  • Soft tones in earthy colours would be nice.


  • Any colour except the traditional blue and pink in a soft shade.


  • yellow, green, grey and white


  • Grey yellow or green


  • I suppose they dont recognize colors straight waylay so it doesn’t really matter though I think if you dont want to be gender specific go with any colors other than pink and blue


  • Baby does not care what the decorations are like. Cream, pale green, pale yellow are suitable and then can be decorated with cushions and soft toys and other items after baby comes. Then you don’t have to repaint for the next child. You might like to check out fabrics with genderless prints. Animals, alphabet, nursery rhymes for curtians covers and cushions. Some people like to have a particular theme. You might like to keep it genderless until your little one indicates their own preference, by what they are drawn to. You might like to hang pictures of you and your husband as babies on the nursery walls. There is so much variety to browse through. Toy Shops often are a great place to browse for inspiration. Baby furniture stores also sometimes have nursery display areas to offer ideas. If you or a friend is artistic mural painted onto a wall might be all that is necessary.


  • Greens, yellows, purple. Depending on how you do it, you could even subtlety add a bit of pink and blue


  • Thanks for all your answers,all fab colours!


  • I have seen some funky black, white and gold. Very bold and modern. Whilst it is unisex could also be used for older children too. White walls and team with black and white geometric prints. I do love light blue for girls or boys. Blue is so relaxing and calm.


  • If you want neutral colours I would choose cream, pale green, fawn.
    A nursery is a baby/toddler’s bedroom so you don’t want really bright colours which arouse a baby’s attention or excitement. I have read this in a few articles in magazines, sites like Essential Baby.


  • green, lavendar, yellow, white, cream etc.


  • Green and yellow. A very nice dark blue too!!


  • I really like green otherwise yellow is another good option


  • Apricot, light green, light yellow is great colours or even primary colours like red blue yellow and green for me are neutral colours
