When decorating a nursery, we love a modern look with a touch of nostalgia and culture which is why we love this Asian antique inspired nursery décor from children’s bedding and accessory company Whistle and Wink. Pretty pink pagodas and lovely antique china dolls dance delightfully on crib sheets, quilts, and elegant canopies. The prints mix modern colors with Asian antique imagery that perfectly mixes the old with the new. To achieve this, Whistle and Wink uses hand-craftsmanship of tufting, quilting, and embroideries to adorn their bedding and accessories as well as their impeccable eye for Asian details.
For example, beautiful black and white China Doll toile print is embroidered with blossoms. The coordinating quilt is made of the same China Doll toile with scattered handcrafted embroideries colored in a delicate garden scene.
What is especially darling is you can get a matching China doll toile canopy to create an even more elegant look. The canopy is made with the same China Doll toile as the bedding with handmade pink tassels dangling from the corners. And, the window valences have cute embroidered nightingales perched on each corner.
For a softer color scheme, take a look at the Pink Pagoda print. The baby bundle of this print comes with a hand tufted bumper with the pink pagoda print on one side and white patches of beautifully crafted embroideries and appliqués on the other.
As we said, Whistle and Wink has an impeccable eye for detail. Their coordinating Pink Pagoda quilt was inspired by traditional Chinese embroideries and is combined with beautifully crafted American stitch samplers. Both the Pink Pagoda and China Doll toile prints come in “baby bundles” (i.e. crib sheet, bumper, and quilt) as well as bedding sets for a girl’s room. We are going ga-ga over the use of traditional handmade sateen Chinese closures, called frog closures, that bring that genuine Asian touch to the on the China Doll duvet cover.
