olli and lime and gavin

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.

dwell pick-up

A while back, I mentioned that we’d been featured in Dwell’s 2010 Buyers’ Guide. We had trouble tracking down a copy in the UK, but I thought I’d have no such issues in Boston.


I was wrong. And after hours scouring Borders, Barnes & Noble et al, we’d all but given up hope. Luckily, we spied one at Logan Airport, in Hudson News, just before departure!

Our Egg blanket only makes a small appearance (top LH page) but we’re very proud to make the guide; the style bible for design. And now we have our very own copy, yay!

olli and lime and twins

You wait ages for a customer photo post, then three come along at once! Anyway, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one, featuring cheeky 9-month-old twin boys, Xavier and Vander…

Mum Melanie, of Nova Scotia, kindly sent us this amazing pic (by Johanna Matthews) which features our Egg bedding with brown George wallpaper. Good work guys!

dwell buyers’ guide

Fantastically positive news to round-off this week (you can tell I’m excited!), we’ve been featured in Dwell’s 2010 Buyers’ Guide, showcasing editors’ top design picks for the year!

No shot of the inside, as I don’t yet have a copy. I was (embarrassingly) alerted by a PR agency, touting for business! Thanks to Sam, who’s clearly far more on the ball than me.

Anyway, our mention (on page 118) ironically features our – now discontinued – Egg blanket. And we still have some available in our sale, at 70% off!

so long egg

Brace yourselves. We’ve taken the difficult decision to discontinue Egg, due to issues with manufacture. Each time we print, a large proportion gets wasted. It’s just not sustainable.

To commiserate, get up to 70% off blankets, pillows, sleeping bags, wall art, bib & burp sets and changing mats. You’ll also find samples and slight seconds from our other ranges.

Click for the clearance page. And fear not, we’ll be revealing a brand new design, to fill Egg’s swirly-patterned, turquoise shoes, in the new year.

pregnancy and newborn

Two consecutive media posts, both for magazines with “pregnancy” in the title? Don’t get the wrong idea, this is not me subtly hinting at something! No, it’s pure coincidence…

When I was writing the last post, an email came through from our friends at Pregnancy & Newborn to say we’re in their October issue, which is very cool. Click pic to zoom in…

I say “friends” as they’ve featured us multiple times now; the last I posted about back in February. This one features our Egg quilt, as part of a ‘blue’ round-up. Thanks P&N.

end of year egg sale

OK, as it’s Christmas (well, almost) we’ve conjured up another offer…in addition to our FREE shipping deal. And no, we’re not selling eggs, we’re selling our ‘Egg’ range…


…as expertly modelled by Milo! We’re taking 20% off ANYTHING Egg. That’s nursery bedding, fabric, baby accessories and wall art. The only thing excluded is wall murals.


The offer runs until December 31 2009. Happy Christmas…shopping. Oh, with turquoise named color of the year for 2010, we’ve extended our Egg sale ’til the end of January.

november 09 special offer

Although we’re on hols, it’s business as usual. So, another offer this month, and a simple one at that. Buy anything from our ‘Egg’ range, get 20% off…


Yep, just enter ‘nov09’ at checkout to apply the discount. Told you it was simple.

pumpkin and pear

No, not a new ice-cream flavour (more’s the pity!), just the perfect way to introduce two newly available fabric designs in…um…pumpkin and pear.


As you may know, we’re in the midst of a seconds and sample sale. We’re clearing some old stock, plus some slightly imperfect new stuff…all at crazy prices.


Mid-rummage, we unearthed fabric from our two ‘retired’ Egg designs. Behold, (seasonal) pumpkin and pear! Both are £6/$9 per metre/yard, to make curtains, blinds or whatever you like.
