If you follow O+L on Instagram, you’ll notice we’ve been posting lots of toddler bedding –we’ve been playing around with combinations, and photographing them, here in our home. We love how it all looks. Find everything on our kids room page.
Jake first appeared here in 2010. Five years on, a heartwarming update from mom, Jenny: “I just wanted to send you a message of thanks! I had to capture this moment today…
When I was pregnant with my first born little love, Jake, back in 2008. I searched high and low for the perfect bedding for him. I found it…over in England. But little did I know that that blanket was the best decision I made.
From three days old in the top picture, to almost six years old in the bottom picture, he’s snuggled with his “Circle Blanket” (as he named it) every single day. And that blanket has gone lots of places and comforted us lots of times through the last six years.”
“It’s our “everything’s going to be ok blanket”, our “I don’t feel good, let’s snuggle blanket”, our “don’t touch that bubba, that’s MY blanket blanket”. It’s lots of things to this now big boy, but it’s my memories and the one thing that started my whole mommyhood journey.
So grateful I found this beloved “Circle Blanket” for my boy all those years ago, because it now means the world to me…and him!! Thanks again for a wonderful product that has held up tremendously through these six years and still going strong!”
–you really made our day, Jenny. We’re so pleased that our Circle (AKA “George”) blanket has been such a comfort to you guys over the years. Thanks SO much for sharing.
Canada retail update –you can now find the latest O+L designs at ella+elliot in Toronto. Love this amazing winter window display…but I can almost feel how cold it is. Brrrr.
Much warmer inside. Digging the rich wood, and the Eames Hang it All. And that’s our mini triangle crib sheet + charcoal crib skirt + our crib of choice –the Oeuf Sparrow.
Back outside, the window seems to change with the seasons –here’s a look back at the gorgeous fall display, complete with leafy accompaniment. Can’t wait for spring.
We should have visited Toronto when we lived in Boston –now it’s a stretch from California. One day. Anyhow, if you’re in the area, this would be a cool store to go see.
So much going on, I forgot to share this here. And by “this” I mean our new black and white ABC/123 wall art. So here it is, in all its monochrome glory. Also in the O+L shop.
It’s been too long since O+L featured in the pages of Dwell Magazine (last time was the 2010 Buyers’ Guide) but we’re back –in another special issue, the Buyer’s Sourcebook.
A small mention, but we’ll take it –that’s our black cross crib sheet (below, top-right). Our new look is definitely a better fit for Dwell Magazine, so we hope to feature again soon.
Bad news: our Holiday Sale has just ended. Good news: our Winter Sale has just begun. This is the best O+L discount you’ll see until Thanksgiving, so it’s a great time to buy. Hope you’ve made a bright start to 2015.
It’s been one crazy year –we took a long look at what we do, reinvented O+L, and fell in love all over again –happily, you guys love our new look too. We’re rounding-out 2014 with some favorite pics, shared by our lovely customers [click any to view on Instagram].
@jessicalorren shared her minimal white nursery (we approve completely) including our gray crib skirt, back in April –kind of a precursor to O+L’s new direction.
Monica @moni_lo_424 shared this cute pic of baby Isaac, who seems more interested in eating wooden blocks than checking out our limited edition triangle pillow, behind him.
Nikki @epicdanger has been a fan/friend since we started O+L –she’s embracing the new look, with black/gray cross bedding and a Weave blanket for “Baby 4.0 AKA Hutch”.
Another good friend of O+L, Karen @destinationeichler shared this delightful pic of twin gray foxes –these are by far the most popular of our Danish soft toys, by Maileg.
Ashly @simplesoulshop went big on black and white, and included another new O+L addition –House Industries Slab Blocks (top-left) designed and made in the USA.
Another black and white ensemble (and another cute panda!) via @emiliemelisandre and featuring our black Nordic cross crib sheet –again purchased from @designlifekids
Last-up, Lindsay @marlais22 kindly shared this cool pic of (you guessed it) Dylan, expertly modeling House Industries Slab Blocks, on our Twig charcoal crib sheet.
Thanks to all the folks who shared, and everyone else who supported O+L in 2014 –we really do appreciate it. We wish you all a happy and prosperous new year, and look forward to seeing you again in 2015.
Place an O+L order today and there’s a chance you’ll get your goodies by Christmas (depending on where you are). But there’s one gift we can guarantee you’ll get.
Yep, an O+L gift card. Pick a value from $20-$200 and we’ll email you a printable PDF, with a unique one-use code. The perfect last-minute gift for parents-to-be.
Meet Rock & Pebble, another addition to our gifts+toys lineup, and makers of some truly adorable stuff. A great match for O+L –R&P are based in California, and make everything in the US and UK.
We picked their Modern Pebbles (above) and Pear House (below) for our collection. And you can win your own set of Modern Pebbles, plus along a set of cross wall decals in our Instagram giveaway, going on right now.
If you’re an impatient sort, or never win anything (like me) you could just skip the wait and buy everything now, from the O+L shop. Then again, this could be your lucky day…
