Quilts and Coverlets

No. Generally, quilts are more lightweight than comforters. In addition, they tend to be cottonfilled. Both of these factors make them trap less heat

Blankets are a single layer of fabric (usually knit or woven) that are used as a layer of warmth on a bed or as something to pull up over you on a couch or chair. Quilts are made of three layers – a top and bottom layer of fabric (usually cotton), quilted together with a filler in between those two layers. A quilt can be used like a blanket as a layering piece on a bed or something to cozy up with on your favorite chair. But, it can also be used by itself as an alternative to a comforter or duvet.

Quilts are really one of the oldest forms of bedding. The earliest quilts can be traced back thousands of years. And, yes, they seem to be making a comeback. Whether they are traditionally patched, appliqued and joined like you might see in a vintage or that someone’s grandmother or great-grandmother made, or (like ours) more simple and contemporary in design but stitched and quilted, quilts are the perfect way to add a splash of color or create a layer of texture to your room and a little pizzazz to your home. That is possibly what is driving their resurgence.

Prices vary for both quilts and comforters and depend on a number of factors. The key price drivers are the fabric quality, the fill quality, the work on making them and the shipping costs. Generally, polyester or microfiber is less expensive than cotton. Quilts are generally made of cotton and have a lot of cotton fill. Quilts are heaving stitched/quilted. Although that work is mostly done my machine these days, it is still time-consuming and uses a lot of thread. Comforters, however, are much bulkier than quilts so cost more to transport.

Quilts are wonderfully versatile and timeless. They are lighter than comforters so are perfect for warmer climates or warmer months. In colder months, just add a blanket layer if desired. Because they are lightweight, they are easier to take care of. Our quilts are generally machine washable and do not take nearly as much room in your home washing machine as a comforter. They are also a great way to add a layer of color or texture or a splash of design to your home. So, if when shopping for your next bedding refresh, consider a quilt.

This is really a matter of preference. Some kids prefer lighter coverings, some like to be snuggled up in something lofty. Talk to your child and see what they prefer. Both quilts and comforters come in a variety of fun styles and colors.

Duvets and Comforters

A duvet cover and a comforter are both bedding options often used to keep a person warm, but they have some distinct differences. A comforter is a single item made up of a decorative top fabric, an inner (usually down or polyester) and a bottom fabric all joined together.  A duvet cover is like a large pillowcase that goes over an inner (a comforter or duvet insert). A duvet cover gives you the ability to change out the color or design of the duvet while still leaving your filled inner underneath. A duvet cover helps to protect the inner from wear and tear so it can be kept in pristine condition for longer. Duvet covers are easier to wash and maintain your bedding.

Although a duvet cover is designed to be used with a duvet insert, it turns out that the answer is yes! Duvet covers are designed to perfectly fit standard bedding sizes and have been crafted from ultra-soft materials, making them a cozy and practical way to dress your bed.  It's easier to launder and often more breathable than other coverings, so why not give it a try? Who knows, you might even find that enjoying the briskness of a single duvet layer is the ideal way to drift off into dreamland. Hey, don't judge until you've tried it - you might just love sleeping under your chic duvet

The thought of how to use your duvet cover may seem like a strange puzzle at first, but once you've solved it, you'll never forget how! Start with the duvet unfolded inside out and facing down on the bed. If your duvet cover comes with ties in the corner, loosely tie those to the ends of the duvet insert or comforter.  Then insert your hands inside the duvet cover, grab hold of each of the top corners (making sure you grab the inner as well). Flipping the duvet cover over is the way to go! Don't worry if you have to try it out several times before you perfect your flipping technique - just keep up at it and then shake the duvet until the inner is nestled snugly in its cover.  Button or tie or zip the cover up.  Make sure you place the opening end at the bottom of your bed – you don’t want that part near your face when you sleep!

Picking the right duvet insert for your duvet cover can be a daunting task. You want something that is light enough so you don't overheat during warmer nights and cozy enough to keep you toasty through those cold winter months. Do you want something feather or down, fluffy or thin? With so many options to choose from, it might feel like mission impossible! Just remember, any purchase should reflect your preferences when it comes to both coziness and temperature. Remember though, duvet covers and inners are not standard sizes, so check the size of your duvet cover to make sure you are buying an inner that will fit nicely (and vice versa).

Recently, people seem overly obsessed with thread count believing that the higher the thread count, the better the product.  This is widely regarded as a myth.  The quality of the yarn and the weave have a greater impact on how your product feels and how it will wear and last.  Pick something that feels good to you, everyone has their own preference!

