Bedding for Baby

I have stayed awake at night worrying about the bedding we will select for the baby's nursery. I know that may sound silly to some, but I just want it to be beautiful for him or her. We have an older, historic home, so I wanted to remain rather true to the rest of the house and not go too outlandish or contemporary with the nursery. It seems that nearly all the bedding sets these days are contemporary! I had a difficult time finding something that would coordinate with the rest of the house and not seem "out of place."

I wandered upon this bedding set tonight, and I rather like it. We need to stay neutral since we don't know if we will be adopting a boy or a girl. I am wondering if this will work - is it too girly? The fabrics seem a little "grown up," but I think paired with the right artwork (I have samples of that, too, that I found online) and accessories, it may work. The color of our furniture in that room will be a dark oak, so the colors may blend nicely. What do you think?

Congratulations on your upcoming arrival! How wonderful! The bedding set is absolutely beautiful! It is a bit on the feminine side but the baby will not mind I'm sure:)

That bedding set is BEAUTIFUL! I love the colors, and I definitely think it is suitable for both a boy and a girl. The colors have that lovely "primitive" look which I just love. =) How exciting!!!
