    Gender-Neutral Nursery Palettes

    Waiting for a delivery room surprise? Not sure if you're having a Gabriel or Gabriella? A Jesse or a Jessica? Beige is not your only decorating option. Be ready for whatever the stork may bring with these fresh and fashionable color ideas for gender-neutral nurseries.

    This stunning nursery from Eric Spain is absolutely delightful. The gray and gold accents really give the room a sophisticated feel and it's perfectly customizable. Spain's goal was to design a room where she could easily add in another accent color upon learning her baby's gender (or just add in more gold)! Either way, it's perfect!