Blankets & Throws

Here’s the scoop! A throw is generally smaller than a regular-sized blanket and made from materials such as fleece or quilted cotton. It usually comes in decorative colors and patterns to add some visual interest - perfect for snuggling up on your sofa! Throw blankets tend to be more affordable than regular blankets, so they make great cozy additions to any room without breaking the bank. Regular blankets are larger than throws and often used as bed covers, over sheets and tucked into the edge of the bed. But don’t forget, throw blankets can also look great when draped over beds too!

When you can't seem to get warm, throw blankets are the perfect answer! Whether you prefer a luxuriously soft fleece throw, one with a quilted look, or something stylish and lightweight made out of cotton, there's a throw blanket for everyone. Pull your throw over your shoulders while watching TV or draped across the foot of your bed to keep your toes warm.  Throws are versatile as well as being stylish and practical.

In an effort to make living spaces more inviting, throw blankets are an increasingly popular decoration. Throws come in a variety of materials and provide warmth, comfort and style without breaking the bank - making them a no-brainer when it comes to accessorizing your sofa! Whether you're looking for just a touch of cozy or a way to liven up your living room, throw blankets are an affordable way to transform any couch into a comfortable escape!

Of course! In fact, having a throw blanket or two is the best way to make your bed cozier and more inviting. With their small size, throw blankets can easily be thrown at the foot of your bed for decorative purposes or snuggled with when you've had a long day. But remember, they are versatile!  So, use them to cozy up your favorite chair or your living room sofa.


A bedspread isn't just a thing thrown carelessly on your bed to cover up a little mess. It's much more than that! A bedspread is an essential accoutrement for a comforting, inviting bedroom. It's the finishing touch that ties the color scheme together and adds personality to your sanctuary. With its quilted texture or plushy pattern, it instantly brings warmth to any room. Depending on what type you choose, your spread can be as simple or as statement-making as you want it to be - so pick one that speaks to you! After all, you spend a lot of time in your bedroom, so why not make sure it looks good?

Bedspreads, comforters, and quilts: three words used to describe your favorite sleep item, but what's the difference between them? Bedspreads usually cover the entire bed, often draping all the way to the floor. They are often decorative and protective, keeping the sheets, blankets, comforters and quilts clean. Comforters are thicker and have more insulation than a bedspread; perfect for cold winter months when you need some extra snuggliness! Quilts provide padding between two thin fabrics that are stitched together with intricate quilting patterns. Each choice offers a unique texture and style.

It all depends on your preference! It is still a practical way to protect from dust and dirt since the quilt or comforter is underneath the bedspread; it adds texture and an extra pop of color to an often overlooked part of your bedroom. Its also a way to add an eye-catching layerto your bed.

Pillow Shams and Euro Shams

When curating your cozy bedroom, one of the most important decisions you'll make is how to put your sham options to best use! If you're trying to decide whether your euro sham should go in front or behind the regular pillows on your bed, it's really all about personal preference - there is no right or wrong answer. Usually we see them behind pillows but feel free to play with your look!

Put simply, a pillow sham is like a dramatic version of an ordinary pillowcase; it’s typically more decorative and comes in various shapes, sizes, styles, and fabrics. Pillow sham options can range from the very simple to the very luxurious - think tufted velvets with unique flanges and fringing. On the other hand, a pillowcase is meant to encase your warm pillow so that it stays tucked in tight while you sleep.

It all depends on your preference! It is still a practical way to protect from dust and dirt since the quilt or comforter is underneath the bedspread; it adds texture and an extra pop of color to an often overlooked part of your bedroom. Its also a way to add an eye-catching layerto your bed.

Decorative Pillows

Decorative pillows can be filled with any number of inners, depending on the look you are going for.  Down or feather pillows tend to less puffy and rigid than polyester fillers.  Think about what look or feel you want and go with that.  Some pillows come filled already, some come unfilled.  Check and see before buying yours!

There is no right or wrong way to arrange your decorative pillows.  The process can be so much fun! The best way to arrange them is to start by finding a pillow that speaks to you, literally or figuratively; place this one as the centerpiece of your cozy pillow scene. From here, experiment and create the pillowscape of your dreams with complementary colors, shapes, textures and sizes. Pro tip: add an unexpected design element for extra flare and charm!

The cost of cleaning your pillows and the price you might pay to replace them should all be a taken into account.  But why ditch something that you love and that could potentially be saved? Follow the wash instructions included with your product.  Some materials may be so badly soiled or too delicate so the benefit of cleaning them do not outweigh the potential risks of damage. If you can, save them, and even if the cover is beyond saving, save the inner, it can always be reused in another pillow cover.

