Thanks to Chris Hadfield, the cachet of astronauts is through the roof.
And thanks to this awesome comforter set by Snurk Amsterdam ($95 at Simons), bedtime is synonymous with launch o’clock for lucky little ones. (Of course, astronauts may come and go but princesses are forever.)
We only have one criticism about these too-cute comforters: They only come in twin sizes. – Christine Laroche

Time to Heather the nest.
A cozy new concept to Calgary, The Heather Company brings deluxe European-inspired (but made -in Canada) fabrics and bedding to your boudoir. Just like we are seeing the mixing of prints in fashion, the same goes for your home. We love this combination of the Addison Aqua print mixed with Chevron Natural pillow.

After appearing on tennis courts in 1933, the green crocodile has been sported on the courts, off the courts, and everywhere in between.
Now the company behind the classic tennis tee has brought that laidback feel of sportswear to the bedroom with the Lacoste Home Collection. Choose from a handful of different sets, each one inspired by the bright colours and modern styles of Lacoste’s ready-to-wear collections. The duvet sets start at $200 for twin ($250 for queen) and can be paired with solid twill sheets (from $70) and a croco-knit throw ($110). Finish off the bedroom with a classic crocodile print cushion (from $70).
Love all, indeed.

If you're tired of bedtime begging ("one more story!," "ten more minutes of playtime!"), we've found a cozy way to get junior to bed faster than Goodnight Moon.
Canadian line Sassy Brats offers stylish bedding options for kids of all ages. For your future astronaut you can’t go wrong with this Blast Off twin set ($420, pictured) and we love the Molly crib set for precious little peas ($449).
The 100 per cent cotton is extra thick and comfortable, which means a (hopefully) tantrum-free sleep.
Sweet dreams are made of this.
