An E-Design Nursery Board

I recently had the opportunity to work with an e-design client on a nursery for her baby-to-be. I think nurseries and kid's rooms are my very favorite spaces to design. They are so much fun!

This cute client wasn't finding out the gender of her baby so it was somewhat challenging to design a room that was gender neutral without being too... well... neutral! I think we often play it safe with gender-neutral spaces because we don't want to go too one way or the other. She wanted a room that had a "well traveled" feel to it with trinkets from around the world. 

She wanted to use this print as the inspiration for the room. I took the color scheme and ran with it. I created a plan that would work for either a boy or girl. 

I ended up doing two boards that were almost identical but I switched up the pillows depending on the gender. 

Here is the "girl" board. 

And here is the "boy"board. 

My client had the idea to keep the crib bedding and the twin bedding somewhat similar so they seemed to fit in the room together and I thought it was a great idea. 

I love how this gender-neutral nursery isn't neutral at all! It's fun, vibrant and has the well-traveled feel she asked for. I also love that it's a space her baby can grow into. It's not too young feeling or too old. 

I can't wait to find out what she's having and see pictures of the finished room! 


  1. Love them both. That floor lamp is great and I love the betwixt with the chevron.

  2. This is fantastic Kirsten! Very unique and stylish..love it.

  3. I love them both! We are using the well traveled "theme" for our baby nursery too. Would you mind sharing where you found the world map print? Thanks!

  4. Love them both! Looks adorable! Just the right amount of layering!

  5. Oh great idea! I love nurseries that use real color. I feel like so many people do gender neutral and stick to taupe, brown, green and yellow or the classic pink and blue for boy or girl nurseries. I love the colors you used and the fact that they are not typical colors used in a baby's room.

  6. Love them both! Can't wait to see it come together in the room. I never found out the gender of any of my kids until birth either!

  7. I love them! You are so good at mixing color and prints.

  8. Very eclectic. I don't know if I could do that, but I love it!!!
    I've officially made the decision that you will be doing my babies room :)
    Hope all is well!!!
    Oh, Just Living the Dream

  9. I also would love to know where the cute map is from. I love the print you based the room off of. I had thought about using that same print in my child's room before this post :).

  10. Oh, it's beautiful. I'd also love to know where that map is from!

  11. This reminds me of the beginning of the movie Up with all the adventure and world traveler stuff. So adorable. :)

  12. Gorgeous room, and what a great jumping off point with that beautiful print. Such lovely colours and patterns. I'd be a happy client.
