When we think of a neutral space, we usually think of grey, tan, and white.  As nursery design is getting more fabulous over the years, designers are adding in color to the gender neutral nursery.  Some of my favorite gender neutral nurseries are decorated with red, yellow and teal.

I Love the look of red, yellow and white together.  The small hints of blue in the Ikat pillow and the red piping in the chair bring out such a cool vibe for this space.  If these bold colors are a bit scary, try just adding them in to your decor and accessories.  This DIY elephant lamp with chevron shade is too cute.

If bright bold colors is not your style, add soft shades of blues and greens to your gender neutral space.  Teal is a popular shade to add to any space and coordinates with most colors.  I love how the color stays on the walls and window treatments. It adds just enough color so you can keep everything else white and clean.

Metallics are also a great treatment to add, mix different metallics together for an extra shine.  Daphne Oz was very hands-on when she designed her Bellini nursery, she wanted a soft and stylish look.  She added gold accents to the room with the custom designed mirror and custom knobs to the Stella dresser and book shelves.  Metallic accents blend nicely with most shades of any color, so bring on the shine!
