How To Create A Gender-Neutral Boho Nursery

A boho nursery is a fantastic idea for parents-to-be who want to decorate their nursery in a gender neutral theme.

Not sure where to start? Here’s our guide to creating a gender-neutral boho nursery…

Create A Gender-Neutral Color Scheme

Creating a gender-neutral boho nursery is all about avoiding those colors that are stereo-typically associated with gender. Baby pink and lilac are too girly and should be avoided at all costs. On the other hand, baby blue is often associated with boys so we suggest avoiding this color too.

The inspiration photo above is a wonderful example of a gender-neutral color scheme. Beige and neutrals make a perfect basis to add gender-specific colors to once the baby is born.

Deep reds and crimsons add warmth to the room without being associated with a specific gender.

Orange, white, olive and burnt orange all give that warm, bohemian edge without being gender specific.

For an extra vibrant nursery, add a printed quilt and wicker accessories.

Deep Blue

Unlike baby blue, deep blue is a stunning gender-neutral choice.

When paired with gold and brown, it creates a stunning contrast that will give any nursery that wow factor.

We adore the wallpaper with the woodland creatures.

Opt For Animal Prints

Stereotypical nurseries may have car prints for boys and florals for girls, but what prints are gender-neutral?

Animal prints of course!

The innocence and cuteness of animals can be applied to any gender, which makes animal prints a wonderful choice.

Create a safari-themed, boho nursery with a mix of African boho prints and animals such as lions, giraffes and elephants.

Animal prints are the perfect excuse to fill the nursery with stuffed toys too!

Add A Printed Rug

The best thing about a printed rug is that it is easily interchangeable!

Start by jazzing up your nursery floor with a burnished orange or red table runner or rug. Once the baby is born, you can easily switch it out for something more girly or boyish.

Go For Statement Lighting

A statement light is a wonderful way to add a stylish and unique edge to your nursery.

Scandinavian shaped pendants, such as the one in the photo above, will remain stylish whilst your little one is growing up too.

Also, how beautiful do the grey and white chevron prints look in the white crib?

Add An Element Of Wanderlust With An Accent Wall

An accent wall with mountains or a bohemian print is a fantastic option for a gender-neutral nursery.

As a matter of fact, the more statement the wall is, the plainer you can leave the rest of the nursery!

Add Printed Accessories

Boho printed accessories are a fantastic way to add detail to any nursery.

Geometric prints such as triangles are incredibly gender neutral and can be reused in other rooms once your child grows up.

Fall 2017 Color Trends

In nature, Fall is all about beautiful colors, so it’s only natural that we want to give our home a little spruce on the spectrum. Rather than taking cue from golden leaves and tawny pumpkins, we’re all about Pantone’s Fall 2017 color trends.

Just in-case you have been living under a trend-repelling rock, Pantone is a world renowned authority on color and has boffins working around the clock to pick out new colors and what they convey in color-critical industries. You may remember past Pantone colors of the year, such as ‘serenity’, or ‘greenery’, the Pantone 2017 color of the year.

So what exactly do the Fall 2017 color trends have in store for our homes?

Well, there’s tawny port (sounds yummy), copper tan (can we get it in spray form?) and shaded spruce (erm…what?). Without further confusing waffle, here’s the Fall 2017 color trends according to Pantone…

Tawny Port

tawny-port

What is it?

“Taking the Red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful.” (Pantone)

Why we love it

It’s like a warm mulled wine in front of a crackling fireplace whilst wearing our favorite slippers. It’s comforting, it’s cozy and it’s surprisingly delectable.

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Green

Velvet embroidered table runner

Neutral Gray

neutral-gray

What is it?

“The standard bearer of all neutrals, Neutral Gray shares the anchoring role with Navy Peony in this palette. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade.” (Pantone)

Why we love it

It’s a more stone-like gray than the lilacy hues seen in past seasons. The lack of overly warm or cool tones mean that it’s oh-so-versatile. Plus, it’s not so harsh that it’s cold!

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Yellow

Damask throw pillow cover

Shaded Spruce

shaded-spruce

What is it?

“This is a green you might see in the forest – sheltering and protective as evergreen trees”. (Pantone)

Why we love it

Dear world, emerald and teal have had a beautiful love child… enter shaded spruce! This hue has already been huge on the home decor market and looks great alongside neutral hues and brighter tones alike.

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Striped print scarf

Golden Lime

golden-lime

What is it?