Coastal Bedding

Nothing says Summer more than crisp, coastal bedding! Finding the most breathable bedding can be an easy process if you know what to look for. Generally, sheets, quilts, comforters and duvet covers made of natural fibers, like linen and cotton, are the most breathable. With a few simple steps you can create the perfect beach nook that is breezy and cool even during the hottest summer nights. Cotton and linen are not just breathable, but they ae two materials that are sure to keep their coastal beauty night after night.

When coastal summer breezes come knocking, it can be a challenge to decide what is best to use for bedding: a quilt or a comforter. For some beachy bliss all year round, why not go for both? Start with creating a bed of coastal dreams by adding cotton or linen sheets linen. Then layer up with a lightweight quilt, a perfect weight for Summer nights.  Then top off the look with a comfy and colorful coastal comforter that you can pull up if the nights get cool or to use in the cooler months.

A duvet cover is a wonderful investment because of its versatility.  If, during the hot summer coastal days, your inner feels too heavy and stuffy, instead of struggling to sleep underneath it, try swapping it out for a lighter weight more breathable cotton inner or a thin blanket.  If that still is too warm, who says you have to fill your duvet cover with anything?  The two layers of cotton or linen may be the perfect weight for you.  Try it out!

Farmhouse Bedding

Farmhouse style takes its inspiration from the farmhouses of rural America and embraces modern elements, combining comfort and coziness with a stylish nod to the rustic. Choose bedding pieces like quilts, duvets, or comforters in natural materials like cotton.  Choose from simple and classic stripes and checks or farmhouse florals to make the modern farmhouse magic happen. Remember to bring in decorative elements too - think decorative pillows, throws and blankets. 

While farmhouse style is often built around solid colors and classic styles, try some of these decorating tips to up your farmhouse game:

- if your bedding is really neutral use pops of pattern, texture or color to bring the farmhouse vibe

- mix textures; sometimes the unexpected (like velvet with linen) yields surprisingly wonderful results

- use pillows, throws or blankets to add layers of texture or to bring in a rustic element

The farmhouse look isn't just for farmhouses anymore! With cozy farmhouse bedding and decor, it's interesting to see that farmhouse style has become the all-encompassing look in many homes today. This time it's not limited to residents of farmhouses, everyone wants to relax with a clean modern esthetic that draws on traditional, rustic charm.  A farmhouse duvet, quilt or comforter can add that touch of farmhouse style and comfort you are looking for. So don't let anyone tell you farmhouse is out of style - there's a place for it in your home no matter where you live.

Damask and Medallion Bedding

Damasks are traditional ornate woven fabrics that date back to the 15th century.  Known for their intricate medallion-like patterns, damask is now used to describe a style of patterns that have the traditional damask patterns, whether they are printed or woven. 

For a beautiful traditional bedroom, layer it up with damask and medallion motifs? You can start with the boldness of the pattern and build from there, or anchor your traditional room with a beautiful textured solid and layer with these classic looks. Your color paletter is important. Warmer neutrals with an occasional pop of color will exude comfort while preserving the formality. But, if you want to venture into the bolder, some damask and medallion prints can bring a level of brightness and color to a room. So, if you are going for opulent classic or vibrant fun, damasks and medallions might be a perfect design choice.

Damask and medallion patterns are both instantly recognizable home decor go-tos. But what makes them different? Damask patterns tend to feature symmetrical florals, often drawn from nature with delightful details like small petals or leaves. On a medallion pattern, the images often seem to revolve around a larger focal point, usually a circular design in the center of a quilt, comforter or duvet cover. So if you're looking for something to adorn your home that's both charming and sophisticated, damask and medallion patterned linens may just be the warm welcome you need!

Check and Plaid

Checks and plaids cover a huge range of patterns.  While tartan plaids date back to 3000 BC and have been found in many parts of the world, there is little doubt that this kind of plaid is considered one of Scotland's greatest contributions to fashion. Buffalo checks, often a mainstay in farmhouse style, are characterized by their larger scale and often bolder colors.  While ginghams, which are uniform like buffalo checks, are smaller in scale.  Checkered plaids are usually staggerd patterns and windowpane plaids are uniform, larger plaids that resemble windows (like their names).  Each of these can give your home a different vibe.  There is a lot to choose from and many directions you can go in.  Have fun and explore!

While checks are a sure way to give your home that cozy farmhouse vibe, they can really be used in so many different ways.  Windowpane plaids, for example, are a way to elevate a traditional bedroom and a great alternative to a solid. Tartan plaids can really elevate a classic look, giving your home a clubby, sophisticated feel.

