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.

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.

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