When I had my daughter, only two years ago, I had a hard time finding bedding for her crib that I absolutely loved! You see, my design taste is a little complicated. I honestly don't really know exactly what it is; modern with a bit of whimsy, mashed with some neutrals and bold, but sometimes soft designs. I mean, good luck, right?! There was tons of cute bedding out there, but nothing really stole my heart. Well, we have started to plan for a second addition to our family and I have found some stuff that really makes my oddly defined design interest sing!
The nursery situation will be a bit different this time around. Depending on gender, our kids will either share a room, or we will have a nursery/office combo going on. We love where we live, so we are just getting creative so we can stay until we find something we love better! That being said, either way the "look" needs to be easily morphed with the other stuff going on.
I am absolutely in L.O.V.E. with Rylee + Cru's new bedding line, so I have put together three different combinations that make my heart sing!
My daughter still sleeps in her crib. I seriously can't believe she hasn't climbed out yet, but hallelujah that she hasn't! I did find some bedding for her "big girl bed" that I loved (big surprise!) a few months back so I do know what it will look like. Her comforter is blush, and her accent pillows are a mix of grey, white, black, and a tiny hint of mustard. So, if another girl joins our family and they share a room that is what I am going off of.
For my first combo, I went with more blush as the main color with this crib sheet above. I think if I were forced to pick a favorite color, I would have to pick blush. I love the soft feminine look of it, but also love that it doesn't scream PINK like other shades in that family do. So, blush is an easy and safe decision for me! Annnnd, if I had to pick a second favorite color, it would likely be black or white. Don't make fun, I just can't commit to colors ok?!!! Naturally, my blanket choice for this combo is this darling black and white forest number here! I have a little lamb accent pillow for big girl's bed that is mainly black and white. The round puffy trees on the blanket match the style perfectly!
Grey on White
We haven't yet decided on whether or not a second girl would for sure share the bedroom of our first daughter. So, I have to have a girl option that would fit well into our office/nursery situation. That immediately rules out the use of pink because I don't want the room to look too feminine in the color department. For that reason, my second combo choice begins with this grey sheet! I think the design is the perfect amount of feminine for that room.
Now, you might laugh about this next one and think that I am crazy. Oh well! For the accompanying quilt, I pick this beautiful folk birds quilt! Now, now, I hear you thinking "Whoaaa, not sure if those patterns really jive?" I know, I know, buuuut the reverse side of this quilt is white! I don't really want to just buy a plain white quilt because that is
boring. But, for the sake of display, when not in use, I need white to keep the cohesiveness of the room flowing. See where I am going? I buy the folk birds quilt, and use the birds side, but when the blanket is folded and hanging on the side of the crib, I use the white side. Call me crazy...I call it innovative!