When it comes to plaids, tartans and checks, there's something about their classic look and comfy feel that never goes out of style. But right now, they're having a moment in the home fashion world.  Think of them as an ever-so-slightly rebellious comforter to cozy-up your decor. Whether it be a quilt in gingham or a duvet cover with an oversize windowpane check, the patterns are warmly welcomed into residential spaces all around the world. So why not introduce a bit of unexpected pattern play into your home and join the plaid party?

Christmas Bedding

The holidays are here and you want to spruce up your space with some festive flair – but don't worry, you don't need to break the bank. One of the easiest ways to decorate for Christmas is by picking out a holiday-themed bedding set that can act as the foundation for your room décor. If that seems excessive, opt for some decorative pillows, throws or blankets, and maybe even a pet bed in coordinating colours; this will make your bedroom look beautifully coordinated and festive without costing a lot of money. All these little pieces come together to create an inviting and warm atmosphere – just perfect for Christmas!

When it comes to Christmas decor, it can sometimes be overwhelming when deciding whats the right color scheme to go with. After all, Christmas is a special time of year, and everyone wants their house to feel as festive as possible! Do you find yourself worrying if your red and green Christmas bedding set goes with your wall color or rug? Don't fret too much - think of how amazing a Christmas tree looks in any room.  Adding the Christmas spirit to any environment is never a mistake. But remember, there are always options.  If the traditional Christmas colors like greens and reds feel like a stretch, there are festive options in muted, neutral shades that will bring their own special Christmas joy to your home.

The holidays are done and you invested in Christmas bedding which now needs a home! Storing it properly will ensure that you can use it year after year. First, make sure your bedding has been cleaned and properly dried.  Then, depending on the type of bedding set, decorative pillows, throws, blankets, pet beds and other accessories you may have, think about durable storage containers that seal well or vacuum sealed bags to store them more efficiently until next Christmas rolls around. For an extra special storage solution, consider using stylish boxes or canisters to make sure your throw pillows and blankets remain both protected and chic!

Children's Bedding

Children are, almost by definition, messy.  Expect their bedding to get messy too!  So, whether you choose a quilt, duvet cover or comforter for your kid, make sure you read the wash instructions since it likely will need frequent cleaning.  Most kids bedding should be machine washable. 

There is no right answer, it all depends. Quilts tend to be the lightest weight option for those kids who tend to run warm and don’t want too many coverings at night.  Duvet covers give you the flexibility of picking an inner that suits your child or even to change the inner out from season to season.  Duvet covers can also be removed from the inner and washed and are less bulky than both quilts and comforters.  Comforters are, of course, cuddly and cozy but do tend to be warmer than quilts.

Kid’s beds are often twin size (38” x 75”).  If you want to buy a bed that you can keep as you kid grows into a mature teenager, you might want to consider a twin xl (38”x80”).  If you do have the room, your kid might appreciate a full or double bed or even a queen size bed.  One of these choices might give the room some versatility as your child grows.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of American recommends washing bedding at least once a week in temperature of at least 130 degrees.  Depending on how much mess your kids make, you might want to consider washing even more frequently – and who doesn’t like a clean, freshly made bed?

Toddler Bedding Sets

Toddler bed mattresses and standard crib mattresses are the same size.  Some of the items that worked for your baby, could continue to be used on your toddler bed – like your crib sheets.  But, your kid is bigger now and might want things like a larger blanket, a standard size pillow or a blanket that tucks in around a flat sheet (all items that might have been too big or not safe for a baby’s crib).

A toddler bed is an exciting purchase that marks an important stage in a child’s life! An upgrade from their crib, the transition to a toddler bed gives little ones the freedom to get in and out of bed more easily, creating much less stress for parents come bedtime. With so many interesting choices in beds and bedding, its also a chance to find one that expresses your kid’s unique personality!

Everyone's child is different, so there's no one-size-fits-all answer. Some babies feel secure enough in their cribs until 3+ years old, and for others it may be more appropriate in the 18-24 month range. However, keep an eye out for signs from your toddler that they are ready! They might specifically tell you they want to sleep in a “big kid” bed, or show signs such as jumping out of their crib and climbing over the rail. All these cues can give you an indication that it may be time to start thinking about transitioning them.  Reach out to your pediatrician if you are unsure.

Kid's Pillows

Decorative pillows can be filled with any number of inners, depending on the look you are going for.  Down or feather pillows tend to less puffy than polyester fillers.  Think about what look or feel you want and go with that. Kids’ pillows are often poly filled, it’s a better price performer and a little more forgiving.  Some pillows come filled already, some come unfilled.  Check and see before buying yours!

Pillows are intended for kids who are 2 years and older.  Any pillow, including decorative pillows, should be kept out of cribs or places where kids younger than 2 are sleeping.

