The New ‘It’ Animal For Nurseries

Here come the hedgehogs

We’ve been spotting hedgehogs everywhere lately, and sure enough the New York-based nursery design duo My Tiny Nest confirmed the trend. “We can’t help but fall in love with these cute and cuddly creatures,” say owners Alessia Corpino and Julie Frank. “We’ve had fun recently, working elements of the little woodlanders into our nursery schemes.” Here are a few of their favorite finds.

Flensted’s Hedgehog Family Mobile ($33) adds a pop of color and a ton of cuteness, as does EarthLab’s organic cotton throw pillow ($38). For custom projects, try the forest characters or hedgehog print from Spoonflowers, who will print your purchase on any fabric you wish (from $17.50 per yard). We’ve also seen a bunch of great accent pieces, including Pottery Barn Kids’ new weighted plush bookends ($39 for a set of two); dwellstudio’s hedgehog wall hook ($28); Decoylab’s bamboo wall clock ($54); and the Land of Nod’s Hedgehog Nightlight ($99), which doubles as a side table lamp. Lastly, we love all Annette Tatum’s canvas prints—and especially the cute and calm forest hedgehog ($69)—for bringing color and pattern to every room.
