Cool and Retro Neutral Gender Nursery

I really admire all those expectant mommies out there that have chosen not to know their baby's gender. I could not possibly 'survive' 9 months without knowing. Sometimes I think: " hmm, maybe I'll do that if I have another baby..." and then I think "Oh no! if I have a baby girl I want to design a beautiful Shabby Chic/Cottage Style Nursery"...so...no. Yes, I really admire those ladies that compromise many things just to be surprised on the day of the delivery. In that case, I thought I'd sketch a "white/retro/splash of color" design for a Neutral Gender Nursery. 

Here is my inspiration room.

Retro room for boy or girl.

First of all, I love the white. What color can be more 'gender neutral' than white right? It is so calming and refreshing!. The turquoise adds a girly/boyish touch and the gold detailed and mirrored armoire puts the "retro" in it. Using the white as a canvas {that would be your paint color}, put all the splash of colors you'd like. I picked green, orange, yellow and turquoise. As always, I show you my fabulous online finds! 

Here we go.


As always.. {*No compensation was received for this post*}

  1. Very cute nursery! I saw you joined Voiceboks and want to say welcome and hello. I'm following you now. Come check out my blog, Saving Cent by Cent, when you have a chance. http://savingcentbycent.blogspot.com/

  2. Yeah I couldn't wait 9 months either without knowing the sex...I was born in a country that didn't have sonograms at the time so my parents believed I was a boy throughout the whole pregnancy. Bought blue and named me "Joshua" in the womb....the I was born a girl...they changed my name to Rachel, but had to keep the blue. No refund in flea markets =) So I was a blue wearing baby girl...


  3. Welcome to VB. You are in just the right place. Your nursery for either gender took my breath away. How beautiful!

    I also could not wait to find out boy or girl; even when I had a couple of each, I had to know!
