This beautiful nursery or kid’s space design is focused on the nordic style….created by our friend and fellow designer Lisa Janvrin at Youthfulnest. We asked Youthfulnest to answer a specific question from one of our reader’s. Destination Nursery I have a question?
“I am just about to have my baby in a couple of months…we did not find out the gender for this baby as we already have a boy and a girl and this baby will be our 3rd child. So, I am pulling together the nursery now and would love to focus on a Nordic theme gender neutral, then afterwards once I know the gender I will plan to pull in some soft pinks if its a girl and soft blue or green if its a boy!
Thank you for any help and or suggestions you can offer as I prep this space for our sweet baby!”
Thank you…this is actually a question we get asked a lot, gender neutral nurseries can be super fun! We are big fans of always starting with a neutral palette, this way it will be easy to add in a pop of color based on the gender.
“That’s a great question! The Nordic (or Scandinavian) look is a perfect design choice for a neutral nursery because it’s minimal and typically monochromatic color scheme is universal. Of course you will be able to inject some more feminine or masculine touches in a few easy ways that we will share below.
To achieve a Nordic look we suggest keeping in mind the following six design factors when selecting items. 1) Black and white color palette 2) Hint of light colored wood, legs of a chair or base of a lamp 3) Layering in warm textiles like leather, wool or fur (faux is great) 5) Clean, simple lines especially for furniture 6) Graphic prints, big and small maybe some wall decals or bedding 7) Don’t forget a touch of whimsy perhaps with a throw pillow or framed art work
There is a literal plethora of options for a Nordic inspired room that finalizing items for a Style board will be your only challenge. You can find them at prices across the board low-high price points. We love sourcing from various shops because we find that things become more original rather than buying everything from one shop or brand.”
