We had such boring bedding for my son when he was an infant. White sheet, white bumper. No frills, nothing special. For my second baby, I wanted something a little fun (plus his bumper and sheets were so grimy and didn’t hold up very well anyway). I came across crib bedding from Picci and fell in love.
We chose the Hippy Balls Bedding Set ($350), from Picci’s Contemporary Collection (pictured to the left). I went with this playful 100% cotton soothing swirly palate of aqua, green, tan and white with chenille accents because it perfectly matched the colors in our Sea and Sky themed nursery. The set contains a fitted sheet, bumpers, dust ruffle and comforter. I liked the fine quality of the bedding (and most likely the bumpers and the comforter will be used as our baby girl gets a little bit older).
From the elegant Cotton Collection, you can choose from 13 different styles. If I was going to go for pink, I’d check out the Hippy Flowers ($350) — a fun modern floral collection of hot pink, pale pink and white, or the Scarlet ($300) — a classic pink with tiny white ruffles or the Taormina ($300) –– a sweet pink and white set with organdie trim. They have several blue and neutral color bedding sets, also. If you want to go really luxe, choose from Picci’s silk collection – absolutely stunning! Choose from Champagne, Caterina, Grace or Aspin.
Founded nearly 40 years ago in Florence, Italy by Paola Cherubini, Picci’s gorgeous collections are handmade in Italy from 100% Egyptian cotton and 100% silk. Picci also uses hypoallergenic padding and non-toxic paints in all bedding and accessory products.
