DS is 10 and we're not far off moving into the house that we're building so I'd like to buy him a new quilt cover.
He currently has this really cute dinosaur linen from Adairs which we both love, but I think its a little babyish for him these days.
I had my eyes on a red and taupe London bus set (for want of a better descripton - I cant remember the brand) which has now been discontinued and I cannot find it anywhere.
So, wondering if anyone knows of any nice bedlinen for an older child that is decent quality?
Not too worried about price, just after something that doesnt involve cartoon characters and is a classic style, maybe in red, navy or taupe?
Any links would be appreciated - I have scoured all the usual spots like little linen, come inside, sheridan etc to no avail - much of it is geared for a younger child up to about age 8 I feel

I have quilts from ezibuy for my boys but have looked at etsy, and googled Tommy Hilfiger as they have nice covers from US..depends on your budget. I have never bought cars, or cartoon characters on any of my boys doonas and now we have quilts...another good one is wallace cotton (beautiful quality).

What size are you after?

I have a gorgeous BNIP Sheridan boys quilt cover in DB size, my DS got too "old" for it before I could use it.

PM me if you would like further info  biggrin.gif

www.nextdirect.com have some nice boys stuff, and free delivery to Australia.

Pottery Barn have some nice items too, but I don't know what postage would be like.
