Spring and summer bedding you can’t resist

Perhaps it’s just me but every time the season changes, I have a need to change all the bedding in the house with it. For winter it’s cozy flannel sheets that most likely correspond with some sort of holiday or winter theme. In the fall, we change from the bright, cheery colors to more muted colors to match the changing leaves. By far my favorite bedding change is when spring and summer rolls around and it’s bright colors and flowers or simple and crisp nautical stripes. There’s something about crisp sheets that just make you want to curl up in your baby’s crib or perhaps spend the night snuggling in your kid’s twin bed with them (after all they DO ask, right?).

Oh, and the best part about new bedding is you don’t have to change the entire room decor to make it work. You’ll always be able to find something that will fit right in and will look just as cozy as it did before. Here’s a look at some my favorites this season for both boys and girls that will give their room an instant seasonal facelift!

Pottery Barn Kids is known for their classic seasonal styles and this year, is no different. I love the unexpected bright punch of red color the new Harlington Nursery Bedding offers. In fact the red is so unusual for a nursery color bedding set that you can definitely use this for fall babies too. For boys, check out the new Island Surf Collection. It is reminiscent of being in Hawaii…even when you can’t be!

Restoration Hardware’s new baby & child collection delivers some great classic prints this spring that don’t fall in the category of too cutesy. Some kids and parents aren’t into having Curious George or Dr. Suess floating around on their bedding. No problem — Restoration’s classic European styles will please those with picky design palates. If my husband would let me, I would probably put these Vintage Airplane Blueprint sheets and duvet on our bed. What budding architect or pilot could resist these? For girls, watch them swoon over this European Cherry Blossom bedding — it’s divine.

If you’re a bedding fan like me, then surely you know of Serena & Lily. You can’t NOT fall in love with their simple, classic bedding designs for baby, kids or yourself. Since the bedding tends to run more on the expensive side (on average about $395 for the three-piece crib set), go with a gender-neutral design that can be passed down from sibling to sibling so you really feel like you get your money’s worth. I love the new Leo collection that is a gender-neutral cool blue with horses and camels in a cool geometric ceramic pattern that make you feel like you’re on a traveling magic carpet right in the comfort of your own home.

too bad the vintage airplanes dont come in king size (I always go one size up for my comforters/duvet covers). My husband would love it and it’s not an obnoxious airplane print so I could acutally be ok with it!

I myself LOVE bedding! I never can have too many extra sheets and comforters in my house. Everytime I am in a department store I have to visit the bedding department to get new ideas. I always change the look of the kid’s bedding as the seasons change. I am so excited that spring is here so that I can incorporate some brighter colors in their bedrooms! My way of doing it budget friendly is buying bedding that is reversible and that has more than one pattern. This way I can mix it up easier and most importantly on a… Read more »
