I have five friends who are expecting their first or second child (with two who just gave birth). My life is all about baby registries and showers right now.
As I was browsing for gifts recently I started to notice items that I would actually consider for my apartment: a geometric lamp or India-inspired sheets, for example.
One friend was saying what a hard time she had finding bedding that didn't have cartoon characters all over it. She wanted something a little more modern that fit the rest of her home. Here are a few I thought she might like -- there are more collections where these are found so each site's worth a browse.
- Dwell Studio Meadow Powder Blue Play Blanket
- Serena & Lily Chambray Penny Tile Crib Collection and Wayne Pate Whale Pillow
- Oilo Freesia Crib Bedding Collection
- Land of Nod Lightly Striped Baby Blanket
- Beacoup de Fraises Crib Bedding
