Young children usually ask for a themed bedroom decor. With the right dosage, you can give them what they want without looking like a kit. The key is to mix and match.
When I design a bedroom, I usually start by finding the main fabric. The duvet cover should be the star of any kids bedroom. The sheets play a supporting role. Go for a duvet cover pattern with several colours since it is easier to accessorize. I mix accessories from other brands or collections to create a unique look.
I discover Hiccups last week on a shopping trip to Simons in Montreal. The duvet covers by this Australian bedding makes it easy to decorate a bedroom because they are quite versatile. Their patterns feature the right dose of themed elements. I love what they do.
For a Little Boy’s Room
I’m Super Bedding $95 CAD at Simons
It was love at first sight when I saw the “I am Super” twin duvet cover. Every little boy dreams to have a super power or to be friend with a super hero. I like that the super hero characters move across a modern cityscape. There are so many colours in the fabric that you can put your twist on it.
For a Little Girl’s Room
Although Hiccups showcases these duvet covers with pink sheets, you are not limited to pink. Even if most little girls do, not every little girl dreams of a pink bedroom. These two patterns gives you options.
Little Red Riding Hood bedding currently on sale at $69.95 CAD at Simons
For toddlers, I like the Little Red Riding Hood theme. Look for forest theme accessories to finish the look. You can go very natural if you prefer more subtle tones.
From Kas Kids, another Australian bedding company, I love the Abbey Quilt Cover set. You can either go Indian style to enhance the magical elephants or highlight the modern geometric shapes.This means that you could keep the same duvet cover and simply update the accessories to get another look.
If you are looking for a bargain, this Bicycle in the City theme duvet set is on sale at $29.95 CAD at Simons.

LOVE this. The Little Red is in my shopping cart right now. I’m ordering a mushroom pillow to go with it too: http://www.simons.ca/eng/product/3d_mushroom_cushion_/7044-5121100 I just wish they sold the red polka dot sheets too – I love them. Was trying to find something similar online but can’t. Thanks for the ideas!!

Just saw this pinned on Pinterest. Can you help me find where to purchase the boys duvet cover? I can’t seem to locate it. Might be too late.

Valerie, I am afraid so. The boys beddings are made by an Australian company called Hiccups. I noticed that they are no longer available at Simons, which was the only store, that I am aware of, who carried them in North America.
