I would do green but a softer shade and not such a bold wallpaper. Green is a neutral colour for where I live as it is the predominant colour in nature (whereas people in Arizona would use desert colours as neutral). Green looks great with pink, orange, yellow, purple, or blue!

I like green for a "gender-neutral-nursery-color" admittedly though, I'd choose a softer (as in a bit more 'peaceful'" shade of green. :) ~ellen

Hi - I'm Jennifer with BTX. The green room is perfect. A newborn’s developing eyes can best see high contrast in color shape and size. While light pink and baby blue are traditional colors for a nursery, babies actually respond more strongly to vibrant colors. The color green is associated with health, healing and well being. It also has a soothing effect on the body and mind, reducing anxiety and promoting concentration.

While I do love sage as a neutral for the nursery, I went with other. I've found that bc the eyesight is poor at first and not fully developed stark contrasts work best for the infants eye. A nice striped or one accent wall with your favorite neutral and teal (boy or girl friendly), mint green, or even a muted purple are excellent choices as they work for both genders, catch the eye at any age, and can grow with the child as their interests and age change :)

We have seen a huge boom recently in gender-neutral colors in the baby's room! As a professional design center that specializes in window treatments and bedding, we find that our moms are selecting greys, taupes, and whites when decorating their nursery. It doesn't matter if it's their first baby or not, gender-neutral is by far the current trend!

Actually, you can do white furniture with both mint green & pale yellow walls & bedding in solids. When the baby arrives, add your motif with either primarily pastel pink or peach for a girl or baby blue or pale aqua for a boy. This nursery color scheme can be reused for the second child just by changing the bedding if the sex of the second child is opposite of your 1st child & is appropriate for opposite sex twins.

How about a color that is bright enough to be cheerful, but not eye-hurting like the featured yellow? I agree that a creamy yellow would be a good color.
Or you could have a neutral color with bright accents, or a combination of several colors. The baby won't care if the walls are pink or blue, but babies do tend to like bright colors.

I think grey can be such a pretty neutral because you can accent it with many different punches of color once the gender and personality is established. It is a subtle and relaxing color that will give you great flexibility as the baby grows and his/her personality develops. Who are we kidding, kids use their bedrooms to sleep, chill and find comfort. Bright colors everywhere will over stimulate the poor kid. Leave the color stimulation for the playroom, outdoors and tv. :)

I agree with "streamliner". While bold, busy and distracting colors and patterns are great for a playroom I prefer soft tones for a nursey. A bedroom is where you want your baby to SLEEP not be stimulated. I have a gray and white nursery with pale pink accents for my granddaughter and she takes 3-4 hour naps! The last thing I want to do is STIMULATE her when she's supposed to be sleeping! Love the pewter crib in the gray room also...something a little different.

Babies are so easily stimulated, and often over-stimulated; so my vote is the beige room. Contrast for infant entertainment should come from crib toys and mobiles so they can be removed and changed around for continued interest. Babies will quickly grow tired of viewing the same patterns.

Gray is obviously the most versatile, but I don't consider it a "color." It's a neutral. So my vote is green. You can add accents of navy, orange or turquoise for a boy or even a girl. In fact, that color combo is also good for a playroom that's shared by boys and girls, as it doesn't scream masculine OR feminine.

I like the beige and grey. I like neutrals because I find them calming and you can add any accent color or accessory in the future. In my opinion the white room is too plain…the addition of window treatments would make a big difference here….the room needs some color, it looks unfinished. Also, from my experience with having my own children, room darkening shades are a must in a child's room! They work wonders for keeping your kids asleep longer in the morning after recharging their batteries all night long! A roman shade in the white room would be a nice addition. Another idea is artwork or a simple decal which can be removed easily when the child outgrows it. For more decal ideas check out my Ideabooks on Houzz.

Yellow is my favorite color and I think it is gender neutral. If the child is a boy, you can add splashes of blue, green, brown, tan, red to personalize the sex. These primary colors add visual interest to children as they grown and they are a great way to begin to teach a child colors. My children grew up in a yellow room with charicatures of mickey mouse, mary poppins, goofey, donald and other Disney friends. They loved it.

