Shopping Guide: Furnishings For Your Gender-Neutral Nursery
Gone are the days when parents go all out in decorating their nursery with the gender of the baby in mind. These days, regardless if it's a boy or a girl, nurseries tend to be more of a gender-neutral space. From being too traditional, the focus has already been on the design and functionality rather than the colour schemes.
Shopping for the nursery? We've got suggestions!
