Designing a gender neutral nursery is quite challenging. We are adopting and when we began designing our baby's monkey nursery, we knew it had to be gender neutral and created on a tight budget!
We have hardwood floors, so we purchased an 8 x 10 chocolate brown rug at a carpet store for about $150 and had them bind it. We then put a 4 x 6 white and green rug over it which we purchased at Ikea for $46.
We purchased the monkey and green and brown polka dot wall decals on ebay, which we thought were nice touches for a baby boy and they are easily removable when he no longer wants them on the walls.
I found chocolate brown blackout shades and incorporated white valances. Then I attached a piece of brown grosgrain ribbon to the valances to give them a bit more charm.
Additionally, I hand painted a matching piggy bank in green/brown for his room.
The last touch was using a compass to draw circles over his bed which I painted white. I purchased wooden letters at a craft store, painted them chocolate brown and hung them above his crib.
This room has become our favorite room in the house! Simple, classy, crisp and modern all created on an adoptive parents budget!
