All Boy! Crib Bedding
So, you're prepping the nursery for the 'little prince'. Or is it your 'little slugger'? Whatever expectations – or aspirations – you have for your little boy, his nursery will likely be a reflection of them. Let's start with the crib...
DwellStudio Skyline Crib Set
For the little man about town, DwellStudio offers the Skyline crib set. While he sleeps, he can dream about the exciting adventures that await him in the big city. As one of the first companies to offer modern nursery options for today’s parent, DwellStudio carved a place for itself that it still holds today. And every product in their stylish line is formaldehyde-free and has not been treated with any known toxic substances. Plus all of their prints use low-impact fiber-reactive dyes that meet all criteria for eco-friendly pigments.
Migi by Bananafish: Alphabet Crib Bedding Set
For the boy who will know his ABC’s before he can say, “mama”, the MiGi Girls offer a soft and playful twist on the alphabet. Animals and dots dance between the letters, and an embroidered, scalloped crib skirt adds liveliness. The MiGi Girls are Michele Adams and Gia Russo, lifestyle – and style – experts who look to create products that reflect the “best of who we want to be.” Perhaps, for your baby, that means well-read.
Caden Lane: Preston
For the prince who can feel a small pea under his crib mattress, this crib set is fit for royalty. Part of Caden Lane’s “luxe” collection, this design features slip-covered bumpers, silky trim, and satin ribbon ties. Popular with celeb moms including Brooke Burke, Tori Spelling, and Ashlee Simpson, the line offers a number of collections to fit your own style, from ‘modern vintage’ to ’boutique’.
The Gordonsbury Company: Sailing
I remember ogling a crib set way back in 2000. There was a beautifully embroidered design on crisp, pristine fabric, and the whole look was just so polished and elegant. I soon learned that this set was from The Gordonsbury Company, which started producing linens (that are hand-embroidered in Zimbabwe) waaaay back in the ’90s. Even after all of the cool, hip, stylish products entered the market, these crib linens still stand strongly on their own – a perfect option for discerning parents who are looking to create a classic nursery with timeless elements and meticulous attention to detail.
Serena & Lily: Ben
My Serena & Lily catalog arrived in the mail the other day. As I turned the pages, I imagined my parallel life in each scene. For a few blissful scenes, I was living in a world of fabulously mixed textiles and beautiful patterns and colors. Then, I noticed that my 2 year old was taking off her dirty diaper in the middle of the living room. This company that has now expanded to furnish and decorate bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms began in 2003 with crib bedding. Gorgeous crib bedding that raised the bar for nursery design. Serena & Lily are still making crib bedding, and it’s beautiful as ever.
Trend Lab: Dr. Seuss One Fish, Two Fish
Bright primary colors and the familiar fish from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, make this Dr. Seuss crib set a playful addition to your nursery. Dots and stripes modernize the classic tale, and lines from the book appear on the accompanying quilt (instant cheat sheet!). If babies can learn while they’re asleep, maybe your little tot will wake up one morning reciting rhyming verse!
Doodlefish: Best Friends
Man’s best friend is great company for your little boy. He’ll never be lonely when he’s sleeping with dozens of adorable dogs! This canine design is friendly and modern; definitely not the kind of pup portrait that you’d see in a stodgy hunting lodge. Hey, perhaps he’ll get his fill of dogs and put off asking for one until he’s at least…6. Plus, Doodlefish offers coordinating wall décor, lighting, and even rugs to complete your room.