Picking the right pillow for your kids room can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating! Get them involved by having pillow discussions with your children. Show them pictures and let them pick their favorites. Its less about shape, size or color than it is about picking something that will bring joy to your toddlers.

Nursery Bedding

Crib bedding sets vary and generally include a variety of essential items to start outfitting your baby nursery.  At Levtex Baby our bedding sets generally include a quilt, fitted sheet, dust ruffle and a wall decal.  Sometime there is a 5th piece in our set which could be a storage basket or a diaper stacker.  The great benefit of buying a bedding set is that it is a cost-effective way to decorate your nursery and start to create a haven for your new baby.  It saves you the trouble of ensuring that all of the pieces work together and create a harmonious balance. 

Just one!  While you might want to add to your collection with additional fitted sheets and blankets, just one bedding set will get you the foundational decorative direction for your nursery.  You might want a second one for grandma's house!

Crib quilts and comforters can serve multiple purposes in a nursery, although they are not typically used in the crib for newborns due to safety guidelines. They can be used, however, in many ways.  1: Decoration - most crib bedding sets come with a quilt or comforter that matches the sheet set, crib skirt and other items in the bedding set. They are often intricately embroidered and appliques pieces designs to be draped over a chair or used as a wallhanging, adding visual appeal and tying together the nursery's color scheme or theme. 2: Play Mat - until your baby is old enough to safely use them in the crib, quilts and comforters can serve as a soft play mat for tummy time or other floor activities. 3: Toddler Transition -once your child is older, typically around the age of one or when they move to a toddler bed, a quilt or comforter can be introduced for warmth.

Every item in a bedding set comes with its own care instructions.  We recommend you review those and follow the instructions to ensure that your product is maintained and last as long as possible.  At Levtex Baby we strive to make our products as easy to maintain as possible.  Most of our items are machine washable.  We always recommend using a baby-friendly detergent, machine wash cold and dry on the lowest setting.

When buying baby girl crib bedding sets, there are a few key factors to consider. Look for sets that are made from high-quality, soft, and breathable materials to ensure your baby's comfort. Consider the theme or design that appeals to you and complements your nursery decor. And definitely make sure your bedding sets are machine washable and easy to care for.  Remember to read and follow safety guidelines, avoiding any loose or excessive fabric that may pose a risk.

Girly themes for baby girl crib bedding sets are endless, allowing you to really express yourself in creating a charming and feminine nursery. Popular themes include unicorns, rainbows, flowers, butterflies and animals. These themes often feature pastel colors, delicate patterns, and whimsical designs that add a touch of enchantment to the nursery.  Have fun creating a haven for your little bundle of joy!

Caring for baby girl crib bedding sets typically involves following the care instructions provided by the manufacturer.  Those are usually found on the insert and also on the sew in label on the product itself.  Levtex Baby bedding sets are machine washable, but it's important to check the specific instructions for each item. We recommend using a mild detergent, gentle cycles, and cold water when washing. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals. Tumble dry on low heat or air dry to preserve the quality of the materials. Additionally, regularly check for any wear and tear, and promptly address any repairs or replacements needed to ensure the bedding sets remain safe and comfortable for your baby.

Levtex Baby's crib bedding sets include 4-5 items.  Each of them comes with care instructions.  It is important to review the care instructions included with the item you purchase.  In general, however, we know how important it is to be able to easily take care of your baby products.  As such, we work hard to try and make every item machine washable and dryable.  For baby, we always recommend using a baby-friendly detergent and gentle washes.   Most of our bedding sets include a wall decal, those (of course) are not washable!

Great question.  Here are 4 easy things to consider when choosing accessories, like drapes, wall art, storage, decorative pillows and rugs.  (1) Color - pick out the key colors in your bedding set and pick items that will be complementary. (2) Theme - stay consistent in your theme, it will help keep your nursery feeling cohesive and not cluttered. (3) Pattern - pick out some patterns in your bedding set and play with incorporating those patterns in rugs, on walls or in decorative pillows.  (4) Balance - consider items that balance each other.  For example, if you have picked a bold bedding set, choose drapes that are a little more subdued and a rug that is more neutral.  Mostly, enjoy the process!

Your baby boy crib bedding set has a number of pieces in it.  The quilt is decorative for baby but could be used for your toddler - it will not tuck around the edges of your mattress but will sit beautifully on the top of the toddler bed.  Of course it will be way too small for a larger bed, but it will still make a great decorative item to drape over a chair or hang on the wall.  The fitted sheet will fit both a crib and a toddler bed.  It does not fit any other size of bed.  If your set includes a dust ruffle or bed skirt, it may be usable on your toddler bed, if the bed takes a dust ruffle or if your crib converts to a toddler bed.  Most toddler beds do not take a bed skirt.  The wall decal, included in many Levtex Baby crib bedding sets, is definitely usable.  

