We enjoyed the Happy Chic collection at JCPenney and now there’s a Happy Chic collection specifically designed for the nursery at Babies R Us. With four crib sheets grouped into two color options (pink and blue) and accessories to match, you can now get Jonathan Adler style for your whole nursery.
Charlie Elephant Printed Crib Sheet ($20), Quilt ($50), Dust Ruffle ($40), Charlie Baby Blanket ($22), 2-Piece Elephant Wall Art ($28), Text Wall Art ($30), Chain Link Crib Sheet ($20), Charlie Elephant Pillow ($20) and Charlie Lion Pillow ($20)
This is a great way to get Jonathan Adler style for less. Mix a couple of the Happy Chic pieces with your favorite Jonathan Adler Junior accessories for a custom look– whatever is most comfortable for your budget!
The Elephant Needlepoint Throw Pillow features an iconic design in the traditional style of Jonathan Adler Pillows. If it’s out of reach, the Happy Chic Charlie Elephant Pillow has an embroidered ear, eye and heart and might do the job for 1/6 of the price.
It seems that everything Joy Cho touches turns to gold (sometimes literally!). With her graphic design background and through her mega-popular blog, the Oh Joy! brand has just exploded. From early designs like the Hygge & West Petal Pusher wallpaper to her current party collection at Target, it’s been exciting to watch the collaborations she’s developed over the years. Now with the new Oh Joy! for Nod collection, it’s clear to see that there’s just no limit to the goodness we can expect from Joy.
There are two bedding designs– Pattern Party and…
I like that the pieces mix and match easily between the two so there a lot of room to take the patterns and create your own unique look. My least favorite parts of the bedding are the crib quilts, but without them I really love the sheet and skirt combinations. The sets have matching changing pad covers as well as toddler sheet sets and twin versions.
As part of the Oh Joy! for Nod Collection, Joy curated an art collection for the Nod Institute of Art. Mix and match your favorite art pieces for the perfectly lovely and coordinated gallery wall.
In addition to the bedding and art, one of the most amazing parts of the collection are these lamps…
There’s also this giant Dotted Glow Floor Lamp that would add a stylish glow anywhere in your home…
The Pinwheel Rug is a colorful statement,
I love how you can just pick and choose your favorite pieces throughout the collection and you’ll come out with a perfectly decorated whimsical and eclectic space that will be totally blog-worthy. Let me know if you try it!

There are four collections– Alphabets, Galaxy, In Bloom and Tranquil Woods– and all collections have a crib sheet, mini crib sheet, crib skirt, play blanket, stroller blanket, changing pad cover and wall decals.
Alphabets plays with the ABCs and features black and white illustrations with a pop of sky blue.
The Galaxy Collection features robots, rockets and UFOs with purplish blue and gray.
In Bloom features a bold blooms in cotton candy and navy.
Tranquil Woods is a soft gender-neutral woodsy design.
What’s really great about the Babyletto bedding is that every collection is also available for Mini Cribs, like their Grayson Mini Crib, giving even the tiniest nursery spaces the same stylish options.

I’m really happy with the two new nursery bedding collections from DwellStudio. We previewed Treetops and Safari at ABC Kids in the fall, and I’m thrilled to let you know that the wait is over.
These beautifully illustrated patterns are destined to be the focal point of many gorgeous nurseries.
Inspired by hand-woven tapestries, the Safari collection features an entire menagerie of exotic animals. I’m particularly fond of the flamingos!
Hand drawn trees, swallows and a soft color palette make Treetops a simple, elegant girl’s crib collection.
Both collections have coordinating knit blankets, which would make amazing gifts.

I love how all their bedding ranges are now available in a multitude of combinations. The three-piece crib bedding set comes with a yellow sheet and patterned skirt,
Additional pieces like the plain or patterned bumper can be purchased a la carte and there’s a collection of accessories like these star wall graphics that make finishing off the nursery as simple as can be.

