Most moms want to stay away from black or dark colors for the baby nursery. We usually try to stick with a pastel or a neutral nursery theme. However, a classic black and white nursery with pops of color can elevate boring blah into fabulous sophistication!
Can black bedding work in a baby boy’s room? Black and white baby bedding done right can give a chic look to a baby girl nursery, but it might look dark and stark in a boy’s room.
Here are some options for posh baby bedding, luxurious nursery decor and baby room accents and accessories in black and white to convince you to try something different.
Princess Black and White Modern Designer Print 9 Piece Crib Bedding Set
I love the tulle ruffle and the black satin band around the bed skirt. The swirl pattern also keeps this bedding very light with more white showing than black on the baby blanket.
Isabella Black and White 9 Piece Crib Bedding Set
You can never go wrong with damask. It’s classic, very French and sophisticated. The black minky bumper gives this baby bedding set a very luxurious feel and look.
Minky Dot Black 9 Piece Crib Bedding Set
This black minky bedding set may look too black but it makes the perfect base for mixing and matching with other colors like hot pink, light pink or aqua blue.
Hotel White and Black 9 Piece Crib Bedding Set
My favorite bedding set is this hotel crib bedding set. This baby bedding looks classy, chic and very luxurious without breaking the bank. It’s also easy to combine with other colors and has just enough white to keep the room looking fresh and clean.
Lulla Smith Bassinet Baby Chic Dupioni Silk
If you love luxury, you will love this Lulla Smith Bassinet Dupioni SIlk bedding set. It has very elegant fabric, the texture looks refined and it will be the focal point of your nursery. In black and white, you can’t choose a more beautiful look.
Diamond Black 9 Piece Crib Bedding Set
Nursery decor only starts at baby bedding. Once you have chosen your perfect color scheme and theme, it’s time for fun accessories that will make the room.

Gray is such a great neutral color for your baby nursery. It can be combined with white or dark wood furniture, can be added to any color scheme, works with classic or modern nursery decor, and will grow with your child for years to come.
If you are searching for the perfect gender neutral nursery and you’re holding off on finding out if you are having a boy or a girl, you can choose a gray crib bedding set in a neutral pattern and then integrate a color like teal, pink, blue, yellow, or red once your baby arrives. Good gender neutral patterns include: chevron and zig zag, polka dots, stripes, and diamond.
Here are some of our favorite gray baby bedding sets that can completely transform your nursery.

In this digital download world where everything is announced through a status update on social media, I highly value a well designed paper invitation to announce the birth of your baby to your loved ones. There are few occasions that merit having custom designed mail and having a baby is definitely one of them! Leave the freebie downloaded PDF card for less significant holidays like Halloween and announce your child’s birth formally with a beautifully designed birth announcement.
I usually order my announcements and invitations from Tiny Prints. I’ve been a long time customer and can highly recommend them for special occasions. They roll out new designs frequently and there are so many different designs, colors and patterns that your options are unlimited. Every single announcement is printed on thick high quality card stock. Luckily, since they offer so many designs, I have never received the same design that I’ve sent out.

The quality of baby blankets vary from designer to designer and we’ve found that some high priced blankets may be scratchy, hot or made of synthetic materials, while others are soft, plush, well made and look like expensive luxurious blankets. Our absolute favorite baby blanket is the wool & cashmere Hermes baby blanket which is priced at $760 and a celebrity fave. For our new Luxe for Less feature, we searched for luxurious baby blankets that are just as beautiful for much less.

“Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.”
— Willie Dixon
We will be featuring a couple of products each week that we absolutely love for the pampered baby. Some are luxuries and others are necessities but all of them are highly recommended by Luxurious Baby!
BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance
The BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance is a definite must have. If there was one thing I would give each expectant mother, it would be this bouncer. You know how tough it is to put your baby down if you have made them dependent on holding, rocking, or swaying. The Babysitter Balance allows your child to move and rock himself in a safe and comfortable position. It lightly bounces the baby while you need to perform other tasks while staying in close contact with your child. It can be used until your child is 2 years old and makes the perfect lounger for your child.
According to BABYBJÖRN, the Babysitter Balance:
- helps prevent babies from developing sleep problems as a result of becoming dependent on movement to remain sleeping.
- provides good alignment and ample support of the baby’s neck and spine.
- stimulates the vestibular system (the fluid-filled canals in the ear) that allow us to sense motion and deviations in position. This motion, like being rocked by a parent, is very soothing for babies.
- soothed colicky babies as the motion is smoother and less mechanical than battery-operated bouncers.
I love that it has three positions: play, rest and sleep so it’s perfect for any time of day. It’s also machine washable and easy to fold and take with you. There is also a cute BabyBjorn babysitter toy that can be added on to the bouncer so that your baby is entertained while in the bouncer.
Also, I found the fact that this bouncer has no music, vibrations or lights very appealing. The simplicity of this bouncer makes the child more independent and appreciative of his surroundings. It also keeps you sane! How many moms love musical bouncers? After a while, that tune won’t get out of your head! There is nothing like peace and quiet in your home and your baby does not need extra distractions, vibrations, sounds or dependencies while he is relaxing in his bouncer.
A quick search on YouTube or any search engine will show you how amazing this bouncer is and how many fans it has. If you are a mom of a baby or are expecting, the BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance is a definite must have is the best bouncer you can purchase and the fact that you are free to use your arms while your child is entertained and safe, makes this bouncer worth every penny.
I was recently introduced to Tegu at a play date party where one of the moms brought out the set for all the kids to play with. They played for hours and had so much fun! I knew we had to get this set and learn more about Tegu and their blocks. The blocks are safe, non-toxic, and painted with water-based lacquers. They are eco-friendly and made of FSC-certified Honduran hardwoods. They also contain a small magnet to make the blocks stick together but the magnets are not exposed so I don’t see any safety issues. Take a look at the wonderful colors, shapes and block sizes. The set would work for both boys and girls and would make very unique children’s gifts.
TEGU 106-Piece Playroom Package
The 106 piece Playroom Package has a variety of colors and shapes and is perfect for your next group play date, party or for a home with lots of children. Approved for children above the age of 1, this set would be a hit at that next birthday party.
Diaper bags are an essential for Moms and it seems that every mom has her favorite diaper bag brand, style and color. Wanting to be a stylish mommy fashionista, I almost made the mistake of purchasing a Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM Tote to use as a diaper bag because I wanted a designer bag that was big enough and easy to use. I quickly realized that diaper bags have many advantages over non-diaper bags. For example, inner and outer pockets for easy organization, changing pads and they are usually made of quick cleanup material, some of nylon or plastic coated canvas. If you are a fan of the tote diaper bag, let me introduce you to this amazing bag.
PRADA BABY BAG
Celebrity Mommy Fans: Jessica Alba and Kourtney Kardashian
The PRADA BABY BAG is the perfect diaper for Summer 2013 and is very functional for the stylish Mom. Perfect for the designer bag lover and fashionista! I fell in love with this Prada Baby Bag diaper bag when I saw one of my fave gals on YouTube rave about how functional the Prada Baby Bag is. She showed how much it holds and everything that she can carry in it. You can see the video here. The bag has lots of pockets, is roomy enough without being bulky, has a shoulder strap and a soft changing pad. The black nylon is easily washable and the gold details looks lovely and classic to dress up your day wear. Love it for summer!
Luxurious Baby is a blog and resource for Moms and Dads that want the absolute BEST for their baby. We feature new products that are revolutionizing the way we parent our children and that make our lives as parents easier. We want our babies to have the very best and choosing the best is what we are good at.
Luxurious Baby is about the design and functionality of exceptional quality baby products that meet our high standards for babies. We believe that luxury is not measured by price tag and/or brand name.
How did Luxurious Baby get started?
Luxurious Baby was founded by a husband and wife team. As picky parents expecting a baby, we found it difficult and overwhelming to choose the “right” products. When we found out we were expecting, we were given a list of suggested essential baby items that were recommended for new parents, but had no idea what to buy, where to start, which brands were better and what price was considered reasonable and worth paying for a particular product. To choose each and every product that we purchased for our baby, we spent months going through websites, reading reviews, watching YouTube review videos and reading posts from mommy blogs and shopping resources. We understand that not everybody has the time or budget to do extensive research and decided to share our information with you. We hope you would find it useful.
Welcome to Luxurious Baby. We invite you to email us suggestions and comments about your favorite functional, high-end and upscale baby products. Don’t forget to be social and connect with us!
