Looking for gender neutral nursery ideas and inspiration? This nature themed nursery works equally well for a baby girl or boy, featuring a sophisticated color scheme, natural materials and plenty of texture. Because the theme is subtle, this room can grow with your child and blend right in with your grown-up décor.

  1. Natural Wonders Art Prints – It’s smart to treat artwork as the main character of a room. This 4-piece set features adorable hand-drawn illustrations of mountains, trees, and even a tent and campfire. The moody neutral colors in these art prints form the basis of the room’s color scheme, as every other piece of furniture and décor ties back to these hues.
  1. Nursery Works Sleepytime Rocker – You’ll be spending a lot of time in your nursery rocker, so you’d better make sure it’s comfortable. This gorgeous ivory version has a mid-century vibe that makes it sleek, while the soft boucle fabric ensures it’s still comfy.
  1. Saranoni Pine Cotton Muslin Quilt – This high-quality quilt is reversible! One side features an ivory, green and light brown pine tree print that fits right in with the nursery color scheme. The other side is a white and green imperfect stripe pattern that mimics the look of tree bark and matches the crib sheets (#11 below). This would look great draped across the back of the rocker, ready to cuddle up on a cool evening.
  1. Threshold Studio McGee Wood Mirror – I love having a mirror in the nursery because it is so fun to watch babies discover their own reflection. This one features a light wood frame and leather-look strap that gives it a minimalist yet rustic feel that fits right in with the nature theme.
  1. Well Woven Vintage Distressed Rug – Along with the artwork, this rug really pulls the room together by including all of the nursery’s colors. Despite containing several colors, this rug manages to stay subtle due to its distressed vintage look and ivory base. No wood floors to cover? No worries! One of my favorite design tricks is layering a rug over carpeting. This ensures the floor covering matches your décor and also protects the carpet underneath from the messy realities of kid life.
  1. Threshold Brass Metal Stick Lamp – This lamp is small in size but long on style. It’s perfect for sticking on the dresser, with the brass tone of the lamp matching the brass drawer pulls. It’s always great to have the option of a soft ambient glow rather than the overhead light when lulling your little one to sleep. 
  1. Crate & Kids 6-Drawer Olive Green Dresser – This dresser is a showstopper! The olive green color lends visual interest to the mostly neutral décor, and the refined look means that it can easily transition from sophisticated nursery to big kid room and even to an adult space.
  1. Babyletto Spruce Tree Bookcase – This whimsical tree-shaped bookcase fits right in with this nature themed baby room. The natural wood tone keeps the overall looks subtle, allowing the books and décor you place on its shelves to really stand out.
  1. CB2 Ivory Velvet Curtains – Room darkening curtains are an absolute must-have for any child’s bedroom. These velvet curtain panels look and feel extra soft, making them perfect for a game of hide-and-seek with your toddler.
  1. The Curated Nomad Jute Pouf – I love the versatility of poufs. They are useful simply as a decorative element, but they’re also incredibly functional. Older siblings can use them as seating when helping with baby, and your little one will love trying to climb on them, stand on them and roll them down the hallway as they grow (ask me how I know!).
  1. Saranoni Forest Stripe Cotton Muslin Crib Sheet – These cotton muslin sheets combine breathability, durability and softness with a forest stripe print that coordinates perfectly with the quilt (#3 above). The muted green tone matches the earthy color scheme for this outdoorsy nursery.
  1. West Elm Nash Convertible Crib – This simple, minimalist crib is such a classic beauty. With clean lines and Scandinavian style, this is a durable crib that can be passed down to younger siblings and future generations. Adding to its versatility is the fact that it can convert to a toddler bed, ensuring that you get maximum value from this piece.
  1. Cloud Island Mountain Peak Bookends – All the best nurseries have a collection of books at the ready for story time. These wooden mountain bookends are a great way to display those books and contribute to the nature themed nursery for your little explorer.
  1. Crate & Kids Flower-Shaped Basket – Open storage is another must-have for a baby’s room. A basket makes it easy to quickly grab swaddle blankets or toys, and baby will love to dig through it as they get older to see what treasures they can find inside. This flower-shaped version is made from rattan and features a green base that pulls the room’s accent color perfectly. This is the perfect piece to lend a little bohemian vibe to your nursery!
  1. StaceyRoseCrochet Tassel Garland – The earthy color scheme of this tassel garland is the final touch any nature nursery needs. Hang it above the crib or drape it from the window, and you’re all set. As a bonus, this product is from a small artisan shop, so you’re doing good while decorating your nursery in style.

I carefully selected these 15 pieces to create a gender neutral nature-themed nursery that is sophisticated, stylish and designed to grow with your child. But don’t be afraid to mix in your own décor pieces, baby shower gifts from family and friends, or hand-me-downs from older siblings. Creating a nursery you and your baby will love is all about curating a unique blend of items that bring joy and hold special meaning for your family. So use this guide as a base, but be creative and have fun decorating the nursery of your dreams!
