Basketball was life at my house growing up. My dad coached, we all played and eventually I coached and officiated. These days, my niece is carrying on the obsession, er … tradition. So I understand the passion that would make someone want a basketball bedroom.
I’m still on the hunt for bedding in this theme as there’s a woeful lack of it. But check out what I’ve found so far. It’ll get you off to a great start. There are also blankets and pillows I’ve found that could be added to a room with a different design on the bed to add in a touch of the theme. (Think one would go with my niece’s pink and black zebra comforter?)
Pair up some of these styles with items in your school colors or with ones from your favorite pro or college team.
The options are limited here – really limited. In fact, the two sets here – both duvets, both with orange – are all I’ve been able to find to date. Sigh. So I hope you like orange! I’m hoping to track down more neutral designs or even some fabric you could use to make your own set.

Give the severe lack of choices for this theme, this is definitely a time to consider going custom. Plus, it makes it easier for you to work in school colors or do a design that works better for girls. Fortunately, lots of fabric options, including pink. I found these at fabric.com; they’re just $9-$10 a yard. (And they offer free shipping on orders over $35 and give you a 37″ yard. Nice.)
