Who ever thought that they would see the day when modern baby bedding sets in black were considered to be trendy and hip for a baby's nursery? Perhaps in the days of high infant mortality rates, black was a little dark and dreary for a baby's room. Maybe that is the thinking behind decades of the use of light, airy pastels rather than deep, rich colors.
Black and white baby bedding can be so very elegant in a baby girl nursery especially when paired with a ruffled crib skirt with so many ruffles and frills it could double as a tutu in a pinch.
There are many patterns in modern baby bedding that have just enough black in the mix to balance out baby blue for baby boys, powder pink modern baby bedding for baby girl's themes and to show dramatic shades of red off to full advantage. And then there is solid black baby bedding which gives us the freedom to go wild with color elsewhere in the baby's room.
Black squares, circles and spirals really pop against backgrounds of light colors without making the room seem dull or drab. To the contrary, the contrasts are lively and make the room feel active and quivering with a vivacious, enthusiastic attitude that is perfect for a rough and tumble baby boy's nursery.
For baby girls, the Eiffel tower looks new again when combined with pictures of sassy and white French poodles being led about the big city on a leash by fashionably dressed ladies.
And of course there are the true nursery decorating mavericks who want black and white crib bedding sets to flesh out their goth decor.
The news is that there are touches of black in many modern baby bedding collections that will still have lots of cute, classic baby motifs as well as cutting edge, urban looks. Don't settle for boring nursery bedding sets and classic baby color schemes when you can have chic baby bedding in black for your baby's crib.
