Before I show you my choices, let me explain my thought process so you can understand and use my rules.
Like I told you back in my crib post, I never had a kids room. Therefore, I am insistent on my kids having rooms that actually reflect that they are children. Let me tell you... this is much easier to do with boys than with girls! The following are my opinions for my babies room. Please don't get offended if I don't like what you did with your kids. That's why they make 500 choices--because we all are different! :)
- Characters are out. Even though they are "kid" friendly, I cannot bring myself to do a Winnie the Pooh room. Sorry.
- While the fru fru silk, satin and velvet bedding is beautiful, it is not for me (us). First, we are not raising a princess--and yes, I believe princesses are made, not born. Second, I am not that fru fru. My wedding wasn't even that fru fru, so my girl's room isn't going to have chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. (Again, gorgeous, but not us.)
- While I really do love all the modern prints, geometric shapes, and toile, it doesn't scream "baby" to me. I really do like a lot of the selection, but some of it is too plain or boring.
Well, anyway, I love this bedding
Here are my reservations:
It cannot be found in stores. In some pictures it looks really pale pink and in others it looks pretty pink. I have no way of knowing what I am getting. Also, it really is just a four piece set. Other than that, you can buy a blanket (no thanks) or a valance. The mobile is out of stock at every site I've looked at. (Before you tell me that I don't need a mobile--Michael has asked 4 times if I am registering for a mobile. So YES, I do need a mobile!) I LOVE cherry blossoms and little birdies. I'm just not sure. I would like the option of a rug or a lamp or something! Thoughts?
I also like this
It can be purchased in a store and has a lamp and wall art that goes along with it. Plus, it's a six piece set instead of 4 (comes with valance and diaper stacker). The crib we have is dark wood though. Will it still look alright?
Which would you choose?
