A modern menagerie of playful zoo animals designed by Three Sisters Ink and available at The Land of Nod.
My friend’s daughter has this on her “big girl” bed and it is as adorable in person as it is online. It brightens up her room and brings a huge smile to my face whenever I see it.
This chic bedding is available for big girls too. How fun would it be to get big sister and baby sister matching bedding in this bold print…
Designer Crib Bedding & Designer Bedding for Kids
The selection of bedding available today is out of this world. I just love all of the gorgeous fabrics, prints and colors. If you are lucky enough to be in the process of decorating a nursery – have fun looking at all of these spectacular options.
Little Giraffe Blankets
My son has one of these blankets and I must admit I have snuck it into my own room more than once. They are so so so so soft – I just couldn’t resist. Needless to say, I was thrilled to learn they are making them for grown-ups now too. Lucky me! You can order Little Giraffe online from The Land of Nod and Layla Grayce.
Aden+Anais Dream Blankets
“Four plush layers of muslin in these blankets creates a combination of softness with durability that is as cozy for a toddler as it is for an infant.”
This soft blanket is a wonderful way to add a little extra warmth in any home. The simple color means is will work in any room of the house. Available at The Land of Nod.
Cute Baby Blankets
It is actually good to have a number of extra blankets so you can keep them around the house and in your car too. Many of them are so soft you are going to want to buy one or two for yourself.
“Creating the centerpiece of your nursery, the Century Crib lends a vintage minimalism to the space with modern-day updates.”
“Encourage baby’s curiosity with the eye-catching Ioline crib, recently ranked the top green crib in the world by Time Magazine.”
This beautiful crib is proudly made in the USA by a family of furniture makers who’ve been at it for over 35 years.
If you are looking for clean modern furniture for your baby or toddler’s room – Argington is a great choice. This combo is made from renewable and sustainably harvested solid birch and low VOC birch ply and is available in white as well.
I can’t imagine a baby that wouldn’t love the gentle sway of the hammock. The modern design would look great in my house too!
The perfect piece of furniture for your modern nursery. Nice, simple clean lines. Available at Layla Grayce.
These cribs will add style and function to any nursery.
The furniture collection at Jennifer Delonge is out of this world. I love her use of bold colors and prints, and that perfect combination of modern and vintage vibes.
Muu furniture can be personalized with one of their unique (and adorable!) design panels.
There is no denying the fact that kids love bunk beds. They are also a great way to create a little more room to play.
I recently saw a number of pieces from ecotots and wanted to buy everything – a bed, a table, a few chairs, a coat rack – you name it. The colors were great, the designs were cool, and they were a snap to assemble (no tools!!) On top of that ecotots is a totally eco-friendly company.

Best of all, you can order it online and have it delivered to your door. Take a look at the large range of style options available at these great shops for dressers, bookcases, rockers and more.

Once you’ve filled the nursery with furniture, you’ll certainly want to find some special accessories to add a little personality to your baby’s room.
rondo – 3-D peel & stick wall appliques
“A bold tiger print in punchy pink and white makes a chic design statement. The soft cotton hooked rug adds modern fun and flair to liven up a bedroom, playroom or playroom.”
Rugs for Kids’ Rooms
It broke my heart to see my son crawling around on our cold slate and tile floors. I have never wanted wall-to-wall carpet more than after my son began to crawl. All I could think about was his poor little knees. At least I was able to get a great rug to put in his room to cover the hardwood floors. A rug is also a great accessory and way to add a little color and style to any room. Here are some fun options for your child’s room.
Wonderful Windows at Pottery Barn Kids
Pottery Barn Kids has a wonderful selection of quality window coverings. Their curtains, shades, panels and hardware should add a nice clean finish to any room in your house.
How adorable are these curtains! Even better, they will customize the length to fit in your daughter’s room.
Window Coverings for Kids’ Rooms
Curtains or window coverings will complete the look in any child’s room. Also, with daytime naps, you will certainly want to find a way to create a dark room that is conducive to sleeping.
