Whether you want the sex of your baby to be a surprise or are not into the usual gender norms for nurseries, there are a lot of options that are actually made for the baby, as well as the parents — especially the mom who will spend most of her time there.

If you want to create a nurturing environment for your newborn, here are some inspiring and heavenly gender-neutral nursery ideas.
