Nurseries are growing up.
Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Rabbit and pastel shades of pink or blue still have their fans, but many of today’s new parents are outfitting babies’ rooms with sophisticated style.
At one time, getting the nursery ready meant climbing into the attic to retrieve the hand-me-down bassinet, giving an old dresser a fresh coat of paint and dragging out that utilitarian diaper pail.
Today, babies are coming home to nurseries reflecting their homes’ Pottery Barn, Target or Architectural Digest-influenced interiors.
Expectant parents can easily spend hundreds or thousands of dollars for custom or upscale bedding, cribs, dressers, rocking recliners, coordinated soft mobiles, lighting and toy bags that double as flower-filled wall hangings.
Bedding, in fact, can cost more than the crib.
If you look around there is tremendously more baby bedding options available to parents.Â Parents have different styles and personalities.Â Some Parents may want more sophisticated styles, while others may enjoy the more whimsical and playful bedding.Â Â The new offers reflect the fact that not every parent is the same and not every parent wants the same baby bedding style.
