aussie double

Two new mentions to tell you about. First, The Grace Tales included our cross crib sheet, in their “shop the look” post, featuring Australian Cosmopolitan editor Bronwyn McCahon.

Next, Nest Etc. included our mini triangle crib quilt, in their post about Australia’s unseasonably wintery weather.

Thanks both, for spreading the O+L love down-under.

twig and nest

As you probably know, we’ve made some big changes at O+L, refocusing on our modern design principles. At the core of this shift were two new patterns, Twig and Nest.

twig-pattern-charcoal

This is Twig. It has an organic, natural feel. And it’s a subtle pattern, thanks to minimal color contrast –the charcoal version features two grays, and pool features two blues.

twig-pattern-pool

Its subtlety makes this pattern tricky to photograph from a distance, at least if you want to show the detail. But these closeups should give you a good feel for the design.

twig-charcoal-room

Twig charcoal/pool comes in crib sheets ($55) and crib quilts ($85).

twig-quilt-pool

This is Nest. An even more subtle pattern. Close up you can see the delicate crosshatch. Again, color contrast is minimal, in both the gray and pool versions.

nest-pattern-gray

Nest gray/pool comes in crib sheets ($55) and changing pad covers ($35).

nest-pattern-pool

Both these designs pair well with our solid colored crib skirts, for an ultra-modern look.

nest-sheet-gray

We like Twig and Nest so much, we even used the name for a spin-off company. Twig+Nest is the ‘adult’ version of O+L…that sounds kinda wrong, but hopefully you get me –same aesthetic, larger sizes. And more products to come.

project nursery

Our new look just got the Project Nursery seal of approval. Junior editor, Courtney Barbe (due in under two weeks!) picked our Nest crib sheet and Pool crib skirt, for her “vintage modern boy’s nursery” design board. Thanks Courtney, and good luck!

shop dlk

We’ve followed DESIGN + LIFE + KIDS for a while. Founder, Kim Wardell, has a great eye for design, so when she launched shop DLK, we wanted in. Happily, Kim agreed O+L was a good fit. And that was that.

shop-dlk

“DLK is a carefully curated collection of children’s fashion, accessories, toys and decor for the modern aesthetic loving family” –that collection includes our cross crib quilts and sheets, plus cross, dot and triangle wall decals.

O+L-DLK-giveaway

And this week we partnered DLK on something else –an Instagram giveaway. One lucky winner gets our black cross crib quilt, gray cross crib sheet, and black dot wall decals. Enter via the link. Ends on Sunday.

O+L-DLK-prize

Not only does Kim have great taste, she’s an amazing person, and a pleasure to work with. We wish her every success, and hope this is the start of a long and happy relationship between DLK and O+L.

black + white nursery

Our new shop has a design inspiration section, explaining current themes, and how/why they work. This will evolve and grow, as we do, and I’ll share everything here, starting with (as you may have guessed) black and white.

black-and-white-nursery-1

A staple of Nordic design, black and white is truly in our comfort zone, speaking to Karen’s roots –we were both born in England, but half of Karen’s family hail from Denmark. Anyhow, this look is all about simplicity and contrast.

black-and-white-nursery-2

Keep walls white and flooring either light or very dark. Build texture with highly contrasted textiles. If you want to soften the palette, choose light or charcoal grays and add textured, monochromatic blankets, pillows and toys.

black-and-white-nursery-3

For an authentic Nordic feel, you should avoid color accents altogether –this look is at the high end of nursery design, but we appreciate it’s not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’. Want more? Shop everything black and white, and see our design inspiration pages.
