Crisp white looks clean and fresh in any space, but how do you feel about an all-white nursery? Is it too impractical? Traditionally, white isn’t exactly “child-proof,” but it’s certainly a great way to go gender-neutral, and a pale backdrop allows for all kinds of unique accent pieces.
From solid white spaces to those that use pops of bright, brilliant color, we’ve rounded up nine gorgeous white nurseries for design inspiration. Check them out and then tell us: would you ever consider a white nursery?
Elegant Ivory Nursery
Scalloped hems, curved furniture, and a crystal chandelier give this all-white nursery a glamorous feel. A floor-to-ceiling mirror opens up the space even more while a gorgeous armoire keeps things traditional.
Sandy shades of beige ground the space while white trims and over-the-crib curtains maintain its charm. This nursery is pleasing to the eye thanks to monochromatic furniture and matching knickknacks — a great gender-neutral option.
Blue and White Nursery
Sky blue and white looks fresh and crisp in this bright nursery. The key to keeping things interesting? Varying patterns and textures, like the striped chair and the crib netting.
Patriotic White Nursery
An all-white backdrop is a great way to let one specific item pop — since the rest of this nursery is left neutral, the colorful flag rug has the chance to take center stage. Simple shapes add to the contrast and plain baskets keep other colorful items out of sight.
Music-Inspired White Nursery
White furniture and a neutral wall provide the perfect space for a striped accent floor. An unexpected hanging lamp makes the whole effect seem more eclectic, while a hanging guitar mobile adds an original, personal touch.
Pink and White Nursery
Solid white furniture and painted floors make bright pink accents stand out in this contemporary nursery. Meanwhile, the patterned rug offers a colorful, practical texture piece.
Classic White Nursery
This charming white and ivory nursery manages to be both modern and classic, thanks to a unique mix of traditional and contemporary furniture. The chair looks like something from a Victorian parlor — a stark contrast to the clean lines of the bookshelf and chandelier.
Charming White Nursery
Assorted colorful objects line an entire wall of bookcases, but nothing looks cluttered since the rest of the room is kept so simple. This design technique would be great for either a boy or a girl, and it’s a great way to show off some character with personal knickknacks.
White Bedroom and Playroom
This white, light-filled bedroom is also a playroom, but a corner full of toys looks polished instead of messy because of the clean white backdrop
