- Create a special unisex nursery for your baby.baby image by Diane Stamatelatos from Fotolia.com
It's a lot of fun creating a soothing haven for your baby. If you are having a baby and do not know the gender, you will likely still want to decorate the bedroom. That tends to eliminate using colors such as pink or blue, if you don't want to end up having to redecorate. There are many colors and nursery themes that are suitable for both boys and girls.
- Cream is an ideal unisex nursery color that is warm and works well with just about any kind of decor. Paint the walls with cream-colored paint. To offset the paint, add dark, espresso-colored wood furniture. Use cream as the entire palette, or add in brighter colors such as orange for a pop of color.
- Sunny or buttery yellow is a lovely backdrop in a nursery. Yellow is not indicated for one gender or another, and comes in many tones. Choose yellow walls, bedding and accessories. You can even use yellow in a theme nursery room, such as a farm animal themed room, which is also unisex. Yellow looks nice with touches of cornflower blue as well.
- Green is another color that is gender-neutral in just about any tone. The options range from a soft sage green, to deep emerald green. Since this color works well in many different styles, from a contemporary nursery to one with a garden theme, it is great for both genders, and easy to decorate.
- From chocolate brown to soft and neutral brown, it is an unassuming color that is also unisex. Two types of theme rooms that are often used in a unisex nursery are bunnies and teddy bears. Both themes use copious amounts of brown, along with other neutral colors such as white and cream.