Thanks to our friends and advertisers at Olli & Lime for this fun and generous giveaway and good luck to you!
I don’t get to post about super cool kids brand Little Hip Squeaks the way I’d like to since it’s primarily an apparel brand, but with their limited collaboration with Buy Modern Baby favorite, Iviebaby, they’ve got an amazing bedding collection you don’t want to miss.
Anchoring the limited edition collection is the Argon and Tally Pillow cover for $45.
Next, add the Green Apple Argon Crib Sheet for $65.
Then choose your accessories like the Green Apple Argon Boppy Cover ($45), Charcoal Tally Change Pad Cover or Charcoal Scribble Change Pad Cover ($45) and then throw in a signature Everything Blanket like the Charcoal Tally from the LHS Basics Collection.
Either way, you can’t go wrong with Iviebaby + Little Hip Squeaks. Hope they continue to collaborate in the future!
I’m so excited about the new Miller range from Olli & Lime. Now available for pre-order, this modern crib bedding collection is a fresh new option for your nursery. Yellow and gray have been a trend over the past couple years, but this stone shade and rich, golden yellow are a warm version of the popular color combination.
Coordinating products and accessories will be added soon. I can’t wait to see the nurseries that are inspired by the Miller range.
coming soon!: ABCKids changing table crib crib bedding dresser nursery furniture rocking chair seating table and chair set
The MDB Family of brands had a really strong showing at ABC Kids Expo 2013. With brands like Babyletto, Nursery Works (used to be one word- now it seems to be two), and Ubabub under its umbrella, they have a whole range of products for modern nursery furniture lovers across the board.
First from Nursery Works, the Vetro Crib looks better than ever in this gray Shadow Acrylic color. While the completely clear one disappears a little too much, the Shadow Vetro is a dark crib with a nice level of transparency.
Nursery Works also showed off it’s Empire Rocker in this crazy custom camouflage fabric. It’s a great reminder that any of their rockers can still be ordered with your custom fabric choices, but most importantly, notice that this isn’t actually a rocker! You will be able to order replacement legs to change your rocker into a stationary chair. This is a great way to extend the life of your furniture! I believe the replacement legs will be about $200.
It’s always a pleasure to see the Ubabub pieces in person, but they also debuted the prototype of the Pod Dresser. Designed to coordinate with the incredible Pod Cot, I hope to see a version of this available before too long!
Babyletto is entering the world of toddler furniture in a big way next year. With THREE new table and chair sets, they’re covering a range of modern styles. I can’t decide which I like best.
No, I lied. This Lemonade Playset is my favorite!
And it’s not just table and chair sets from Babyletto. Their Skip toddler bed is really sweet.
I’m not sure how I feel about Babyletto’s new rocking chair. Thoughts?
But I KNOW I love the Lolly Collection.
Finally, Babyletto is entering the textile business and I’m super impressed with the results. Designed in-house, the top two designs on each side will be released first with the bottom patterns coming out further in the future. You can also look for Pure Core and Coco Core non-toxic mattresses from Babyletto in 2014. These will come in regular and mini crib sizes.
Last but not least, DaVinci’s ever-popular Jenny Lind crib will soon be available in this sunny yellow color.
Congratulations to the MDB Family on a great show. To celebrate, they’re offering you 10% off any purchase on Babyletto.com from now through November 15th. Unfortunately that won’t cover any of the new things here, but they do already have a great collection.
Oilo shared lots of new and exciting developments at the 2013 ABC Kids Expo. Everyone I talked to was excited to see three new bedding collections on display, but that was just the beginning!
The biggest news at Oilo for 2014 is that all their crib bedding will be sold a la carte. The bumpers will retail for $180, crib sheets for $36 (striped) or $39 (patterned) and crib skirts for $118 (patterned) or $99 (solid).
The first new collections I want to show you is Zara. I love Zara because it’s not quite a chevron but more of an updated zig-zag pattern. You can’t go wrong with this bold gray set.
The Link motif in Stone is another new design at Oilo, and it’s paired with a solid crib skirt. Link is offered on the sheet and a few other decorative accessories.
I’m also really excited about the new Bloom motif. This is available as a patterned sheet with a solid skirt and there are a few additional Bloom accessories as well as other options in the Petal Pink colors.
Brick and mortar retailers will also be offering Oilo’s Pure collection. With pure white bumpers and skirts, the Pure collection can be mixed in with any of the other Oilo collections. The pieces can also be enhanced with ties, piping and banding in any of Oilo’s signature colors.
Since more people are choosing crib bedding without bumpers, Oilo has reworked some of their previous popular patterns and updated them to suit this increasing trend. Here you can see Modern Berries with a larger pattern on the sheet…
… and here you can see Cobblestone‘s updated look.
Oilo is also adding two gorgeous gliders to its furniture collection. The Bellingham and Nola gliders will be available in 2014 and retail for about $1400.
Oilo’s new hassocks (shown above) can be ordered in all of Oilo’s fabrics and will retail for about $100. Use these as an ottoman or beanbag chair and add a pop of your favorite Oilo design.
I think Oilo has a great concept going on with all the mix and match options that it has been developing. You can really create a sophisticated and unique custom look that works perfectly for you. If they just had drapery, you’d have all your fabric needs covered.
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?
