Kizzi writes: We're moving into our first house and leaving behind the Blik covered nursery we created for our now 7 month old son Dex. We want to redo his room around this Speed Racer sign he's obsessed with but I am having trouble finding crib bedding that fits the not-so-babyish color and/or retro style. Any tips?

Hi Kizzi. It sounds like you have the right idea to indulge his love of this sign without necessarily creating a Speed Racer themed room. Kids' tastes are fickle so he may get fixated on something else soon and then you'd be stuck with an homage to a cartoon.

We would suggest first going with the stand-out colors of the sign - blue and red - and then looking for patterns that evoked that retro feel. Below are a few ideas we think could work.

American Rockets ($31 - clearance - act fast).
Loops ($340)

Hey readers, do you have some suggestions for Kizzi?
