Catalina Collections

When planning out your childʼs bedroom, one option is to have a theme in mind from day one. If you need a little inspiration, you have carte blanche to get creative by what you see available. Itʼs fun to build on ideas and motifs your child will grow to love as he or she grows. One of the most important aspects of your nursery or childʼs bedroom is the furniture. You want pieces that are not only comfortable and safe for your child but also work well when the child is a baby and as he or she grows into a toddler and school-age child. Collections like our Catalina Collection at Pottery Barn Kids work well with colors that are sure to complement any existing decor, offering cute and elegant designs that both you and your child are sure to love. From crib to toddler bed, itʼs seamless and enjoyable to decorate your childʼs nursery or bedroom.


When you shop a collection, the furniture is meant to complement each other. While you can purchase a set, such as one for a childʼs bedroom, you can also build a set piece by piece, mixing and matching with other collections. You can also opt for the pieces you want from your chosen collection – itʼs all up to you. Each bedroom set collection features the basic furniture you need for a toddler’s or younger childʼs room, such as a bed, mattress, dresser and table. You can customize and create your own set, so if you need only a bed and dresser but have your own mattress already, the shopping process is simple. The Catalina Collectionʼs furniture is crafted with a solid wood veneer and MDF construction. MDF is a fabricated fiberboard that is heavy duty and designed to stand up to years of use, providing both strength and comfort. Collections also come in a variety of different colors, such as gray, black and white.


If you are opting to buy furniture by the piece, take into consideration you current and future needs or hopes for the room. If you are looking to build the nursery first and are expecting a new arrival, items like a dresser with a topper or a changing table are great space savers and versatile furniture. If you are upgrading to a toddler room from a nursery, items like a nightstand and bookcase become that much more important for your growing child. For a child who is beginning kindergarten or elementary school, you may want to consider a desk and chair set, or a hutch and desk set, as there is bound to be some homework and studying in your childʼs future.


If you are just at the beginning planning stages of a nursery but want to buy a crib that converts into a toddler bed easily, there are many of those available in addition to conversion kits that turn your present crib into a toddler bed. Making the move to a big boy or big girl bed can be quite exciting for your child, and itʼs definitely a plus to have a piece of furniture that your son or daughter is already used to, along with one that complements your existing decor and colors.


Other pieces available to complete your collection may include items like a magazine rack, which is also quite handy for childrenʼs books and journals; storage systems to keep everything in order; and a bunk bed if youʼre planning on having another addition to the family at some point or to allow sleepovers for your child. If youʼd like to match items from the collection to your existing furniture, wood swatches are also available so you have ample time to prepare and compare colors and materials.
