15 Great Baby Bedding Ideas

When planning a nursery the crib bedding is usually the launching point for the whole room’s theme. I love gender neutral options (because it never hurts to share bedding with future siblings) and modern prints that make a room fresh while still being child friendly. Take a tour of some of my favorites for boy, girls and sets that could go either way!


It’s a jungle in here! Well, at least it feels like that some nights 🙂

Love the trees and that it comes in both yellow and rose depending on the colors you wish.


Retro mushrooms and funky colors are totally modern and cool.


Accent with bright colored walls and you’re set thanks to this simple striped set.

Gray and orange and oh so chic.

aden + anais

If aden + anais knew what was good for them they’d launch more crib bedding, but for now they just have sheets and I HIGHLY recommend them. Match with a solid colored crib skirt and you’ve created your own set!


Etsy is a goldmine for custom and pre-made crib sets like this fabulous navy one.


Another Etsy beauty, this bumper-less option incorporates lots of color without the bumper which isn’t always the safest to have attached while baby sleeps.


Love everything about this bright orange, giraffes and alternating pattern.


Transportation theme for a little man – sure to inspire a love of planes, trains and automobiles!

polka dot

Colorful polka dots? Why not?


Chevron is all the rage and a perfect gender neutral choice.

green crib

This soft green print is such a calm, relaxing color – perfect for peaceful naps and nights.

Need some more nursery inspiration? I’ve spent a few too many hours scrolling through these dream nurseries lately! You’ll love them, promise! And remember, the crib is just a short-term component of your baby’s room, so no matter your budget, consider investing in pieces that will grow with your child – a beautiful bookshelf or comfy reading chair. That’s my two cents!
