So you have worked hard to incorporate the evergreen style that is Farmhouse into your home decor. And now your home is beautifully adorned with unique and rustic pieces that tell a story, neutral colors, maybe even some shiplap to boot. JoJo would be proud!

But now there’s a baby on the way and maybe your not so sure you can incorporate your farmhouse style into the new cute little gender neutral nursery room that is also functional.

I’m here to tell you that you TOTALLY CAN!

I wasn’t sure either! I was seriously conflicted on how to design little miss E’s room to go with my Coastal/Farmhouse home decor.

Keep it simple

The key to farmhouse design is its simplicity.

And simplicity is important when your designing a functional nursery.┬áIf it takes up space and doesn’t serve a purpose for you or baby, chuck it!

True to farmhouse style, pick simple and neutral colors that are easy on the eyes. Think natural and soothing tones.

There is absolutely NO reason you need to follow any sort of tradition of baby pink or blue on the walls. Bring those colors in (if you so choose) with the accents, wall decor, and stuffed animals.

The same goes for the furniture. Stick to white, gray or light/natural wood pieces (mainly the crib, dresser, changing table, and rocking chair).

Keep it Comfy

Keep in mind you will end up spending A TON of time in this nursery mama (or dada)! So it needs to be comfortable AND functional.

Farmhouse style is all about those comfy cozy touches, like a fluffy white couch or a super soft throw blanket. Take these and consider how you could incorporate them into a nursery.

Perhaps you spring for the reclining power chair as the “rocking chair”
PS: you WONT regret that… you clock many hours here as a new parent.

Or cover the hardwood floors with a shaggy, ultra soft rug to comfort your sure to be tired feet.

Style the details

Add the farmhouse elements with your decor elements.

Using up wall space is a great way to add farmhouse style without taking up much needed floor space:
Simple and cute framed art of sweet little farm animals for example is super adorable.
You could also create a fun woodland or farm scene on a painted wall or using decals to add more visual interest.

You will want to have blackout curtains or a way to block to the light coming into the nursery for those daytime naps, take advantage and choose wall treatments that also add to the farmhouse style.
I like solid neutrals or big chunky stripes in neutral colors.

Decorative pillows and stuffed animals are also great items to incorporate additional farmhouse style to the Nursery.

10 Gender Neutral Nursery Rooms with Farmhouse Style

The following nurseries are excellent examples of the simple and cozy farmhouse style while remaining gender neutral and functional.

The Whimsical Woodland Nursery

The designer really took advantage of the wall space with this nursery. As you can see all the walls are curated with cute animal pictures, art, and a whimsy woodland scene on the accent wall. The gray walls, white couch and crib blend into the space, keeping the room feeling serene and not too wild. Oh and I just love how the elephants on the ottoman match the colors of the leaves and birds on the accent wall – too cute!!

The Calming Gray Nursery

While seemingly monochromatic, the balance of gray and white in this nursery is just right. The criss-cross pattern in the rug adds interest, but you can still see the bordering wood floors which help to warm up the space along with the soft lighting the floor lamp is providing.

The Beige and Bright Nursery

Another great example of using calming neural tones for your little one’s space. The beige toned walls with white furniture & accents brought together with the farmhouse window panels and vintage lighting make this space sweetly rustic.

A Nautically Adventurous Nursery

The farmhouse meets the coast with this adorably nautical nursery. The soft white shiplap accent wall adds character, while the soft gray painted walls remind you of the morning marine layer of the coast. The rustic iron whale over the shelving unit is simply adorable.

A Warm Nursery where Birdies Fly

The combo of natural wood accents and white, accentuated by the golden birds on the ceiling and the glass globe lighting make this nursery a warm representation of farmhouse style. Bonus points for those blackout roman shades that are super functional for those daytime naps!

Functionally Gray in the Woodlands Nursery

First, I have to call out that shiplap wall where he crib lies – I love how the gray crib pops against the soft white planks. The wall space is nice and filled in with plenty of sweet art and figurines of woodsy animals. Having the changing pad on a dresser with lots of storage comes in super handy so there is plenty of space for diapers and wipes!

Rustically Romantic Nursery

So much love and story in this lovely warm nursery! The chevron wood panels on the accent wall opposite the crib wall with the lovely tree speaks to the chic yet rustic style of the room. Then its taken even further with the wonderful ladder blanket display, faux fur rug and chic copper side table. Let me tell you a side table next to the rocking chair is SO necessary! I love that this one has tissues and an oil diffuser! Mine had tissues, a stack of burp clothes and always a glass a water for breastfeeding mama!

Little Farmhouse Touches for Big effect Nursery

This nursery is not flashy, yet nice and simple and functional, definitely true to farmhouse style. But my gosh that pop of wood element from the magnolia leaf wreaths framing the window is genius!

Mellow Yellow Farmhouse Nursery

Again, loving the simplicity here. The soft yellows and whites make this charming little space welcoming and cheerful. The little farmhouse elements such as the hanging mirrors and window treatments are adorable and don’t distract from the cute little gray crib.

Grays and Greens and Rustic in between

This is a great soothing pop of green on the accent wall making the cute white animal heads and gray crib pop. The rustic leather chair and its beige and green striped pillow looks made for the space. I love the books displayed as art on the thin shelves giving the room a touch of whimsy.
