Yes, we know fantabulous is not a word.  But, fabulous was much too mundane.  As they put it, “the Petunia Pickle Bottom line has shown a fearless sense of style distinguishing itself from the once dreaded diaper bag”.  We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. You may not know that Petunia Pickle Bottom has expanded their “bold lines, daring colors, and darling designer details” to baby bedding.  Now, you can get that same bold style and fabulous fabrics they use in their bags in baby bedding sets. Petunia Pickle Bottom’s exquisite use of silk brocades, hand-woven tweeds, chenilles, velvets, and embroidery will give you a one-of-a-kind, stylish look for your baby’s nursery. We have two favorites within their crib bedding collection.  The first is the Sea Glass Roll aptly named for its stunning shade of turquoise blue accented with Ancient Asian-inspired saffron flower medallion patterns. The set comes with a bumper with box-pleated corners and brocade ties, box-pleated crib skirt, a double-sided velour/linen and Brocade linen blanket, fitted crib sheet, and throw pillow.  Because the color is so powerful, this bedding would look striking in a nursery with white or pale yellow painted walls with turquoise accents.  The beautiful aqua blue shades would pop against those light colored walls.  Consider putting the throw pillow on a light colored glider.  Or, find multi-colored wall art with a touch of turquoise in it to bring a bit more kick to the overall color palette.  Joo Joo Baby has some cute simple wall panels, or go more complex with a vividly colored wall hanging in the kid’s room theme of your choice. Our other favorite is their Zinnia Roll named after the long-stemmed, brightly colored flower. The Zinnia crib bedding set comes with the same elements as the Sea Glass Roll, but is of a chocolate brown / dusty pink color with European-inspired starburst designs.  Delightful for a baby girl’s nursery, decorate the rest of the room in a contrast of colors.  As an idea, paint the walls a dusty pink and accent the room with other chocolate brown and pink decorative items.  Bring in a cream, pale beige, or pale pink for lighter contrast or a darker rose should you prefer darker contrast.  Be careful not to use too much brown on the walls when decorating around either set as it can make the room feel smaller and darker.
