7. Polka Dot Decals

Are you seeing spots in your nursery vision? Vinyl decals are a great alternative to wallpaper, and polka dots are totally trendy. A gallery wall over the crib is a great way to incorporate special photos and messages.

Gray decor is the perfect start for a gender neutral nursery! Clean lines and patterns create a modern feel, and a mustache throw pillow is a cheeky accent to add after the arrival of a little man.

Take this traditional powder blue nursery color and add a grid on the main wall. This simple treatment changes the feel of the whole space. Fun fact: this is the nursery that inspired Project Nursery!

10. Go Vertical

High ceilings lend themselves to vertical stripes that draw your attention to a unique light fixture like a vintage chandelier. Don’t forget the floor! Frame the space with a bold rug, perfect for play time. We love this look for a boy or girl!
