Gender Neutral Nursery Ideas // How to stay on budget and create a beautiful space with Walmart

I partnered with Walmart on this post, all opinions expressed are 100% my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog and my family!

It's no secret that I love designing my kiddos bedrooms.  I put so much thought and love into their rooms because I want them to feel comfortable and happy when they're in there.  I tend to have pretty eclectic taste.  I love mixing forever pieces with more budget friendly (and sometimes trendy) pieces and handmade pieces.  My main goal in all of my kids bedrooms is to create a space that is appropriate for them right now, but is also a space that they can grow in to.  Kiddos just grow and change so fast!

I've gotten so many nursery design questions since becoming pregnant with baby brother.  I am so excited to have partnered with Walmart to create a budget friendly gender neutral nursery.  Walmart has a ton of nursery items on their website, most of which are so reasonably priced.  I love that you can grab all of your baby gear items and nursery necessities in one place!  Add a little pink or blue and this nursery would be perfect for any baby.  I chose pieces that can easily be passed down to younger siblings, regardless of their gender.  I also included a few handmade pieces as I think those always add a really personalized touch to any room.

When designing a nursery, I think it's easiest to start with the crib, dresser/changing table, and glider.  I absolutely love this gender neutral crib from Walmart, especially because it has a matching changing table.  Finding a stylish, but more importantly a comfortable glider is so important!  I spend a lot of time nursing my babes in the glider so I like to have a floor lamp and a small side table nearby.  It's nice to have a table next to you for your water or morning coffee.

When designing your baby's space, start with the big furniture items and then decide on your color pallet and decor items.  I usually choose 2-3 colors and choose fabrics and decor from there.  I'm not a huge fan of themed nurseries, mostly because I think I'd get tired of the theme.  I prefer choosing a color pallet and a few coordinating fabrics (I love mixing a few fabric prints!).  Once you've chosen your big furniture pieces, start looking for other coordinating decor items like lamps, storage baskets, and a rug.

I love finding a good rug at a decent price and this diamond rug definitely fits the bill.  I love that you could use this rug in any room of your home!  I have simple baskets in each of my kids rooms to house their blankets, stuffed animals, and small toys.  Blankets are so pretty, I love rolling them up and displaying them in baskets.  I love these simple wicker baskets and think they'd be perfect in a nursery.  I also love this white pom pillow and this fake fiddle leaf fig plant.  Plants in bedrooms are so pretty, but if you're like me and have a black thumb-fake is the way to go!

I went with custom linen sheets from Madly Wish and I absolutely love them.  If you're sticking with a gender neutral theme, checkout the earth and lake crib sheets.  If you know what you're having and are looking for something more feminine or masculine, checkout the petal or cobalt crib sheets.  They're so pretty!  I hung an art piece from The Graced House above baby brothers crib, they have a ton of great pieces!  I love to soften a baby's room with stuffed animals and love the ones from Cuddle and Kind (plus every doll purchased provides 10 meals to children in need).  A few other nursery items I love are this moses basket and this cozy baby blanket.

I hope this post inspires you when you're designing your little ones space!  You don't have to spend a fortune when creating your baby's nursery, there are so many wallet friendly pieces available!  Check out Walmart if you're designing a space on a budget, there is so much to choose from!
