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.

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**

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.

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.

I often spend my days dreaming of indoor-outdoor bathrooms, so I know that this gorgeous setup will be haunting my dreams tonight!

This decor is sleek, chic and free from patterns. The wooden vanity and plain floor make it a bathroom that will never go out of style.

Well this puts the a in ‘adorable’!

Beachy, tropical and just generally stunning, this leafy bathroom feels like a getaway to some sort of swanky, Balinese resort.

The exposed brick wall and floor ensure that the beautiful curtained black bath is the talking point. The splashes of light wood keep it clean and Summery.

The Banarsi Touch

Add the shimmering spiral placemats to any unsightly surfaces for an instant makeover!
