Gender neutral nurseries also work great for when you prefer to keep the gender of your newborn a surprise or for when you plan to have opposite gender siblings share a room. The great thing about wallpaper is that the motif can totally change the vibe of a color; for example, a blue with clouds becomes a unisex sky scene.

Gray: The Trendiest Neutral Tone

Hands down, the go-to gender neutral nursery color right now is a light gray.

Wallpaper in light gray with gender neutral motifs is a great way to make this look fun for kids of any gender, and keep it stylish at the same time. Having such a subtle base of a color that matches with literally every other color is great because you can also tilt the décor in a more masculine or feminine direction later through the use of furnishings in statement colors.
