Pink kid's bedroom

When kids reach a certain age, many seem to land on a favorite movie, cartoon, or team. When that happens, their bedrooms can turn into a reenactment of sorts, with toys, dolls, posters, blankets, and even bedding flanked in their chosen obsession. While it's adorable, and we love to inspire play and imagination, sometimes it can feel like a little too much of a good thing. If you're looking to keep your kid's room theme-free (or as close as possible), here are some kids' bedding ideas that will inspire you to get started.
Try dark colors

Yes, kids can get a bit messy, so if you can avoid a pristine white duvet, why not save yourself the cleaning headache? We love this Crate and Barrel dark blue organic reversible cotton blanket.

The color also goes with just about anything, so you could opt for pink or green sheets and then cover it with ivory or light gray pillows to keep it a bit brighter.
