The BG guide to… baby bed linen

Bedlinen Aden & Anais

If you’re spending a small fortune on a statement cot don’t let it down with bobble flannelette sheets and pastel cellular blankets.  These days, children’s bed linen is fun and fabulous. This week, baby sheets and blankets; next week, duvet sets and quilts. When Kitty was in her BedNest I often used an Aden + Anais swaddle as a sheet over the fitted white cotton one for a bit of interest. I was delighted to see the new fitted muslin cot sheets, cool in summer and warm in winter – love the Indian vibe of this Liam the Brave medallions print, £26.

Bedlinen Noe Zoe

For an instant funky fix, it’s hard to beat Noé & Zoé‘s yellow neon stars fitted sheet, €49.95. Mix and mismatch with the striped cobalt blanket.

Bedlinen Quick Brown

Quick Brown Fox of Dulwich is another of our favourite purveyors of bed linen. These Fauna of Great Britain organic cotton sheets are available for BedNest, Stokke Sleepi, cot and cot bed, starting at £20 for a twin pack. 

Bedlinen Twice Giggle Thrice

Who wouldn’t love to wake up to this sunshiny print every morning? Adult-sized duvet covers, please! Organic cotton, about £40 (plus shipping from Australia), Twice Giggle Thrice.

Bedlinen Camilla

This one is particularly extravagant when you take the shipping into account, but it is a Camilla Engelman print and a limited-edition of 1000, and absolutely divine. $50 plus shipping from Australia, Third Drawer Down.

Bedlinen Bloom

Not only do Bloom make rather fine furniture, they have a lovely line in bedding – these Lollipop fitted sheets are £35 each, Huggle.

Bedlinen Club Geluk

I’m definitely a fan of Dutch brand Club Geluk‘s quirky retro vibe and this sheet of green fields is no exception, €22.90.

Bedlinen OlliElla

Cool tones are the order of the day for these Poppet and Pip organic cotton sheets that even come in their own tote bag. £65 for two, OlliElla.

Bedlinen Littlephant

Now for blankets. I think it’s fair to say that Littlephant is one of my all-time favourite labels. Love this chic grey elephant blanket, £39.95, The Modern Baby.

Bedlinen MaxomorraBold, bright and beautiful – what’s not to love about Maxomorra‘s striking prints? £16.90, BeBaBoo.

Bedlinen Jack & Jill

Woodland-themed nursery? This Union Jack & Jill toadstool blanket makes a great owl/fox alternative. £23.50, Not on the High Street.

Bedlinen Ferm Living
So chic, so snuggly – this one’s so good you’ll want to keep it for yourself. Ferm Living Little Remix blanket, £55, The Kid Who.

Bedlinen Pebble

Babies and rainbows just seem to go hand in hand and Pebble‘s crochet blanket looks perfectly cosy – it could well become a toddler’s comforter. £26.99, Baby Calm.

Bedlinen Little Hip Squeaks

If you’re after a little NYC cool, Little Hip Squeaks’ ombre chevrons are definitely the way to go – about £30 in a variety of colourways.

Bedlinen Bobo Choses

And finally, why not get your little one learning their shapes while they sleep? As always, the fabulous Bobo Choses have hit the mark with this fleece-backed abstract blanket, £46.50, Sparkle & Spin.




  1. Great choices ladies. Wish there would be more palatable UK designed baby bedding… Slowly slowly.

    • Thanks, Ursula. I know. It would be nice to see more mainstream high-street brands moving away from character-led and gender-stereotyped pieces, wouldn’t it?
