    Transitioning to a Toddler Bed with duduc!

    November 1, 2018

    It’s hard to believe that we’re already transitioning away from the crib into a larger “big boy” bed but here we are!   Everybody tells you how quickly it goes but it truly is exceptionally swift.   The bed arrived before we left for the summer and he was hooked, it was our number one toy for a period of time.   Now that we are settling back in at home, we have quickly adjusted and he couldn’t be happier.

    I love crawling into a bed which has enough space for us to read a book side by side, rather than cramming into our rocker.   The side rail is critical for now but can be removed later as he grows.

    When searching for his bed, I wanted to find an eco-friendly piece (which I did for our crib and mattresses, too).   In steps ducduc, a NYC-based, Connecticut-constructed custom furniture brand which makes each piece to order and so you can control the design and colors.   We also ordered a matching table which holds a spool of paper for endless arts and crafts.   These pieces will transition well as our son grows and are durably made ensuring that they will last for years to come — of course, they are already being thoroughly enjoyed!


    The room is softened with all of our lovely Annie Selke textiles, from the layered rugs to the soft sheets and pillows, I can always count on her to provide cozy pieces which complete the room!   Here are my favorites:

    fish sheets, white cotton blanket, white bed skirt, french blue bed skirt, hemstitch duvet cover, Ibiza French Blue Pillow (**!), Herringbone French Blue Rug, Star Rug… Xx!
