Creative Gender-Neutral Baby Nursery Themes
Finding out that you are going to have a baby is one of life's greatest joys. But planning for a baby can be a bit overwhelming. Between registering for gifts and necessities and preparing a room for the little bundle of joy, there's so much to take care of before the baby arrives.
For some parents, the baby's gender remains a secret until delivery day. For others, traditional gender themes aren't in line with their values or interests. For those parents, we've compiled a list of our favorite gender-neutral nursery themes. Any of these are a wonderful choice to ensure your baby has the coolest crib around.
One of the most common gender-neutral nursery themes is animals. That's because it's so easy to do and there are several different angles you can take. Focus on animal varieties like zoo animals, forest friends, woodland creatures or safari animals. This is a theme that can even grow with your child as they get older.

Under the Sea
Whether you live near the water or just dream of a place where you and your baby can pretend you're professional beach bums, an Under the Sea nursery theme is just right. Incorporate beachy details like surfboards, ocean animals, waves, seashells and soft sea colors.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
If you are choosing not to find out the sex of your baby, a "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" themed nursery is exceptionally fitting. After all, one of the lines from the song goes, "How I wonder what you are." And that would be a really cute phrase to display on the wall of your baby's nursery. More general star themes, such as moon and stars, starry night or constellations, are also very cute.

Babies are a lot like peaches — a little soft, a little fuzzy and a little sweet. So why not deck out your baby's nursery in a cute peach theme? Or apple? Or pineapple? Or a combination of fruits? You never know — this could inspire your baby to become a fruit fanatic early in life. And the sooner you can get your baby to eat healthy, the better!

Take that wanderlust of yours and turn it into a travel-themed nursery for your baby. Even if you can't actually travel somewhere, you'll have a "home away from home" — in your home! And your baby is sure to develop a strong sense of adventure surrounded by a space full of fun travel-inspired decor. Whenever you have the urge to get away, just sit with your baby in the rocking chair and admire the room.

When it comes to babies, you can't go wrong with fun colors. Sure, babies don't actually see color until about five months of age, but once your little one is able to, a rainbow will be wondrous and magical. For a lighter take on the rainbow, choose pastel or muted tones. You could even do an ombre-style room, too.