The gray is a restful color and the room is tastefully decorated. Babies do not need to be overstimulated. Accents can be changed as the child grows. Just remember that infants need to be given high contrast visual stimulation from the very beginning….black and white is what they see best…and black and white graphics of a face are what they first recognize...but it doesn’t have to happen all over the nursery! Mobiles or photos should be hung in areas where they spend their awake time, and at first these should only approximately nine inches away from their eyes because the distance they first learn to focus is the distance between their eyes and their mothers’ eyes during feeding.

In the stone age, before everyone knew their baby's sex, a lemon chiffon worked well, because accents could be blue or brown for a son, lavender or pinks for a daughter. My vote is for lemon chiffon!

I'd usually say yellow but...
The yellow pictured here is not good for a baby's room - but a soft creamy yellow (more a cream than a yellow) is a fabulous choice for a baby's room - happy and cheerful. Our house had a soft yellow room that became the nursery for both of our kids - I love the colour (and I'm really not a fan of adding more chemicals to a baby's space by painting - yes, I use no VOC paint, but still).
I chose white on the survey (not white-white, warm undertones are great).

Babies are stimulated by bright colors, white is no color, beige & grey are also close to no color, bright yellow says sun and may be a little too bright waking them up too early. It's all about the baby not the most accessorizable color for the decorator enthusiast. So, I choose green and there are lots of shades to choose from!

Grey has both yin and yang that makes it very suitable. Think of the creative ways it can be personalized as the baby grows: pink linen pillow shams for a baby girl and a soft blue denim fabricfor a little boy. It has endless possibilities as a launching pad for exquisite. colored accents in many hues.. Elements f rom each of the color schemes pictured could be added successfully to the grey. The rug anchors the room and also defines it as ageless as does the built-in wall unit. Grey it is!

I vote green because its fun, energizing, and uplifting which can be just what a parent needs with a little one. The babies mood relies mainly on the mood of the parent so the colour of the nursery should be positive for the parent. The "calming / soothing colours" like white and beige might be nice for infancy but seem pretty boring for a toddler and who wants to spend time decorating twice when children are young. Also, shouldn't we be moving past "gender specific" colours as a society by now? I'd like to take a poll that...

Being that I'm 6 months pregnant and deciding on a nursery color right now... I chose the Beige. I'm looking for neutrals. While Green can be neutral as with White, the Beige added the warmth that you can play with depending what the sex of a baby is. Yellow is a huge No in my book. Way to powerful for a room that's supposed to be a calm place for a mother and baby.

One, I do not like the color pink. It really bothers me when little girls rooms are made into pepto rooms (think may be why so many women are always upset when grown) the loose that pepto look with others in house. I did do blue for my son (now 21) loved it back then, but to do all over, green. It's my favorite color and there are so many shades. I don't know colors, but to me it's a calming color. The others are either to harsh for their brains or to plain with no stimulation. But I'm just a none crafty person who is finally trying to add some zest to my house with colors and bric a brac. Lisa

Not only are gray, tan and white nurseries gender neutral, they're also universal and versatile (grow with your child and match any decor). As an added bonus, if you decide to sell your house, they score bonus points with potential buyers.

BROWN! Nearly any shade of brown goes with any other color. I used it for my nursery with beige, some green, peach and rust. It was beautiful. It was gender neutral and to be honest, It made it more pleasant for my husband and I to spend time in the room not having it be an powder pink or powder blue room with a baby block theme. As our child got older, then we redecorated to fit our child's personality.

I picked pea green for my daughter. I prefer more subdued tones, but there is a child development factor. Babies' eyes develop better looking at bright colors, especially the first few months of life when her vision is not yet normalized. So, some bright and friendly color has to go on the walls.

I like the idea of using purple, because it's a bright color and goes really well blended with either pink or blue, as those colors will inevitably make an appearance shortly after the arrival of the baby.

I picked the green.
I just want to add that no matter what colour you choose, no matter what style you choose, Always, Always, Always make sure you have "Black-out," curtains (or other window treatment). Babies are in complete darkness for 9 months. It is much easier for them to sleep in complete darkness. Plus, it has been proven that their inner-clock will be set to wake-up at daylight. They see the light as "I should be awake now," and start crying for Mom!! (or Dad) Also, if you are putting them down for a nap, the black-out curtains hide the daylight and it may be easier for them to sleep. Every little bit of help a mom/dad gets when putting a baby to bed is always welcome!! Pass it on!!

