Z Box of the week: Unisex nursery

Our latest Z box client, approached us for help in designing a nursery for her very first baby. An exciting time it is, but can be stressful if you don’t know where to start in preparing. She also preferred to keep the gender of her baby a secret until the big day!

So here is the challenge we faced: How can we  design a nursery that brings plenty of personality while not using the most common solutions for a gender neutral nursery?? (–Most common solution being the use of yellow, or no colors at all.)


We decided…LIGHT MINT, by Benjamin Moore, with an accent color of bright orange. From our concept boards you can see the chosen style of our Mom-to-be. She preferred  a modern, clean lined, organised look and loved the use of bright colors. We also wanted the furniture we chose to be practical and transitional pieces that the baby can use growing into a toddler and even a teenager!


As an accent wall behind the crib we chose to do painted stripes. Stripes can add so much dimension to a room plus it’s fun and super easy to DIY. We took the mint color further by painting the ceilings too! It’s always nice to have something going on in the ceiling, especially in a baby’s room.

Other key pieces in the room are: The Land of Nod-Blake dresser in white, Chevron and on rug in gray; blackout shades from Restoration Hardware; Ouef-Sparrow crib; Barn Light Electric- Wesco gooseneck light in orange;  2Modern- Luca glider in orange



We hope you loved our gender neutral nursery design as much as we do!

Stay tuned for our next  Z Box of the week design!!!
