With the imminent arrivial of baby number three, Giovanna Fletcher has invited Wayfair UK's stylists into her home to complete a transformative makeover on her nursery. As Giovanna has chosen to keep the sex of her baby a surprise, she needs a space that works for either gender. 

Wayfair UK’s Resident Style Advisor, Nadia McCowan Hill, explains how she created a pastel perfect and gender neutral space, that has been lovingly prepared awaiting the arrival of baby Fletcher.

Choose practical furnishings to create a gender neutral space

"Creating a soothing space that balanced lots of practical picks with the sweetest of details was a top priority for Giovanna, who also wanted to create a ‘neutral’ space that works for either gender, as baby no. 3 is set to be a surprise."

Add mint and yellow accents to make a neutral scheme pop

"We opted for a base palette of soft greys and muted pastels to create a calming environment for both mum and baby and off-set this will hints of mint and egg-yolk yellow to make the scheme pop."

Choose clean and sleek storage solutions and practical furniture

"The cot, changing table and wardrobe all boast a clean but traditional aesthetic and generous proportions making them great options for any parent."

Add interest with adorable illustrations and animal-themed wallpaper

"Meanwhile, a dove grey jungle-themed wallpaper, gallery wall of cute Scandi-style illustrations and a styled ‘shelfie’ above eye level create a fun, stylish and (most importantly) baby-proof backdrop."

Create cosy touches for mum and baby with a cute teepee

"As for all new mums, comfort was really important to Giovanna, so we also included lots of cosy touches, from the cute teepee filled with cushions and soft faux furs through to the beautifully upholstered nursing chair and footstool. We hope this will be the perfect place for all the family to enjoy some serious snuggle time with baby no 3!"
