Inspiration to Crib

Inspiration can come from so many places, and in so many ways- it can be a mood, a color, a feeling, a texture, an item. I always have my eyes peeled (and my camera ready) for something to strike me.

The below two images were the jumping off points for our new Clothes Make the Crib- Boy’s Bedding Set. I loved the contrast colors and somewhat grayed out hues of the below kitchen.    It is an updated- more modern color palette and something different than the go to of navy or light green for Nursery.



This reference is something I’ve kept around for a long time. I love the mix of multiple patterns. To me- it just reads BOY. The combination of plaids, gingham, stripes and solids used in the set where derived from this idea of pattern play.

Though there are a lot of patterns in this set- it has been designed to mix and match to suit your taste and style. A gingham fitted sheet and plaid bumper is too much for you? Try a light blue striped fitted sheet or a solid. You can mix in several different styles of rug and room décor options to give this set a funky modern or truly traditional spin.

I also love that we went a bit untraditional with the knitted blanket instead of a quilt. Throw it over a rocker, use it when your snuggling, this blanket adds texture to the set and is very user friendly!

Once upon a time a fashion plate from Seattle met a childrens retailer from Chicago, and it was love at first sight.  After spending a lot of time together at the mall, they both knew it was a perfect match. So Sarah packed up her fabulous Kate Spade suitcase and headed for the Windy City. Where they lived happily ever after, designing and developing textiles for little kiddos everywhere.

    Gorgeous crib! Love the beautiful colour combination. It is a surprise for me that those colours could go so well together.