I beleive that white is neutral and after the child is born you may then you may add color to represent their personalities to the room.You may bring accent pieces to introduce certain colors to the atmosphere, whether
it is a bright colored toy or a soft colored pillow and a smart color lamp and a nite lite that resembles the babies likings as a Infant, and then as they get older it is easier to adapt to the years of the childs life from Infant to Toddler then School Years, Pre-Teen, and the finally Adult years of their life.

Green makes for a lovely setting. Choose carefully: your choice could influence your child's aesthetic taste. My all-time favorite color combination is lots of greens with pops of orange. As a teen, I saw a wallpaper I had to have for my room that was like an orange grove....Never really knew why I liked that combination, until, many years later, I came across a piece of wallpaper that I recognized as being from my bedroom when I was a little child. It was wavy greens and oranges!

I don't understand grey for an infant. If it's a warm tone, like Benjamin Moore's Hot Spring Stones, great. It's not beige but it's not grey and it's very versatile. I like the idea of a white palette with soft accessories that can be changed out for brights as the baby becomes more aware of his/her environment and needs visual stimulation.

I voted for yellow, but agree with those who would use a much softer yellow. One of my favorites is Benjamin Moore's banan-appeal, but there are also soft corn yellows, if you don't like the lemony yellows. Yellow lifts our spirits, if it's not so strong that it sears our retinas... And that's a great antidote for post partum blues. Plus yellow goes with so many colors - from gray, to green, to spa blues, which are out there in accessories and bedding today.

TWO TONES ARE CURRENT OR SHADING HORIZONTALLY FROM EITHER DARK TO LIGHT OR VICE VERSA. CAFE AULAIT TO CREAM OR GRAY TO PLATINUM. THE BLENDS ARE RELAXING AND SOOTHING.

I think pastel blueberry and cream ..you can add hints of boys or girls themes with soft toys etc. There would be plenty of time to redecorate when they get older with a more gender specific colour palette.

Green gives a great base of color, but you can still bring in other colors to accent. Plus, it seems appropriate as a color to represent new life.

Green-it's earthy but has a splash to it. Reminds me of days when I was a kid rolling in the soft green grass and climbing trees!

I chose green because green gives in that natural green vegetation colours, then the child learns to like the environment.

Green is more of a soothing color, and, we all know when we put baby to bed, we need all the soothing help we can get.

I'm into white lately, but why not trying something more radical - who can say that baby likes something what we usually pick for them?! Maybe some bright colors would give them more of "welcome feeling"; I would like to see all the colors of the rainbow - walls to go from one color to next, vertical stripes and no painted animals on the walls - they often look like scary creatures; give our babies life nourishing colors of their "not yet totally developed" chakras. As most of us know by now, colors have healing and effect

I love the grey it's a beautiful colour then you could give it a theme eg jungle animals to give it some colour and is well suited for both boy and girl :)

I like a soft grey-blue (like a cloudy day color) because you can add any bright color accent and its still a calming background.

A soft Yellow is a universal backdrop for any baby's room. It is bright and cheery and goes with so many other colors to work with depending on boy or girl.

A pale green with removable decals. That way the theme can change with the child's preference.

I chose beige but would also go with grey. As a mom of 2, you want the room to be soft, calming and soothing. I like the green and yellow, but for a nursery they are a bit jarring and would be too stimulating, IMHO. Unless you don't care about getting sleep...then by all means go for the bright colors! :)

I chose green because of the choices here, it has the most contrast and I think that is what babies can actually see first.

16 years ago, I painted my nursery mint green, I don't think I would now however. The colours on the pool are so boring. What about colour therapy. I would want to spark a creative, learning environment for my baby not lull them into bordom. Don't like any of the pictures attached to this poll. Come on Houzzers surely you can do better then that.

I love the grey. It is soft yet as the baby grows any pop of colour in a pillow, bed covering, toy, mobile or wall decor will change it up. Also it is very soothing for both parent and child. The grey is a great neutral that is classic and makes this room a retreat. AS the boy grows and possibly becomes interested in Disney characters, Star Wars or comic book super heros, all of his toys and themed items will still FIT and only enhance the personality and character of the child.

White…clean and versatile. Remember, baby is in the crib looking up at the ceiling. A great chandelier that casts shadows, and mirrors, would be my recommendation.

No mobile…that only works for the adult looking at it, but not for baby who only gets to see the underside.

Grey is great, but a pop of a lighter (not super bright) yellow is lovely with the grey, or a green. But grey is great to start with.