The most common color schemes for gender neutral nurseries are grey, cream, white and taupe - traditionally neutral palettes that lend themselves to a nursery that is not gender-specific. That said, palettes that include colors that are used contemporarilty in home decor -- like yellows and green or sandstone and coral, can also be a fund and less traditional way of approaching a gender neutral nursery.  If you are looking to decorate your nursery around a particular theme, we find that animals - woodland or jungle or zoo - lend themselves best to gender neutral nurseries.

Absolutely! Gender-neutral crib bedding is perfect for both boys and girls. For nursery decor, think natural tones, fun patterns, or cute animal prints. It's all about creativity!

Balance is key. Pick a crib bedding set with a color palette and theme that you love.  Use the colors in the crib bedding set to build around, either in paint on the walls, in a rug, a set of drapes or an upholstered glider.  Build on your theme by incorporating wall decals, plush toys, blankets that complement your theme and color palette.  By sticking to your theme and color scheme, your nursery will look like a stylish, cozy, baby-ready haven in no time!

Crib mattresses may vary slightly but they are all about 28" x 52" and are no more than 6" thick.  Your fitted sheet should fit your crib mattress securely and snugly.  There are many products out there that fit other nursery items, like co-sleepers, mini-cribs, portacribs and bassinets.  There are specific sheets for each of those items.  Make sure you are buying a fitted sheet for the crib (or other nursery item) you own.  Sheets are not interchangeable!  

We recommend changing your baby's fitted crib sheet every week or more frequently if it becomes soiled or dirty. Regularly changing the crib sheet helps maintain cleanliness and ensures a fresh sleeping environment for your baby.  

Of course!  We love the idea of changing out the look of your room by changing the fitted sheet in your baby's crib.  In fact, we design an additional, different fitted sheet that matches each of our crib bedding sets (which come with a fitted sheet included).  Since we know baby fitted sheets get changed frequently, we like the idea of having options to refresh your nursery in an easy way.  If you have chosen a solid colored bedding set, different colors and patterns of sheets really present the opportunity to truly re-imagine your nursery every time you change the sheets. 

We definitely recommend a separate waterproof lining to protect your mattress from leaks and spills.  That is the most versatile option, allowing you to change fitted sheets easily and keeping your mattress protected.

Depending on how often you plan on doing laundry, we would recommend having no fewer than 2 and comfortably 3-4 fitted crib sheets on hand for your baby's crib. This allows for easy rotation between sheet changes or in the case of an emergency, like a spill or an accident. Having multiple sheets ensures that you always have a clean and fresh sheet ready for your baby's comfort and hygiene.

Baby Blankets

Many parents will tell you that you cannot have too many baby blankets.  You may need more of some than of others.  For example, stock up on burp cloths or receiving blankets you are using as burp cloths.  Unless you are planning to do laundry every few hours, you will need a 4-6 of them to have clean ones on hand when you need them.  Similarly, we recommend at least four blankets to be used for swaddling and other purposes so that you can reach for a clean one when you need it.

In general, follow the care instructions provided by the manufacturer. Different fabrics require different care. Pay attention when buying your baby blankets to ensure ease of care.  Most baby blankets are machine washable. We always recommend using a mild and baby-friendly detergent, gentle cycles, and cold or lukewarm water. Definitely avoid harsh chemicals and bleach. Follow care instructions for drying.

Blankets are often overlooked as a way to add an element of design into the nursery.  Drape folded blankets on a rocking chair, fold them in colorful stacks on a changing table or open shelf or hang them on decorative hooks on the wall.  Take time to think about how they coordinate with your nursery bedding, curtains, rugs or paint color.  Blankets are often appliqued or embroidered and may fit beautifully into the theme you have chosen for your nursery.  Blankets can be more than functional, they can add that little touch of something extra to your nursery. 

Nursery Drapes

When choosing drapes, consider factors like light control, ambiance, and theme. For optimal light control, blackout drapes are excellent as they block most external light, perfect for nap times. The feel of your can be influenced by color and material - lighter colors and sheer fabrics create a serene feel, while bolder colors and patterns can energize the room. Don't forget to let your chosen theme guide your choice; whether it's modern and minimalist with solid colors, or vintage and traditional with floral prints, or even a specific theme like jungle or ocean, your drapes should complement and enhance the nursery's overall feel.

