Nursery Ideas: Going arctic with polar bears and friendsAugust 2nd, 2011 | Posted by in Nursery Ideas
I know, I know. Penguins and polar bears don’t go together. So realistic this crib bedding set isn’t. But it’s so darned cute!
Not to mention rare. There are three billion (I counted) jungle crib beddings sets out there, but this is the one – one! – set I found for the arctic. That just fascinates me because I love polar bears and penguins.
The pattern of this set is actually inspired by the plight of animal mothers and their babies to survive in our changing world. And I just love the soothing color scheme it uses (conveniently shown in that block of colors on the quilt).
This Arctic Babies nursery set is from Cotton Tale Designs and includes includes bumper, fitted sheet, dust ruffle and coverlet. You can also pick up coordinating items like pillows, toy bag, crib mobile, lamp, wall art, valance and rug.
Pair this set up with tons of stuffed plush polar bears, maybe create an ice float in the room to put them on rather than a tree. Polar bear figurines are easy to come by, but I did find a couple of other items that might work with this set.
Check out the line of Oopsy Daisy polar bear art. The background colors of the different pieces seem like they would work with this bedding nicely. And if you don’t mind the penguins mixed in, I found these cute penguin peel & stick wall decals that would pair nicely. Just keep in mind the style of the art on the bedding – it’s not overly cartoony so you want more classic images.
As a final touch, consider these weighted faux leather figurines of a penguin and polar bear. So cool how the polar bear really mimics the polar bear in the bedding! They’re fairly small (the penguin is just under 5″ tall) and meant as paperweights, but they’d work just to decorate a shelf and possibly as bookends with some light books.
