just the type

Karen trained in graphic design, me in journalism –so, no surprise we love typography. Plenty of ways to add typography to your nursery, play space, or elsewhere in your home. Here are some of our favorites, including two from the O+L shop.

sketch + arrow

Meet our newest patterns –Sketch, a delicate blush/white crosshatch, on 100% cotton percale + Arrow, a gray/white (you guessed it) arrow design, on heavyweight cotton twill. Pair both for the perfect modern, with a touch of ‘pink’ nursery.

circle blanket

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.”

jake-before+after

“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.

ella+elliot

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.

ella+elliot-winter

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.

ella+elliot-room-set

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.

ella+elliot-fall

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.
