Fashions change rapidly through the years, with colors and patterns gaining and loosing popularity. It has been said that everything old comes around again, and we can see this is true even in baby bedding. A retro nursery can be achieved easily through just a few simple colors, patterns, or prints based on classic styles. Many manufacturers have created contemporary nursery bedding collections drawn from retro and vintage design. Here are several nursery bedding collections based on styles and colors from days gone by.

The easiest way to bring the past into the modern nursery is with a nursery bedding collection featuring a vintage print.
