Oscar-Worthy Bedding

Oscar season always gets me thinking about couture fashion (a girl can dream!), so I went on the hunt for my favorite runway-inspired crib bedding. These are the designs that really make us drool; they use fabulous fabrics and elaborate presentations. Maybe not for every nursery, but hey, expecting mommies can dream!

This crib set is appropriately named Royal Palace, and it certainly belongs in one. Designed by Little Bunny Blue, this set retails for $980. Keeping on trend with the love of metallics, this gold and ivory set is elegant and sophisticated.

When Gwyneth Paltrow wore this gorgeous pink gown to the 71st Oscars, she won best dressed hands down in my book. This Lulla Smith crib ensemble reminds me of that flowing pink gown. It’s the perfect shade of pink.

Using strong yet subtle colors, like silver, in simple silhouettes works well in bedding and gowns. Kate Winslet is perfect at the 2010 Oscars in a classic silver YSL gown. My choice to complement this look is this elegant Bellini exclusive crib set I designed. Using opposing fabrics like linen and silk creates a dramatic effect while keeping the set simple and clean, just like Kate.

So excited to see how this year’s Academy Award fashions translate into nursery design—what were your favorites?

    These crib sets are spectacular, but they are NOT safe. The American Academy of Pediatrics specifically recommends that bumpers not be used. The extra puffy ones shown here are even worse; they are a suffocation hazard and a SIDS risk. The city of Chicago has banned there sale and other cities will soon follow suit.

    There are lots of super cute nurseries that do not depend on crib bumpers for decor. Here are some great ideas from my Pinterest Board. http://pinterest.com/ltantawi/everything-but-the-bumpers-nursery-decor/

    I agree with Linda. I absolutely love your nursery designs. If anything you can show new parents how to make a gorgeous safe nursery. Your cribs always look so unsafe. Blankets hanging off, stuffies in the crib, paintings on the wall of the crib. All these thi gs can hurt a child and can lead to suffocation and SIDS. It is recomended by the APA that nothing should be in the crib or hanging close to the crib.

    Suggestion is to use your power and show gorgeous safe nurseries.

    Ladies, I so agree with you that so many of the “beautiful” crib sets are not safe. Traditional bumpers should not be used. With my last child, who is now 3 months old, I put in a beautiful “ventilated” crib bumper offered by Oliver B. This allows for 100% free airflow throughout the crib. It also looks great once attached to the crib. With all the choices out there, I employ you to use either a ventilated system or a breatheable system for your child.

    Love Kate Winslet’s classy style and it’s nice to see it translated into a bedding.

    They are banned in MD too.
