A Gender-Neutral Nursery: Green and Cream Color Palette

When it comes to decorating a nursery, there are no hard and fast rules. But if you're looking for a gender-neutral space that stands out from the typical beige and browns, then a green and cream color palette might be for you and your little one.
The color green is a classic choice for a nursery, as it is both calming and inviting. And when paired with cream, it creates a soft and neutral palette that is perfect for a welcoming nursery fit to welcome your boy.. or girl? 
Start with a neutral base.
The walls, furniture, and flooring/rug choice should be in a light, neutral color like cream or white. Adding some molding to the wall can elevate the space creating an even more classic look.

Dover White is a warm white paint color that is often described as creamy or buttery. It has an LRV of 82.2, which means that it reflects a lot of light and appears bright in most rooms. However, the yellow undertones in Dover White can make it look slightly warmer in rooms with less natural light.
