Big Birthday Bash – Day 13

Today’s spotlight is on beautiful US label Oilo, known all around the globe for its divine bed linen. Style conscious mamas from Australia have been ordering their dream nursery pieces from the United States, simply because here in Australia there is nothing that comes even close to their stunning designs. I am so excited to share some amazing Oilo nursery looks with you, be prepared to fall in love:

Oilo Zara

Proudly designed and made in the United States Oilo is the ultimate in designer nurseries, offering a delightful range of cot linen and accessories that would make any nursery look magazine worthy. The contemporary prints, exquisite finishes, high quality materials and natural colours make Oilo a hot favourite for nursery decor.

Oilo PillowThe Oilo crib (our Australian cot) bedding collection includes patterned crib sheets, crib bumpers and crib skirts which are all sold separately so you can put together your dream baby room piece by piece. Oilo’s fitted crib sheets are made from 100% cotton 300-thread count sateen, so they are not only stylish but super soft too (perfect for your precious little bundle). All sheets are fully machine washable, we all know we’d rather cuddle our babies than spend hours washing by hand.

To compliment your Oilo nursery you can choose from a range of matching accessories like change pad covers, blankets, capsule canopies and pillows. Manufactured from 100 percent woven cotton and encased in a high-quality zippered enclosure, Oilo’s dacron-filled pillows make a lovely finishing touch your baby room, bedroom and even living room. I think they would look gorgeous in a feeding chair or reading sofa, which design is your favourite?

Mockingbird Street

I am sure you know what it is like, you stumble upon something online (or instore) and you fall in love with it straight away. You try and try very hard to forget all about it but you can’t and you keep going back to look at it. Well that’s exactly what happened to me when I first spotted the Mockingbird Street range at Bean and Me

Gumnut Cot Sheets

As soon as I saw the Gumnut collection for little girls I was sold. The beautiful warm and inviting colours, the delightful (and very Australian) gumnut print, simple but classy polkadots and last but absolutely not least the lovely 300 thread count certified organic and Fairtrade cotton, it is a winning combination. I have already added this stunning set to my wishlist for baby Sybil, it would look amazing in her nursery.

Gumnut Cot QuiltCreated by the talented Bonnie and Emily Australian children’s homewares label Mockingbird Street delivers stylish, high quality products that are gentle on the skin and the environment (ecofriendly, sustainable material choices) and fair on the people that make them. When you buy certified Fairtrade goods you can rest assured that both farmers and factory workers receive a fair and stable pay and child labour is prohibited. You are also investing in community development through health, education and environmental programmes.

Village Cot QuiltThe current Mockingbird Street range consists of two collections: Gumnut for beautiful little girls and Village for hip boys. Each collection can be purchased as a set ($179.90) with double sided cot quilt, flat sheet and fitted sheet, all pieces are suitable for standard and Boori cots. You can also buy the quilt and sheets separately which is ideal if you never use top sheets, just take two fitted sheets instead and still pay the same price (See, they’re fair on you too!).

Village Cot Sheets

Neutral, natural and beautiful: Baby Luxe Organic (Free shipping)

May 152012

Although these days many people find out the gender of their unborn baby I myself loved the excitement of not knowing. I chose not to find out for the twins or our youngest daughter and will never forget that short moment after the birth when you don’t know yet if you have just been blessed with a son or daughter (both equally welcome of course). If you are preparing a gender neutral nursery you will love the neutral and natural Baby Luxe Organic range from Gummy Babies.

As your baby will be spending the majority of the day sleeping in his or her bed it is very important to select bedlinen that is safe from harsh chemicals and gentle on the skin. The Baby Luxe Organic Sheets are available in bassinet ($26) or cot ($40, fits Boori too) size. The snug fitting sheet will provide a safe sleep environment for your baby while the specially designed patented safety stay-on corners and extra deep sides will keep the sheet neatly in place.

The matching Baby Luxe Organic Cotton Herringbone Blanket ($64) will not only complete your neutral nursery look but it is also perfect for in the pram, car or when travelling. The double layer of soft organic cotton is sure to keep your baby snuggly warm this winter. The classic herringbone structure and dark brown edging are timeless and will not date, a quality investment that will be enjoyed for a long time.

Especially in the early days you will use the change table a lot, during the countless nappy changes but also to get baby dried and dressed. With the Baby Luxe Organic Cotton Terry Change Pad Cover ($27) you can rest assured that your baby will be super comfortable. The terrycloth middle panel is highly absorbent and will be very soft for baby’s delicate skin. The natural colour makes this a beautiful addition to any little boys or girls nursery, and a lovely practical present for an unborn baby too.