“Earthy tones with a twist, the golden undertones of Golden Lime makes this yellow-green shade a refreshing complement to fall classics”. (Pantone)

Why we love it

We are already imagining how darn amazing this hue would look in monochrome rooms. It’s just on the right side of snotty and we are loving it!

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Ocean Blue

Floral embroidered pillow cover

Ballet Slipper

ballet-slipper-fall-color

What is it?

“Descended from the Red family but with a softer touch, Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health”. (Pantone)

Why we love it

This baby pink hue is like your inner childhood princess and sophisticated adult self have shook hands and come to an agreement. It’s warming, but not too rosy to be overbearing.

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Arabian velvet table runner

Butterum

butterum

What is it?

“This snug, warming, and toasty shade is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterrum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening”. (Pantone)

Why we love it

It looks good enough to eat! Jokes aside, this less-overbearing cousin of coral will add a snug Autumnal edge to any home.

What is it?

“A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter.” (Pantone)

Why we love it

Because it’s totally unexpected; goodbye burnt oranges and dull tangerines! This is spicy with an edge of pumpkin!

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Floral embroidered placemats

Navy Peony

navy-peony

What is it?

“A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral”. (Pantone)

Why we love it

What’s an Autumn palette without a gorgeous navy shade? This one isn’t too ‘Halloween-y’, yet isn’t too ‘Summer fiesta’, it’s the perfect mix.

Our Fall 2017 Color Trends Pick

Black

Modern two tone accent pillow cover

Autumn Maple

autumn-maple-2017-color-trends

What is it?

“A quintessential autumn color, Autumn Maple is tawny and russet, introducing warmth into the palette.” (Pantone)

Why we love it

It’s a spiced pumpkin latte, jumping in a pile of leaves and trick or treating all in one. In other words, it’s the color we all think of when we think of Fall.

Bathroom Decor Crush: The Black Bath Tub

When my partner and I decided to renovate our bathroom, we found ourselves set on one thing: a black bath tub.

Why?

A white bathtub is about as boring and predictable as the Queen’s Christmas speech (sorry Lizzie).

On the other hand, a black bathtub has the same sort of chic nonchalance as a piccolo latte or a marble-topped table. It’s modern, yet its totally versatile and is suited to both Scandinavian and bohemian style bathroom decor.

It’s the kind of thing that my parents would roll their eyes at, but my friends would drool over.

Waffling aside, here’s all the styling inspiration you need if you are considering a black bath tub.

Black baths are a wonderful addition to minimalist and monochrome bathroom set-ups.

The mix of subway tiles on the wall and hexagonal matte tiles on the floor add depth and detail to the room. The white basins and wooden vanity top stop the bathroom from looking too dark and grungy. I love.

Surprisingly, a black bath tub is a wonderful choice who those who prefer their decor on the hippy side of the spectrum.

The Banarsi Touch

Add one of our printed table runners to your bathroom floor for a colorful, bohemian edge. The green tissue box cover will work wonderfully alongside live greenery too.

If industrialism and bohemian were actual people (bear with me here) and had a child, this is what it would look like.

An undone floor and walls set the scene perfectly for those exposed copper pipes.

The matte black bathtub and boho printed rug are complimentary oxymorons.

The Banarsi Touch

A boho print table cloth or table runner can add the hippy edge to any raw, industrial floor.

The entire-white upper-half of this set-up makes it a bright and breezy way to incorporate a monochrome bathroom.

White hexagonal tiles scream Scandi chic, whilst a dark slate floor ties the black and white elements together seamlessly.

This bathroom is cute, simple and has more of a tropical edge than many of the other monochrome bathrooms.

The wooden stool and plantpot take it from minimal to beachy. The tasseled, beach rug adds to the resort vibes perfectly.

Note to self: must get subway tiles in bathroom. **Insert endless heart eye emojis**

The Banarsi Touch

Black & White

This hawthorn leaf table runner will soften any monochrome Scandi bathroom.

Moroccan-style tiled floors can be beautifully set off by a black bath tub.

Compliment brown tones in the floor with a deep wooden vanity and keep the walls light and bright.

Subway tiles win again! This makes me think there’s some sort of magical equation: subway tiles + black tub= ultimate Scandi chic.

The bath shelf with the potted plant and stool softens this monochrome look, making it a wonderful choice for a beach themed home.

The Banarsi Touch

If the retro printed floor is too much for you, opt for a grey printed runner, such as our jacquard paisley table runner.