Neutral drapes for a nursery provide a versatile and soothing environment. Consider options such as linen drapes for their simplicity and elegance, or sheer drapes to create a soft, serene ambiance. Blackout drapes are an excellent choice for effective light control. For a touch of timeless appeal, consider striped drapes in soft neutral shades, while geometric patterns in similar hues can introduce subtle visual interest without disrupting the tranquil feel of the room. These neutral drape ideas provide flexibility and longevity, making them an ideal choice for any nursery.

Decorating a nursery with drapes involves a few key steps that blend function with aesthetic appeal.

Choose the Right Material: Fabrics like linen or sheers filter light and help with privacy, particularly if your nursery window is visible to neighbors or passers by or even from your own back yard. For greater privacy and to keep your nursery dark during nap time or when the sun rises earlier than you want your baby awake, blackout material can be a wise choice.

Select a Color or Pattern: Depending on your chosen theme or color scheme for the nursery, choose drapes that either complement or provide a pleasing contrast. If you have a neutral palette, you might opt for drapes with a pop of color or a unique pattern to add visual interest.

Layering: Consider using a combination of sheer and blackout or solid drapes. During the day, the sheer drapes can allow soft, diffused light to filter in while still providing some privacy. For nap times and early bedtimes, the blackout drapes can be closed to create a dark, sleep-friendly environment.

Remember, while drapes are an essential component of nursery decor, safety should always be the top priority. Be sure to keep cords from blinds or drapes out of reach to ensure a safe environment for your baby.

We definitely recommend a separate waterproof lining to protect your mattress from leaks and spills.  That is the most versatile option, allowing you to change fitted sheets easily and keeping your mattress protected.

Depending on how often you plan on doing laundry, we would recommend having no fewer than 2 and comfortably 3-4 fitted crib sheets on hand for your baby's crib. This allows for easy rotation between sheet changes or in the case of an emergency, like a spill or an accident. Having multiple sheets ensures that you always have a clean and fresh sheet ready for your baby's comfort and hygiene.

Ocean-themed bedding sets often feature soothing shades of blues and greens to evoke the calming atmosphere of the sea.  You can also create a wonderful beach-inspired look by using more neutral, sandy shades. Patterns that can help create a beachy vibe would include waves, stripes, sea creatures and shells.

Start with the thought that blue is not just for boys!  For a more feminine touch, opt for softer shades of blue and aqua. You can also create a wonderful beachy vibe with a combination of sandy neutrals and corals.  Decorating with solids or textures can also create a versatile base for your nursery.  Use accessories to highlight your ocean theme, like wall decals featuring mermaids, seashells, or underwater scenes, or  accent pillows with ocean-inspired prints and sayings to complete the look.  

To create a calming and relaxing atmosphere in your ocean-themed nursery, choose soft colors and natural materials. Use sheer curtains to allow natural light to filter in gently. Incorporate rugs, wall art and blankets to add texture and evoke a coastal feel.  Add lamps to keep lighting soft and indirect.  A simple sound machine can add the sound of the ocean to add to the feeling of calm and help shut out unwanted noise.

You can really have fun creating an ocean-themed nursery for your baby boy.  From sailboat-shaped bookshelves to anchor-inspired wall hooks, there are so many interesting and unique ways to embrace the beachy theme. Think about hanging decorative oars as wall art or using a sea creature mobile to add a playful touch to your nursery decor.

To incorporate different floral patterns without overwhelming the nursery decor, consider using a mix of scales and intensities. Pair larger, bolder floral patterns with smaller, more delicate ones. Use solid color or textured bedding, simpler rugs, and wall paint to create balance. Limit the number of patterns in a single area and choose complementary colors to create a cohesive and harmonious look.

Popular color schemes for floral-themed nursery decor include soft pastels like blush pink, mint green, lavender and light blue. Neutral color palettes with shades of white, cream, or beige can create a timeless and elegant look. Vibrant and bold color schemes like coral, teal, or mustard yellow can add a playful and modern twist to the floral theme. Consider the desired mood and ambiance when selecting your color scheme.

Flower decor can be used in various creative ways in your nursery. Consider arranging artificial flowers in a safe place or creating a floral wreath to hang on the wall. Dress up a feature wall with a large floral mural or use removable wall decals to create a beautiful garden effect.  Look for flower-shaped wall hooks to hang blankets or towels or storage containers that feature a floral motif.

Common color schemes for jungle safari nursery decor often include earthy greens, browns, and golds to emulate the natural beauty of the wild. Brighter color palettes such as oranges and yellows can also be used to infuse energy and playfulness into the nursery decor. These color schemes can be incorporated through wall paint, furniture, crib bedding, and accessories.

