I give an exception to companies like The Land of Nod, Garnet Hill, Company Store and Pottery Barn, who do a great job of making quality kids' bedding...but folks, as fun as our PB sheets are, don't our kids deserve a thread count over 200? (Can you say "exfoliate?) Cuteness aside, no matter how many times I click through the PB kids site, I just can't swallow the $300 price tag for a Star Wars quilt set that my boy may grow out of in a year.
This month I'm working on putting together a bedroom for a young boy with an adventurous heart. I want to create a comfortable, safe place where he is inspired to explore the depths of his imagination and dream of the places he will one day go. This little boy inherited his parents' love of travel, and at seven years old, there are no boundaries. We've been collecting globes and maps, and pulling together fun found items. I can't wait to get started painting his dressers! Here are some of my inspirations.
We can't paint or paper the walls, but I think we can achieve the same effect with a collection of maps, globes and atlases throughout the room.
I'm thinking ticking stripes. Definitely traditional, transitional bedding that can grow with him...
I love the subway-style dresser listing the places he'll visit...

And I think I've finally found a use for those old ropes I picked up with the hooks on them!
