Nursery Decorative Pillows


One inexpensive way to add a little color and character to your baby's room is to use a few nursery decorative pillows. Pottery Barn Kids has an extensive collection of pillows to choose from, including a line of holiday headrests. Once December hits, you can put out the pillow that has a postcard to Santa on the front, or decorate with the pillow that stands tall in the shape of a Christmas tree. There's also a set that is a little more plain with strips of red, green and white across the front.


If you are looking to decorate a little boy's room, you'll discover pillows that come with popular cartoon and movie characters on them. Your son won't be able to resist the Star Wars pillows. Go with the original Millennium Falcon or R2D2 pillows, or pick the newer BB-8 model. We also have a few different Batman pillows if your child has a love for superheroes. Of course, there are other things little boys often love that have been incorporated into our decorated pillows. Our sports headrests come in soccer, baseball and football, while the airplanes, construction vehicles and dinosaur pillows are quite popular.


Should it be a little girl you're shopping for, we have just the thing. When accenting the baby girl bedding you already have, try one of the fur animals. Not only are they soft and fun to cuddle, but they come in pink, white, gray and brown, so you're sure to find one that matches your bedding set. Girls will also love the shiny sequined star or heart-shaped pillows, as well as the jeweled owl or swan headrests. The cloud and moon pillows represent sweet dreams or you can go with the heart-shaped watercolor pillows that represent kindness and caring.


A decorative sham is an excellent choice if you already have a few pillows you can use. There are colorful shams, like the Merry and Bright shams, which feature vibrant tassels on each of the four corners, and decorative shams with cute animals on the front, such as a Dalmatian with a bowtie and glasses. If it's style and elegance you're after, there are shams for that as well. Go with the pearl dot, medallion or embroidered Euro sham that each offers a chic look, or go with the diamond geo shams, which are a little more on the sophisticated side.


Whether you're interested in the pillow or the sham, we offer the option to have your decorative piece personalized. Begin by deciding if you'd like to have your child's full name displayed on the item, or whether you prefer to just use his or her initials. Next, select the thread color with which you'd like your son or daughter's name to be embroidered. Finally, you'll get to pick the font. You can go with a simple font, or one that is a bit fancier. With so many options, you're sure to end up with a decorative nursery pillow or sham that is truly unique.


Knowing which material you prefer is another aspect in selecting the right pillows and shams for your nursery. The washed velvet has a soft texture and is extremely fashionable, while the Belgian flax linen is more classic in its design. If you're looking for eco-friendly, we have an organic line of pillows and shams that are made from 100 percent organic cotton percale. All are easy to clean at home using your washing machine, should the baby soil them in any way. Always use the gentle cycle and tumble dry on low heat if you don't want to hang them outside to dry.
