Peter Rabbit Nursery

All my Winnie the Pooh baby shower ideas and nostalgia led to the collection of these sweet items for a Peter Rabbit themed nursery.  Compared to Pooh, Tigger and crew, Peter and his family were far less lively.  Yes, Peter was constantly getting his mischievous self into trouble and barely slipping out of the Gardner's clutches, but Beatrix Potter painted a soft and serene rabbit world - a world that seems ideally suited for a nursery.  These pieces share a vintage vibe and common color palette of sky blue, wheat and white.  And what could be more cuddly than a cute, little rabbit?  By the way, I actually found a book entitled Create Your Own Peter Rabbit Nursery...which is comically specific, but highly rated by the 2 people who reviewed it on

Pottery Barn Kids makes Peter Rabbit bedding (below) and a valance, nightlight and stroller blanket.

Kendall and Michelle - Thanks. I totally agree that it's a little more understated and gender neutral, both wins in my book.
