This post might be a little premature considering we don't even know if we are having a boy or girl yet. But I keep looking at boy stuff because it's where I'm the most indecisive. If it's a girl I'm fairly certain I know what I will do for her room. Anyways, while in Potterybarn Kids, the other day, looking at the cribs, Hunter pointed out his adoration for this Whale quilt. Then, I showed him this elephant quilt I had my eyes on. He agreed the elephants were cute but stood his ground in liking the whales better.
Now, I should point out that I know I don't want a nursery full of animals so the quilt (and maybe sheet) will be the only piece we will purchase with animals on it. I thought of doing a striped, solid or polka dotted bumper, sheet and crib skirt along with the animal printed quilt.
Now here comes the fun part...
Did you know on Potterybarn Kids website you can build your own crib? Well you can, right here!
You pick out your crib, then add your quilt, bumper, sheet and crib skirt. You can mix and match every pattern they have and it adds it to your crib where you can see what it will look like together. You can even change the wall color. Genius and EXACTLY what I was looking for!
Here's some different combinations I put together with the quilts we like. The white crib in the pictures is the exact crib, boy or girl, my generous parents are purchasing for us!
Sorry for the blurry images...I couldn't' copy them from the website any clearer.
All of the images have the light blue pique crib skirt and bumper which I think I'm sold on.
1. Whale quilt, navy blue polka dot sheet.
2. Whale quilt, whale sheet.
3. Whale quilt, blue gingham sheet.
4. Elephant Quilt, blue gingham sheet.
5. Elephant quilt, elephant sheet.
Now, I'm aware I can rotate the sheets and use all the different patterns. But, I ask you...my friends....Elephants? or Whales?
Here's clearer pictures of the two.
