Nursery Vibes: Monochrome decor for a neutral nursery

I’m not sure if there’s supposed to be a point where it’s ok to start thinking about the fun parts of pregnancy, which in my case are the crazy cute baby clothes and the dreamy nursery decor (not the pram and pump kind of stuff). I was planning on waiting until after 20 weeks and that all important scan before I got stuck into it, but I can’t help but let my mind wander to colours, wall stickers and mini furniture for our mini human.

Interiors and anything home-related is my main love in life, so while I long for the days to work somewhere in that arena, it’s currently just what I like to spend my spare time doing. Love it. So I’ve given in and have started getting fully into the nursery vibes, Pinterest board and all.

There are so many possibilities and I’m on something of a clock, so I’ll have to get decisive at some point down the line, but for now I’l just enjoying taking in all the ideas and building a mental image of how our box room will become Baby Lynch’s room.

If like me, you’re not finding out the gender of the baby, keeping it neutral is key. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring, far from it. To start off my Nursery Vibes I’m starting broad and am looking at some of the top gender neutral colour themes. Starting with a bold one… monochrome!

A bold statement and sometimes a little stark looking, it can be warmed up with the addition of gold metallic touches, and fun prints and textures so there’s loads for baby to look at.
