Even though Chip and Joanna Gaines just announced that they're , we bet Joanna is already well on her way to creating the most adorable nursery ever. Why? Well, the star says it's her favorite kind of room to design.
"Any nursery I've ever done — to me, that was my favorite thing — because I didn't want to do your typical pink or blue," the mom of four told . She appreciates that these spaces are deeply "personal and sweet." To avoid traditional stereotypes, Joanna says it's important to design these rooms so they're truly unique to each child.
Even though there's still a lot of time to plan for design, we have a few decor guesses we don't think are too far off.
Different accents will blend together.
"I love the mix of metal, raw wood, and white in this young boy's room," Joanna said on . The two compliment each other beautifully, and could work in any nursery setting. The soft wood gives warmth to the metal.
Shiplap — or some kind of wood wall finish — will definitely be part of the design.
... especially if it's a girl! In this room, Joanna used pink paint that had a hint of gray to keep the space from feeling too bright or vibrant. She, of course, made wooden wall details the main focus — this time with scalloped edging.
But we probably won't see pink or blue as the main color.
Chances are, Joanna will want to keep the room gender neutral, so she may she may opt for a space like this gray room with blue and green mixed in the color.
If fact, her own children have rooms that are pretty neutral. In the boys' room, Drake, 12, and Duke, 8, have custom-made bunk beds set against a mostly white-and-black palette.
And the same goes for her daughters' (Ella Rose, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7) room. It screams feminine, but the airy space is mostly neutral, featuring white, gray, and beige. The exception is the colorful doll houses that sit on the galvanized metal trays that serve as their nightstands.
Even though we can't definitely say Chip and JoJo's new baby room will truly look like, we can say the space is bound to be very Fixer-Upper-style no matter what she decides.
