Nursery Bedding Themes

Animals

Consider the large array of animal-themed bedding at your local baby supply store. Choose a specific creature -- a dog or a butterfly, for instance -- or a genre, such as underwater species, Arctic animals or jungle safari. Animal themes are available in unisex and gender-specific color schemes.

Characters

Let a favorite cartoon character guide your choice of bedding. Peter Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh and Curious George are a few popular options. If you cannot find the character you seek, make your own bedding with a pattern and fabric available at most craft stores.

Colors and Shapes

If a neutral theme is more your style, choose a specific color or color palette or consider starting with a shape such as polka dots or stars. Once you've chosen a hue or a shape, look for bedding in that color or featuring that pattern. This gives you more freedom to decorate the room because you are not limited by the bedding theme.

Transportation

Transportation inspires a popular theme for a baby boy's room. Look for bedding featuring cars, trucks, planes or trains. You can find bedding with transportation and animals or characters as a theme. For example, consider bedding with trains full of circus animals.

Sports

If you or your spouse is a sports fan, choose bedding that shows your team loyalty. Bedding emblazoned with professional sports logos is easy to find. Bedding with a sports equipment theme -- balls, bats or playing fields -- is also popular. If you cannot find your team or sport in bedding you like, use solid-colored bedding and add sports-themed blankets to the crib.
