Last weekend, we had a welcome opportunity to mix business with pleasure –we were asked to stage a toddler room in this stunning Eichler Home, in Castro Valley, which literally just hit the market…
The house is spectacular. But, as with all Eichlers, the secondary bedrooms are relatively small. The listing agent, also our realtor, thought we could help stage one of these rooms, as a toddler bedroom.
We used our Miller toddler duvet set, paired with our gray Nest sheet, and some Jellycat soft toys. The toddler bed is the Oeuf Classic –it’s ours, but not available on our site. The room is minimal, even for our taste…
…mainly due to a lack of space –we took the trip down on short notice, so we had to make do with what would fit in our MINI Cooper! We need a bigger car. Or a trailer. Or at least a roof-rack.
The mobile was supplied by our Sacramento-based retail partner, Schmitt Design (thanks Brian!) –this is the Camber Pop, in Citrus; one of many Schmitt mobiles in our shop.
Oh, if you’d like to see more pictures of the house (and it’s well worth a look), I wrote a detailed post about it on our home restoration blog, fogmodern. Not a bad back yard outlook, eh?
If you’re interested in buying this place, it’s listed for $850K –and it’ll likely sell for more, thanks to these incredible Bay views. Lots more pics and information here. Listing pics courtesy of Thomas Westfall.
We’ve been feverishly working behind the scenes to improve O&L, creating a brand spanking new website, adding lots of new products, while giving ourselves a fresh new look in the process…
As we prepare to launch (very soon) I’ll share more right here, with sneak peeks on Facebook and Instagram. We LOVE how it’s all shaping up, and can’t wait to show you more.

Our friends at Babyology just gave our latest releases a big ‘thumbs-up’ –praise indeed from this popular Aussie site, the “place to find anything for children and parents that’s worth having”.
Also worth mentioning (as they do) that we ship to Australia, and everywhere else in the world. Big thanks to Babyology for the continued support of O&L –check out the full post here.
We’re obsessed with gray –gray bedding, gray pillows, gray walls…and so on. Gray’s a great neutral, but it needn’t be reserved for decor. This got us to thinking, what about gray cribs? So we rounded up our faves…
Oeuf Sparrow ($760) –gray version of the O&L photography crib.
Babyletto Hudson ($379) –similar looking crib for a dissimilar price.
Delta Tribeca ($300) –another budget option, with a cool-looking base.
Duc Duc Campaign II ($1795) –cool custom crib with a price to match.
Oeuf Elephant ($675) –modern, fun design with ultra-quick setup.
Hope you enjoyed our gray crib roundup. Have a favorite or your own to share –let us know. For more inspiration, see our nursery cribs Pinterest board.

Feature walls have become a nursery staple. Wallpaper, decals, paint or texture provide a great focal point. The wall behind your crib is the way to go –this highlights your crib/bedding, and provides visual stimulation for baby.
Pick neutral tones for your other walls, to avoid the room becoming too busy. This makes for an easy re-do, when the time comes. Here are some feature wall examples, via Apartment Therapy and Project Nursery…

Just found this O&L appearance at Little Baby Sea. Mom, Jessica, used our gray crib skirt (available here) in her self-titled “Mid-Century Modern Organic Neutral Nursery” –a mouthful, but it does the trick.
Jessica used a subtle, soothing palette, blending well-chosen furniture pieces with curated finds and thoughtful gifts. Mae’s nursery is sophisticated and minimal, but with bags of personality. Full tour here.
