was very simple to do!

We could not be more pleased with how well the wallpaper turned out, I think it really makes the room!

Next, we added a white and natural wood crib and changing table. We loved the look, but also that they are Greenguard Gold certified.

One of the other nice things about the changing table is that the top changing table portion is removable so that we can use it as a standalone dresser when we no longer need to use the top portion to change him.

Above the changing table, we added a sign with his name. My friends Amber and Dylan over at Poplar Home custom made this sign for him.  They have a ton of options if you want a sign for your home or nursery! You can find their shop here.

Next, I had my sister Meredith (who is a professional artist) create custom paintings of a few of our animals as babies to go over the crib. If you would like for her to create a custom project for you you can find her website here.

We used this crib mattress because it is fully breathable as well as 100% washable and this crib bedding. The other corner of the room we wanted to be a space where we can rock Rhett to sleep. We fell in love with this swivel, glider, rocker chair. It's a bit of an investment and I looked everywhere to see if pricing fluctuated based on the retailer but it is consistently the same price across the board.

In addition to having a powered recline and incline, it also has a built-in USB charging port so that we can charge our phones directly in the chair without having to hunt down a plug. You can find this awesome rocker here.

After we got the major furniture pieces in, it was time to add the smaller details.  We chose this diaper pail because it is made out of steel and highest-rated to keep the smell at bay.  We also loved this changing pad because you do not have to have any covers and it is impermeable to liquids.  Even after a few weeks of Rhett being here, that is an important detail because bodily fluids are abundant!Gender Neutral Nurser |Gender Neutral Nursery by popular Atlanta lifestyle blog, Moderately High Maintenance: image of a nursery with taupe dot wallpaper, board and batten wall, round wood personalized name sign, white changing table, and white diaper pail.

This side table added just the amount of natural wood and I love how it adds texture. We use it to hold our sound machine as well as an aloe plant.

Finally, we needed to add extra light so we put this lamp behind the rocker. We had a custom matte black french curtain rod fabricated for the white linen black out drapes.

Rhett loves his nursery, and we couldn't be more pleased with how our gender-neutral nursery turned out. Thank you Milton and King for partnering with us on our wallpaper.
