Picci uses soft, tonal colors and integrates clean, modern design elements to create their signature nursery look. Founded 35 years ago in Florence, Italy by Paola Cherubini, Picci categorizes its crib bedding as cotton, silk, organic, and contemporary.  We especially like their contemporary designs because they feel so…well, Italian.  Cool, modern patterns softened with nursery color palettes bring together the traditional with the modern as the company succeeds in their attempts to “evoke the romance of Tuscany in style and design”. Their green and white “Peter” set is stunning.  Featuring contemporary green daisies and a solid brown for the bumper ties, crib bumper, and quilt edging, this is a nice bedding set for a gender neutral or neutral colored nursery.  The Peter set would match a white or light oak-colored crib.  A light colored wood would do wonders in bringing out the neutral tones of the brown and green. For a girl’s room, this “Hippy Flowers” floral crib bedding is oh-so-cute.  Daisy designs dance across soft pale pink cotton with coordinating pieces in pink toned stripes and solids.  This would match a dark brown crib as shown here for a more classic look.  Or, go with a white crib to give a more airy feel to your baby girl’s nursery. Our favorite is this dusty blue and beige bedding called “Blue Ocean” which lends a spin on a modern polka dot nursery with soft, playful blue circles embellishing the pale beige fabric. This baby bedding would work with any colored baby furniture and we love the idea of using a blue painted accent wall to help the bedding pop as shown here.  To recreate this look, try Land of Nod's She Sells Sea Shells no VOC blue wall paint which looks to be a close match.  Each baby bedding set comes with crib bumper, comforter, sheet, and dust ruffle and is made of all natural fabrics.
