Nursery Blues January 07 2015
There are so many beautiful blues in the world, and yet it was surprising difficult to find a solid collection of modern blue nurseries. Whether you choose cerulean, robin egg, navy, grayish blue, or bright aqua, each hue sets a different tone for your space. When choosing your nursery color, always consider the size of the room, both natural and artificial light sources, and your furniture since those are the most permanent elements. Larger spaces with a lot of natural light will allow for bolder shades, while small spaces may need something lighter to open up the space.
Stylish, Blue Modern Nursery Bedding by Annette Tatum December 16 2010[caption id="attachment_3796" align="alignnone" width="486" caption="Blue & Orange Modern Baby Bedding "Bingo Breeze" by Annette Tatum"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_3797" align="alignnone" width="503" caption="Modern Blue Crib Bedding Patterns by Annette Tatum"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_3799" align="alignnone" width="528" caption="Blue & Orange Wall Decal Mural from weeDECOR"][/caption] Blue. The color of choice for the classic nursery. Perfect for boy's baby room and a delightful accent for a girl’s nursery, blue baby rooms never goes out of style. To ensure that, Annette Tatum’s line of blue baby bedding uses hues that are a touch edgier than what you might find at classics like Pottery Barn Kids or Serena & Lily. She gives blue a fresh look and coordinates with contemporary colors to help you design your stylish and modern blue baby nursery. For example, in her “Bingo Breeze” pattern of blue and orange polka dot bedding, Tatum introduces a tasteful orange that pops against a pale blue, white, and medium blue. We might add that this blue and orange baby bedding is the perfect match for our modern nature wall decal mural when you are ready to think about nursery wall décor. For her other modern nursery color palettes incorporating blue see our collage above. Starting clockwise from upper left find "Bingo Breeze" followed by the “Forest Whisper” pattern. Forest Whisper baby bedding features leaves in light blue and beige with light olive green branches. We love how this color combination mixes several colors, yet maintains a gender neutral feel. If you seek, modern geometric shapes in your blue baby bedding, see Tatum’s “Sprout” in Whisper blue. This palette brings in various modern shades of blue to increase visual complexity. Sprout also comes in Peony for crib bedding with a touch of pink mixed with a dusty blue. The pattern is extra cute as it looks like modern sprouting flowers and vines in a modern, coordinating color palette. These three piece crib bedding sets include a reversible crib bumper with piping, cotton crib sheet and tailored crib skirt with kick pleat. Coordinating items are available in many of these sets include a reversible crib quilt, window panels with pom pom trim, valance with pom pom trim, a changing pad cover, fabric by the yard, boudoir pillow and neckroll pillow. The crib bedding is made from 100% cotton poplin. You can purchase all of these crib bedding sets and get free shipping from Layla Grace.

Up, Up, & Away for a Space Themed Kids Room October 22 2009
Help your little boy or girl blast off to dream land via a ride through space with this astronaut-worthy kids bedroom decor set from Land of Nod. This navy and orange 100% cotton bedding set can help you create an out-of-this-world (literally!) spaced-themed kid's room that is both fun and stylish.
The bedding set comes with a choice of two options. Choose the navy blue quilt that depicts our solar system with the sun, stars, moons, and the eight planets revolving around it. Or, try the star decorated duvet cover in light blue and navy with matching sheets. Don't forget the formerly known planet Pluto with a cute little round throw pillow to puncutate the bed.
Once you have your bedding, there are so many ways to build around it to bring your space-themed room to life - or shall we say extra-terrestial life. For example, seek a pale, smoky blue wall paint to create a space-like aura. If you have floor, chair, or ceiling molding, consider painting it navy to bring visual depth to the room. Consider wall decals, wall stickers or other hanging wall art of rocket ships, stars, and planets. Or, try glow in the dark star stickers on the ceiling so your child can doze off while watching the stars of the galaxy.
