Blankets for your baby
A few years a go I went to Bergen, Norway for a summer holiday with my family. In Bergen downtown I suddenly found these soft, colorful knitted blankets by Oleana that are all made of natural fibers like wool, silk, alpaca or cashmere. I was amazed by the beautiful patterns en designs!
They somewhere reminded me of Dutch label Oilily, but it was different; more inspired by nature and softer. This Oleana collection is produced in a factory only in Norway and fairmade, which is always a good thing. I didn’t buy a piece at that time, probably too dazzled, but luckily they have stores around the world. Now, I think of it, I definitely need to visit one soon!

My favorite bedding….
Kids grow! My little boy became too big for his baby bed. For me a great opportunity to refurnish his room. But –maybe you recognize this- a job that seems to be small, usually becomes bigger and bigger. Starting with just his room, I ended up painting all the rooms of my three children! For the girls rooms lots of pink (they still love it) and in the boys room, I used light and dark blue, combined with red.
At the end, when the painting part was over, it was nice to find the right accessories. Very important is –of course- the bedding. A long time ago, I’ve seen a particular bedding from Fresh! Home collection. It’s checkered blue and white with a big red star in the middle. Exactly the colors I’ve used for his room. That bedding wasn’t available for a baby bed, but now finally my son has the right size!
I’m happy with the result and very important too, my little boy loves this bedding. It’s his favorite! When he goes to bed, and I give him a big hug, it’s nice to muffle him under the big star: sweet dreams
On the picture you see also a blanket from room seven (http://www.roomseven.com). It used to be on the baby bed, but now it’s still nice to play with; to built a hut for example.

This week I'm getting help for the BKids' posts from some really nice and creative ladies from around the globe. I have asked them to do a short write-up about their favorite bedding. Often people send me emails what kind of bedding I like... I will share 'that' next week with you :)
One of the guest bloggers you will meet this week, or already have met last week, will become one of BKids' new regular contributors... very exciting and curious to hear which 'bedding-post' you really like.
Today we start with Guest post written by Marieke van Proosdij.
It's a boy!....
A few years ago, when I found out I was pregnant, my boyfriend and I where thrilled. Some time later, when they told us I was going to have a baby boy, I could not believe what I was hearing..a boy??? Oh 'boy', what to do? I'm completely a girly girl type, you know. Not particularly the color pink but I just love prints all over. I love retro and flowers in any kind and shape. Especially in a print on my wallpaper. I love skirts and dresses and all these lovely little things you can buy for a baby girl's room. I'm crazy about all kinds off fabric and making my own pillowcases and was already dreaming of all the lovely textiles I was going to prepare for the nursery...Some busy months came around, work and moving to another house. So I put my little 'problem' on the side.
When our son got his one year anniversary, his dad and I decided to make his room a bit less baby and a bit more boyish. We fell in love with almost all the textiles from Tante Ted. Not to mention all these products made off old blankets!
There's lot's of fun stuff for a boys room of different ages too. My boy is just 16 months now, so we keep it a bit simple with shapes and forms he get's interested in. Like all these little insects crawling around in our garden. How funny to put these prints on pillowcases and wall stickers. Just see for yourself at Tante Ted's site for more great stuff!
