I'm always on the hunt for new bedding styles and designs for my customers and I often get asked what bedding works with my sports wall art lines. So here are my picks for new and tried and true pieces from my favorite haunts. I rarely use themed bedding with sports graphics on it, for me it's usually too expected and often tacky. In contrast I applaud my friends over at Land of Nod have done a great job of offering up some very simple understated pieces, I've included below. The top picks include bedding from Restoration Hardware Teen, PBteen, Ralph Lauren via Nieman Marcus, Rejuvenation Hardware and Schoolhouse Electric.
Having worked with several large retailers on the development and coordination
of their art and bedding lines, I know what it takes behind the scenes to get the company buyers to sign off on new looks. It's hard. There is always a tendency to go with what's safe, a sure bet. Although I understand that conservative approach, it is refreshing when something out of the ordinary breaks through. If you have found something wonderful in the bedding world, send me a link. I'd love to see what makes your heart sing! - Aaron