To enhance the jungle safari theme in your nursery, consider incorporating creative storage solutions that blend functionality with aesthetics. Wicker baskets or bamboo bins can provide a rustic touch while also providing a very effective way to organize baby essentials or serve as a laundry hamper. Animal-themed fabric bins or canvas storage containers can add a playful element. Look for storage solutions that fit the nursery's color palette and complement the overall decor.

To create a jungle-inspired accent wall, consider using removable wall decals featuring jungle animals, lush foliage, or safari scenery. These provide a really cost-effective alternative to a painted mural depicting a jungle landscape. We also love a great wallpaper, whether with an animal motif or something more subtle, like a tropical leaf pattern.  Either could make a dramatic impact on your nursery in your whole nursery or even as an accent wall.  We also love the impact of 3-dimensional objects on the wall - think about woven baskets in natural jute, sisal and bamboo.  The natural fibers and tones will elevate your jungle vibe.

Accessories can play a major part in setting the mood in your baby's nursery.  If you have picked a rainbow or unicorn themed nursery, there are so many wonderful options to choose from.  Add some light, gauzy drapes to help filter light and soften the room.  Pick a gorgeous rug that accents your key colors - soft pastels or brighter rainbow shades.  Look for a special decorative pillow to place on your rocker or glider.  Each piece will help create that special ambiance you are looking for.  All of these small elements will help create the special place where you will be creating special memories that will last a lifetime.

At Levtex Baby, we take great care in creating designs that look amazing, are full of texture and dimension but are also easy to take care of.  We know that baby products need to be washed, sometimes frequently!  All of our products are machine washable (we recommend a baby friendly detergent and a gentle wash) and generally can be dried in a dryer (on a low setting).  Properly cared for, our products are built to be enjoyed for many years.

To create a cozy and inviting woodland-themed nursery, start by incorporating earthy tones like soft greens, warm browns, and gentle grays into the color palette. Use nature-inspired wall decals, or murals depicting trees, woodland animals, or forest scenery.  Add soft lighting - lamps create soft, indirect light rather than harsh overhead lights.  Choose crib bedding that incorporate cozy textiles.  Add blankets and a decorative pillow or two to some comfortable seating.  A soft rug or one that incorporates some natural texture (like jute or sisal) that hints at the outdoors will also help set the tone.  For your furniture, pick warm, natural wood tones.  All of these will create the woodland atmosphere you are looking for.

Woodland themed nurseries are incredibly popular and there are so many choices when it comes to decorating.  We think you should start with picking a bedding set.  At Levtex Baby, that will create the foundation for your woodland nursery, not just in theme but in color.  Most of our sets include a wall decal that will result in a woodland-inspired mural on one of your walls.  Round out your room but choosing a matching changing pad cover to help dress your changing table (and provide a soft, washable surface to lay your baby on when changing).  Add a gorgeous, soft rug in muted tones not just for comfort for the time you will spend on your feet but for the softness when you put baby down.  Pick from an array of beautiful blankets that will not only be useful but add some color and interest to the room.  Finally, storage is so important in a baby's room - a good-looking hamper or a pretty basket to store diapers or creams can make all the difference.  But mostly, enjoy the process of adding what works for you in making this space so special.

There is no right answer to this question.  Start with picking your crib bedding set and then choose a color that will complement your choice.  Colors that we find work well in a woodland-themed nursery include earthy greens, warm browns, soft grays, and cream or ivory. 

Solid color or textured bedding can be so versatile and flexible.  You can really embrace the classic vibe and add decorative pillows, blankets, drapes and rugs that are in complementary colors to your bedding but add visual interest with different textures and fabrics. You can also use your solid bedding as a base, and use your accessories to express a theme, like jungle safari, by picking decorative pillows with appliqued animals, animal-print blankets, or jungle-inspired wall decals.  The great news is that, if you want to change it up, simply swapping out some accessories can give you a whole new look.

Choosing solid-colored crib bedding can be an excellent foundation for creating a beautifully designed nursery. Here's how you can use various decor elements to enhance the mood:

Wall art or wall decals can introduce colors, patterns, and themes that complement the solid crib bedding. You could choose artwork that reflects a specific theme, or opt for pieces in colors that you love and want to highlight in the room. Curtains offer an excellent opportunity to add patterns or textures. You could choose a bold pattern or a subtle, textured drape to add depth and interest to the space.  Rugs can anchor the room and add warmth and texture. It could match the crib bedding set or introduce a new color or pattern into the mix. Lighting, that is soft and warm, can create a calming atmosphere, while a unique lamp or light shade can add personality. Think mobiles, decorative pillows (for use outside of the crib), or plush toys. These smaller items can add pops of color and playfulness to the room.

​​​​​​​And, finally, plants. If you want to add a touch of nature, consider some baby-safe plants. They not only add color but can also improve air quality.
