shopping guide: airplane birds crib bedding giraffe nursery decor
Target is a great place for almost all home items. I can happily get lost in the home section for hours. But honestly, the kid and baby sections are often lacking in good modern decor for the nursery or toddler bedroom. Particularly in store, I have a hard time finding anything that would work for our modern aesthetic in the nursery or toddler room.
With that being said, I was excited to come across several modern crib bedding sets on Target.com recently, all under $140 and most under $100.
Bananafish Poppy crib set ($99.99)
Black and white dots. Need I say more? The bold flowers mixed with the clean look of black and white makes this set a favorite of mine. While I do love the set, the less than modern crib is a turn-off and I would love to see this on my current favorite budget-friendly crib, the Babyletto Hudson.
Room 365 Globetrotter crib set ($69.99)
I have a thing for airplanes. This set is simple yet bold, exactly what I love in a bedding set for a child.
This sweet, yet still very modern, set features soft pink birds and flowers mixed with bold black making this set a stand out for me.
First Trike crib set ($99)
Bicycle, bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle. I love the clean bicycle print in fun color palette of orange, blue and beige.
Bananafish Linden crib set ($99.99)
With three simple patterns, this blue, yellow and grey set is fun and simple.
Room 365 Hot Air Balloon crib set ($79.99)
Hot air balloons plus orange dots plus chevron is a winning combination. This set could be playful and sweet in any nursery.
Bacati Baby and Me Giraffe set ($139.99)
The cute giraffe print plus a bold dot pattern make this a fun modern set.
Most of these sets are not available in store but are available online. Would you design your nursery around one of these crib bedding sets? Which is your favorite?

The Airplane and Clouds Mobile, the Birds on Branches, Bus Car Bike, and Cloud and Rain Drops Mobiles are all $39. There are three other mobiles currently from Trendy Peas– the Deer Fox Bunny, the Flock of Birds and Stacked Owls.
As far as themes and subject matter go, I really love the Airplane and Clouds Mobile and the Bus Car Bike Mobile because there isn’t anything simple and modern to rival them. We’ve got owls and birds and other animals, but these really clean white transportation themed mobiles are something different to keep in mind.
Our toddler room has a subtle travel theme and in the process of putting it all together, I came across a few gems.

Sometimes it’s hard to think past the newborn stage when planning a nursery, but if you simultaneously design a space that works for newborn, infant, toddler, and preschooler, you’re really going to get the most for your money and efforts.
Today’s nursery tour is a great example of a space that can be adapted to suit any age. This incredibly warm modern nursery from Amanda of AJ Cooper is transitioning from nursery to little boy’s room as we speak and as Cooper grows.
If only the Storytime rocker were still available in orange! I love how the orange goes with the warm wood dresser, and that wood side table is a nice study piece in a room with an active little boy. He’s not going to break that thing.
The original design inspiration for the room came from the Caden Lane Blue Twiggy fabric that is part of the crib bedding. As you can see, the wall mural is an adaptation of that design. I love when they go around a corner like that. The crib is the Loom Crib from nurseryworks and it looks incredible in this nursery.

I have a few pictures of this wonderful travel-themed nursery to share with you.
We’ve been talking a little bit about using maps in decor and I love this subtle mural treatment.
This is a great display of their mold-o-rama collection. It’s great to fill your baby’s room with fun things that you love.
The travel-theme is obvious but not overwhelming, with a feature in the room being an ELK Lighting Novelty Prop Plane.
Finally, my favorite part of the room’s decor is the collection of colorful travel posters by David Klein.
I have personally been looking for David Klein’s St. Louis poster for my own home!
