Bedding, Giveaways

Giveaway: Annette Tatum Shares Her Style + Crib Bedding Giveaway!

Over the past year, we’ve gotten to know Annette Tatum through her incredibly thoughtful posts here on Project Nursery. As a successful designer and a mother of four, she gets it. She lives a self described “layered life” where her taste has evolved from single and bold, to play-doh and practical, to baby free and fashionable.  We love this about Annette. So this time we thought we would ask her a few questions about her evolving sense of style and expanding brand. And while we were at it, she’s offered a Little House crib set of choice to one very lucky PN reader!

How has your style evolved in the New Year?

I am definitely moving towards a more eclectic and sophisticated palette in my own style choices. As I move out of the “infant” stage of my children’s lives, I find that we are all growing up. I am drawn more and more towards cleaner lines, simpler shapes, and more classic color palettes.

I still like my pinks and turquoises with gold and silver hits, and I will always maintain that pink is the perfect neutral. But now I find that I’m more inspired by fashion icons than by passing trends. I want my style choices to stand the test of time.

What current trends are you crazy about these days?

With that said, I still love following fashion and keeping up-to-date with the latest runway trends. I can’t get enough of these new colors making their way into home décor. Teal, persimmon and other great hues are not just for the bold and daring. Home trends are becoming more adventurous, and that’s inspiring. It’s a break from tradition, and allows for new creative styles to emerge.

If you were to do it all over again, which crib bedding set would you now choose for your baby?

That is a hard one, but I have always loved floral garden prints. You can see them in the earliest archives of my collections. When I initially introduced them years ago in my first line of bedding, I presented it in a different color context, and it was well received. So out of nostalgia, I would probably choose one of those floral garden prints if I was decorating for a girl. For a boy, I would go with Flying Pups Blue, another earlier print that was successful for us.

Can you give AT fans like ourselves a peek of what’s in store for 2011?

A sneak peek… this April we will be launching eight new crib sets, all with a Bohemian flair. I love the radiant colors of orange, lavender and teal, and their vibrancy really inspired this new collection. I’m thinking that this is the year to travel to new and exotic lands, and hoping that 2011 brings out the “bohemian” in me!

    I love the Floral Garden Sea- so fresh to use blues in a girl’s room (I say that after painting my daughter’s room 2 shocking shades of pink, but I digress…). The Fleur Turquoise is a close runner-up.

    It’s SO hard to pick just one favorite, but if I had to pick only one, I would pick “Fleur” in Sea.

  72. 73

    I’m pregnant and I don’t know what I’m having but I really liked the Honeycomb Pink.

  73. 74

    Oh my gosh! floral garden pink, blossom pink, pinwheel pink!! I can’t choose…but pick me so I CAN choose!! :D Thanks for the chance!

    I love love love pinwheel blue! I wanted to do my nursery in those colors with a set called Benjamin, but it was way out of what we could afford. And I really wanted some orange, but not to be the main color. But this is even cuter than the other I wanted, I would absolutely be floored if I won this :D

  76. 77

    We are expecting a baby boy in May and I decided on blue and orange for the nursery. I have been obsessed with planning it and check out project nursery almost daily! I just subscribed to the newsletter. I have been pining over the Annette Tatum pinwheel blue bedding, it would be so perfect. I was so excited to see this contest and would love to win her amazing bedding!

  77. 78

    My husband and I recently found out we’re expecting a boy! I am enchanted with the boy bedding that has the “blue pups” bumper. I would really love to have it in my nursery!

    Following Annette and Project Nursery on both sites was an EASY assignment! I LOVE the Petite Dot and can’t wait to see the Bohemian line in April! My baby girl is due in June so I’ll be holding out to see that line before making my final decision for her inspired nursery! I’m also moving my little boy (who will be 18 mo’s when baby girl arrives) into his “big boy” room and love the Honeycombe set for him! Thanks for bringing us a break from the same ‘ole girl/boy nursery/kid room ideas!

    I love Annette Tatum bedding!!! I’ve been searching for a “purple” bedding set for my new baby, and I haven’t found many at all that I like. Then, I finally found the Annette Tatum line and fell in LOVE with the Brocade Orchid 3-piece Crib Bedding Set! This would go perfectly in my baby’s nursery! It is beautiful and just what I’ve been searching for!
    Also, becoming a fan on FB! :)

    How can I just pick one!? They are all so amazing.

    I think Fleur Turq or Pinwheel Blue are the two that stood out most in my mind.

  170. 171

    I really love the Fleur Turq. I love the unique combination of the more traditional blue color with a fun modern green.

  171. 172
  172. 173

    I like Annette’s “Flying Pups Yellow”! I like it because it is gender neutral! I hope I win this giveaway! I am hoping to become a foster mom and could really put this bedding to use! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

    These designs are so darling! We’re expecting our second child this summer, and it would be nice to win this to change-up all the hand-me-down stuff this baby will be getting. I’d pick the Floral Breeze or Bandana Breeze for a girl and the Circus Blue if it’s a boy.
