Who Lives Here? Boy or Girl?

Who Lives Here? Boy or Girl?

When it comes to what colors or products are "for" boys and "for" girls, parents are ahead of the curve and defying tradition. In some cases, this is very intentional - "I didn't want a girly room," is something we hear from parents often. And since many parents wait to find out their baby's sex until the birth, they opt for a nursery that they feel will work for either scenario. So, let's have some fun: here are ten rooms, test yourself (and your assumptions) and guess who lives in them: a boy or a girl?

Above: a bold orange accent wall, multicolor carpet tiles, a soft rocking sheep: who lives here?

Bright and airy feeling with light blue walls mixed with yellow and red accents: who lives here? 

A mix of dark and lighter woods, a hanging garland, bird wallpaper on the ceiling, orange and green walls: who lives here?

Primary blue walls, white woods and some yellow accents: who lives here?

Bright room with lighter colors (white, yellow and aqua) mixed with a monochromatic black and white print, organic motif rug, white woods: who lives here?

Tan carpet, a focal wall with a blue, green and yellow pattern, white woods: who lives here?

A mustardy yellow backdrop with punches of red and a graphic black and white rug: who lives here?

Pastel blue walls and soft white bedding and accents: who lives here?

A soft sheepskin rug, grey walls, bright orange chair and blue patterned curtains: who lives here?

Taupe and white striped walls, transparent stool, upholstered cream chair: who lives here?

Ready to find out which ones you guessed correctly and which ones you got wrong? What did you take your cues from - the colors, the "feel" of the room, a particular "giveaway" accent? How many did you get right?
