123 decorate

Just spied an O&L mention over at Apartment Therapy –our Forrest 123 Wall Art was picked by Beth Callaghan, in her recent roundup of number-related children’s decor.


All our wall art is printed on 28 x 20″ recycled paper, to fit a standard-sized frame. Forrest 123 and ABC options are available to view and buy for $20 in our shop. Thanks to Beth & AT for the mention.

fresh mention

Not sure how I missed this ’til now – probably because we’ve been crazy busy – but, earlier this month, Lauren at Apartment Therapy kindly included O&L in a list of her favorite kids’ bedding sources…

Lauren’s five bedding picks represent “eye-catching designs and spot-on colors, perfectly suited for adults and children alike” – that’s precisely our M.O. Lauren, so thanks for including us!

animal decor

Thought I’d share three very different pieces of wall decor that caught my eye last week, All are connected by an animal theme and all would look great in or out of the nursery.

I spied these stylized African Mammal prints on Coochicoos. This limited edition portrait set by Josh Brill was available from Lumadessa. I say ‘was’ as they’re marked ‘sold out’.

There’s an 8-bit revival going on, echoed by Google Map’s April Fool’s release. I love this adhesive vinyl alligator – spotted on Apartment Therapy – and designed by Puxxle.

And finally, these cardboard ‘trophies’. I can’t recall exactly how I stumbled upon these, but I’m pleased I did. We are SO getting one. Check them out at Cardboard Safari.

How did I miss this?! Another nursery featuring our Egg ABC wall art. In fact, it was this nursery that inspired the inclusion of our wall art in Abigail’s room, posted on Monday.

This nursery has plenty of online pedigree. Originally posted by mom Amanda on MODG, it also won Apartment Therapy’s ‘small kids, big color‘. And it belongs to baby Gavin…

Though I’m more than a little late to this party, and our wall art (below) only plays a minor role, I just had to share it. The bold blend of aqua, green and grey creates real drama.

And the furniture choices are fantastic. Unbelievably, the dresser above (which I adore!) was a $30 Craigslist buy, sanded, stained and painted to achieve a fabulous end result.

Check the orignal MODG post and read all about the room in Apartment Therapy’s Nursery Tour. Thanks to Amanda for making O&L a small part of this amazing room.

easter egg

Topical timing for Easter Monday, as I just spotted our Egg ABC wall art in a recent post – Abigail’s Yellow & Grey DIY Nursery – over on O&L favorite, Apartment Therapy.

Mom Janna had originally posted pics of the nursery on her own blog, TWSST, in January. At this point, before Abigail arrived, it appears she was affectionately known as “baby t”.

Although our Egg range has been discontinued, this teal-colored ABC wall art is available to buy from our clearance section for just $15! Thanks to Janna for choosing O&L.
