One Grace Place Review and Bedding Set Giveaway CLOSED

Posted By: Leah
Open to Lovely Life of Leah readers only. This is not a group giveaway. This giveaway is for the winner's choice of ANY Infant or Youth bedding set on One Grace Place. The value of the winner's bedding set will be $177.99 - $499.99 depending on the winner's choice of bedding. 


This post started out as a review and giveaway post, but there's a lot more to it. So often I see other blogs with moms and moms-to-be showing off their Pinterest-worthy nurseries and kid rooms. Their pretty painted walls, cute vinyl quotes.... things I wish I had, but just don't have the time, energy or resources to do.

To be honest, my child's bedding is pretty low on my list of the things that we need. Let me reword that, Gav has more than enough of everything. He has a very nice bed. His pillow-top mattress is actually way more comfortable than mine. Let's face it, Gav is 6. I didn't think he cared what his bedding looked like. (**Mom tip, invest in a good mattress for your child. They deserve comfort and a good night's sleep too!)

When One Grace Place contacted me to do a review and giveaway of an entire bedding set, it was very unexpected. Like I said, I see kid's decorated bedrooms in other people's blog posts and on Pinterest all the time, but it's something that is not  a priority in my life to purchase.

I am very fortunate and grateful for this opportunity for a new bedding review. Gav LOVES his new sheets and comforter and happily goes to sleep in his own bed at night. I know that those who enter the giveaway for a complete bedding set from One Grace Place will be as excited for the opportunity for new bedding for their child as I was.

Gav and I reviewed One Grace Place's Teyo Tire's 6 Piece Bedding Set.
Gav had a single bed, so he received the 6 piece set, however the full bed set would come with 8 pieces for the extra pillow and sham.

Live in the fast lane with "Teyo's Tires"!  Ready, set and go into a room full of action in every way!  Brave black racing through streets of grey and orange create all sorts of traffic throughout this enticing collection! This 6 pc set includes twin comforter, twin flat sheet, twin fitted sheet, 1 standard pillowcase, twin bed skirt, 1 standard flanged pillow sham.  Teyo's Tires twin comforter is reversible so depending on your style you can add a lot of detail or a little.  Comforter comes in our designer "Sheet Metal" cotton print fabric framed with our signature orange minky fabric.  Opposite side in "Checkered Flag" cotton print fabric also framed in our vibrant orange minky fabric.    Flat and fitted sheets come in "Tons of Tires" cotton print fabric.    Bed skirt races onward with this collections "Tire Tracks" cotton print fabric.  Standard pillowcase come in "Checkered Flags" cotton print fabric and trim in brave black solid cotton fabric.  Standard flanged sham it outrageous in appearance with it's "Sheet Metal" fabric with flange trim of orange minky fabric.

Let's rewind for a moment. Back when I was pregnant with Gav, I spent hours online selecting the perfect jungle nursery set for my registry. It's tough finding smiling animals! I had to do a bit of searching, but I found my nursery photos from the house I owned when Gav was born. I showed these pictures to Gav as I put together this post. He of course didn't remember his room. He only lived there until he was about 2 1/2. But he let me know that loved what his nursery looked like.


See the kitty in the corner? That's Mizzy Girl. She ran away and got lost :( She was the best kitty ever. I mean, before the running away part. 
Oh Hi Seven Week old Gav!
Pretty sure he was saying, "thanks mom, glad you picked out a cool nursery theme for me."

 ***
Fast forward 6 1/2 years. (Yikes, it's been a long time since I had an infant!)
Gav and I currently live in an apartment. It's a nice apartment in a very nice community. I don't want you all to read this and think it's an 'oh woe is me' post on how I couldn't afford bedding for my son.  It's just that it was not a priority or a need.

It's a little tough for me to decorate because I am creative in many ways, but interior design is not one of those creative ways. Keep that in mind with Gav's room's 'before' photos. We are more about function than anything else. And living in an apartment means we cannot paint the walls.

Before
 Gav has a bed from Ikea with pull-out drawers for extra storage. He has a sofa in his room that folds into a bed for when company comes over. Gav has vinyl super hero stickers for his walls he rearranges pretty much weekly.

Gav has a plain white Ikea comforter. Nothing too exciting. 

 Gav has a Toy Story sheet set he's using the pillow from and fleece sheets. PS - Gav is 6, and he knows not to stick things in outlets. There is no need for outlet covers because he understands electricity.

After
The Teyo's Tires bed set added some much-needed color and contrast in Gav's room. The tire track bed skirt hides the drawers under Gav's bed.

 The variety of patterns and prints create interest and excitement in the design.


 There are really nice details on the reversible comforter like the puckered stitching to make it extra puffy.


The orange trim is sooo soft!

Gav LOVES his new bedding set. He picked it out himself from One Grace Place.

 There are lots of adorable nursery sets as well as big kid bedding and everything in between by One Grace Place.

Here are some of my favorites:

  2. Umm... you are awesome! It would be awesome to have a new bedding set for Henry's (almost...okay, maybe not almost..) finished room. Especially since I think we decided to leave the crib in our room and just get him a 'big boy' bed to put up there since he won't be going upstairs by himself for a little while.
