Mood Board Monday - Gender Neutral Nursery

This week, I thought I'd bring back Mood Board Monday!

It's really for selfish reasons, because I have been compiling images of everything we plan to include in our nursery and I wanted to see it all in one place before the room was actually put together.

We are planning a gender-neutral nursery since the sex of our baby will be a surprise. I knew I wanted light grey walls (Sherwin-Williams "March Wind"), white furniture and pops of bright, modern colors (read: no pastels) such as vibrant orange & aqua. The crib and dresser are purchased but it was the rug that we just bought which was the inspiration for the rest of the color palette.

I love it! It's perfectly stylized for you, but bright and interesting for baby. Can't wait to see it all together.

So cute Steph! We are looking into a crib for baby you recommend ordering from Ikea online? I've never done it. Also, will a typical crib mattress fit in an Ikea crib?

Thank you!

I DO love that rug, and grey walls are fabulous. I can't wait to see it all together!

Thanks, everyone!

Julie, check it out for yourself, but I think that Ikea delivery prices can be very pricey. I have heard often times shipping is more than the price of the item :-( But there are two great Ikea's here in Chicago if you want to make a trip out of it :-) This $99 Ikea Gulliver crib does get great ratings and most typical crib mattresses fit. Good luck!

This looks gorgeous! Your loft looks VERY similar to ours - at first I thought we might be in the same building (I'm in Chicago too). Stopping by from OhDeeDoh - it's always fun to find other designy blogs based in Chicago. :)

I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
