Heather shared that she plans to keep with “taupes and grays,” filling the nursery with calming colors regardless of the sex of the baby.

“Once I know the gender, it’ll be a lot easier,” she said at the time, “but I’m thinking more neutrals for everything, just keep it very calming colors, calming in the baby’s room.”
