DockATot has a well-deserved reputation as a miracle sleep saver for parents—the cozy, portable little nests let newborns safely co-sleep, offer crib-sleepers a snug place to rest, and help toddlers and kids transition smoothly into bigger beds. They are also perfect for daytime play sessions, tummy time workouts, and naps on the go. And unlike so many other new-baby must-haves, DockATot has recently become known for its on-trend pattern options (think lush green botanicals or cool, subtle marbling), so parents don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality.

Luckily, the brand’s latest designs do not disappoint. The just-launched Mediterraneo Collection features five different patterns inspired by the rich hues of the Mediterranean sea and the classic whites and blues of coastal architecture. The Cyclo (seen above) features concentric circles in various shades of indigo, and was inspired by ancient Greek motifs. The slightly bolder Villa Azure is a geo-print inspired by the old-world Azulejo tiles found in Portugal. For minimalists, the clean and simple Marinière and Coastal Stripe is a modern take on the classic and distinctive French Breton stripe (one can’t help but picture a beach along the French Riviera dotted with striped blue-and white umbrellas). Then, for the maximalists, there’s the Big Blue—an explosion of blues, greens, and turquoise that is akin to taking a dive deep into the Mediterranean. (See all the designs in our slideshow below!).

And while these new patterns make for a beautiful picture (just check out the 50,000+ posts tagged #dockatot on Instagram), there is nothing quite like seeing them IRL. With that in mind, DockATot is hosting a Bay Area pop-up on Wednesday, March 6, 4-6 pm, at the Serena & Lily Design Shop (3457 Sacramento Street, San Francisco). If you live in the area, be sure to stop by for a first look at new Mediterraneo Collection and get a little dose of wanderlust while you’re at it. As a sweet bonus, DockaTot will be sticking a little something extra in everyone’s bag with purchase, plus, the first 20 shoppers will receive an additional surprise from Serena & Lily and Minnow Swim. See you there!

For those of you who can’t make the pop-up, you can shop the brand-new collection—which comes in Deluxe+ and Grand sizes—over on DockATot’s site, and in our slideshow right here.
